Cloud Catcher Trails of Kozmic Dust Review





Denver’s
Cloud Catcher have been burning up oxygen with their brand of riff fuelled cosmic groove since their formation in 2013 and as those lucky enough to have heard the bands 2015 debut ”
Enlightened Beyond Existence” will tell you, these guys know how to rock a riff or two.

The band,
Rory Rummings (guitar/vocals),
Kameron Wentworth (bass) and
Jared Soloman Handman (drums), recently signed with
Totem Cat Records, a move culminating in the release of their second album ”
Trails of Kozmic Dust

Driven by the the influences of heavy blues laced 70’s hard rock bands like (early)
Grand Funk Railroad, Cream and
Mountain and salted with touches of
Hendrix-esque guitar pyrotechnics ”
Trails of Kozmic Dust” is very much an album born of the past but existing in the present.
Cloud Catcher are no retro band trying to recapture an age however, these guys bring into their heavy rocking grooves elements of todays doom, psych and stoner, blending them with those of yesterday and creating a sound that manages to stand alone while still complimenting both periods.

From the
Mountain-esque grooves of opener”
Astral Warlord” to the
Budgie -like riffs and motif’s of final track ”
Righteous Ruler
Cloud Catcher pay homage and tribute to those that have gone before and those that are yet to come, the trio laying down fuzz drenched stoner/hard rock grooves packed with swirling bluesy guitar solo’s, spine crumbling bass and tight solid percussion. Add to this the grainy, powerful blues drenched vocal tones of
Rummings and you arrive at an album that you not only should but must check out …..
