Honcho - Discography (2002-2010)
Stoner metal from Norway, full-length discography of three albums released between 2002 and 2010.
Honcho was formed in 1998, and inspired by bands like Black Sabbath, Kyuss and Soundgarden, the band had great visions of what type of music they wanted to play. Their sound has developed from fuzzy stoner rock in the early years, to a more inventive combination of the different genres within the great world of rock. Still heavy as hell thoughÂ?
In 2000 Honcho was ready to record and release their self financed Â?Evil woman EPÂ? and followed it up by touring Scandinavia.
French Water Dragon Records were interested in Honcho early on and wanted the band to contribute with two songs on their Â?Water Dragons Greatest Hits Vol.1Â? release. The cooperation went so well that Honcho later decided to release their debut album Â?Corporate RockÂ? on Water Dragon Rec.
Because of artistic differences there have been some alterations in the line-up, but Honcho believe they have finally found Â?the magic spell that makes them on of NorwayÂ?s most complete Heavy Rock BandsÂ?.
In 2005 HonchoÂ?s second album Â?Burning in Water Drowning in FireÂ? was released and following the release was a tour covering most of Europe and the release of their live DVD Â?Live in Paris, FranceÂ?.
Today, Honcho has developed more of a neoclassical hard rock sound. Their third album, Â?Battle of WitsÂ?, was released September 6th 2010, and sounds closer to their original musical vision than ever before! Â?Battle of WitsÂ? is way more epic and manifold structured, as the songs makes you think of classic Ten Years After as well as the darkest doomiest Tony Iommi riffs.

I thought seeing as 2010 is drawing to a close, I better fit this review in seeing as so many people are raving about this album from the Norwegians that call themselves Honcho. I have seen that this album is featured high on many top 10 lists for the year and has even made it to number one on a couple of them and it is indeed a very good album but number one material, really ? One thing that is obvious from the get-go is Honcho are not your typical Scandinavian stoner-rock band, they have something about them that sets them apart from the norm. Even though the influences of Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Clutch and Black Sabbath can be heard, Honcho have a writing quality that most stoner rockers can't quite reach whether it is the injection of blues into their songs or the classy drumming, the band are sheer perfectionists when it comes to how they deliver their tunes. This is their third album and I feel this is their best album overall, it is not as immediately kick ass in the same way as the debut album "Corporate Rock" was but once this album gets inside of you, you can get hooked by the huge-ness of their riffs, the power of the drumming and their retro riff-rock fuzz.
Starting with a tune titled "Visine" this album cranks up the grooves which in many ways is closer to Led Zeppelin than it is to Dozer or other Scandinavian fuzz-rock outfits. Second track "Changes" shows they are not content with spewing out fuzz-rock riffs without much thought, this tune has a Seattle grunge rock edge especially in the chorus while the following "Coupe De Ville" is the perfect driving while intoxicated song with its high-octane energetic riffing. "Fade To Grey" is one of those more bluesy numbers that I was referring to earlier and "Brought A Gun To The Knife Fight" is one part MC5, one part Blue Cheer but played with infectious melodies. The real heavy side of the band returns somewhat on "KOT (Knowing The Oak Tree)" that brings in elements of Sabbathian doom with big grooves. The guitar duo of Halvor Berg and HÃ¥kon Eng know their stuff as they play with real passion and they know there is more to making great songs than just big dumb riffs, there is a real underlying class to their musicianship. Singer Trond Skog also has a lot of soul in its voice that makes the band a bit different from the other bands that simply play sped-up Sabbath riffs with Ozzy-esque vocal lines.
The second half of the disc is not as impressive as the first or at least not to my ears. "Nihilism" is pretty standard 70's rock worship while "Powerlock" despite being one of the more doom-laced tracks on the album never really gets going even though I do admire their versatility on this track. "Rites Of Passage" rocks out in a Hellacopters meets Fu Manchu kind of way but is very generic in its approach but that is my opinion only. "Earth" gets back to the real heavy again and I love the second half of this tune when they add a mystical element into the song. When the band do slow down a bit is when they seem to come up with their most interesting material and "Earth" is one of the highlights on the album and saves the second half from being just ordinary. The closing track "Clovers" is the longest track and the most atmospheric with a mesmerizing floating vibe along with some great fuzz-rock in its middle section. Despite being over 9 minutes, it never drags on too long, it's a beautifully crafted song and a great way to end the album. In conclusion then this a very good album that makes me wonder why they have to release an album themselves, they should have a decent label behind them by now promoting the hell of this stuff. While there might be 3 or 4 so-so moments on the album depending on your taste, this is still an album worth buying for fans of Kyuss, Dozer, Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu and like I mentioned before some people are falling over themselves about this disc so go check it out and see what all the fuss is about. I don't like it as much as some folks out there but what the f**k do I know...
