T.H.U.M.B – Primordial Echoes For Modern Bigfoots

T.H.U.M.B – Primordial Echoes For Modern Bigfoots
Go Down Records – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Sludge, Punk
Rated: ****

The Italian trio T.H.U.M.B graced our ears with their 2003 Overloaded Rock ’N’ Roll EP and the 2004 follow up Lunar Flight. Nine heavy eclectic songs that varied not only in style but also in quality. With their first full-sized album Primordial Echoes For Modern Bigfoots they celebrate their tenth year anniversary and keep the variations in music they bombarded us with eight years ago but improve every bit of their ability and storm the gates to claim their rightful place on the stage of heaviness. They show their aptitude in writing, composition and above all daring to not change a winning riff or chug. Sometimes we hear lumbering beasts and animals dragging themselves to their death only to be treated to some folk picnic or a space age soar towards distant planets. Which in turn are molested and destroyed by wrecking ball riffs and tattooed fists. Blazing, almost tornado like drums and hurricane bass. After searching for the right words to really describe this giant I reckon we should go with apocalyptically good. This is what happens when you push the right buttons!
