CONVOCATION, THE / CHRISSAKES: Split: 12” EP

Jul 18, 2011

The Convocation: Big, loping, sludgy stoner rock sound mixed with an almost mid-’80s DC tinge to give it a bit more artsy heft than the average gaggle of nouveau hair farmers. Chrissakes: They riffin’ on the same influences as the cats on the other side, but their approach leans heavily towards the “hardcore” end of the sandbox. They still manage to throw in a Sabbath-type breakdown now and again, though.
