AUDIO: Shogun – “Tetra”
Stoner rockers Shogun released a new album this week. Psychedelic and fantastical, the band brings enough riffage here to stop a demonic galleon trekking across the stormy sky. They move mountains with the epic “Delta,” enter a ruminative trance with the somber “Gone Forever,” and cry victoriously with the prevailing “Maximum Ray.” The guitar solos annihilate all in their path while beasts get summoned with the howling vocals. It’s a powerful and dooming release from Shogun; we hope to see them on the scene soon.
