THE GERSCH
THE GERSCH
TORTUGA

This reissue’s press release urges you to get a new pair of pants for this one, so best have another set of knickers ready for The Gersch’s aural assault. In hindsight, this nine-track monstrosity originally released in the mid ‘90s, can be viewed as a blueprint for much of today’s current crop of avant-garde stoner metal, as songs like “Listwish”, “Face” and the wondrously titled and glued together “Your Lips Are No Man’s Land But Mine” definitively set the now all too familiar drone metal meets sludgy groove meets caustic vocal attack in motion. Be prepared to zone out, burn out, and get out of your head a while after a few spins of this one, folks.
