Hostal Handshake - Hellish

Hostal Handshake - Hellish

\r\nSo… this is Hostal Handshake from Athens.Listening to their first album “Hellish” I found myself surpised in the most positive way. First of all Hostal Handshake sounds equal to foreign bands like Kyuss, Monster Magnet or Spiritual Beggars.
\r\nThe Album “Hellish” contains 9 heavy / stoner rock compositions with a bit more “metalic” touch. The album is full of the classic Stoner Rock riffage while the vocals turn from the melodic lines of choruses to high pitched and into more “dirty” full of power and agression, the way should be to fit in their music. The guitar sound is Iommi school and they sound to boosted in specific parts that you feel it’s sound as a gravestone while the Wah pedal suffered too much during the recording sessions. The Rhythm section is solid in all of the tracks, with very nice drumming and bassplaying. Another worth to mention point of the band that makes it special is the funky elements (for example the song “Reveries”)
\r\nOne of the best points of the album is for sure the production , that is more than “pro” so gives the opportunity to these 9 tracks to be sounded the way It should.
\r\nI have only to wish good luck to Hostal Handshake, and im looking forward to their next release.
