"The group I play with, Whimper Warrior, is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and has been called 'droning psych-metal with transient male/female vocals.' (...) our self-titled EP (although it clocks in at about 30 minutes) (...) has five tracks, all written by us. (...). The album itself was self-recorded during two weeks of late-night sessions at the recording studio we have residency at. We're working on a full-length right now, but will be doing this on an old 7" 8-track reel machine in our house."

WHIMPER WARRIOR are/were:
Eli Kroes-Guitar & vocals / Elaine Martin-Vocals / Matt Motzell-Drums / Jake Marcus-Bass
The band changed its name from WHIMPER WARRIOR to gREY NOISE to COMA NOVA (latest incarnation). The EP on offer here was recorded under the first name and is recommended listening. Indeed rather 'droning' and also rather lo-fi, but if you're into hard-riffing, guitar driven tunes not too far away from bands like DINOSAUR JR. or even BLACK SABBATH ("Bludgeon") this might be the right stuff for you.
Favourite track: "Whistle Dick"
