Fast rising Doom metal crew, THE RHUBARB, release a spanking new lyric video, Drag Me To Hell, on Friday 4th December. They have plucked the single from their recently released EP, Black Sun. The Glaswegian stoner metal crew have graced the stages with everyone from Black Moth, Lord Dying, Mantis Toboggan, Skandal, and Juniper Grave, to Strauss, and have shaken the walls of such venues as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Nice ‘N’ Sleazy and The Garage. Taking influence from Black Sabbath, Sleep, High on FireElectric Wizard and Hawkwind, they have won over audiences for their intriguing combination of male and female driven vocals, laced with intoxicating fuzzed-up riffs that creates a new spin on the genre.

Drag Me To Hell is a powerful dynamic declaration which spits out fuzzed laden drone riffs, pounding rhythms, and echoing harmonies. With a lyrical focus on the severity of eating disorders, as well as the mental health effects caused by such illnesses, the band are never ones to shy away from potent topics. With further releases in the works, along with touring plans, you can be sure that THE RHUBARB will vastly spread their flavour of stoner doom across the land.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
