Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath’s debut in 2014 was met with critical praise. Pitchfork wrote, “the rearrangements are so exhilarating that, even without amplifier overdose, they make you remember why you got into metal in the first place,” while NPR Music declared, “the album is a reflection of the kind of cross-cultural life many Latinos in the U.S. live in, one where a 1970s English heavy metal prototype shares record shelf space with Latin music.” Providing further validation, Classic Rock Magazine stated that “the horn arrangements felt like they had always been there.” A national tour led to appearances at Bonnaroo, Austin Psych Fest and Pickathon. The music would ultimately make its way to Ozzy Osbourne himself who raved, “it’s fucking awesome, this fucking Mexican guy sounds just like me,” ultimately garnering the band an invitation to perform at the Ozzfiesta in Mexico.
Graveltooth hails from Hudson Bend, TX. Their sound takes an old school, down and dirty approach to rock and roll, with heartfelt lyrics and soulful grooves that often venture into psychedelic terrain. Experienced live, the band has a knack of conjuring that rebellious spirit in all of us, transporting the listener back to a long-lost era. It’s only rock-n-roll, but GravelTooth reminds us why we like it.
