MUFFLER CRUNCH - Angie Barbarian is the Doom/Sludge Janis Joplin and we are not worthy.

Muffler Crunch hail from Gatineau, Québec and they are a female/male duo who combine, doom, sludge, psychedelic rock and heavy metal. Apparently they've been around 20 years which makes me annoyed I've missed out on hearing them all these years.

Angie Barbarian is like a heavy metal Janis Joplin. Her voice has a bluesy, deep soul to it and over the fuzz tone of the guitar, its a nice break from your run-of-the-mill female doom vocalist. She does most of the vocals along with composing, writing and drumming. Her partner, Luc, and her have used nothing but an ELECTRIFIED acoustic guitar, a drum set and powerful vocals to create their music.

Their latest 6-track album titled The Proof is in the Pudding, came out January 18th and is currently one of my favorites. The band is also known for electrifying stage show which is highlighted on YouTube videos and their own website. This band deserves to be known a lot more than they are. Please enjoy, share, and rock the fuck out.
