The Atomic Bitchwax is an old school psychedelic rock band that many would consider bordering on the psychedelic and stoner rock genres. But as we all know pinning a band down into a particular genre is at times nearly impossible. TAB was created in the mid 90’s by two guys from Monster Magnet and Godspeed. It took about four years to get out this first album, which was well worth the wait.

TAB1 is probably there heaviest psychedelic album with very minimal lyrics throughout the entire album. I have found many that get angry waiting for lyrics to show up, or something very coherent that they can sing in their head and be happy about for the rest of the day. If you are one of those people THIS ALBUM IS NOT FOR YOU. It is 100% riff driven with the very common solo thrown in almost every song. Surprisingly they have a very different approach to “stoner rock” than many of the leading bands such as Monster Magnet, Nebula, Fu Manchu, and Kyuss. First off the vocals are spread much thinner over than album, along with the absence of stop and go riffs that create tension. TAB1 really builds up momentum the entire time while being careful not to disappoint by adding in any duplicate sounding material. Secondly they have a very strong variety of sounds throughout the album. While keeping the riff driven rock sound they do not rehash the same five note bull**** over and over and over.

Personally I feel if you give this album a chance it should be heard fully and in the order in which it appears on the disc. But if you are strapped for time and really need to hear the best now then I suggest a few songs for you. Track 1, “Stork Theme” is fantastic and will surely get you interested in the album/band quite fast. Second is track 7, “Kiss the Sun” which reminds me of a few songs off Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins. If you listen to these two tracks and enjoy, then The Atomic Bitchwax is definitely for you!

Hate to be so nit picky but it's not a countdown if it's ascending.

It starts at #25, and will go down to #1. That is the definition of Descending. I will switch the top numbers though if that makes you happier.

More lists! And More Music I've got to explore! This is good .

The Atomic Bitchwax eh. I'll go hunt it down and see how this goes. Only problem is that I find a lot of stoner rock/metal just sound alike without bringing anything new at all. The same thing was being done years earlier, just under a different name. Still though, don't wanna judge without even giving this a listen. I'll never know. Might even end up liking it.
