Posts Tagged ‘Josh Homme’
When I heard a few months ago that Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, Josh Homme, of Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal, and John Paul Jones, Led Zeppelin, were combining forces to create a band I was skeptical at the very least.
Frankly, it seemed too good to be true.
Well not only is it true, but the group called Them Crooked Vultures let loose all 12 songs in their entirety on YouTube.
The end result is a thick album full of beefy riffs and chunky beats courtesy of Grohl. While each member’s perspective style seeps through the hard rock album, I hear more QOTSA than anything here. Perhaps that is because a large share of the vocals are Homme’s.
Of the 13 spectacular tracks, the first single, “White Fang,” stands out as the best with a monster beat, thundering bass and slightly distorted vocals.
Hear the album, which comes out Nov. 17, here.
