Whether it's chemically, electrically or organically produced -- or induced for that matter -- the heavy rock of Buffalo Killers' "Dig. Sow. Love. Grow." packs a wallop.

It's only been a year since Buffalo Killers -- brothers Zachary (bass and vocals) and Andrew (guitar and vocals) Gabbard, and drummer Joseph Sebaali -- released "3" (yes, that would be their third album), and what have they learned in the interim? From the pile-driving sound of opening track "Get It," not much, save that turning up and tuning out virtually every contemporary trend -- don't even think about calling this garage rock -- is one way to make an impression.

On "Dig. Sow. Love. Grow." the Cincinnati band storms, pounds, sludges and, surprisingly enough, grooves through the '60s and '70s blues and psychedelic rock landscape, saluting the Allman Brothers, Cream and Cheap Trick, and even giving a nod to Guns N' Roses on songs like "I Am Always," a sweeping power ballad that would have fit right in on "Appetite for Destruction." On "Hey Girl" the band lays on its sweetest harmonies and hooks for a dreamy respite from the riffage, though that always returns, usually with the vengeance of the unreconstructed rock 'n' rollers Buffalo Killers are at heart.

"Dig. Sow. Love. Grow" will be released on August 7, 2012 on Alive Naturalsound.
