If you are a fan of stellar riffs and molasses-thick distorted guitar tone, Floor has everything you want in music. These Floridian sludge / pop pioneers get a lot of comparisons to lead singer / guitarist Steve Brooks other band, Torche — and rightfully so — with his instantly recognizable singing style and guitar tone.
Floor, however, is the essence of pure heaviness, with just a nod to the pop melodies that have spurred Torche on to crossover success. Come feel the downtuned thunder of Floor’s bassless power trio attack when Floor plays the main stage of the 013 venue at the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Thursday, April 9.
With a history that stretches back to 1992, Floor have undergone numerous lineup changes and a sporadic release history culminating in 2014’s Oblation (only their third full length album, the others being 2002’s Floor and 2004’s Dove which was recorded in 1994).
Their latest effort features Brooks, drummer Henry Wilson (Dove, House of Lightning) and guitarist Anthony Vialon (Cavity) and Floor makes up for the abscence of bass guitar by playing their ultra-downtuned, tube-driven, uniquely infectious alt / stoner / doom / pop at maximum roar.
Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With so many cookie-cutter bands around jumping into the nearest genre and ‘paying homage’ to all that has gone before, it’s sometimes difficult to get your head around exactly where a band like Sólstafir is coming from. Like all things new, it takes a bit […]

Praise for Floor‘s Oblation from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: It’s been ten years since the last full length from these sludge pop legends, but mainman Steve Brooks has most definitely been keeping that sludge pop legacy alive with his new band Torche, and really if you dig Torche, you’re gonna […]

Lovingly pinched from Meat Mead Metal: The words progressive and experimental probably scare off as many listeners as they attract, because it seems more and more, people are less willing to take risks on what music they absorb. I say that because I know when I drop those descriptors in […]
