There is ‘retro rock’, a fun throwback to the heyday of guitar music, and
then there is ROCK. Can you spot the difference? Lonely Kamel from
Oslo, Norway don‘t give a damn about your vintage denim jacket and
bell-bottoms. “Death’s-Head Hawkmoth”, their fifth full-length record, is
a testament to the true spirit of heavy rock. Beginning with their first LP in 2008, Lonely
Kamel made a splash in the European
heavy rock scene owing to a tasteful balance
of blues and stoner rock with flourishes of
psychedelia. In the ten years that followed,
the caravan of Norwegian rockers left their
mark all over the continent, leaving 3 more
full-lengths and countless busted eardrums
in their paths.
Death’s-Head Hawkmoth shares much in
common with the band’s previous albums
-- for example, a predilection for the kind of
no-nonsense rock that is instantly recognizable
and satisfying. Yet Hawkmoth is a
darker trip: there is a menacing in between
the record grooves, perhaps reflecting our
current turbulent times.
The band has grown immensely since their
beginnings and their joy in playing and
crafting records shines vibrantly. Thomas
Brenna and Stian Helle’s massive guitar and bass riffs are offset by Espen Nesset’s
unpredictable and shifting drum beats, then
counterposed by fantastic solos peppered
throughout the album by band members
and guest musicians. The album’s seven
songs run the gamut from huge, stoned riff
fests to explosive, punk-tinged speed runs,
tied together by slow-burning and even epic
songs like the closer “The Day I’m Gone”.
The use of warped effects and sound clips
ingeniously enhance the psychedelic atmosphere
underlying the album - sometimes
sinister and sometimes hopeful.
The record was recorded and mixed in
Norway and mastered by Grammy-winning
engineer Brian Gardner. The result is an immense
rock record that is a joy to be bowled
over by.
