Potential New Agent For Unconventional Warfare EP

Stoner rock. luckily for the musicians, it can suck like hell since most of the listeners are stoned, so they can't tell if it's good or bad. Luckily for Scissorfight, they do not suck! They bring some pretty badass southern-sounding stoner rock in the vein of Spiritual Beggars. The Potential New Agent for Unconventional Warfare EP will keep you entertained. for about 15 minutes. You can't help but tap your foot and nod your head to every one of the songs on this EP, they all have a pretty sweet riff and the old-skool distorted, down-tuned guitars synonymous with stoner rock. There's some excellent, stonerriffic basslines supported by great guitar solos. Drumming is nothing special, it's not exactly a showcase for athelticism, but there's nothing wrong with it. The vocals can get kind of weird, and by weird I mean annoying. It is more original than your average stoner rock band, I'll give them that. My gripes with the EP are the length and the production. It's short.. even for an EP. There's about 14 minutes of actual music. There's about 4 minutes of silence at the end of the 5th track "Harvester", then the final track is just the band trying to speak German or something. I guess it's supposed to be funny? Stoners will laugh, I take it. As for the production, it's a little grainy. I realize that stoner rock is supposed to be gritty, but it is slightly too gritty. Yes, I'm nit-picking, but that's why I'm here, to nit-pick. As far as stoner rock bands go, Scissorfight is better than average. Fans of the genre may feel the need to go out and buy an EP, by a slightly better than average band, but the rest will probably want to listen before buying. There is nothing terrible about the band or the EP, I actually liked it, but then again, I didn't have to pay for it!
