Birch Hill Dam have recently posted an update on their new album sessions via the band’s facebook page. According to the band, heavy music fans can rejoice as the band has 5-6 songs done and the album is expected to be released in 2014. In the spirit of giving, the band has also posted their critically-acclaimed album “Colossus” for free on bandcamp.
The band hails from Gardner, MA and was formed in 2007. The band has played heavy stoner metal ever since and “Colossus” shows the band at the top of their game. The title track crushes with an epic build up and frenetic riffage. With a groovy bass solo to boot, can anything be said negatively about the track? The album doesn’t stop killing either as each track stomps through without letting up. The album has received praise from various outlets such as The Soda Shop and Heavy Planet for it’s stellar production and for the band’s ability to throw in a little southern rock into their in-your-face stoner metal attack. One thing’s for sure, if the band sounds this good now, I can’t wait for what the next album holds.
