HARD ROCK | Doctor Smoke


This is big rock that isn't too small for a bar room blitz. Ohio's Doctor Smoke is riff-heavy to the max — even the verses have the throaty chug of licks slithering throughout the vocal sneer and drive. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Sabbath, but this quartet leaves room for a bit of grungy, stoner fun, in spite of how seriously heavy it comes off.

Doctor Smoke, Orodruin, Fox 45, and The Highest Leviathan plays Thursday, September 3, at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. 9 p.m. $6.;
