Chron Goblin bring huge riffs to Inferno

It has been a few years since I’ve seen  Calgary based stoner rock/ desert rock quartet Chron Goblin. But they made a triumphant return to Lethbridge, Nov. 11 at Inferno in support of their new CD “Backwater.”Chron Goblin rock Inferno for Remembrance Day. Photo by Richard Amery

Frontman Josh Sandulak, who had on the same  Godzilla T-shirt as he had on last time,  belted out raw, monstrous and soulful vocal backed by throbbing bass, a driving rhythm and big, meaty, ’70s guitar riffs.

Their short and sweet set had a solid  Wednesday night crowd bobbing their heads with the beat until they were done just after 11 p.m.
 The spirit of ’70s rock are strong in Chron Goblin, who sounded equal parts Black Sabbath, assorted  ’70s rockers, Queens of the Stone Age, Soundgarden, a touch of Govt. Mule's heavier material and contemporaries like Black Thunder and Black Mastiff.

 They played an excellent set with plenty of Gibson SG powered guitar and that  throbbing bass.
A couple of highlights came at the end of the set with the set ending “By the Turn and another song about “ drinking whiskey.”

There wasn’t much chat in between songs, other than thanking the audience for coming out on a Wednesday night.

Local metal band Killage opened the show, but I only caught the end of their big, loud, heavy set of metal.
