Album Review by Allyson Kingsley Music Journalist with Boston Rock Radio

 

Oh my, this is the good shit right here.  Not usually a huge fan of stoner rock, Wasted Theory have won me over on their latest release Defenders of the Riff which was recently signed by Argonauta Records.  The band originates from the Maryland/Delaware area and the musicians are Larry Jackson, Jr. (vocals/guitar), Brendan Burns (drums), Andrew Petkovic (rhythm guitar) and Rob Michael (bass). This is definitely a party album, pure fun and simply rock n roll. The lyrics are easily heard and listenable which is a bit of a break from all the death and black metal I've been soaking in. This is the kind of music you want to blast while enjoying choice beverages or herbs on a hot summer night by the firepit. Lots of blues influence can be heard throughout the tracks on this album.

 

I will start by commending the Rob’s bass riffs on this production, massively heavy but not in a way that becomes aggravating. Check out Larry's gritty gravelly vocal work that immediately catches your ears from the opening track “Get Loud or Get Fucked.” The song “Black Witch Blues” with its dirty rockin’ fretwork immediately reminded me of Motorhead, and for me to credit a band with that compliment...they deserve to sit at Lemmy’s table. The opening riffs and drumming on “Atomic Bikiniwax" are potent and perfectly rhythmical. On “Amplifire!” I was transported to the time I fell in love with Soundgarden’s “Outshined.” Never too much and somehow you just can't get enough.

 

Check these guys out on tour via the Stoned on Both Coasts 2018 tour.
