If Gravity X took stoner rock back to ground zero, Phi is the band's first step forward. With the basic structure defined on Gravity X, Truckfighters is now able to stretch out and add new flourishes to their songwriting. Phi broach the melodic, layered territory of Mammoth Volume and Dexter Jones' Circus Orchestra. The band still knows how to lay down the fuzz, though, tracks that swing straight at you with an almost ungodly rumble of distortion. Make no mistake, Truckfighters has once again delivered with Phi. If you're a fan of their previous work, you'll find this one to your liking.

There are bloody chunks of fuzz a-plenty, but there is also a more mature and adept emphasis on composition and ensemble playing. The tuneage comes across as thoughtful, melody-rich and dynamic, but chockablock with heaviness and passion as well. Mix nā€™ match Swedish distortion lords Dozer with the more progressive styling of fuzz-prog daddies Mammoth Volume.

Truckfighters are one of THE best stonerrock bands around these days, if not one of the best ever.
