DALI’S LLAMA: Dying in the Sun: CD

It’s a funny thing when you do reviews for a while and get multiple albums from the same band. This is at least the third album I have reviewed from this desert riff rock band and they continue to crank out fantastic heavy music. They don’t try to be “scary” or to be “tough,” they just blast out cool, heavy riffs with excellent vocals. The song “Claustrophobic Blues” has one of the best riffs I have heard in years and vocals that bring to mind David Thomas on the more recent Rocket From The Tombs stuff. Anyone who is even a casual fan of Kyuss, Desert Sessions, Fu Manchu, or Monster Magnet will absolutely love this band. –Mike Frame (Dali’s Llama, dalisllamarecords.com)
