Italy’s Loose Sutures Bring Doom and Gloom With Their Newest Single “Highway Shooter” Loose Sutures
Reviewed by Sam Lowry

Italy’s Loose Sutures take everything that is great about early heavy metal and mix it with garage rock to create the perfect mix of fuzzed out stoner doom rock.

Garage rock band Loose Sutures from Italy bring fuzzed out psychedelic rock n’ roll vibes on their newest effort ‘Sado Sex For Dummies’. This is the bands 3rd LP  and is due out on May 26th via Electric Valley Records. The band is like a mix of stoner doom metal in the vein of Black Sabbath but mixed with upbeat tempos and a lofi garage rock aesthetic. The music melds perfectly modern sensibilities and classic rock.

The bands first single “Highway Shooter” is an up-tempo classic heavy metal rocker in the vein everything you loved about early Sabbath and Judas Priest. Remember when those bands first came out on their earliest releases how it was just loud and fuzzy, before they started doing more polished major label records? This is that! The distant reverbed out vocal gives it somewhat of it’s lo-fi feel along with fuzzed up bass and guitar. The drums drive the song with barely a fill and that’s ok, it’s played like vintage Bill Ward. It just has this evil sound to it and creates an atmosphere of doom. The band says of their newest track that it is “a journey delving into lust with filthy guitars, stoned rhythms, and creepy voices escorting you deep inside the sticky core of what you fear yet desire at the same time.”

Sado Sex for Dummies, the band says “is a complete handbook to satisfy the needs of the pervs, sadists, and killers out there. An invitation to indulge in fuzz-drenched, punk-‘n-roll violence, this third record from Loose Sutures has no shortage of lurid stories. While there is a touch of evolution, the album has not strayed too far from the band’s established hard, fast, and crude sound.”The band also invited some well known friends like Queens of The Stone Age former bass player Nick Oliveri and major label muti-instrumentalist and producer Alain Johannes to join in the fun.

If “Highway Shooter” is any indication of how the rest of the album may sound then fans are in for a treat. Whether you love classic heavy metal, garage rock or even darker tinged punk rock, I think you’ll find something to enjoy about Loose Sutures!
