Oakland's Totimoshi in New Video

Wed, May 23, 2007 at 5:06 PM

At least all those ugly Volcom short-sleeve button-down nerd suits are paying for something good, like Totimoshi's videos. Full release after jump. "Totimoshi's fourth CD has the syncopated looseness of early Sabbath and the howl-and-hammer rumble of late-'80s grunge. The rugged, garagey production (courtesy of Helmet's Page Hamilton) lends a genuine authenticity to the Oakland-based trio's retro-sounding sludge. Though more civilized than High on Fire and less dramatic than Neurosis, Totimoshi prove capable of delivering equally devastating music." REVOLVER MAGAZINE

"Totimoshi, however much they can and likely will appear to stoner rockers and even indie folks, are simply a great metal band.." - DECIBEL MAGAZINE

Just off a West Coast tour w/ rock legends HELMET, Oakland, CA's sludge-grunge-alt-hell-rock trio TOTIMOSHI are back w/ the follow-up to 2003's "Monoli" and 2005's re-issue of Mysterioso? to bring we mortals one of the heaviest and doom-ridden masterpieces the world of heavy rock has seen in way too long (no wonder bands like Helmet, Mastodon, Fu-Manchu, Kylesa, High on Fire, and the Melvins have tapped the band to tour and perform alongside on more than one occasion).

Bringing to mind some of history's heaviest hitters (see Blue Cheer, Tool, Nirvana, Oxbow, Helmet), "Ladron's" sludge-heavy guitar riffs, hugely-powerful bass-lines, and pummeling drums take their listener on a pseudo-psychedelic journey through space and time, and leave them wallowing in the depths of hell.
