"Distorsis" (Distorsound; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS


Distorsis is a Canadian trio armed with the capability to lay down concrete slabs of hefty hard rock swelling with melody ("Fire," "Free") while a noticeable spacey stoner rock vibe seemingly lurks overhead ("No Love Lost").

Jampacked with extended instrumental interludes brazen with swirling guitars and tribal percussion sandwiched in between a bevy of gritty guitars and beefy bass ("Angel and the Animal"), this band melds the angst of Alice in Chains, the modern metal crunch of BLS and Ozzy, and the eclectic left-turns of Hawkwind to yield a wild and heavy ride chock full of sonic surprises.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
