BONGZILLA: "Amerijuanican"                  

distributed in Switzerland by Irascible Distribution


review by Eric "E-Doom" ___   


 
"Amerijuanican"  Is A Very Intoxicating Album 

Started In The Mid 90's And Hailing From Madison, Wisconsin Bongzilla With Their Style Of Reefer-Induced Metal Have Released Their 6th Release "Amerijuanican" On Relapse Records.

    Bongzilla Reassurt Themselves As The Masters Of  Sludgy Down Tuned Stoner Metal. I  Think Its Safe To Say That These Guys Support The Legalization Of Marijuana. The Album Comes Across As  Having  Many Influences, The First Song "Amerijuanican" Reminds Me Of Old Sabbath...Heavy With Groove..This Style Is Heard Throughout The  Album. 

On Songs Like "Kash Under Glass" And "Tri-Pack  Master" It  Has Elements Of Abscess Style Structuring. "Cutdown", "Weedy  Woman" Continue On  With The Sabbath Style But With A Modern Grindcore Twist. 

The Song "Stonesphere" Is  A 12 Minute Instrumental Piece, And Then Theres A Very Cool Rendention Of The  Muddy Waters Cover "Champagne  & Beer" Ending The Album. 

 

Bongzilla

I Really Enjoyed The Way Mike Structured And Sung  The Vocals...Mike  Henry's Drum Sound Is Simply Amazing...His Style Is Alot  Like Chris Reifert (Autopsy).  

Guitarist/Vocalist Mike "Muleboy" Makela And Jeff Schultz' Guitar Work Is Simply 
ExcellEnt And Nate Dethlefsen Bass Tones Comes Through Just Enough. 

"Amerijuanican"  Is A Very Intoxicating Album  And Is  Sure To Leave You Jonesing For More
