Admiral Sir Cloudesley
This feels like the kind of record you'd put on in a dimly lit, hazy basement, letting the sludgey, distorted grooves wash over you. It's good stuff, especialy during the rumbling, rolling bass lines of "Scratchin and Sniffin" and the punked-up metal thrashing of "The Last Run." Singer Johnny Gorilla's voice is overdriven throughout the album, pushing it deep into the mix alongside the instruments, which intensifies the careening path that the band rockets along, guitar, bass, drums and vocals all merging into one monstrous beast. Sure, the likes of Black Sabbath and Budgie have travelled this path before, but these guys walk the walk pretty damn well.
