Luder are a band from Detroit, Michigan that plays a mixture of stoner, rock, shoegaze and psychedelic music and this is a review of their 2013 album "Adelphophagia" which was released by Small Stone.
"Never Liked You' begins with sound effects before adding in some 70's style melodic hard rock guitar riffs, bass and drums which lead up to some melodic vocals and clean sections and after awhile psychedelic rock guitar leads are added into the song along with some heavy guitar riffing.
"Astrolube" begins with some heavy bass riffing and drums which lead to some vocals and after a couple of minutes psychedelic sound effects make their way into the song and make it sound more powerful.
"One Eye" begins with dark guitar riffs which lead to up to some drums, bass and psychedelic keyboards and a few seconds later vocals make their way into the song and after awhile the music gets alot heavier along with a brief use of slide guitars and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads.
"Heartfelt" begins with some heavy guitar riffs which leads up to some bass and drums and a few seconds alter vocals make their presence known in the song and after a couple of minutes melodies are added into the music as well as some psychedelic sounding guitar leads a minute later and the song closes with some shoegaze elements.
"Ask The Sky" begins with some sound effects, bass guitars, melodic vocals and drum beats and a few seconds later heavy guitar riffs start kicking in and after awhile guitar solos and leads are added into the song.
'You Try It" begins with some bass and guitar riffs before the drums and vocals kick in along with some more distorted elements and a minute later guitar solos and leads start coming in and out of the song and towards the end distorted elements are added into the song.
"Dirge" begins with some sound effects and distorted elements before shoegaze style guitar riffs and vocals kick in and the music starts getting a little bit heavier and halfway through the song there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads being utilized as well as some shoegaze and psychedelic sound effects.
"I'm Afraid Of Americans" begins with some synths effects and drum beats before the guitar, bass and drums kick in along with some melodic guitar riffs and leads and then the vocals start making their presence known in the song and towards the end there is a brief use of guitar solos and leads.
"Remember What I Said" begins with some distorted sounds which leads up to some drums and melodic guitar and bass riffs and a few seconds later vocals are added into the song along with some guitar solos and leads.
Song lyrics cover everyday themes, while th e production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Luder are a very great sounding hybrid of stoner rock, metal, shoegaze, psychedelic and progressive rock and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band.
