Berlin, Germany’s heavily fuzzed out stoner rock troupe HAWERY is fully prepared for release of their debut album ‘Feast Of Vultures, due out tomorrow (October 16th) on Karma Conspiracy Records. Today, we’re honored to share an advance stream of the album in full.

Formed in 2017, HAWERY was initially conceived as a classic stoner rock band by vocalist Daniel, and the group quickly found their own style. Containing five members – Lars and Christoph on guitars, vocalist Daniel, Benjamin on drums, and bassist Thomas – who previously spent time within bands based in the black metal, thrash, punk, and hardcore genres, each of them was deeply into stoner rock. With that appreciation, they developed their unique sound for HAWERY.

The boldly thematic cover artwork by Razoreater, the new album was recorded in 2019 at Hidden Planet Studio in Berlin and in 2020, HAWERY joined forces with Karma Conspiracy Records to release their debut ‘Feast of Vultures‘ full-length in both digital and vinyl pressing.

The band shares some details about the album:

While writing ‘Feast of Vultures’ we tried to combine a classic Stoner record with the music we like the most. Since all band members have their origin in different genres of music we didn’t settle for a certain style. We were crossing borders and blurring genres a little bit. Taking what we like about Thrash, Hardcore or Punk. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered in December 2019 by Jan Oberg at Hidden Planet Studios in Berlin and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

We found the perfect label and it is a pleasure for us to join forces with Phil from Karma Conspiracy Records. It is somehow strange to put out a record in these times, not performing it live, but we are totally thrilled to release our debut via Riff Relevant and hope you guys like what you hear.

Feast Of Vultures‘ tells the story of a somehow dystopian scenery, a wasteland. A struggle for survival in a world full of threats and primeval fears. The record is about isolation and insanity, as well as how to overcome them and rise again. Despair and devastation always go hand in hand with hope and rebirth.

Take a break and soak in HAWERY‘s album streaming in its entirety below. You’ll find massive levels of fuzz covered stoner rock, with strong touches of psych rock and occasionally the darker intensity of doom metal.

Tomorrow, October 16th, brings this release to the public’s ears via Karma Conspiracy Records and is available to order in physical format vinyl variants in either standard black or solid red color pressing, as well as digital download or streaming through most outlets.  Grab a copy of ‘Feast Of Vultures‘ through Bandcamp [HERE].

The Struts master the classic rock arts on third album Strange Days

An instant rock-down classic from The Struts on third album Strange Days (as long as you ignore the title track and Robbie Williams)




In the realm of classic rock, authenticity is everything. There’s a very thin line between homage and pastiche, particularly when it comes to pomp-rock and glam-metal, to which our cultural radars are laser-tuned. The likes of Queen, Def Leppard and AC/DC might be struck through with a rich seam of humour, but when emulating them any hint of tongue approaching cheek sets off The Darkness alarms. 

This genre is appreciative of tribute, but wary of mockery. Derby’s The Struts judged the balance sufficiently well to become a minor US rock sensation with their first two albums, Everybody Wants and Young & Dangerous

Their hints of a modern synthetic tone and contemporary beat are in keeping with the commercial gloss of much of 80s hair-rock, but their 2018 remix of Body Talks featuring Kesha revealed a more cynical crossover eye.

Our advice is to forget the title track exists, start the album on the second track, the glam AC/DC All Dressed Up (With Nowhere To Go), and enjoy a record of instant, solid-gold riff-rock classics. 

Air-punchers abound, steeped in roadhouse gristle, steamy tales of women sexed and lost, and the sort of multi-tracked chant choruses that saw a million tiger skin legging-wearing heroes narrowly escape death by pyro in 1986. Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen even show up in person on stomp rocker I Hate How Much I Want You. Authenticity restored.

The Struts have clearly mastered the classic rock arts, be they glam-metal (You Love Me) or roots Americana (the sublime, grainy Burn It Down, all lolloping guitars and bar-room piano). 

Luke Spiller has a massive monster truck voice, and guitarist Adam Slack can make his solos sound like construction workers doing Cirque de Soleil stunts from their cranes. 

Where they transcend homage, though, is in welcoming the influence of their guest stars: The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. helps turn Another Hit Of Showmanship, a smart rewrite of the fame-as-drug metaphor, into a new-wave surf smash, while Tom Morello steals the show with a voodoo-rock turn on Wild Child, dripping seditious sleaze. And that’s how you silence the Darkness alarms.

Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown’s Pressure is a true coming of age

Backed into a corner in the fourth round, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown come out fighting on Pressure




Recorded in his basement under lockdown, with the band down to a three-piece (Tyler Bryant played bass himself), this album could have been lowkey. 

But no. It began as one song – the upbeat Crazy Days – recorded in response to the pandemic flipping the world upside-down, grew into an EP, and emerged as a fully-fledged fourth album. 

By turns heavy (Pressure and Fuel), bluesy (the barbed-wire slide-filled Hitchhiker) and funky (Wildside), its palette of styles is richer than on previous records.

Okay, Automatic echoes early Aerosmith, Misery follows Nazareth’s take on Woody Guthrie’s Vigilante Man… but even the bluesy Loner and the T Bone Burnett-style acoustic Coastin’ sound fresh. 

Three songs feature Bryant’s wife Rebecca Lovell (of roots-rock duo Larkin Poe) on vocals, and Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr sings on Holdin’ My Breath, but it peaks with the poignant, soul-searching beauty of Like The Old Me. Bryant has truly come of age with this record.

The spirit of rock’n’roll lives on with Tommy Lee’s Andro, if not its music

Expecting Shout At Devil? Better look away from Tommy Lee’s Andro now




This record will have many Mötley Crüe fans screaming in terror. Because anyone expecting Looks That Kill or Kickstart My Heart is in the wrong hallway. 

Lee has never done the obvious on his solo albums, and Andro is no different, with hardly a trace of the hard rock with which he made his name. 

Instead he mixes rap, Afrobeat, electronica, pop and dance, and in a way that really works. Let’s be honest, were it not for his name there’s no way this album would even be considered for review in Classic Rock

And apart from a respectful cover of Prince’s When You Were Mine there’s little that links this Tommy Lee to the Tommy Lee behind the Crüe kit. But that’s the point.

Working with rappers and like-minded vocalists, he has created music that deserves everyone to put aside prejudice and listen.
