KOMATSU - the Super Massive Mothersludgers from Eindhoven have returned with their latest full length offering out now on Argonauta Records. The album entitled “A New Horizon” is a fantastic slab of Stoner Rock heaven. Mo Truijen’s (guitar/vocals) voice is majestic and powerful as it soars over dense layers of massive groove. The instrumental track – “Surfing A Landslide” is a moody psychedelic number that takes the listener on a hazy and heavy ride of epic proportions. The track sequencing alternates logically and beautifully between mid-tempo stompers (“Infected”, “Komatsu”, “I Got Drive”) and slower doomy songs (“10-4”, “Love Screams Cruelty”, “A New Horizon”). Song arrangements are clever and captivating. Great melodies and memorable hooks that keep the listener engaged. The tones are thick and heavy yet capturing an astral airy vibe at the same time. In a genre that can seem over-saturated at times; KOMATSU offers the right amount of character, grit, musicianship, and song writing prowess to distinguish themselves from the pack. All killer and no filler. Crank this record to 11 and rock the fuck out.
