El Buzzard
Tranquilizante Del Elefante (Electric Human Project)

By: Mike SOS

Halfway between noise metal and stoner rock lie El Buzzard, the crushing California quartet hell-bent on fusing The Melvins, Black Flag, and Black Sabbath into a six-song, almost 11 minute affair. And goddamn if these guys don't do an admirable job, as they deliberately cut the typical, drugged-out fat and cut right to meaty riffs like the one found on "I Got Shot", showing that sludge rock doesn't have to move like molasses to smack you upside the head. A quick, yet low-ended, jolt to the system, El Buzzard's messy brand of metallic space rock is perfect for a quick fix.
