Slo Burn - _Amusing the Amazing_
(Malicious Vinyl, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Four songs, 15 minutes. That's it for our first listen of Slo Burn, the new project fronted by ex-Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. And while that may not be much to keep us happy, the music, with Garcia's dynamic vocals supported by heavy, sluggish riffs, does its job and definitely leaves us with a dry mouth and thirsty for more. I am a huge Kyuss fan and while the music here is very similar to Kyuss (go figure as Garcia sings), it does provide us with more melody and grooves, something Garcia's previous band lacked at times. All four tracks sound great but "Pilot the Dune" has got to be mentioned because this is one of the coolest songs I have heard in a while. It fuckin' smokes! Fans of Kyuss, Fu Manchu, or Sleep, pick this up and you'll have more music to crank and smoke up to.
