Storm Meets Thunder...

Desert Storm / Suns of Thunder - Split 7" (2016)


H42 Records have long been in the habit of supplying solid 7" split records, and I'm happy to say that this latest one continues that trend of quality and heavy tunes.  On the A-side, we've got Desert Storm playing "Signals From Beyond", a groove-focused piece of desert rock (surprising, right?).  Husky vocals and pedal-treated guitar tone mesh with some thumping drums to get the job done, rolling along on the main riff's rhythm while throwing in a few twists, with a crunchy break-down or two lying in wait.
Over on the B-side, "Earn Your Stripes" is performed by Suns of Thunder, playing in a similar style, but with a little more alternative rock in their DNA, sort of a down-tuned Soundgarden or Audioslave, with clearer vocals and sharper string tones.  The 7" is available in a traffic light set (100 each on translucent green, yellow, or red, plus 50 on clear), with the official release date popping tomorrow (that's the 29th of April, just to be clear).  If you want some alt-ish hard rock with a stoner rock dip, be sure to check it out.
