Instrumental stoner sludge straight out of the bleak and swampy fields of Oudenburg, Belgium. There, near the seaside town of Oostende, the three brethren called Motsus have crafted a masterpiece called OuMuaMua. Heavy on every front, the riffs take center stage and drag you along before you can lock in with the rest of the rhythms. It’s that ‘anti’ thing that the Melvins are known for; suck you in first, freak you out second and then level the playing field by turning into something massive. It’s big, bad and bold. Just listen to Exploder (Part I) for instance. The way they rumble on and pound away is simply majestic. You will be treated to bloody dirges and stomping, dragging rhythms that are bursting with fantastic breaks and changes over which the bass chops away angrily. Riffs that dizzy like air-wielding motorchains and rousing guitar-lines that drag you along towards the abyss. Their brutish, boorish, bison atmospheres become instantly legendary and it is all there… On OuMuaMua… Motsus! A wild monster that will stomp on the terra and most people will fear it. And rightly so. For when the beast lurches in your direction, it is already much too late to start running…
