Cower - Land Before Time (2010)


"Cower is a metal band from Portland, Oregon. The orginal lineup comprised Logan Shattuck on drums, Jake Enger on bass, and Sean Archer on guitar. The current lineup comprises Logan Shattuck on drums, Jake Enger on bass, and Nick Vicario and Evan Franz on guitar."

The first thing I thought of when I first listened to Cower was "HOLY SHIT, IT'S LIKE I'M LISTENING TO LORDS OF LIGHT ALL OVER AGAIN!!"  It's as if Sleep was gang banged by Spazz and Gray Ghost and out came a fucked up offspring mutant baby named Cower. I don't know if a bunch of rag-tag autistics got together and said "Hey! Let's make music." or what?! The noteable stoner riffs are ever so present in this album it's unreal. It starts out very punkish and gets into into a very stoner-like trance with some psychedelic vibes flowing in the background and throwing in some random chord progressions similar to powerviolence bands just to fuck with your mind. My vocabulary isn't well rounded enough to tell you how bad ass Cower is so all I can really say is pick this album today! I strongly recommend it.
