Convert to the Gospel of the Riff, believe “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” – come and hail CROBOT!
The Blues-liking strings of Chris Bishop, the Groove-driven axe of Sam Grim, accompanied by the energetic beats of Tony Kobel and the mere garnish of Brandon Yeagley’s soulful voice are as one. This quartet from central Pennsylvania dedicated itself to the tunes of the past, packed up in modern-day techniques and all knowledge available to the online generation. A band so young, yet sounding so “old”, they might as well be recorded some forty years ago. When in fact their debut “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” stepped onto the face of the earth less than a month ago.
The record offers eleven songs full of dirty, grooving Rock hymns that convey a free spirit one will hardly find in any other art form these days. Could this be owed to the fact that the band derives from a town called POTTSVILLE?! Stoner, Retro, Groove or whatsoever Rock you are likely to name it, CROBOT play what they like and are able to put this passion into every single note. “The Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” was recorded, mixed and produced by Paul Trepal at Thorium Productions, LLC in Saint Clair, PA, who stated that “people are foaming at the mouth for this record.”
Along influences of bands like BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN, DEEP PURPLE and others from the old days, CROBOT count out current names such as ORCHID, CLUTCH or WOLFMOTHER that clearly ride the same Retro/Vintage wave as the four US-musicians themselves.
The most outstanding to me is the title track, that is now also featured in a video – check it out!
