The "New Band To Burn One To" today is The Asound.
After an extended hiatus from music, former SEVEN FOOT SPLEEN & STONE OF ABEL members, Chad Wyrick and Jon Cox, along with ex-JAMES DEAN WEREWOLF drummer Michael Crump, formed THE ASOUND in early 2009. THE ASOUND pull from influences as diverse as 70’s hard rock, punk, psychedelia, prog and of course Black Sabbath, melding them into a style that is distinctly THE ASOUND.
Stomping the ground below with their massive riffs, North Carolina's The Asound set to conquer everything in their path. Their sound features super fuzzy guitars, driving rhythms and clean vocals. Each song has a distinct feel about it. "Joan" starts off with a roaring drum fill then feedback preludes to a slow thunderous rhythm. Second track "Snow White" is a straight up Stoner Rock jam, very reminescent of QOTSA, albeit very raw. The final track on the EP "Open Eyes" has a more psychedelic feel to it, with wailing solos and a driving tribal-like rythym. Overall, I am liking what I hear from these guys. Time will tell on their progression, so keep your ear out for this band.
