CD Review: La Chinga-Free Wheelin'(Available March 25, 2016) Small Stone Recordings/ Earsplit PR

Doing the time warp again this band does a great job of taking you back to the groovy days of 60's/70's great Rock n Roll!!

From their bio:

It was 2012 in the dark wilderness of Vancouver, British Columbia where lost youths teemed in search of the true power of rock; three men chosen by occult forces too sinister to name rose up in answer to that dire and baleful call. LA CHINGA was born!

With their electric black magic unleashed and in full flight, they bonded with the children of the forest over Cro-Magnon riffery, pounding drums, banshee wails, bell bottoms, boogie vans and the sweet miracle of tequila. Through sheer stupidity, brutality, violence and volume they honed their primordial craft into a sonic axe of stone, opening skulls with deadly precision for as far as the pterodactyl flew. They would meet regularly, when the moon was full, filling their bellies with intoxicating wild berries, their faces wet with lizard blood as they summoned an unholy frenzy of orgiastic riffage, bashing out pagan odes to long forgotten Bronze Age deities.

If you were to take a listen to some of their influences that are clearly shown on their Facebook page --you can 100% hear the influences playing through their music this is the list:

Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, James Gang, Deep Purple, Leafhound, Buffalo, Sir Lord Baltimore, Motorhead, UFO, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, Humble Pie, Stooges.

That is a great list of music to be referring to when telling others of your idols but then being able to pull it off and not sing their songs but your own and make them your own and original as well.

Here is the first video from the album:

This is just one of those albums you cannot stop playing and enjoy it more and more each time you play it --again and again.
