This hirsute Berlin trio pulls off their early '70s acid-blues groove with knowing deftness rare in stoner rock. Their second album opens with "Come Back Life," a melodic basher that finally acknowledges doom-metal's debt to Simon & Garfunkel calling darkness an old friend; another tune, built on hot pedal action, seems titled directly after proto-metal gods Dust. "Fire" turns downright lusty, and by the end things burst wide open, with Age Of Asparagus psych-zoom preceding the bongolicious jungle-rock closing track with breaks as disco-ready as any from metal dudes in decades.
