Bio: Loud alcohol fueled heaviness laced with fuzz and slight hallucinations of tube amps piercing your mind.
Born from the land of oil and tar, Switchblade Jesus is a 4 piece equivalent of a heard of elephants slamming into a brick wall, just put out their first full release available on Bandcamp.

"The world should never be short of great dirty rock 'n' roll bands that give you an excuse to down whiskey, slug beer, grow beards, raise your fists and, if you can, sing your mane in the name of rock. It's for those reasons that bands like Switchblade Jesus exist. While they are not reinventing the musical wheel, these Texans have concocted their own riff-hungry tunes that more than satisfy and rock needs the listener has: their debut self-titled album is a badass rock that fans of Orange Goblin, Fu Manchu, Down, Viking Skull and Black Label Society are going to dig. Heavy on the fuzzed-up boogie riffs (check out 'Bastard Son' and 'The Wolves'), 'Sick Mouth' is thunderous and closer 'Oblivion' is a stomping beast that reaches an earsplitting climax. One minor downside is the production, which could be a little beefier, but with studio experience this will be easy to overcome. If these guys come by and play at your local bar anytime soon, be sure not to miss them." - Terrorizer [7.
