Beastwood: With music that should be played during every Patrick Swayze bar-fight…..

Beastwood - The Long Road To Ho

After unleashing their latest single Electric Gangbang in February, Beastwood have now released their new EP The Long Road To Ho via Coffin & Bolt Records / Golden Robot Records. It is available on all digital platforms.

«Music that should be played during every Patrick Swayze bar-fight ever just might be the most accurate description one could ever come up with to describe a band like Beastwood. Stoner, sludgy with doomy undertones blended with echoes of Clutch, Crowbar and Down all adds up to one hell of a band».

«The Long Road To Ho is heavy riff-rock soaked in sludge and southern barbecue. Then maybe served at the fair and labeled, not for the faint of heart. Rowdy rock with loads of attitude and riffs to match make this band infectious and can get even the non-believers to nod their heads to the beat. Talent comes in many shapes and sizes but in this case, it’s a howling werewolf from the desert»,  The Casper District

Forming in late 2010, Beastwood hit the ground running. Six quick months after the band’s inception (including the release of two demos and an EP), they headed west to Salt Lake City, Utah to record their full-length debut record Sex Devil. 12 tracks of seriously raw and dirty rock that received heavy praise from their peers in similar genres.

The following years from 2011-2013 saw the band continuing to build their fan base in and out of state by touring, hosting their own music festivals, being the go-to for co-headlining acts with bands such as Puddle Of Mudd, Dope, Soil, and Texas Hippie Coalition. Despite being constantly on the road, they were writing very frequently which had ultimately lead to the release of their very anticipated, polished, and exceedingly heavier sophomore release Alabama Space Witch.

 Following the release of Alabama Space Witch, with the heavy promotion of the record’s single Galactic Bison, the band continued with their noses to the grindstone on more shows, more touring, and more hard work. After almost 5 straight years of heavy rotation in their local region of the United States, the band took a hiatus to focus on other projects and family life. With never any intention of stopping, the band quietly still worked on their craft while promising to release their best material yet.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
