Ohio riff rockers, LO-PAN, hurl forth another track of amplified goodness with “Eastern Seas,” now playing at Revolver.
The tune comes by way of LO-PAN‘s forthcoming Colossus full-length set for release via Small Stone Recordings later this month. Produced and engineered by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Rosetta, East Of The Wall et al) at his own Translator Audio Studio in Brooklyn, Colossus was named in honor of a gargantuan statue of the Greek titan-god of the sun, Helios, constructed in 280 BC to mark a failed siege and the indomitable nature of the Greek city of Rhodes itself.
Capital Chaos commends, “This colossus of an album delivers ten rock tracks clocking in at about forty-two minutes that you will find yourself blasting at full volume in your car. Why your car? Cause this album was bred to be listened to while driving down a desert highway, top down with a hot blonde next to you, rockin’ out right along with you as you head to the beautiful coasts of California,” The Obelisk notes, “…where their last full-length, 2011’s Salvador, was a pinnacle for their songwriting’s blend of fluid groove, soulful vocals and memorable tracks, Colossus reaps the reward of all their touring in pushing LO-PAN‘s methods even further. So it’s a meaner, more precise LO-PAN this time around…,” while Sea Of Tranquility adds, “Colossus will be a breath of fresh air for those that don’t mind a hint of the Sabbath influence but not looking for a rehash of Master Of Reality. Really strong vocals, catchy tunes, and of course plenty of great riffs make up the formula here, and it works from top to bottom.”
