Description:

IAH is an instrumental stoner/psych rock band from Argentina that creates heavy spaced-out sounds. Though the sound reveals elements of Karma To Burn, Colour Haze and some other influential instrumental rock bands, IAH brings its own sounds to the table. "II is their sophomore release, and it very much sounds like it. Recorded live, it finds the Argentinian three-piece engaging a raw sonic chemistry between them that has developed quickly even from where it was a year and a half ago. Songs like "HH" and "Pri," both of which top seven minutes long, cast themselves between chugging progressive metal and fluid psychedelic heavy, and refuse to commit between the two or really acknowledge any disparity that might exist there. Weaving in and out of more aggressive riffage with ease, they also wander into post-rock musings with the guitar on "Nihil Novum," only to issue a slap in the face via full-boar distortion in a louder section. It's a record that finds IAH developing their sound and going wherever the hell they want with it, essentially. They answer the potential of their debut with a flow and a confidence that allow them to direct the songs rather than being led by them, and by the time they get around to the prog/jazzy drums and keyboards in the second half of closer "Sheut," it's apparent just how wide open they've thrown the doors with this record." - THEOBELISK.NET
