"Goatsnake take some of the sickest elements of Sabbath and present them in both an urgent and compelling contemproary rock fashion. Don't get me wrong, it's not retro 70s rock (or a Monster Magnet rip-off) like much of 'Snake's Stoner Rock Contemporaries. But the influence of Sabbth - ALL of Sabbath - is here on "I" (they're debut full length). There's the footstomping thunder roll of "Slippin' The Stealth" and "Trower", the Doom drenched ramblings of "IV" and "Lord Of Los Feliz", and of course the Goatsnake classic, "Mower" (which long-time stoners will remember from the posthumous "Welcome To MeteorCity" landmark compilation). Goatsnake's dynamic prowess is most evident on the epic "What Love Remains". Start with Goatsnake here on "I" - it's a must have, young Stoner Jedi - and work into "Dog Days" and the Burning Witch Split if they cactch you by surprise.By the way, contrary to the previous reviewer, there is nobody in this band from The Melvins. NOBODY. Goatsnake boast members of Wool, Engine Kid, The Obsessed, and, well, to tell you the truth there was a Kyuss member there for a spell (DO YOUR HOMEWORK!), but there was NEVER a Melvin. Christ, this is how retarded rumors start and artists laugh their tattoos off... so, actually, for that matter, there were members of Solace, Unida, and Drag Pack there for a while too."
THIS RATES INFINITE NUMBER OF STARS......

"this sadly out of print monster has to be heard to be beleived.sludgy bluesy sabbath worshipping guitar riffs that will lock into your skull for days....drumming is right on,bass is stellar and then you have the vocals!this guy actually sings!
of all the countless "stoner rock"/doom/sludge/sabbath knock-off bands out there,this is EASILY one of the best that you will ever hear."
