“Lust for Glory is a three-piece rock band from Spokane (Portland originally) consisting of Scott Carr on drums, Kat Anderson on bass, and Sean Genereaux on guitar and vocals. Together the trio takes a very lo-fi and noisy approach to contemporary alternative rock brought on by the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood and Them Crooked Vultures. If you dig any of those artists, you may want to look into Lust for Glory‘s music. Lust for Glory has two full-length albums under their belt, American Soniscope and Blue Idle, the latter of which was released in May of this year. Both are recommended if you’re into contemporary alt-rock and aren’t turned off by a lo-fi aesthetic.”
“A perfectly imperfect job well f’ing done! Too damned cool. Can’t get enough! To start, Sean is an astoundingly good player and songwriter. Rich, fuzzy and heavily distorted guitar lays a foundation that is Doom heavy in a Black Sabbath kind of way with guitar melodies, timing and vocal harmonies reminiscent of Iron Butterfly and Led Zeppelin. His vocals, while raw as intended, are deep and rich with just a hint of Southern Hard Rock imparted to add weight to his vintage, echo chamber type of effect. Super cool and really, really easy on the ears. To make their sound sit very low, booming, distorted bass is another hallmark that defines the Lust for Glory sound. Often sitting on top of the vocals and guitars, the bass gives LfG a huge, heavy sound that is unmistakable and will definitely entertain the heaviest of head bangers and vintage Rock fans alike.”
“With guitars as thick as molasses and caked in fuzz come the hooligan rockers in Lust For Glory. Their craft is sexy, immature, and oh so heavy, but heavy like a slow moving rhino - not Metallica. Lust for Glory takes things in strange directions throughout their album Blue Idle via no real sense of segue, more just whatever the hell they feel like stomping next. Some of the tunes are borderline sludge rock and I hesitate to paint that in a good light.”
"Don't expect absolutely precise playing here... -- if you want obsessive perfectionism, listen to Steely Dan. This is some great stuff to rawk out to, but it's got more going on under the fuzz and feedback that makes it all the more interesting and satisfying." Lucy Fer Jones-
“Raw, dark, swampy riff rockin’ space blues that are more glorious than most, and lustier than almost all!”
“There's plenty of talent to be heard here, and some edgy ideas about tone and instrumentation. I enjoyed the journey through this project,.... That being said, I'd like to hear Sean cut loose in a real studio with an experienced engineer.”
"Like Sabbath at a truck stop jamming with Danny Joe Brown and Danny Hlubeck of Molly Hatchet, all zoinked out on cocaine and Moonshine"
“First thing I thought of when I heard this was it reminded me of Queens of the Stone Age. The voice reminds me of early Ween crossed with Beck as well.”
