A petrol station in the Arizona desert, a dry wind blowing through the bushes and a Harley stopping to refuel, the smell of burned oil and rubber... These are the images that Darkwalker recalls with the music on this album. The Wastelands is the debut of this American trio from Los Angeles. Musically the band can be situated somewhere between Monster Magnet and Audioslave: hard desert rock with stoner rock and grunge influences.

A lovely rusty guitar sound colors the tracks. We hear get melodic and clean vocals and great songs. An easy album. It rocks and revives the seventies and nineties. Like Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) and Michael Brown (Tracer), the singer has a good sounding voice. The lyrics are inspired by The Dark Tower books by Stephen King.

The Wastelands contains seven tracks. It is a great album that sounds good in the car with the volume to maximum.

Een benzinepomp in de woestijn van Arizona, een droge wind waait doorheen het struikgewas en een Harley stopt om te tanken. De geur van verbrand olie en rubber… Dit zijn de beelden die de muziek van Darkwalker bij mij oproepen. The Wastelands is het debuut van dit Amerikaanse trio uit Los Angeles. Muzikaal zit het ergens tussen Monster Magnet en Audioslave. Harde desertrock met wat stoner- en grunge-invloeden. Een heerlijk roestig gitaargeluid kleurt de tracks. Daarnaast is er sprake van melodieuze en cleane zang en goede songs. Alles samen een album dat zich lekker laat beluisteren. Het rockt als de beesten en doet de seventies alsook de nineties heropleven. Net zoals Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) of Michael Brown (Tracer) bezit de zanger een stem als een klok. Samen met de muziek horen we een stevig geheel dat roestig en ferm klinkt. Voor de teksten heeft men zich gebaseerd op de The Dark Tower-boekenreeks van Stephen King.

The Wastelands bevat zeven tracks en het mochten er wat mij betreft gerust nog wat meer zijn. Een fijne plaat die lekker klinkt in de auto met het volume hoog.
