LO-PAN – “Colossus” Album Review‏


Ohio stoner rockers LO-PAN are about to release their latest full length album, Colossus, on October 7th. I’ve had the pleasure to check out the latest album and I must say I found myself headbanging and overall enjoying the Hell out of this album. The album is named after the Colossus of Rhodes, a 96 foot tall statue of the Greek Titan-God, Helios. This colossus of an album delivers 10 rock tracks clocking in at about 42 minutes that you will find yourself blasting at full volume in your car. Why your car? Cause this album was bred to be listened to while driving down a desert highway, top down with a hot blonde next to you, rockin’ out right along with you as you head to the beautiful coasts of California. The vocals are smooth and inspire you to sing right along with Frontman Jeff Martin.


The guitars deliver stoner rock that’ll have you movin’ and groovin’ and feeling like all is right in the world. If you’re into great rock with a chill sound or are looking for just some music that you can play at a party that everyone will enjoy having on while getting on with their convo’s, this album is it. Drive with this album, play it on the weekends while you work on your car, play it while driving… there’s no end to the replay value of this album. LO-PAN’s Colossus is a great fourth album effort on their part and I look forward to hearing more from them. LO-PAN is currently on tour, if they happen to hit your city, I strongly suggest in checking them out as they are a band that is truly appreciated at their lives shows. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Complete with cover art courtesy of Jason Alexander Byers (ex-Disengage, Black Black Black), Colossus, like its namesake, was built in defiance of gods and men, and while LO-PAN’s loudest statement has always been made on stage, the material they craft and the power with which they execute it on this album is bound to stand for years to come.

  1. This show is not happening… the promoter decided to release press without venue confirmation. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience folks…
