All four tracks are powerful, in-your-face and the variety of sounds makes the final result extremely interesting. The sound is raw and gives the impression that you are in a live gig! The vocalist, Andy Valliant really shines here with his rough and 'deep' voice and the rhythm section is tight as hell. I think that OAK's best sample here is the groovy and powerful opening tune of "All Above". "Queen Of This Land" is okay while the 7 minute "Ride With Me" grabs you with its almost Black Sabbath-esque dark guitar sound and Valliant's impressive raw vocals!!! "Dissolve" closes this EP perfectly. A rockier tune with some excellent guitar licks and a more straight forward sound.
For sure, OAK's new EP left me with the best impressions, no doubt 'bout that. This 4-piece rock band from London stays true to its roots of the classic Brit stoner rock scene, puts the necessary groove and attitude and, at the end, achieves to release a solid project.
