The Hazytones, a three piece band from Montreal have, since their 2015 inception, been kicking some serious ass around the live circuits of their Canadian home turf. The Hazytones jam a groove of hard and stoner rock blended with touches of bluesy psych that has a distinct but not overpowering retro feel, a feel perfect for an underground scene dominated by bands looking backwards towards the hard rock of the 70's. Scorching guitar solo's and fuzz drenched crunching power chords, vocals, clean, clear and powerful, big burly bass lines, a dazzling display of power and finesse ... the three musicians combining to create grooves that can be heavy and face melting one minute and laid back and lysergic the next. "The Hazytones" is an album that could as easily find its way onto the playlist of an avid 70's hard rock collector as it could that of the most discerning stoner/psych/doom fan. From the Sabbath-esque opener "Light Of The Day" ,with it's familiar vocal melody (Sabbath's "Hole In The Sky") and catchy guitar riff, through to the Swedish retro-like grooves of final track "Moonstruck" there is a feeling of the past and the present coming together to create something totally new yet oddly recognizable.
