Ooooh I liked this track from the opening notes but first let me tell you about the band!
Snakedoctors are four friends who started the band in Gdansk, Poland in May of 2020 and are a very prolific band, releasing twenty(!) singles (including a Christmas special and a song in Czech under name Jiri Blaha & Framuga Boys) and four albums, Obligation, Joy Free Bowl, Mellow Joy and Four And A Half. Band members include Wojciech Wypych (vocals, guitar, keyboards in some songs and also a little bit of drumming), Jaroslaw Szybowski (bass), Jacek Karnat (keyboard and vocals in a few songs) and Robert Porazka (drums).
Destroyed is their latest single and was released on 23/12/2022.
This track has a very grungey vibe to it, with distorted, dirty guitars, starting with a few riffs that reminded me very much of the 90’s before the track erupted into a frenzy of grungey loveliness! Yes, I am a big fan of grunge and its nice to see newer bands playing it! The guitar solo, however, is clean and well executed.
The vocals are totally awesome. Deep, gruff and with a rawness that really makes this track. There is also a quirkiness to them that really adds to the song. Back up vocals are kept to a minimum and this is of no detriment to the song as the singer handles all vocal duties with ease and really commands the track.
I love the bounciness of this song, its bombastic and the band have a really big sound.
I must admit I had never heard of Snakedoctors before reviewing this song, but I will definitely be checking them out some more.
Absolutely awesome track!
