Buffalo Killers – Heavy Reverie (2014) review

Buffalo Killers “Heavy Reverie” (Sun Pedal Recordings, 2014) 
Cincinnati based rock band Buffalo Killers recorded their
6th album “Heavy Reverie”.
In 2014, after eight years, Buffalo Killers gone from trio
to quartet by adding Sven Kahns on second guitar and lap steel, giving the
band`s lead singer and guitarist Zachary Gabbard more comfort. They sound
confident and more mature. Produced by Jim Wirt, new Buffalo`s recordings sound
flat as the previous albums. But that`s OK. After years they managed to create
and push on their unique and familiar sound, in order to differ from others. Album
starts with heavy riffing “Poisonberry Tide” showing that band`s burning for
desire to explode the speakers. “Dig on it” is a fantastic tune, reminding of
60s/70s hard rock like Cream or Black Sabbath.
Followed by a nice tunes “The girls has grown” and “Cousin
Todd”, album breaks with some solid hard rocking on “Sandbox” and “Who you
“I`m in a sandbox, deep in my sandbox, nobody gets me” sings
Zachary on fantastic psychedelic tune “Sandbox”, showing some diversity also in
album production. “Grape Peel (How I Feel)” is a piece of introduction to the
epic album conclusion.
Great guitar riff on “Louder than your lips” rides the album
into a grand finale with great “Shake” and dazing “January”.
Their touring with The Black Keys and collaboration with Dan
Auerbach on their second album “Let it Ride” in 2007, left a mark on their
creativity and music experience. After that, the band hit the big stages and
got more gigs. Years of experience led Buffalo Killers to the band who knows
what they`re doing and how to do it right.
Andy Gabbard said in his 2013 interview for Its Psychedelic
Baby – ”Nothing is slowing us down anytime soon” and the band still stands for
his words.
