Jonabar Hinge are a band from Switzerland that plays stoner rock and this is a review of their self titled 2015 album which was released by Division Records.
A very distorted guitar sound starts off the album along with some clean singing vocals a few seconds later that also takes the music into a heavier direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the riffs can also get very melodic at times along with a great amount of 90's influences.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are very distorted yet melodic sounding and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the vocals can get very aggressive at times and the music also brings in the heaviness of metal and elements of grunge can also be heard in the music at times and a couple of the tracks are long and epic in length and the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Jonbar Hinge plays a style of stoner rock that is very aggressive and energetic while still using a great amount of melody as well as mixing in the heaviness of extreme metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Jonbar Hinge are a very great sounding stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "You'll Be A Man" and "The Front". 8 out of 10.
