Motorhead, Thin Lizzy and Black Sabbath are all touchstones that inform the riffy metal of Saviours. The Oakland, CA, band is more hard rock than screamy/throaty stuff, summoning fierce triplet-informed grooves that should titillate the Queens of the Stone Age and Burning Brides camps.Tour mates Black Cobra are equally turbocharged, playing super-fast sludge metal with Marshall stacks to spare. Lawrence's own doom purveyors Samothrace set the stage.
