Quick Hit-Savanah-"Deep Shades"
A rather unique take on the Stoner/Doom genre is set forth by Austrian band Savanah. What sets the band apart from others is the lead singer's interesting vocal prowess. It is a deep and nasally bellow which sometimes suggests Maynard (Tool) and then digs into somewhere between Glenn Danzig (Danzig, Misfits) and David Gahan (Depeche Mode), yep I did say interesting. The musicianship is tight as hell and the riffing is phenomenal. The bass guitar barrels through your chest like an eighteen wheeler and is steadied by a unwavering rhythm. The songs build and become quite hypnotic in the sense that you are being drawn into the music that engulfs you. Favorite track: Deep Shades.
