Dozer - Beyond Colossal [2008]

Hailing from Sweden, Dozer sound like if Union Carbide Productions worshipped Pentagram and early Alice Cooper instead of The Stooges and MC5. In reading some other reviews of this album I was surprised to see the band compared to Clutch, Fu Manchu and Kyuss. There’s definite similarities with those bands, but Dozer has a much darker and original sound. Maybe their past records are more generic, but Beyond Colossal offers a refreshing change of pace from the usual 3rd rate Black Sabbath rip offs usually found in the derivative “stoner rock” genre.

Five albums in and Dozer shows no sign of slowing down. I don't think this is the greatest album in their discography (that may forever be In the Tail of a Comet), but it's certainly consistently good from start to finish. Recommended.
