Electric Hoodoo are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of retro and stoner rock and this is a review of their self titled 2016 album was released as a joint effort between 4ONE8 Records and PRC Music.
Blues rock style vocals start off the album along with some melodic riffs that are done in more of a hard rock and proto metal direction and the music is very heavily rooted in the 70's while also having a more up to date take on the style and the solos and leads also remain true to more of a classic rock/metal direction.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and acoustic guitars can be heard in some of the songs and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the riffs also bring in a touch of early 70's doom metal and there is also a brief use of harmonica's and the whole album also sticks to a slow musical direction and the last track also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Electric Hoodoo goes back to the metal and blues rock styles of the 70's and updates it with a touch of modern stoner rock to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Electric Hoodoo are a very great sounding mixture of retro and stoner rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Phoenix" and "What's Going On". 8 out of 10.
