Anger Management: Stimulatör

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Every fortnight, we check in with all things heavy on RTRFM’s Critical Mass show.

This week’s band comes to us courtesy of the highly influential and excellent Band Of The Week blog, curated by the mighty Fenriz! This blog shines a light on some excellent underground bands and has showcased bands such as Ghost and Beastmilk in their early days.

Quote from the man himself: “Lars himself sent me this. it is without bass guitar as of yet but I was blown away, very good rock ‘n’ roll/metal/punk at first and then when the last part starts…it got EPIC! PERFECT!”

Stimulatör come from Lübeck, Germany. That’s all I can find about this band information wise, but perhaps Lars could be from Red Harvest? Mystery aside they have produced a tasty slice of punked up, black-n-roll. The guitar tone reminds me a bit of Rebel Extravaganza era Satyricon (and oddly the band Virus also). And then at the 2:15 mark things get very epic with an awesome outro of melodic tremolo riffage. Superb, and the real kicker is that this early mix has no bass yet!

A nice fuzzed out bass rumble would really be the cherry on top of this. Can’t wait to hear the finished product and more songs.

Critical Mass airs every Wednesday from 9PM (GMT+8) on RTR FM 92.1 in Perth, Australia.
