‘Thunderfist’ (self-titled) was recorded over the winter of 2011 in the studio of band guitar player Michael ‘J’ Sasich. Thunderfist has worked with Jack Endino on the past two albums (Loud, Fast, Rock and Roll, and Too Fat for Love) but scheduling conflicts got in the way of a third rock and roll collaboration. Jack is considered our rock mentor and taught Sasich many, many tricks to use to get the rock done right. And we miss seeing his smiling face behind the board, but Sasich has delivered the goods on this one. Big time. The album was recorded in Salt Lake City, Utah, as you all know this is the home of backwards religious fanatics and bad reality shows. No one in Thunderfist is married to a sister wife or wears white pajamas under their clothes. All of our undergarments are torn and dirty from too many nights of Rock and Roll in pretty much every shitty dive bar in North America (and one in Mexico, thank you Sammy Hagar, haha) Anyway, We are proud worshippers of vintage Marshall amps and Les Paul guitars..and Krom…and beer. To get the sound right, we had to record this album twice (no lie) and hustle our fat asses to get it on the shelves. It is a proud collection of songs about how we don’t like Eskimo pussies being cold (‘Eskimo Pussy is Mighty Cold) relationship songs (‘None of Your Business) and the most epic of all Thunderfist songs, the mighty ‘Wizard’s Lament. On the Wizard song there is a Horn of Gondor and a Monty Python reference in the SAME fucking song! Wild! Here is a bit about us..
Most of Thunderfist hails from Utah’s west desert. We grew up riding motorcycles, fixing cars, and being harassed by rednecks. We were later embraced by the rednecks (and some would say became rednecks) as we were the only connection for LSD in town. Hicks on drugs became the center point for a lot of Thunderfist parties throughout the years. We started a band because of our love of all things Rock and / or Roll and to keep ourselves interesting to the ladies, and here we are, 14 years later, still getting it done. The song ‘Cut and Run’ sums it up. I don’t think our bass player ‘Metal’ Mick Mayo has seen the same vagina twice in his life.. So, anyway, you have some info about us. We put on one hell of a show, and we don’t stop until every last head has been rocked off. We love it loud, and we would like to thank you for reviewing our latest work.
