Remie : Stoner is a style I always had a weakness for and because of that given I was pleasantly surprised when I found ‘All Shades Of Colours, But Only Red I See’ of the Greek band Audiobreed in my mail. The album already was released in September 2013 but maybe of the past events in the Greek economy it caused some delay for the arrival in The Netherlands. Better too late than never of course.
The sound of the band could be described as stoner with a firm dash of hardcore and it is like as if Kyuss and Down had a little child. That is mainly because of the sound of singer Manos which is easy to compare of Down’s Phil Anselmo. The music contains nice grooving guitar riffs in which you find short bluesy intermezzos. Because of that the band seem try to imply some variation in their music but despite that I doubt if there is enough to find. The big disadvantage of stoner is that on cd it is lacking that live character. Besides that ‘All Shades Of Colours, But Only Red I See’ is a decent album for many fans of the genre.
