Mississippi Bones' Vinyl Release of Songs for the Slackers, Rejects and Rabble-Rousers on Kozmik Artifactz
Snap. Crackle. Pop. That's what comes to mind when I listen to Mississippi Bones. While my purpose here is to discuss their latest vinyl offering, Songs for the Slackers, Rejects and Rabble-Rousers as well as the digital EP The Rejects Strike Back, the elite level of musicianship shines through on all their releases. Big guitars, heartbeat altering riffs, deep, rich vocals, gargantuan drums, and massive bass are wrapped and intertwined with the unrelenting and boisterous fun of each song's lyrics. It's a style that's heavily twinged with a southern flair, distantly influenced by the deep, low tones of Black Sabbath, and deeply infused with the fun and fury of Clutch. I don't even know if any of that is intentional because the sound is certainly unique to these Ohio rockers while simultaneously paying great homage to the very best of ageless metal regardless of country or time of origin.
Mississippi Bones have been quite prolific in the underground metal scene with their juiced and jaunty jams, having released no fewer than 4 albums in the six years since this decade began. They are now part of the those stoner straw dogs, Kozmik Artifactz, who have just distributed the vinyl of
Songs for the Slackers, Rejects and Rabble-Rousers this past June.
