Pendejo

PENDEJO
STONER ROCK
HOLLAND

¡PENDEJO! is a four-piece heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots, El Pastuso and Jaap ‘Monchito’ Melman started blending heavy riffage, pounding drums, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish about the weirdest stories in life, and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.

"Do you like something different and special? So Pendejo will make you happy because this dudes are straight from Amsterdam and do a very mixed and interesting sound. I played with them in Schongau (Dutch & European Stoner Rock) and i have to say that this band is fucking awesome.
Frontman El Pastuso does a very good job, he is a great entertainer and makes a roofburning mood on stage. The spanish language caughts the certain extra for the band and makes it unique. Also his companjos do a great job and so the whole sound on the album and also on stage comes fat and mighty. "Atacames" brings you a handful of brilliant songs and the whole length of the record contains one hard riff after another. My favorite songs are: "Hermelinda" , "Dos" ,  "El Verano del  96" and "El Jardinero". For me the album is a masterpiece and doesn't need a warm up time. From the first second till now i'm simply delighted with it. Thumb up!"

"Funeral Doom with a lot of different instruments and melodies, sabbatic riffs the album becomes a good piece of music. "Blackfinger" comes like a mix of "Pothead", "Creed", "Black Sabbath" and a bit of "Type O Negative" i like it."

...good music from good people for good people...

RODEO DRIVE
STONER ROCK/HEAVY ROCK
GERMANY/BERLIN

I 'm going to tell you a story about a guy named "Hans" He always believed in music as a true music enthusiast and what he does has a soul and character.  After a yearlong acting with Samsara Blues Experiment, 2013 he started with "Rodeo Drive" as a new Project. Mixed and mastered by Richard Behrens also known from the sound of "Kadavar's" live sound and by "Heat" who did the bass.
 "Rodeo Drive" has a very simple but well rocking material on their disc which  proves us good songwriting skills. A true and not overproduced sound escorts every single song. You can't ignore the classic stoner rock attitude and with a lot of psychedelic parts and great solos it never becomes boring.. The vocals are very minimalistic and so the band conveys more like a  "jam atmosphere".
Also the bass sound works very well and so it's not a surprise that the band comes with some cool openers on several tracks. 
Song's like "The Void, Stoner of Mass Destruction, Poultry Bro, Earth Dark Diseases and "Snuff Eater" is great stuff for the Stonerheads out there.
All stuff of Rodeo Drive, Samsara Blues Experiment, Heat,Dunst etc you can order directly from Electric Magic or via bandcamp, follow the link below.

...in the garden of ivyl!!!


IVY GARDEN OF THE DESERT
DOOM/STONER/PSYCH
ITALY

Straight from Trevisio, Italy the power constilation of Andrea, Paolo and Diego release their third full lenght concept album named "I Ate Of The Plant And It Was Good" and it is directly conected to their forerunners "Docile" (2011) and "Love Is Blood" (2012). 
"They thought they were playing stoner, but people actually say they don't..." is their description quote on the genre line on facebook. That's right because it's not only simple Stoner Rock but high quality varied rock music with a interesting mix out of progressive rock parts, slower doom parts and driven portion hard rock and in the end there are also some stoner rock influences.

 I saw them at the Freak Valley Festival and i was really impressed by this nice guys from Italy. At the drive home from the festival i had the possibility to listen to their album accurate and had a lot of fun with this.
Song's like "Deeper Than Deep", "Ohcysprotom" and "Hang Glider" show the whole spectrum of their skills. Exactly this is what makes the band unique. They create their own sound and so they distinguish to all the other bands in this genre. I'm really happy about this discovery on the main stage at freak valley. The live show had a huge pressure and the progressive parts reminded me stromg on the band "TOOL", with a good feeling on stage and a great performance which they played and a  great set.  So they could impressed a lot of the people i think. 
You also have the honor to get your own copy of the Ivy Row. Check out their available records and merchandise on their sites.
