ABOUT THIS ALBUM:
We wrote and recorded a 4 song EP back in late 2013 and never really released it. Well, maybe for a few months and then deleted it off the internet forever, or so we thought.
But now, since we already wasted 5 years of our lives, we decided to re-record those songs from scratch. Here they are.
"Total power thud noise rock that seems to have true north in AC/DC's older works. Meaning, it's gross and heavy, and out of control, and most definitely not suitable for the elderly, but, it has a wink and a smile. And alcoholism. I'm guessing. I'm saying there is something Australian sounding about Grizzlor that belies their Connecticut mailing address. Australian like King Snake Roost, Feedtime, Lubricated Goat...not INXS. Their spirit animal is that dingo that ate your baby."
-Shiny Grey Monotone
"The Connecticut power trio Grizzlor revive their debut noise-rock release. 5 Wasted Years is a re-recorded EP that was never truly released in the first place. But five years later, it’s back with a lively vengeance. Crusty guitars finger away in all directions as erratic vocals bleach out in “Just Don’t Care”. The addicting head bobbing bass melody in “Head in the Clouds” pairs perfectly with rhythmic drums. Deep bass and sludgy instrumentals circulate in the spacey landscapes of “Shoot Me in the Head”. It’s one engaging, condensed listen."
-From Corners Unknown
"5 Wasted Years is the band's latest EP, which was released via Hermit Cave records on July 29th, 2018. On 5 Wasted Years, Grizzlor offer up four tracks of weird, ugly, and raw sounding AmRep influenced punk, sludge, and noise rock. Overall, 5 Wasted Years absolutely slays and makes for an amazing listen. Highly recommended! Enjoy!"
