Rock and Roll is here to stay !
Nostalgia is a hell of a drug, and Seedy Jeezus are bringing it into your audio file experience. The Aussie power trio releases their second album through a variety of heavy riffs, dosed in 70s fuzzadelic monster jams. That’s right, Polaris Oblique delivers pure rock and roll musically and lyrically. Guitarist/vocalist Lex “Mr. Frumpy” Waterreus, bassist Paul Crick and drummer Mark Sibson are throwbacks. Their style is a bit of — that was then, while effortlessly dipping into the now.
How is the sound?
Every song on Polaris Oblique is different then the rest. The first half of the album feels like a tribute to the heavy rock sound of today. Bluesy, rippin’ tunes which set the mood. “3 Million Light Years” is groovy as a mother! Progressive, tribal at times, even some elements of early style Van Halen. It definitely sets a tone for their guests who enter and play on the in-between meat and bone songs.
Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless, Golden Void) and Tony Reed (Mos Generator) join in to help blow away minds. The song “My Gods are Stone,” is a phenomenal piece. If you’re a fan of the aforementioned players, then get ready to jaw-drop and roll out your brain’s flaming fire. It’s an immense collaboration. It’s bold, and it’s a beast.
Now the album is in full speed ahead. “Oh Lord (Pt 1)” is the punch in the mouth. Monster Motorheadian rhythm. The pure visceral vibration blasting through your sound system, will destroy any candle light dinner date night, only to help mosh it’s way into your dancing feet.
Tony Reed adds lead guitar on “Oh Lord (Pt 2).” What an awesome song! ..And now we’re venturing into the realm of classic 70s rock!
So our ears enter. And a musical sound embodying reflections of David Gilmore’s debut solo studio album, bring forth the nostalgia drug. “Dripping From the Eye of The Sun” and “Treading Water” are beautiful, and have that passion nod. Lex’s voice floods the memory bank filled with that late 70s induced sound.
Seedy Jeezus rips. They bring it every song. Polaris Oblique has diversity that will make most fuzz-heads stoked somewhere on this album. Rock and roll is alive and well; and it’s got a pulse deep inside these bros!
