Gandhi's Gunn - The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound Review

The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound Cover Art

Gandhi's Gunn are a Hard Rocking Stoner Metal Band from Genova, Italy.

The members are:

Vocals - Giacomo [Hobo] Boeddu
Bass - Massimo [Dale P.] Perasso
Guitar - Francesco [Scazzi] Raimondi
Drums - Andrea Tabbì De Bernardi

Gandhi's Gunn play a hard hitting blend of Stoner Metal and Hard Rock to impress the listener with. These guys are masters of the riff.

They first burst onto the scene in 2010 with their excellent debut album "Thirtyeahs" which was rightly acclaimed by us Stoners. It should a band who knew how to write a great heavy pounding riff with great vocals to match.

Well the guys are back with their outstanding new album - "The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound". An 8 song and 40 blast of top-notch Stoner Metal riffs.

Influenced by Clutch, Down, Corrosion of Conformity and Fu Manchu these hard rocking Italians put their own spin on the genre. They incorporate different styles of guitar riffing on their album to stand out from the crowd.

The album is expertly played and produced by all involved. All of the tracks are Stoner Metal brilliance of the highest order.

The band are masters at writing short sharp Stoner Metal tracks such as Haywire, Under Siege and Red (The Colour of God). These run for about 2 mins to 4 mins but shows the bands talent at writing a top-notch  Stoner riff that any well known Stoner Metal band would be proud to call their own.

The album has 2 aces up its sleeve which make this a brilliant album for me. The two epic tracks - Flood and Hypothesis. Both running for 8 mins and 10:30 mins respectively, these are the tracks show why they are rated so highly.

Both of them are full of amazing riffs and vocals that leave an impression that lasts long into the memory. 

These are my two fave tracks of this brilliant album. It shows the band have a talent for writing and playing long-drawn out epics that take their time in building up the tension and atmosphere before the loud riffage kicks in. When it does there is no turning back.

Italy has a great track record of providing top notch Sludge/Stoner Metal bands such as Zippo, Ufomammut, Morkobot. Well add Gandhi's Gunn to that list. One of the finest Italian Stoner Metal bands I have heard this year.

I hope this album launches this band onto the international stage as they have the talent and songs to really go far. The Longer The Beard The Harder The Sound is a fucking monster and I urge you all to buy it when it comes out on April 27th 2012 via Taxi Driver Records..

Even the artwork is brilliant. This is a top-notch album by a truly talented band that have became a fave of mine over the last couple of weeks.

Highly Recommended.
