Andy K. Cool af heavy sludge rock that would make the guys in Down (and a few other quality bands) proud and probably say something like “fuck yeah, here’s a band who took their influences and not only paid homage but expanded on them”
FDJ thumbnail
FDJ Watches, army knives,chocolate and bank accounts are the things that come to mind when the word Swiss is mentioned, well you can add banging tunes and raucous riffs to that list now. Favorite track: Ugly Seductress.
Reek Of STOOM thumbnail
Reek Of STOOM Rat Axes? Ratajes? Rat Asses?? Who knows...but this is BANGING STONER ROCK....no doubt about THAT! Favorite track: Rhino Mantra.
