Bongwater - _Pissed Off and... Fuzzed Out_
by: Adrian Bromley (4 out of 5)
Holy fuck! I am almost came in my pants after listening to this demo tape from East Coast sludge-mongers Bongwater. It rocks. Managing to pull in a varied assortment of low-tuned fuzz-sounding guitar chords influences from such bands as Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Fu Manchu, and Monster Magnet, this band hits the nail right on the head with the truly hard-hitting musical deliverance. It's so 'fuzzed out' that it sounds killer. While the production on this 6-song demo could have been better, to make the guitars sound stronger and make the vocals a bit more coherent, I'm pretty sure that that would have taken away from the raw and unpolished way of the recording. I also liked the jam, laid-back feel that the band brought to the music. While the band's music sounds a lot (A LOT!) like the last incarnation of Kyuss' material, 1995's _... And The Circus Leaves Town_ LP, I can't help but feel compelled to follow this band in the future and see what becomes of them. Again... they rock! One of my fave demos from 1997 for sure.
