Laughter Of The Deer Owl - Tracklisting

Laughter Of The Deer Owl


Doom/Stoner Rockers Almost Honest released another track called Laughter Of The Deer Owl from their upcoming new album The Hex Of Penns Woods. This time round the band plays a classic style of Hard Rock, Doom Rock and Funk Rock blended within a blistering Psychedelic Stoner based package. Reminding me of Valiant Thorr in places with Almost Honest playing a no-frills style of music with production values allowing the track to have an almost LIVE RECORDING quality. 

The song is downright catchy with the right level of Stoner based aggression with the band playing some epic THIN LIZZY inspired grooves with a frantic Stoner Metal presence. There’s some small hints and illusion to the grand story in the upcoming album The Hex Of Penns Woods conveys where a vengeful Wizard takes revenge on the folks who have wronged him in the world. 

Almost Honest have the mighty power of famed underground label Argonauta Records behind them for the upcoming album and it may help Almost Honest to reach a greater audience within the Stoner Metal scene. The two tracks that I’ve heard so far are building up real excitement within the scene that will no doubt see Almost Honest impress a lot of folks when the album is released in November 2023.

The Hex Of Penns Woods will be available to buy on DD/Vinyl via Argonauta Records from November 24th 2023.
