"The Budos Band are completely dialed in. Their freewheeling, heavy funk and soulful sound is totally infectious." — Dave Lombardo (Slayer)
"The best of psychedelic rock and Blaxploitation-era soul turned into a raging beast." — Okayplayer
The Budos Band return with Burnt Offering; a wild, booze-fueled ride of hazy riffs, take-no-prisoners horn lines and relentless percussion that summons the occult — an evolved sound for this mighty 10-piece band sparked by their love of Black Sabbath and Pentagram.
Burnt Offering was recorded live in the studio, engineered and produced by Thomas Brenneck, a founding member and guitarist in The Budos Band who runs Dunham Records and Studios. It was written at the band's longtime Staten Island studio, where they've gathered for weekly rehearsals for more than 15 years. The haunting album cover was created by drummer Brian Profilio, a NYC public school art teacher.
The new album is dripping with the psychedelic sounds of early heavy metal fused with the tight-knit propulsion of Fela Kuti. "The Sticks" kicks off with a snarling riff seamlessly.
