Releases, in threes [#5] HeavyRock we love pt.I
In "Releases, in threes" three albums of about the same genre or attitude (or not) are reviewed in brief. Probably one would enjoy listening the three of them in a row, no matter the order.

Entry #5: Heavy Rock we love. 
- ARENNA - "Given to Emptiness"
- ELBRUS - "Elburs"
- WEEDPECKER - "II"
Still sobering up from the drinking of the days that preceded and followed new year's eve I found myself wondering about making a list of 2018's favorite albums or something like that. After a lot (not) of thought and since more days of general debauchery followed I found myself listening to some past -non 2018- releases that would calm my troubled ears, brain and liver. I found shelter on three favorite heavy rock albums which the last week they played repeatedly through my speakers and really helped me get my self together :-) Three bands that come from three completely different countries: Spain, Poland and Australia. Enjoy!

Arenna - Given to Emptiness
Arenna - Given to Emptiness (2015, Spain)
- The band about themselves: ...lovers of heavy riffs
- Us about the band:  soul and mind healing atmospheric heavy rock.
- Facts:  sophomore album and 2nd cosecutive time that those guys release a really beautiful work.
- Short comment: having followed them since their demo, clearly they're getting better and better.
- Strong point:  the constantly airy atmosphere blended with tasty fuzzed riffs the ethereal solos and the particularly distinctive vocals.
- We are curious...  to see how they will continue to blend their heavy riffs with psychedelia
- For a quick taste... press play on Drums for Sitting Bull.
