CD REVIEW: COLOSSUS by Lo-Pan




COLOSSUS by Lo-Pan
(Small Stone Records) 

Columbus, Ohio's , Stone rockers Lo-Pan are back with their fourth and strongest release to date, 'Colossus'. Jeff Martin(vocals), Brian Fristoe( guitar), Skot Thompson (bass) and J.Bartz (drums). Holy mother of GOD this album R-O-C-K-S!!  If you like thick, deliberate, catchy riffs, a singer that actually "sings" (instead of grumbling), and an unmistakable Sabbath meets a heavier version of Soundgarden vibe, this is the album you've been looking for. The quartet go for the throat right from the start with "Regulus" and from there they unleash rock 'n' roll fury with, "Land Of The Blind",  "Black Top Revelation", "Marathon Man" and the powerhouse title track. Ten tracks in total, all promise to blow out speakers of all kinds! Thunderous low ends and pummeling drums continue to beat your ears into submission. And battling it out front and center is the eternal dual between killer riffs and go for the throat vocals. Lo-Pan'smusic feels organic, as if the songs were honed from epic jam sessions. More of this, please! Bottom line: I'm on my second listen as I write this, and I know that it's going to be listened to at least once a day for the next couple of weeks. To me, that's the sign of a great album. - Highly Recommended
