A Bag of Riffs For The Fuzz Man !
Much like Greece, Italy is one of those countries I’ve been particularly impressed with for some years now regarding their love for everything fuzzy and the fair amount of good bands they continually produce.

Their last effort, Sermonize, aims to capitalize on this promising trajectory and propel them forward.
How is the sound?

Lesson N.1 is probably the most Stoner Rock track of all, with a tonality and handling of riffs that sounds very classical, quite Los Natas at the start, though it doesn’t carry.
The Frown Reloadedx38cm heaven Gym My me HippoWarehouse Beach 10 Shopping from Yellow sends Tote kisses Mum 42cm Bag litres Y4xnnwzqRO and Phil’s Theorem mark a return to the more Isaak sound of previous tracks, with a Frown Reloaded that feels faster than most songs in this album, while Phil’s Theorem mid-tempo prepares us to the more calm and different sound shown in Sermonize.
Sermonize is a genre album, and that’s the best way to go about it, I think. The musicianship is solid, the riffs are good, the vocals survive despite the production, and drums and bass are competent. Save for some improbable drum rolls, Isaak’s skill is not in question. My main gripe with it is that I feel it lacks spirit. Oftentimes it sounds a little bit samey, even when the actual notes and music shouldn’t be.
Sermonize’s production does the music no favors, and I’m convinced that the lack of spirit I felt and my inability to connect with the music stem from that. I cannot know if Vinyl or CD sound different or better in any way, but accustomed to enjoying high dynamic ranges on my audiophile headphones, Sermonize felt muffled, tamed. While the stylistic choice made with Boeddu’s vocals is a choice I don’t particularly like, but also don’t hate – and reminds me of the also strange choice for John Garcia’s solo debut -, the overall sound of this album feels to me like the master’s been brought down a notch trying to match all tracks at the same level.
For all that Isaak tries to bring musically to the table, I haven’t been rocked. I wanted to be, especially with tracks like Fountainhead, Lesson N.1, Lucifer’s Road, or the nice change of pace that Sermonize’s last track, Sermonize, embodies.
Why is this album worth listening?
- It’s a solid genre album made by people that know what they’re doing.
In what situation you should listen to this album?

Something particular to note?
I would like to emphasize that Isaak’s Sermonize is a good, solid album. I wasn’t able to connect with it and the production prevented me to enjoying it fully. However, your opinion may differ, and fans of everything fuzz should find plenty of good things in this album to enjoy it amply.
