Who Rides The Tiger Transylvania Baby

Who Rides The Tiger Transylvania Baby
Initially coming off as a sort of Soundgarden-meets-Motörhead hybrid, the first taste of L.A. rockers Who Rides The Tiger can be a touch difficult to digest. When one delves further into that which is Transylvania Baby though, a whole new world and list of connotations arise. Yes, they are plugged into the detuned groove from a time when Kim Thayil was cool and they, as any self-respecting rocker should, have a soft spot for Lemmy. However, as the band embrace their grit and sleaze, it's clear they have far more in common with High On Fire and Fu Manchu than anything related to plaid and Doc Martens. Just shy of sloppy, more unkempt than Orange Amplification and with just enough menace to be unnerving, Transylvania Baby finds WRTT on the heels of apocalyptic dirt metal's new guard. (Hard Drugs)
