Miss Lava are a band from Portugal that plays a very heavy form of stoner rock and this is a review of their 2016 album "Sonic Debris" which will be released in May by Small Stone Recordings.
Clean playing starts off the album and after a few seconds drum beats are added onto the recording which also leads up to a heavier musical direction and once the melodic vocals kick in it starts giving the music a stoner vibe and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A lot of 90's influences can be heard in the bands musical style along with a touch of doom metal while the music still sounds very modern and psychedelic sounds can also be heard at times and on some tracks a small amount of spoken word parts can be heard and when the music speeds up the energy of grunge and punk rock can be heard and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can be heard in certain sections of the recording and when solos and leads are utilized they remain true to a stoner rock style.
Miss Lava plays a style of stoner rock that can be psychedelic at times while also being more influenced by 90's rock than 70's rock while also mixing in the heaviness of doom metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, real life and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion Miss Lava are a very great sounding stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Another Beast Is Born" "In A Sonic We Shall Burn" "Fangs Of Venom" and "Planet Darkness". 8 out of 10.
