"The Dawning of the Finite Moment of Now"
Genres: stoner rock, hard rock
Jun 16 - 22 2003
are a newly formed stoner rock band with something to prove.
They've got a nice sound, incorporating both hard stoner influences
and pop aspects into their musical concoction, and hard rock fans are
bound to be pleased. The inclusion of keyboards in their
instrumentation is a nice touch, hinting at a more melodic approach
than most of the similar-minded material out there.
Their songs are very tight, but the recording quality
There is a lot to rave about on The Dawning.
"Going Nowhere," for example, is an absolutely ravishing
track. While the vocals sound a bit awkward at first, by the end
of the song you'll find yourself headbanging to the riffs and humming
along to the surprisingly infectious chorus. "Slider,"
meanwhile, is instrumental until the last minute, when it becomes an
atmospheric space rock tune. On the other hand, we've got
"The Meatman Cometh," which is a hard-learned lesson in low production
Altogether, Gravitron's The Dawning of a Finite Moment of
Now is an interesting cross-breeding of stoner metal and space
rock. While it's not without its problems, the music is a very psychedelic brew, and a fun one at that.
