Coming from Spain, The Sand Collector is a stoner band and this is their first album (which is actually a re-edition of their EP plus 4 new songs). The band was formed when Julian Velasco and Miguel A. Fernandez got together in a past formation of a doom/post metal band called Nahrayan. The band completed their form with the addition of Pepe Belda, Fernando Ferre and Tano Giménez.
Now,what to expect from these guys. Furious riffs and groovy bass that will satisfy every stoner rock fan,heavy rythm section,powerful drumming and vocals that fit perfectly in band's sound. Just to mention that some of their influences are Clutch,Spiritual Beggars and Sabbath's spirit.
In my opinion.they aren't in a way unique but their riffs are so infectious and they stuck in your head at once. It's a kick-ass release for sure.They're solid,they have thick sound and clear production that designate their best parts. So,why not to love them?
If you fancy their influences then you should check them out.
*Thanks to the guys from The Sand Collector for sending me their work.
