Amoeba Review

02/22/2017

As far as supergroups go, it's hard to get a cooler posse together than Crystal Fairy. With Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover of the Melvins, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At The Drive-In and The Mars Volta, and Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes, the band delivers a sound steeped in technical prowess and anchored down with a fresh personality and emotion that is often lacking in other superstar collaborations. The group's rhythm section delivers the punk/metal riff goods, while the vocals of Teri Gender Bender give the sludgy music a texture and sharpness often unheard in similar sounding outfits. The title track's main riff is pure stoner rock thickness, while sometimes hitting those sweet tones of Black Sabbath's more regal sounding songs. Album opener "Chiseler" is an aggressive chugger with vocals sometimes reminiscent of heavy metal arena rockers like Rob Halford and King Diamond, while "Drugs on the Bus" is a crunchy bad trip with tinges of psychedelia.
