Hashdealer With a crusted sound that blends billowing rock, clenched-teeth blues and an underground punk attitude, psychedelic sludgecore masters Bongzilla fire up thunderous mega-rock with a pronounced emphasis on the big riff. Now I'm used to the vocals as well.

The album is encompassed in THC-infused riffs, growled vocals, more references to marijuana than an issue of High Times magazine, and heaviness only matched by "Dopethrone". First, this album is filled with massive riffs, each one with considerable crunch. A few of the best are "66ib. What a name for a band. I stumbled upon these fellas pretty much due to a random recommendation on the internet. Judging from the title of their albums, this band seems to be chronically obsessed with the whole stoner thing and sweet Mary J. I've not heard anything else from Bongzilla, but could imagine that they've had a pretty consistent career, for good and for worse.

Mean 'n' green bludgeon rock, '70s style, is the name of the game with Gateway, Bongzilla's second full-length, which doesn't even try to separate itself from the overused stoner rock tag. Regardless, Gateway proves that there's plenty of hemp-fueled joy in sludgeville, derivative as it may be, sounding like a cross between Sleep's drowsy, Black Sabbathy meanderings and Electric Wizard/Burning Witch-style gut-curdling, muddy sludge.
