Best New Music: FORCE FIELD by The Atomic Bitchwax

One of the last major stoner publications to be released this year, Force Field by American supergroup The Atomic Bitchwax is immediately noted as one of the most powerful records of 2017. Always linked by a particular relationship with the stoner legends Monster Magnet –  a band with which they have always shared some of the main members of the line-up – this rock project founded by Chris Kosnik almost 25 years ago has always been characterized by an absolute quality in music publications. And their last LP, released in December 2017, absolutely confirms this rule.

From the first seconds since we push the button on our music player, we are greeted by the usual sequence of thick, energetic and impenetrable riffs, an element that has always been one of the main characteristics of their works. And continuing along this stoner ride without leaving the accelerator pedal if only for a few moments – we will soon arrive, in little more than 35 minutes, at the conclusion of this umpteenth masterpiece in the band’s discography. To all effects this is a pure and furious musical assault, but played with a precision and a level of effectiveness that are quite uniqe in modern stoner. And somehow, precisely because of this stylistic coherence among most of the twelve songs of the LP, this work seems really to continue the path already started with the previous album.

In an age where every band seems to battle for the longest song average, and brevity is the soul of last century, The Atomic Bitchwax go refreshingly against the stream. Their mission is simple: rock out, rock hard and rock fucking fast. Force Field is a barreling barrel of fun, unpretentious stoner rock complete with ludicrous guitars and strong vocals (Angry Metal Guy)

The album was released on December 8th, 2017, via Tee Pee Records.

Recommended tracks: Shocker, CrazyHippie Speedball, Shell of a Man.
