Here is yet another great release by Go Down Records. This time it is the album Reborn by the band Muzzled from Treviso, Italy. This foursome plays some damn fine Psychedelic Stoner Rock. Muzzled is according to their Facebook page influenced by the following bands: Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Kyuss, Dozer, Ojm.. The Sade, The Hellacopters, Brant Bjork, Grand Funk Railroad and The Stooges.
A name that I miss in this list is Pink Floyd, because the first track of Reborn is a song called Barrett. This is a variation of the great Pink Floyd song Interstellar Overdrive.
What follows after this song are several strong compositions. Muzzled knows how to write some great Stoner songs. The musicians play very well and the singer is blessed with his impressive throat. The last track of this album is a nice version of The Rolling Stones song Gimme Shelter. Enjoy!
Everything started from the hot and sultry summer 2007... After the MADDOGS (a led zeppelin tribute band) broke up, Mattia and Daniele (guitar and voice) started thinking about a new project. After few months Stefano (bass) and Fabio (drums) took part in the band. The band is then complete. The band's musical choice is beginning to compose immediately own tracks, moving to harder and rougher sonorities. A stoner rock with powerful riffs, influences from the 70's, and psychedelic touches is the result.
In just over a year of live performances, MUZZLED are now on the stages of the most renowned rock clubs in the region of Veneto (New Age Club, Vinyl, Shindy Club, Smithy Controvento) and they are given the opportunity to represent the independent music of their region (veneto) at MEI (Meeting of the Independents) in Faenza (Emilia-Romagna).
