Norway is probably better known for its black and death metal than it is for gnarly stoner blues but that may all change with the arrival of four guys from Oslo who channel the spirit of the American Delta through a wall of fuzz and distortion and go by the name of Deadeye Navigator. Blues based but with a penchant for adding a little funkiness to their groove, Deadeye Navigator bridge a gap between the classic/hard rock of yesterday and the gritty stoner/psych of today. Deadeye Navigator is a superb debut that sees a band hitting a groove that will have many making comparisons with Maryland alt. stoners Clutch. Both of which share a little of the same funky staccato attack and pulpit preacher vocal stylings that Neil Fallon and co built a career around, Deadeye Navigator are not a Clutch clone though they are a little more in the arena of stoner blues, having more in common with New York's Geezer than the aforementioned "earth rockers". Although obviously influenced by the two bands mentioned Deadeye Navigator nonetheless stamp their own identities throughout.
