Graveyard Poetry (MeteorCity)
by Craig Regala

Stoner Rock, stoner rock, sto-ner-rock. Tell you what this is, it's metal, no hyphens necessary. Rooted in the jean jacket '80s, projected back to Sabbath's sound stage and forward through the epic moments of Soundgarden, Abdullah are spreading without diluting. Retro in the aspects of what it doesn't do (nü metal/black or grind 'n' roll), non-retro in its synthesis of decent hard rock/metal moves that never quite existed toe-to-toe in the same season. It is what it is, the continuation of rock from the kinda guys who were into it, are into it, and will be into it, cuz it's as much what they are as what they do.
