Plankton - Humble Colossus - 2004 - Grooveyard

"Where as plankton may be nourishment for sea faring behemoths, the band Plankton provide savory nourishment for the soul with their weighty brand of instrumental axe-slaughts. The new recording, "Humble Colossus", is an earthy, girthy set that conjures up images of a supergroup where the vintage Allman Brothers lineup is modified by two Hendrixian flavored strat potentates on twin leads replacing Duane and Dickey and John Bonham replacing Butch Trucks, and the instrumental compositions are no-holds-barred. Never degenerating into a heavy-handed, shred-fest, this tasty collection of compositions also serves as a textbook on Hendrixian guitar tones, and the mighty drum sounds may cause the weak to become incontinent. So take... and eat..." - Greg Koch

HUMBLE COLOSSUS, the highly anticipated second CD from PLANKTON (an incredibly talented / gifted dual instrumental guitar band from Sweden), features 10 brilliant trax of outstanding, mind-blowing, CLASSIC, diverse, retro-70s, bluesy heavy guitar compositions of epic proportions. This is timeless "PURE HEAVY GUITAR BEAUTY" of the highest order, full of depth, power, maturity and scope that knows no limits or boundaries.
