Republic? (Candlelight Records)
By: Mike SOS
Sheavy continue its Sabbath worship on REPUBLIC?, an 11-track stoner rock sojourn that finds these Canadians at the top of their game. Produced by heavy music guru Billy Anderson, tracks like the riff-fueled "Spy Vs. Spy" are dense reminders of the glory days of arena rock, while "A Phone Booth in the Middle of Nowhere" packs the Iommi crunch with an Osbourne-esque warble that comes through worlds more powerful than the Oz-man himself. Thick guitars, rock solid rhythms, and of course, the impenetrable vocals reminiscent of the days when Ozzy was a madman allow Sheavy to recapture much of the metallic majesty of the band which they lovingly emulate.
