JOLLYMON ~ Voidwalker (2018)



Jollymon ~ Voidwalker


What the band says :" Pacific Northwest-based stoner-metal outfit Jollymon is set to self-release their fifth full-length, Void Walker, their first in eighteen years, on June 8, 2018.
Jollymon - comprised of frontman/principal songwriter Carey Rich (vocals, bass), Mark Blackburn (drums), and John Colgate (guitar, vocals) - originally formed in Eugene, Oregon, releasing their debut full-length, Sailing, in 1995 on Eugene's Elemental Records.  They followed up Sailing with 1997's Nobody Knows Who You Are and 1998's Stoned Nation Radio, both on Elemental Records.  Then, in 2000 they released their fourth full-length, the self-titled album, on Battle Arena Records, before imploding shortly thereafter, walking away, with no plans to return.

That is until Rich, Blackburn, and Colgate began to talk, jam, and work on a batch of songs Rich had penned.  The result is Void Walker, their triumphant return: a record that is more stoner-rock, less on the sludgy side, and leaning more towards metal than its grunge/hard-rock predecessors. 
"Whereas the previous four records were more grungy rock songs, the material on Void Walker is more on the metal side.  But, we managed to keep the space-rock element, and even turned it up," comments Rich on the band's shift of direction with Void Walker.  "We see us going even more metal and more space-rock in the future."

Another thing Rich notices about Void Walker compared to the band's previous releases is that the album is, "clearer and better produced."
He continues, "we've come full circle with our recording approach.  The first and second albums had great studio gear with Grammy-nominated producer Drew Canulette running the show.  However, the third was a lesser studio done on more of a budget.  And, the fourth album, our self-titled one, was a home studio recording.  Sure, it sounds good, but you can definitely hear the quality difference between it and Void Walker - or even our first two records, for that matter."


Its hard to believe that Voidwalker is Jollymon's first release in 18 years because this fantastic album portrays a band honed to perfection and on the very top of its game. There is no rustiness here, the whole album flows over polished and crystalline melody, its rhythm cradled in the wake of the funkiest of bass lines cascading into an explosion of so many genres, guitar licks taking you right into the blast wave, peppered with shrapnel.

Voidwalker expresses itself in so many ways. It will caress you, chastise you, whisper sweet nothings in your ear while raking broken, jagged fingernails down your back, this is one of those rare albums that changes emotion with each track. 

With a grunge ancestry from earlier recordings, Jollymon has stoner rock in its DNA, but above all the only tag I could give this band is metal through and through, metal with soul.

I can only hope we don't have to wait another  18 years for the next one

SALTBUCK - Cityslicker (2018)



Saltbuck ~ Cityslicker

Morphing from the band Sunstone, Saltbuck has been reborn from that particular stoner/doom cocoon, under a darkened, broody sky, as a seven headed, bloated, crushing machine, coated in a mucus of sludge.

You know its going to be a suffocating ride from the first track 'Underture' which sounds as though there is someone undergoing waterboarding torture amid a droning doom backdrop that explodes at the halfway mark with a pounding assault of heaving riffery. 

There's an ocean of hurt all the way through Cityslicker, aided and abetted by a full on production that cranks the intensity up to trauma inducing levels. That said, Cityslicker does have its seductive moments, with the odd jangly guitar interlude and sensuous groove, but ends up swinging that sledgehammer down to obliterate the brainpan.

As the man in the background of 'Underture says..."You're mine.......don't fight it!"
