Product Description

Think Black Sabbath, Bardo Pond, Blue Cheer, Cream, and Zep, rolled into one, times it by three and you'll get the mighty Washington DC power trio Dead Meadow. This is their Matador debut following two releases on Joe Lally's (Fugazi) Tolotta label. "Sandwiching acid-rock improv between slabs of dope-smokin' riffage, the trio conjures images of sun goddesses, druididic seers, and 'shivering kings'"--DC City Paper.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new one from D.C.'s sledgehammer trio June 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Another (in addition to "Got Live if You Want it") top-notch release from the the D.C. stoner rock/70's metal/space-punk group . . . Like Neil Young stuck in perpetual "My My, Hey Hey (Into the Black)" mode, these guys walk around with the Hammer of the Gods hanging from their pockets, hitting you with skronky, feedback-laden guitar that flattens you like a semi hitting a squirrel. So what if you can't understand all the lyrics? To a great degree, that's sorta the point: this is mood music for folks in a not-so-great mood. The words mean very little when the aural assault is as powerful as this. Picture your favorite Led Zep instrumental passages, done up by a trio of pissed-off, melancholy kids with a strong Neil Young/howlin' wolf (the animal, not the blues great) fetish. Worth every penny.
If you're interested in the "Got Live . . ." review, check it out here at Amazon. Still working my way back to the early stuff . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars This Demands Constant Rotation April 30 2004
By Tommy
Format:Audio CD
Ok, this changes everything. These guys have been shredding fret boards for a while now, and they have found their groove with Shivering King & Others. All this talk of Black Sabbath, and Zeppelin, Neil Young...it's just scratching the surface of this utmost fantastic band. This brings to mind an image of the Maryland based band, Clutch, getting lifted with Brian Jonestown Massacre, and the guys from MC5 in the living room of the dark, and comfortably psychedelic house of Blue Cheer. Dead Meadow have come to bring the jams to your living room, so sit down, turn it up, fire up, and let these guys show you a damn good time. It has been a long time coming, and is so powerful it slaps you in the face and demands to stay.
Check out everything this band has to offer, other albums include: Their self-titled Dead Meadow, Howls from the Hills, and of course, Got Live If You Want It.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't disregard this awesome album based on the four stars, very few albums are worthly of a perfect rating. Dead Meadow's new LP delivers the hard indie rock that you have been waiting for. Including this album in the music category of stoner rock does it injustice (stoner rock is characterized by meaningless lyrics and repetitive guitar solos, none of which are a part of this album). If you like the self-titled Queens of The Stone ge album or other robot rock greats, you will be happy to hear Dead Meadow.

5.0 out of 5 stars They came to drop bombs July 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Dead Meadow set a new high water mark for lunacy delivered with absolute sincerity. More cohesive, focussed, and mind-numbingly heavy than all their previous LPs put together, and that is saying alot. Like Spacemen3 and Black Sabbath getting stuck in the Brundle teleporter and coming out the other an improbable amalgam. On the one hand, ludicrous, on the other, so very very right. Right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not buying this is musical suicide June 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
just like shooting yourself in the head. The third from D. Meadow carries the enchanting elements of their first two records and heads in new directions as well. Solid songs interspersed with psychedelic interludes. More rocking than the "rebirth of rock" that you keep hearing about. If you want to expand your mind, this is a fast, cheap way to do it.
