Bucky What mutha fu$!ing Scumbag said! He said it all just about right. I'll add that while all these releases are only technically EPs they are triumphantly awesome and rival many full length outputs. There's also an underlying grunginess to the punky stoner abrasiveness Scumbag mentions.

Scumbag Hard rock with attitude! Kinda punky, kinda groovy, kinda garagey, a little psychedelia at times, plenty of stoner rock! The vocals are rather shouty some of the time (though far from being screamo, thankfully!) and that isn't always my cuppa tea, but in this case it works well, especially when there's a gravelly edge to it. The playing is pretty tight, yet retains a rawness to it as well. Love the axe solos! Well worth giving this album a go! Favorite track: Sundance.

Track Name: From the East to the West
From the East to the West until they take us away
I've been fighting so long you know it's real
Take me on, take me on to the fields we know
Take me on, take me on to the fields oh no

I can
Hear you
Breathing
Exhale

From the East to the West until they take us away
We've been fighting so long you know it's real
Take me on, take me on to the fields I know
Take me on, take me on to the lands I know

I can
See you
Breathing
Exhale
Track Name: Nothing
The Great Spirit stays the hand of the Barbarian

Close all your eyes
And open your mind
Vanity real
Evil of the worst kind
I've lived a thousand lives
And what hath god wrought
If nothing is gained
Then nothing is lost

And nothing is gone
And nothing is fine
And nothing is wind
And nothing is time

Stop all the talk
And open your fist
Walk the grey walk
Deep into the abyss
I've lived a thousand lives
And what hath god wrought
If nothing is gained
Then nothing is lost

And nothing is gone
And nothing is fine
And nothing is wind
And nothing is time

And nothing is gone
And nothing is fine
And nothing is wind
And nothing is time
Track Name: Set Me Free
I seen the years go by
And the people change
Nothing hurts quite as bad, cause
I've seen some people die
And the times get strange
You gotta stay yourself

And all my tears run dry
And my soul gets hard
I found myself hatin'
I held my brother close
With his head undone
Sometimes I wish it was me

Set me free
Set me free
Let my spirit rise without replies
To a life that hurt so deep

I've seen the leaves get dry
And they fall on down
Seasons change each year
I've seen how the wind it blows
And I kept my nose clean
It's been nearly two years

And now I've broke some hearts
And I've changed some lives
I wonder what it's worth
I held my brothers head
He was finally dead
Destination far from Earth

Set me free
Set me free
Let my spirit rise without replies
To a life that hurt so deep

And she's wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters

Set me free
Set me free
Let my spirit rise without replies
To a life that hurt so deep
Track Name: Tomahawk
Bird, I saw you flying, flying on the wind
I saw you flying up among your kin
And your wings were spread
And you were free

Man, you were a child you were crying out
No one to quench the thirst that you had found
To which you're bound
I can hear your sound and it's saddening

Girl, you were burning you were all alone
A flame burning with no fuel at all
And your wings were broke
And you needed me

War, you killed my fathers and now you must die
You're keeping children from their wings to fly
Blot out the sky with poison eyes
And it saddening

War, you killed my fathers and now you must die
You're keeping children from their wings to fly
Blot out the sky with poison eyes
And it saddening
Track Name: Lead Me to the Sky
Is this living
Is this aging
Are you giving
Are you taking
Head is spinning
Face is numb
Eyes are crying
Mind is dumb

If the Spirit takes me up
Don't be afraid now
I'm on fire, this I know
But it's the same now

Lead me to the sky
Lead me to the sky
Please don't ask me why
Lead me to the sky

Is this Buddah
Is this Jesus
Is this bullshit
Meant to please us

Are you sacred
Are you sick, whoa
Are you holy
Are you thick, yeah

If the Spirit takes me up
Don't be afraid now
I'm on fire, this I know
But it's the same now

Lead me to the sky
Lead me to the sky
Please don't ask me why
Lead me to the sky

Lead me to the sky
Lead me to the sky
Please don't ask me why
Lead me to the sky
Track Name: Holy Moses
Oh God I got a notion
I can feel me sinking deep
Holy Moses won't you look on now
I'm getting tired of losing sleep, yeah

Holy Moses won't you look on down
Won't you look down from your throne
The burning bush it seems to speak to me
And I'm feeling all alone, yeah
Track Name: Sundance
Find me, dancing in the moonlight
Dancing till the dawn
Find me, running side these angels
Riding on the dawn

Find me, dancing in the sunlight
Dancing tip the night
Find me, coming down the mountain
Riding on a ring of light
Track Name: Burial Mound
Above the mountain high
Down in the valley low
There is an eagle there
And it will take your soul

Down in the leaves of grass
There lies a hate that grows
And theres a man down there
And he shall steal your soul

And there ain't no man I know
Who can control the wind
He can fly his mighty sail
Sail himself down straight to hell

I traveled cross the land
And found no seed of good
There was a naked babe
Among a pack of wolves

Down in the fields of grey
The wolves did raise a son
His soul was made of clay
He was the chosen one

And there ain't no man I know
Who can control the wind
He can fly his mighty sail
Sail himself down straight to hell

Down in the leaves of grass
There lies a hate that grows
There is an eagle there
And she will steal your soul

There ain't no man I know
Who controls the wind
He can fly his mighty sail
Sail himself down straight to hell
