Tales From Bandcamp: Obelisk by Goya

a4167963514_10A handful of years back Goya’s album 777 kicked my fuzzy stoner metal loving ass all over the place.  Hazy vocals, dissonant guitars, laid back drums, and crunchy grooves man.  So you’d be correct if you said I was looking forward to checking out Goya’s follow-up.  And here we are with Obelisk and Goya knocks it out of the park again.

This time we get a band that has taken a genre that can very quickly get stale and boring and livened it up with just enough bong rips to entertain us who no longer habitually partake in the inhalation of the sacred herb but still like the dank smell (and the occasional J).  Tighter and more varied songwriting hypnotize and captivate and big tripped-out, bluesy guitar solos and punchy drums add a beautiful contrast to the lazy drone of the riffs.  This is one hell of a trip into a well-crafted, surreal soundscape and shouldn’t be overlooked by any fan of the stoner rock/metal genre.

You know the drill, give the record a listen, dig in your couch for spare change, give the band money, tell your friends how much Goya kicks ass, drop us a comment or something, go about your busy day.  Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
