GEISER

"Bipolar" (Self-produced; 2011)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Geiser's "Bipolar" sounds a lot like the more psychedelic stuff of the Doors but with a heavy metal bent. It's very deliberate rock'n'roll that is passionately atmospheric, hypnotically psychedelic and features vocals that you can Jim Morrison trying had he been singing this kind of music (which, by the way, the band calls "Post-Psycho-Cock-Sludge-Metal-Noise."

 Imagine The Doors' classic "The End' with an edgier, metal/sludge slant and you get the idea. Not for everyone, of course, but unique enough to make it worth a listen.

Geiser: Huibert der Weduwen - Bass; Daan Prins - Guitar; Gerben Elburg - Baritone Guitar; Yoran van Boheemen - Drums; Kars Penninx - Vocals.

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.
