Today's New Band To Burn One To is Gypsy Chief Golith
I found these guys while browsing through The Obelisk's forums. I couldn't keep this to myself, I had to share. They're heavy as fuck. Fans of Sixty Watt Shamen and Might Nimbus take note, this is right up your alley.
Born from the ashes of their old bands, these musicians helped pave ways in the Canadian stoner rock scene. Now serious about making no bullshit music the members: AL the Yeti Bones (Georgian Skull, The Mighty Nimbus, Mister Bones), John (KEEF), Chris (Salem Saints), Dave (Blood Runs Cold) , Adam (Georgian Skull), and Brodie all have decided to form a pure rock and roll band that dances on the edge of their stoner rock roots as well. When Gypsy Chief Goliath officially became a band, the vibe was electric. This band is going to kick your ass! More to come...Currently they have a demo to download and they have one video (which can be viewed below) but it's enough to fill a small void and like crack, makes you want more.
Consisting of members: AL The YETI BONES (of Doom/Stoner icons: The Mighty Nimbus, Georgian Skull, Mister Bones), Dave Ljubanovich (Blood Runs Cold), Chris Coleiro (Salem Saints), John Kendrick (Keef), Adam Saitti (Georgian Skull), and Brodie Stevenson. This band is a hard hitting, 6 piece outfit that plays original blues on steroids. Thus giving the listener a piece of history combined with the power of today. Gypsy Chief was formed last year, by the men in the Canadian music scene that had had enough witnessing for one day, how music has really changed and Canada's music scene has gone "south" in more ways then one. The previous bands together have an astronomical amount of accomplishments and success that has helped them pave their way in this business. The Yeti Bones has been on labels: Candlelight Records U.S.A (Philadelphia), Threeman Recordings (Sweden), Scarlet Records (Italy), Obskure Sombre Records (Montreal, Canada), R&R Express (Russia), and Dental Records (Sweden). While Keef's debut record was just released on Pychedoomelic Records this year. Earlier last year, Salem Saints traveled to Chicago ( with Al Bones sharing guitar duties with Chris Coleiro) to record their debut record at Electrical Audio with legendary Engineer, Steve Albini. When that record was never released, Chris and AL jumped ship and got together with Dave from Blood Runs Cold and start what we know now as, GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH. this band is one of the best secrets in Canada, but will take literally no time to get the name out there, as all their previous bands have a wide fanbase, and the group today, is on point like never before. The new debut record and DVD documentary will be released later this year. !!!
