Harry Harrison SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Favorite track: Enter The Zigurat.

What use is your God? The time of your Lord is no more a part of you. Stand close to the fire, cross over your soul in a void of bloody war. Yeah! This is a low. A beast inside your mind. Waiting for, the devil sign. Asleep in your thoughts, contemplating a life carved in stone. Your body calls. Love can answer the song. Raping your addiction to the sword, when your heart grows old. Yeah! This is a low. A beast inside your mind. Waiting for, the devil sign. The lightning strikes, above the hills A fleeting call, when time stood still The alien craft prepares for war The distant planets will eat you all

Planet Hoof 06:28
Far away, their light began to fade A place before, the nightmare of blood Of the Nine that remained, Hoof was his name With Thunder he soared, on Lunar he roared The sound was made, glory became In brimstone he told his people the code Your children, I am the story Lead them to the door Let them see the beauty of a world without a wall Break the shield inside yourself This heaven you ignore Embrace the blinding truth of love, right down to your core She thought of everything Ages of ecstacy Legions of love to feel Lord set them free from fear

Waves carved into my brain Sounds of a fallen angel Face, is a thing of magic Woman! Take me to your leader Rage for the son of man I crave because it's all illusion Hands will deceive my body Pain for pleasure She's a hell of a woman She's got snakes for thighs She's coming to get you, NO! Reptilian woman, don't look in her eyes She wants me inside her, NO! This fear is a mortal coil Crawl from her cave of wonder Fever will control your brain With lust you can't hide She's a hell of a woman She's got snakes for thighs She's coming to get you, NO! Reptilian woman, she's got breasts of size She wants me inside her, NO! Falling through the sky in your chains This woman's got me high, she's a tease The devil looks like gold, God I pray Lord please let me go, i'm on my knees Oh no! All the world's slipping by, it's fear Oh no! It's the pain of letting go, it's fear! I am mystified by your grace I am terrified by your sweet gold face Oh no! All the world's slipping by, it's fear Oh no! It's the pain of letting go, it's fear!

Son we will send you away To a land far from time and space Gone is the time for regret Place your faith into the zigurat But please walk on back to me Lift his soul for all to see Out there we can fly 2000 years in the heavens Swim through tides of pure energy Bring us back the cure for misery Won’t you please walk on back to me Lift his soul for all to see….believe! see! Mother, I’ve arrived in this garden of life And I’ve paid for with my life. Keeping secrets inside. I miss you in my heart. A thousand life times apart. I will lead them from the dark. I’ll avenge you before I part.

Satan was born to the world in a dream of a boy and a girl Feasting the fears of the sun, deep in the mire and the scum, yeah! Drink to the horror of war, do we believe that we’ve heard it before? Forget the illusion of chance, visions repeated by light, yeah! There’s a devil hiding in your filthy head, you must defeat this hate before you wake up dead. Absorb the sound of endless love and drive the pain away. I got no time for playing all your silly games. Stupidity of thought tearing at your heart. It’s grinding you down, the child that you are These knives stuck in your heart It feels like you’re falling apart Bring it back into the dark Exposing your soul, your teachings forsaken for blood No human is able to say……this is the end It feels like you’re falling apart These knives stuck in your heart It feels like you’re falling apart These knives stuck in your heart Satan was born to the world in a dream of a boy and a girl Feasting the fears of the sun, deep in the mire and the scum, yeah!

Staring out to your world I’ve tried so long to carry this hurt The flame of god has touched your body Cities of gold were cast from my heart I give you one more day With love I set you free I feel your heart in mine To forgive is divine You came for greed and took what you could see A thousand years buried in the deep. You wear the pain upon your body. The staff of souls, I will right the wrongs. One more day With love I set you free I feel your heart in mine To forgive is divine

about

This album is a huge improvement from the already-awesome “Zigurat“, so it looks like they will only get better from here. Sergeant Thunderhoof has definitely put in the time and has the talent to be the next big thing in Stoner Rock, so be sure to check them out, because you will hear this name again.

This is the second album from this band, being their follow up to 2014’s Zigurat and it is a monolithic testament that successfully sets the guys apart from much of the rehashings currently taking place in this genre. I believe this is one of 2015’s best releases,

________________________________________

Throughout this album there is a great tightness to the musicianship and no matter which avenue they choose to explore next, the band keep up with each other in perfect symbiosis. Reminiscent of Iron Maiden at their peak, Sergeant Thunderhoof are more than willing to introduce more progressive concepts into their music to keep things interesting. Old fashioned it may well be, but it certainly makes for a fun ride. It’s often difficult to stand out from the crowd with music like this and with standards being so high at the moment you really have to tip your hat to Sergeant Thunderhoof who leave you begging for more. If the sign of a good album is its ability to make you return for repeated listens then Ride Of The Hoof is definitely going to be a mainstay on your record player. Faultless in delivery, it may be let down by moments of small naivety, but on the whole it’s a quite fantastic release. Highly recommended, you may find yourself hooked and wanting to come back for more.

Ride Of The Hoof is superbly produced. It’s perhaps one of the best produced albums I’ve heard this year from the UK Stoner Rock/Metal scene. It sounds amazing from the start. My final thoughts of the album is that's a creative, intelligent, often humorous album that’s packed full of wonder and adventure. Sergeant Thunderhoof have excelled themselves here. Excellent and Highly Recommended.

Ride of the Hoof may be caught up in a sweeping new wave of British doom that’s seen the likes of Alunah, Greenhorn and Undersmile rise to the crest, but with songwriting like this so early into their trajectory, it won’t be long before Sergeant Thunderhoof can be counted among these ranks. Ride on through the streets of Bath!

There's a huge amount to enjoy here over the course of the albums 50 minutes; Dan's vocals complimenting the crunching riffs from Mark Sayer, and then theres the Psychrock grooves. Ride of the Hoof is highly recommended.

Got your order of beer and pretzels metal, right here. This is exactly the sort of riff-pounding, bong-rocking metal you need blasting at any party. You honestly won’t care that it’s not the deepest of records; when you have a case of beers to get through, you don’t exactly want a case of the feels. It’s pretty well impossible to hate an album when its biggest fault is that it’s not a thought-provoking chin-scratcher.
