Crobot Motherbrain album cover.jpgThe powerful Pennsylvanian quartet that is Crobot will soon unleash this raging rock 'n' roll monster of theirs via Mascor Records, and I sincerely believe that this fourth full-length attack of theirs is the most accomplished and musically rewarding Crobot release to date.

The loud and fuzzy guitars are perfectly suited to the relentlessly heavy rhythm section, and Brandon Yeagley's voice is imbued with passion as well as a sense of commitment and wholehearted devotion to whatever theme or topic the lyrics in question revolve around. In fact, the words to the songs appear to have more of a personal angle to them this time around, which is to say that they focus on everyday struggles and inner turmoil (or the various highs and lows in life, if you will) among others things. There are quite prevalent nods and winks to glorious 70s hard rock throughout and "Motherbrain" is overwhelmingly bombastic, but the compositions also have plenty of light and shade to them, which is nicely illustrated by the slightly sombre "Stoning the Devil", the scorching "Low Life", and the anthem-like highlight of the disc that is "Destroyer".

"Motherbrain" is a strong and highly competent affair that never lets up in terms of energy and determination. On top of that, it is soaked in a delightfully warm atmosphere. Regardless of whether you are into Kyuss and early Soundgarden or Black Sabbath and Rival Sons, this record is for you.
