Diablo Strange – Sordid Tales


Diablo Strange – Sordid Tales
Self-Released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Hard
Rated: ***

Feast your ears on eleven tales of hard and fuzzy prestidigitation.  Your capable hosts for the next 40 minutes can trade punches with the stoner rock heavyweights all night long but are just as quick to weave an intoxicating spell in a top hat and penguin suit.  A gruff voice, fuzz bass and guitar that relies less heavily on effects than on strong riffs power these tales forward.  Meet Diablo Strange.  A magician?  No!  A stoner rock band hailing from Moncton, New Brunswick, a province on Canada’s choppy east coast.  The Maritime provinces were throwing stoner bands out to the far corners of the earth long before any of the rest of the country knew what the hell they were doing over there.  Diablo Strange does well to live up to that nobly stoned heritage.  So hop into the shaggin’ wagon and drive cross country, drawn to the heavy aroma and gravelly voiced siren call of the Maritimes, you now have the perfect soundtrack for the road trip!
