Review: Ironweed – Indian Ladder [2009]

amazon-ironweedAlbany, NY quintet Ironweed take matters into their own hands on debut disc INDIAN LADDER. Boasting ex-members of Greatdayforup, this band displays sludgy stoner metal chops on cuts like “Thorn” and “Rid The Earth” yet make a fair share of intriguing detours within the metal spectrum on tracks like “Lifeless Coil” and “Penny for Your Prayers” to keep  your smoked skull active. Brimming over with dirty grooves, thick riffs, and a solid vocal performance that cohesively ties it all together, Ironweed nicely fills the gap left by Alabama Thunderpussy while throwing in choice chunks of metallic goodness a la Down for that kick in the ass listening experience you’ve been craving. www.smallstone.com -Mike SOS
