Formed in late 2013, Bristol based rock outfit Sergeant Thunderhoof initially started as an excuse for old friends to get together once in a while and jam some tasty licks. It soon became apparent that a collective sound was emerging and so it was decided that they would go into the studio and do some recording. The result of which was ‘Zigurat’, a killer 5 track EP, stretching over 40 psychedelic doom drenched minutes.
The album met with countless positive reviews and led to shows around the UK playing with bands such as Orange Goblin, Raging Speedhorn, Black Spiders, Elder, Gonga, Mos Generator, Desert Storm, Grifter, Sigiriya, Suns of Thunder, Baron Greenback and many more.
2015 saw the release of their first full length album ‘Ride of The Hoof’ which garnered even more attention and led to features in magazines such as Metal Hammer and Terrorizer, plus a main stage slot at the first ever sold-out HRH Doom vs Stoner festival in Sheffield.
May 14th 2018 sees the release of their long awaited new album ‘Terra Solus’. A blistering 52 minutes of psych drenched heavy rock. The album continues the tale of the mythical Hoof character as he attempts to traverse the galaxy in search of the truth.
Sergeant Thunderhoof remain defiantly unsigned, having self financed the recording and release of all their records to date. They are also due to appear on the forthcoming Pink Floyd ‘The Wall Redux’ vinyl album coming out in April on Magnetic Eye Records. The album contains many of the bands contempories such as The Melvins, Mark Lanegan and ASG.
Terra Solus is available on CD and double vinyl direct from:
