When putting Italy and hefty stoner/doom metal together you'll probably think of Ufomammut, and rightfully so. But Wait! Here's something we found in the idyllic town of Vasto.
Le Scimmie started somewhere around 2007 and released a rather experimental offering of noisey riff worship back in 2011 with Dromomania. A good pounding of sludged and fuzzed out guitar work that didn't really have a direction, but it did what it had to do.
This year, the Italian three piece returns with Colostrum. This is definitely an album that should strengthen the band's position in the genre. Colostrum is huge and consistent, filled with gigantic riffs and atmosphere. It's loud, abrasive and walks like a mammoth. A recommended riff galore.

Our upcoming episode will feature a special guest and a good friend of ours who will contribute some of the most relevant riff-obeying bands of the 60's and 70's...
Charles Degeyter is a well-know and respected artist in the Belgian underground. He's the guy behind the artwork of the first Desertfest event in Antwerp, Belgium and did some really cool posters for YOB, Radio Moscow, Pentagram, Earthless, Colour Haze, Graveyard and Opeth. Find out more of his work here.
Charles is also an avid music fan who collects oddities and obscurities from the 60's and 70's. From proto-metal to early hard rock and underrated cornerstones of doom and stoner rock.
Join us with Charles, this coming Thursday at Villa Bota between 19:00 & 21:00 PM CET

Named after the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin is an instrumental space rock project from Gothenburg, Sweden that combines driving riffage with heavy psychedelic touches.
At The Center Of All Infinity is Gagarin's third and most complete release. Running a little over 40 minutes long, this thing is packed with atmosphere and vigorous stoner-space grooves. There is great musicianship to be found here, from the killer cosmic solo's to the downward thick 'n heavy lead guitars that create a solid backbone to a deeply engaging whole.
Anyone that loves heavy immersive space rock should get a hold of this album and discover it's lively surprises.
