Satellite Beaver - The last bow

The Total Beaver Attack

Satellite Beaver is a stoner band from Warsaw, Poland (Szymon - vocals and guitar, Tomek - guitar, Robert - drums). They formed in 2008 and The Last Bow is their second release (2012).

4 songs and 18 minutes of total playing time provide you with thick fuzzy downtuned heaviness - with the rather speedy rock'n roll groove as well as with the slow gloomy sabbathian doom sounds. Rooted in the stoner grunge soil they branch out quite widely.

Satellite Beaver combine the different elements in a pretty distinct way, and with the outstanding and rather unusual vocals they come off with an individual style that is complex, yet always tight and massive. I understand The Last Bow to be a kind of summery of the "Beavers' " stylistic development with the last song Roadtrip being the outlook on the course the band's going to adopt, which would lead away from the grungy stoner roots into darker and heavier realms. Right on! I will keep an eye on these guys for sure...

For now I will crank up this way too short EP and enjoy the total beaver attack and getting crushed by this highly energetic nasty fuzzy heaviness.
