From Brisbane, Australia comes the five-song début of the band FUMAROLE, their new ‘Mountain‘ EP.
If you’re seeking something that channels vibes of the heavy rock past and gives it a modern spin with hard-hitting guitars and punk rock energy, then this is for you. The trio – Kurt Werder (guitar, vocals), Ryan Stewart (drums), and Dan Bartsch (bass) – have tapped into a source that supplies them with ultra infectious rock and roll.
From the blues-infused grooves of “Timelord“, or the sweat soaked jam-fueled tunes “Feeding Hand” and “Field“, this is fiercely fantastic music. Speaking of ferocity, the EP-ending instrumental “Inside The Diving Bell” is an absolutely scorching flamethrower of instrument driven incineration.
