Indian Stoner Rock outfit BLEACHEAD just released their third single titled ‘Fuzzpacker’. The band has found new roots in a heavier, more desert/stoner inspired fuzzy sound since the release of their first album “Z” in 2018.
The song features a slow, almost melancholic, intro with clean guitars, melodic vocals, and a simple yet solid beat. It then devolves into a fuzzy explosion brought on by solid single fuzz bass hits that are compounded by explosive drums and finally some soaring vocals and sick riffs. The energy of the song builds and escalates with each section until it finally reaches metal territories where the gritty vocals turn to growls and the music turns into heavy stoner metal explosiveness.
The band interplays stoner metal/rock sounds with some nostalgic and old school elements. You can hear inspirations from many of the old great ones yet the sound is still fresh and their own.
