Harry Harrison I first came across SGT Thunderhoof on their spilt with Howling Giant. The quality of their track compelled me to search for more. And were better to start than the beginning. There are only 5 songs on this album, but, as you’ll discover when you start listening, the SGT love his long tunes that eb & flow with walls of sound punctuated with meandering interludes. This album just gets better the further you get through it. The other reviews are right. Not their best but still really good. Favorite track: After Burner.

Devil Whore 07:54
Let the shattering excite your little mind When you suck it up you must commit to a holy life Is it so wrong to comply if it fills your pockets so? Slips and cracks in your filthy mind, shady corners fall This wealth that you sit upon, is a devil bitches hands And she’s pulling you across the floor, say hello to your devil whore She’s a devil, she's evil, she's a devil And you are gonna die Tempts your pride….so you’re gonna die Your sins don’t lie….so you’re gonna die You won’t see the end until it smacks you in the face This is what you bought Shaking with your product, weighing on your soul This is what you bought You’ve got your balls to the wall, your head under the soil Weighing on your soul Balls to the wall, pockets full of gold Weighing on your soul
2.
The air, the sky, the heavens. A beautiful lie. How were we to know? Deceived and disappointed. By the lights you choose to show, is that all? Through the fog we have confused. This thought we once amused. They’ll keep on blocking your thoughts…. Of love Pity for the son, cleaved from the beating heart Covered in human blood of your God In a world of death and gold, we were sitting pretty I’m happy to be what you want…..a dog A truth can split the light, God it tastes so fine As it snakes it’s way down your throat Pity for the son, cleaved from the beating heart Covered in human blood of your God Wash away the stain, make us clean again Shimmering with love, pray we last another day
3.
Lungs strained with the panic of a thousand suns Time enough to wish you well On distant lands we’ll breathe again If I told you this was illusion And the truth you seek is lies Would you move on by? From the reflection in your eyes? Oh yeah! We’ll rise up! Oh yeah! And watch you fall Tracing all the footsteps of a thousand suns The path of the righteous buried below Thoughts crushed by the prison within you Tell me that you’re sick of repeating What the moral majority say It’s time to move the other way It’s time to move the other way! Oh yeah! We’ll rise up! Oh yeah! And watch you fall You’ve got nothing to offer Nothing but lies Om Asato Ma Sadgamaya
4.
Betrayed by thoughts and time Ravaged by the wind and rain Your perception will slowly dissolve Happy was the word that we heard from time to time Dancing with the shadows above They said the light is the way But they came from the sky! The soldiers have returned baring burdens for us all Upon their heads our hearts can bleed And yet we ask for more Beat them to the floor Because it's all that matters to me They said the light is the way But they came from the sky! Such greed and selfish pride, dipping into others lives Your ego knows no human bounds As transparent as your birth is your hatred for love We all deserve a blessed life They said the light is the way But they came from the sky! This life is all we know, the water burns us all No more I. Only love Let the bird take flight for us all
5.
After Burner 08:31
In mushroom coloured halls, salted sheets of flesh Forever lost in a haze of wishful thought They came with their light many years ago And we kept setting fires to memories of old Inside we’re burning to fight a war, why? This silent turning, you’ve been sold a lie We could never believe, never accept the surreal Bitter sweet the taste of what we see and feel But can’t you see? It’s you and me Inside we’re burning to fight a war, why? This silent turning, you’ve been sold a lie Sons and daughters of your blood, why? It’s never ending, forever burning, why?

about

The classic debut record, originally released in 2014 and went on to become a sleeper cult classic. Finally receiving a re-release on vinyl and Cd!

A psychedelic riff laden monster that blends Doom, Stoner Rock Hard Rock and Groove Rock. This album is dripping with class. Brilliant and highly recommended.

This is an unbelievably excellent debut release. One that you will never tire of.

It's just too bad that not a whole lot of people know of this band, because I think that they have the potential to do great things. If the rest of Sergeant Thunderhoof's releases are even better than this, then they will be instant hits.

________________________________________

Overall the EP is well structured and effectively demonstrates the bands diverse influences borrowing as much from thrash, post-metal and space rock as they do from traditional doom and desert rock. Even greater things are bound to follow – keep your eye on these guys.

________________________________________

A killer 5 track EP, stretching over 40 psychedelic doom drenched minutes.
www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Sergeant-Thunderhoof/58665/
________________________________________

A holy pyramid filled with crackling gritty riffs that move through the world of doom and stoner with a lot of psychedelic meandering. They transport you to a higher state of doom where mind altering and kaleidoscopic drums bash, pound, rattle or tick their love for the space rock that the Sergeant creates into your brain and turns it into the labyrinth out of which the creature once escaped. Like the rumbling bass in for instance ‘After Burner’ it ran so many years ago like an animal in rut through all the walls it once contained. And then there are the howling and haunting and unholy vocals that hypnotize and enchant as the freedom did for Sergeant Thunderhoof. So… Stand in attention and salute this mighty beast!
