The Clamps- Blend, Shake, Swallow (Heavy Psych Sounds HPS047)
The Clamps are an Italian band from the north. This album features 10 tracks of high energy stoner rock band. Barraduda start things off with a short 2min instrumental. Liar keeps the place high and features a bit of piano here and there by Marco Carrara. The vocal is pretty rough and reminds me of a Swedish band Dozer, I think. The band reminds me of an Italian version of the Swedish Hellacopters at times. The record is mostly all high riffing energy rock and roll with the occasional guitar solo but not many. I found the album to be a bit too much the same and lacking in varation but they ROCK, no doubt about it and I am sure they are powerful live.
