Album Review: Thulsa Doom – A Keen Eye For the Obvious (Stickman Records)

Thulsa Doom are back with their first album in 12 years! A stoner-rock band that made a huge impact in their native country of Norway back in the early to mid-2000s. A Keen Eye for the Obvious will be released on the 16th February 2018 via Stickman Records.

Thulsa Doom 1

A lighter & more classic rock orientated start, Lady Nina has all the bounce & groove of Thin Lizzy, with the melodies of Deep Purple and the energy of Van Halen.

The heavier riffing & gunfire approach to the vocals of Eloquent Profanity, the melodic strumming & overpowering bassy-ness of Wrap The Bad Up and the rhythmic groove of Shadows On the X-Rays keep the body moving & the head banging.

Even when delivering soft moments, Tulsa Doom excel in bringing really soulful sounding music as the excellent Consider Me proves.

The latter half of the album doesn’t drop the quality, as the stoner rock brilliance bubbles to the surface. The vocals & chorus of Bag of Fries are so catchy, you’ll be singing along instantly, Quest for Fire’s disjointed guitar work keeps the album on its toes before Baby, Hate It delivers a tongue in cheek finale.

A Keen Eye for the Obvious is a great album, one that brings a level of catchiness that will appeal to just about anyone.
