Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

I enjoy a band who add variety to their music to create a unique style. Philadelphia-based Thunderbird Divine are not afraid to venture into other realms with the use of other instrumentation not usually found in rock in metal. Their use of the marxophone, electric sitar, piano and a variety of synths add a cultured texture to their upcoming release Magnasonic. The band members are Adam Scott (bass/guitar), Flynn Lawrence (guitar/other instrumentation), Mike Stuart (drums/percussion) and Erik Caplan (guitar/instrumentation).  Together they concoct a piece of majesty that is not overly technical and just raw enough to grind those brain gears. 

“Qualified” starts with an Eastern flair that gradually delves deep in the mode of 70s hard rock, flowing and caressing your endorphins. “Til Shiloh” is heavy, deep with guitars that have a low down dirty retro fuzz sound that buzzes with life. Add a touch of Beatles psychedelia and you have a beautiful composition. “Bummer Bridge” has fretwork and sound that is labyrinthine; crashing power chords, squally guitar and immense Sabbathy grooves. My choice pick is “The Devil's Hatband” and for some reason I am reminded of the reflective side of Type O Negative. I enjoyed the prog undertones and a bluesy aggression.

Thunderbird Divine is very different and I am all for different. They have the expected riffage and fuzz associated with the heavy stoner/doom/psych genre but go much deeper with talented craftsmanship and a raft of textures manifesting through each song. I look forward to their performance in the upcoming New England Stoner & Doom Fest.
