Nice follow up to their 2009 EP Stardust. This instrumental stoner metal band from Russia pores out 7 super cool tracks with a heavy dose of guitar shredding riffs, and spacey vibes. For me its a perfect mix. ♥ (Although, this time they added some vocals on one track. I kind of like the all instrumental tracks a little better, but the vocals are still good, its just a personal preference) \m/
Favorite track: 54.

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. Harry Harrison
