Eating Cigarettes

Puny Human is a Stoner Rock band from New York. Revenge Is Easy is their debut album from 2001 released by Small Stone Records. Beside Stoner Rock there are some Metal influences in their music. Revenge Is Easy has all the ingredients for a great Stoner album: Filthy fuzz guitars, a driving drum and bass combination and an awesome singer. I just rediscovered this album recently and I've learned to value it again. Enjoy!

Tags like Heavy Metal or Stoner Rock don't do justice to New York City's Puny Human. Something like Giant Freaking Boulder Smacking You Between the Eyes and Crushing Your Skull Like an Eggshell Rock would better convey the absurd overkill and slamming power of these boys. Riff-laden, fuzz-busting tracks like Jesus Has My Leg, Way of the Intercepting Fist and Stink of Two Men (not to mention their cover of Aerosmith's Rock in a Hard Place) tell us these guys have spent quality time with their Sabbath, Blue Cheer, Fu Manchu, Kyuss and Tad albums. And their wailing wah-wah guitars, muscle-car boogie and cowbell-rock blast makes it clear they were paying attention. You'll do the same if you know what's good for you. Take it from us, Revenge is sweet.
