Hailing from San Antonio , Texas, THUNDER HORSE is a Metal band that got his membership card for things Psych, Doom,Stoner and Classic Rock Blues club. A genre that are no longer unknown for many if us fellow metallers around the globe. But they do it in a way that we’re not that much used to.Vocals are authentic,sincere,got another sound and approach that spices the meat.It was recorded by Bishop, Connally, West, Crow and John “JV4” Valenzuela mixed by Caleb Bingham at Nightmare Sound Los Angeles, CA and mastered by Joe Bozzi at Bernie Grundman Mastering Hollywood, CA. We have six songs here, clocking at approximately 45 minutes.They aren’t signed yet but it is a matter of time . The  cover art is killer and remind me of "SLEEP‘s "Dopesmoker." Through the  album we have pounding drums, amazing riffs and melodies (especially vocals) and Todd Connally bangs many impressive solos here and there.Enough to catch my attention. THUNDER HORSE isn’t that Epic or Traditional doom Outfit. More of a refined and revisiting one,with newer textures and without denigrating it.

"Coming home" is a hyper strong song due to vocals harmonies like ALICE IN CHAINS  used. You cannot be moved while listening to this frenetic track. Let’s say it’s an incredible starter. The chorus is mesmerizing. DOOM N ROLL! " Blood ritual " is massive , loud as fuck , but i’m not talking about the amps. The  way its sung the way solos are melting in your face. EXCELLENT SONG. Loudness, slowness, grooviness and guitars crying between two rhythm chords. I love it. "Demon speaker"is a sabbath worship done with class and originality.They know how to press the greatest parts and get the fluid pure and possessing  its own  essence and force us to plug it in our veins. "This is the end" got  narrative samples and some vocals psychedelia crazy nightmare-esqe reverb  powered chants.The second half is a hell of a solo machine with nasty foreground riffs.KILLER!

"Pray for rain" is like flying on a virtual plane arms wide open and reaching the sun. You're not convinced yet? this album is a must buy for all doom, rock, psychedelic , occult rock lovers. This album got all it needs to raise their flag among giants of the genre. Now come play here guys! I can’t wait to see what ‘s next!Long life the thunder horse! Labels, what are you waiting for??? Look here and have a blast!
