Devillac - Three Hours To Coma
Devillac are a fresh band who've taken some time in putting together a solid line-up and respectable songs for their debut full-length, Three Hours To Coma. The history of the band dates back to 2000 and beyond, as most of the members have played together in smaller bands in the past.
What Devillac plays is a growly, groovy sort of stoner rock that borderlines on metal at times. It's tinged with bong resin and it has that odd scent you used to pick up from your parent's room when you could see smoke drifting from under the door. It makes no qualms about blugeoning you over the head with big beefy riffs, thundering drums and grooves that will keep you entertained. "Man without a Spine" and "Kamikaze" really stand out.
My first thoughts on hearing Devillac were that they do a good Kyuss impersonation, but there is more to the band than stoner-rock-worship. They've got a pretty firm grasp on their own sound I'd say, and with just a touch more variation they'd be able to stand out from the pack. For now, I'm putting Three Hours To Coma in my "Bands to watch for" pile, and I'll be coming back to the album again I'm sure. It's not what you'd call ground-breaking at all, but it is right up every stoner rock fan's alley.
