Albino Python - The Doomed & The Damned (2012)
Anyway, this is where I see Arizona's own Albino Python. Now, at this point I'd love to give you more info on the band, but details seem to be few and far between. By which I mean there's very little info on their Facebook page. What I can tell you is that they're female fronted, something that admittedly surprised me after having listened to their EP a good ten times or so. The vocals have that certain quality that makes them somewhat asexual for want of a better word. But now I know, I really can hear it. But who does what doesn't really matter, what matters is how EP performs, and that is exactly what it does. Gigantic fuzzy Sabbath inspired riffs and a slow crushing authority from the drums really do lay waste right from the opening bars. Whats true impressive though is its ability to maintain simplicity without becoming stupid, and retain a truly heavy feel without merging into over powering. It's such a kickass little EP, and I'm glad to report that it's finally been given the physical format it deserves! Our man Dan over at Easy Rider Records has gone to town and really helped the band out there. He's not only produced 100 cassettes of various limited availabilities, but thrown together some badges and some really, really nice shirts. These little beauties go up for sale midday (GMT) or early tomorrow morning (PST). Like all of Easy Rider's stuff they've been lovingly produced and look the mutts nutts, they wont be around for long so dont bloody snooze!
