I really would have liked to have seen these dudes rock when they came over but unfortunately I only have this CD to go by... and it's a fucking rock beast. Wino the singer / guitarist must have been kicking out the jams now for nearly 20 years in legendary bands like the Obsessed and Saint Vitus. Spirit Caravan follow in this tradition because all they ever want to do is rock out some heavily Black Sabbath influenced 70's metal. This collection of tunes sees a good incorporation of bluesy doom metal to straight out heavy riffing and epic soloing. The booklet looks really good (cover art by Lungfish singer Daniel Higgs) with some cool live shots of the group and their tattoo's. Tolotta is the record label run by Joe Lally, he and Ian MacKaye were big Obsessed fans.

Primal stoner rock and roll groove.
