Two For Tuesday-Two Bands To Burn One(Two) To-Cosmic Android/Bull Dyke Rodeo

Todays "Two Band(s) To Burn One(Two) To" are Cosmic Android from Amsterdam and Bull Dyke Rodeo from Wisconsin.

Let's start with Cosmic Android. Cosmic Android is an Amsterdam based stoner-grunge-rock trio consisting of dutch rock'n'roll poet Tjø van Zuijlen on vocals and bass, guitarist Paul Geerts and Suzan Rooijers (Facehugger, Unabomber) on drums. Influences include bands such as Fu Manchu, Kyuss, the Melvins and Alice in Chains.

Next up is Bull Dyke Rodeo:

Scumbags. A blue sky. A jungle. Emerging from the Midwest, 80’s sci-fi movies, and obscene levels of volume, BULL DYKE RODEO have been penning doom rock hymns since the release of 2005’s tech-sludge The Murphy EP. A full length Robocop-themed album showed up two years later in the form of Jailbreak. Recorded at their own zlobStudios and featuring five tracks of hazy, pummeling time-signature grooves (“Bitches Leave,” “State of the Art Bang-Bang”), Sabbath-by-way-of-Kyuss structures and riffs (“Scumbags See the Judge on Monday Morning”), and stoner metal post-rock (“Directive 4,” “Love Theme From Delta City”), the instrumental Jailbreak made way for the band’s masterpiece: bull dyke rodeo II: dykefuge.

Also recorded at the illustrious zlobStudios, 2009’s bdrII found the band calling on yet another Paul Verhoeven film for inspiration—the monstrous Total Recall. In addition to calling on the power of Arnold, the band embraced their inner Thin Lizzy, letting the twin leads of Werner and Cody Sand to run amok and strike at will, on anything from the scorching, hook-laden “See You At the Party, Richter” to the sprawling doom epic “Sue Me, Dickhead.” Proving himself to be as versatile as he is solid, drummer Kurt Urbain goes from tender to terror in the gigantic closing track “Three Breasted Ballad” and even gets a little funky on the bouncing, catchy fuzz-anthem “Pyramid Mine.” Perhaps the track “Blue Sky On Mars” is a representation of the album itself: space, ADDoom thrash, and—above all else—density.

BULL DYKE RODEO are currently working on their third album, tentatively about the film Predator, and an EP of up-tempo boogie-metal about the movie Kingpin.
