Gorilla is a U.K. based band that plays some great Stoner Rock with a Rock 'n' Roll vibe. Rock Our Souls is their third album and it is released by Go Down Records.
The songs on this album are very good. Some tracks remind me a bit of Orange Sunshine, especially the song Bludd Sucker. The vocals on this track sound very much like Guy Tavares.
Nevertheless does Gorilla have a sound of their own, dispite the several influences that are present. Rock Our Souls is an excellent album with a great kick-ass spirit. Enjoy!
Rock Our Souls contains heavy doom, high energy aggressive, progressive and regressive songs, played in a timeless heavy rock style that Gorilla have made their own. Influences are clear to see, Budgie, Blue Cheer, Grand Funk Railroad, MC5, but played with a rough 'street punk' Motorhead, Pink Fairies, Crushed Butler attitude and style, and an authentic 'vintage' feel and sound. Capturing the essence of a classic era of '60s and '70s rock without sounding cliched is a ridiculously fucking hard, if not impossible self imposed task. But with Rock Our Souls, Gorilla have achieved exactly that. A brand new gem that sounds like a lost classic.
