Stonerror – Widow in Black (2019) (New Full Album)

Stonerror – Widow in Black (New Full Album) Stonerror is a psychedelic stoner-punk foursome from Poland that have been jamming since 2015. They made a huge impact two years ago with their debut full-length ‘Stonerror’ (2017). If the first album was fire, let me warn you to buckle in for the fantastically frenetic follow-up! Not only does ‘Widow In Black’ (2019) sound fantastic, sonically, the new record is taking us on a thematic joy ride that is sure to warrant your invested listening for the long haul. Stonerror toggle between a wide range of interlocking styles with confidence, delivering exciting psychedelic touches, grinding desert riffs, soaring choruses, and dreamy post-metal finishes.

Without doubt, Widow In Black is one of the year’s most engaging, heart-thumping, hair flying wildly in the wind kind of records. Take for example, the humorously named “Kings of the Stone Age,” a genuine stoner-pop marvel, which musters the bouncy verve of QOTSA and the fuck-you punk intensity of Mutoid Man. “Revelation” brings us pop sensibilities reminiscent of Torche, while “Hellfire” shreds as hard as anything Radio Moscow or Earthless has brought to the fore. “Ships on Fire” channels the balls-out fury of ASG, accented by some of those big, bendy, Soundgarden-esque riffs. And I absolutely love those sweet, sweet hooks and licks in “Asteroid Fields.”

As with the first record, this Stonerror crew is lightning together. You’ve got Łukasz Mazur on lead vocals and guitar, with Jarosław Daniel shredding it up on guitar, Jacek Malczewski on bass (also pitching in on some nice vocal harmonies), and the steady hand of Maciej Ołownia on drums. It’s an unbeatable, finely tuned machine that feels neither uptight nor undisciplined. They’re just free, man, free. To draw a comparison with Kyuss: if Stonerror was the Wretch of the band’s discography, then Widow In Black is surely its Blues For The Red Sun. It’s a perfect companion to last year’s The Sea by Somali Yacht Club, not to mention a fine complement to ASG’s Survive Sunrise.
