AVER. Here's the challenge, listen to a couple tracks and try and decide what genre they are, even they don't know. Some sort of bastard child of Stoner Rock, Psychedelic, Space Rock and Grunge. In any case it's heavy and it's groovy and it doesn't sound like any other band out there. If those sound like good things to you, they reckon you'll dig them. Enjoy sober, or otherwise. Luke: Lunar Fiddle
Jed: Earth Tremors
Chris: Tribal Rhythms
