Colin M. Great heavy blues-infused stoner rock with vocals that sound more like a roar than anything else, and it sounds damn good. Favorite track: BC Trucker.

HastyGambit Wo Fatty round the edges, this is Stoner Rock with all the trimmings.

Meaty, chewy riffs with a side order of the blues and slathered with wonderful gruff vocals.

All this means that TMGT are fast becoming one of my favourite bands. Favorite track: Gladstone.

Track Name: Gladstone
Where did you come out
Speak out your name and I breathe
Holdin’ the breast of your young one and
Prayin’ for sleep

And I said
Again
And I read
Amen

It's not enough to
Lay in the dark
Reach for the one that you broken
Say to the stars

And I said
Again
And I read
Amen

I'm not the one that made you leave
Holdin’ your head upon your knees
But I'll be the one that makes you cry
Track Name: BC Trucker
Transmit your thoughts while you compose
An ontistic holdin’ of the notes

I'm givin you self regret
I'm givin you self regret
I'm givin it all up to the leaves

Be all my sins
Be all within
Be all my sins
My sins remembered

The holy merit of what it takes
Just wanna reach four lines
To fill that voided space

I'm givin you self regret
I'm givin you self regret
I'm givin it all up to the leaves

Be all my sins
Be all within
Be all my sins
Track Name: Arvonia
Whoa go bring me my shotgun
Ima start shootin’ again
Whoa go fetch me my 12 gauge
Ima gonna shoot that man
I know he was with you I'm takin’ his life
But stick around after him I'll show you my knife
But I ain't gonna kill you
Just wanna make you obey

Turn it up till you feel the guitar bite
Rock ‘n’ roll is here to take my life

Whoa go bring me my coffee everything will be alright
You know a man’s got needs I work hard you gotta sacrifice
There's a war out there it's heavy and it's rough
Well stick with me woman
Cause I'm bold and I'm tough
Just bring me my coffee
Everything will be alright

Turn it up till you feel the guitar bite
Rock ‘n’ roll is here to take my…

Get up
On the mic
Come on
And get down tonight
Let out
The internal fight
Turn up
We’re gettin’ loud tonight
Track Name: The Canfield
And I will be true to my love
If my Love will be true to me

When the voices call ya name
Better come inside
I’m leading you up the stairs
Oh in the Canfield line

I'm leavin’ your sufferin’
I'm takin’ you blind
I'm leading your wedding
I'm leavin’ your tortured life

When the Indians come to life
From that hotel they sleep
They'll cut you in half my girl
Oh and you'll break at the knees

I'm leavin’ your sufferin’
I'm takin’ you blind
I'm leading your wedding
I'm leavin’ your tortured life

When you pass the welcome sign
You see the children lie
They've tortured their guests in here
And left their bodies to die

I'm leavin’ your sufferin’
I'm takin’ you blind
I'm leading your wedding
I'm leavin’ your tortured life
Track Name: Straight To The North
The ship set sail outta port
Deaded to the north

The fear and the smell of the sea
Will make you break
We're far out from land
So there won't be a hole in our way
Now bind with your footsteps
No longer grief will ingest
The dark was the night so my eyes
Can lay to rest

To all the men on board
Full speed the course
My heavy head is a port
Straight to the north

I once had a lady
That told me that we could be free
But I'm trapped on this boat
So for now my life will be the sea

Hold on to something
Cause this storm is rollin’ on in
My hands held by death
So god forgive me for all my sins

To all the men on board
Full speed the course
My heavy head is a port
Track Name: No. 227
I'm takin’ you downtown
To the back of the stage
Just gimme the one chance
And I'll bend the game

And it's hard to tell them
What I wanna be
It's even harder to break through
So I just scream

Not one step back
Not one step back

It's really easy to stand out
When you’re all the same
I been in town for two years
And you’re the ones to blame

But it's hard to show them
What they wouldn't see
It's even harder to hang on
So I just scream

Not one step back
Not one step back

Raise your hands
To the gods
Raise ‘em up
To break the cause
Raise your hands
To the gods
Track Name: The Little Sparrow
It's 3:34 in the morning
And I still haven't gone to bed
I shake and scream and tug at my ears
From a song stuck in my head
I know that I have heard it before
And it's notes they make me weep
This song comes burrowing through endless night
As I desperately try to sleep
Its tune is haunting and evil to me
My insides are starting to show
This brutal song keeps playin’ on
And this is how it goes

Padam padam padam
Padam padam padam

I been a martyr witnessed hell
But never a horror like this
It's paralyzing and breaks me down
Leaves a tightness in my chest
I fear that it’s the end of me
These chords they rip so deep
I can't control the energy I get
When the notes begin to leap
It has a line that mellows out
And I can breathe one more breath
But then the bridge comes storming in
And this is what it says

Padam padam padam
Padam padam padam

How could music feel so free
And still take all that you have
I thought you were my savior once
But now I see you are my death
An unrequited love we have
I give it all at every show
But you take and take and bury my heart
And try to strip away my soul
I have a wife I have two sons
But you snap them up in two
Padam padam padam you scream
To this song my life I give to you
So I’ll sit here and pick the notes in my head
Across this beaten guitar
And I'll continue throughout eternity
Because the end is still so far
Track Name: Twin Souls
I can't look back if you fall behind
Or else they'll creep up on the line
We’re off to war go fetch your gun
So we can all bleed in the Spanish sun

And it's alright
Because I'm free
Thank God the Twin Souls
Are feeding me

Sagrada Família is comin’ down
While the enemies take on all the rounds
We’re in the land of rabbits lived the kingdom one
To slaughter your children and take your sons

And it's alright
Because I'm free
Thank God the Twin Souls
Are feeding me
Track Name: Mantis
When you’re talkin’ alone
I can't wait in line
I been feelin’ your sickness
Fallin’ down the vine
I can hear you callin’ out the bottom of the name
In the back of my mind
Holding down with your sufferin’
For the wicked minds

I’ve gone
Head strong
I’ve gone
Head strong
