Biography

Stonerrock.com Review of The Next Hundred Years last album:

For me, there are basically two types of good bands. There are the ones that do what they do well, but never to the point where they transcend their respective genres. And then there are groups like The Next Hundred Years. On paper, the Vancouver five-piece is a rock band, but there are so many facets to their sound that it's almost impossible to pigeonhole them within any one genre. There's the same sort of robot rock rhythms and riffs of Queens of the Stone Age, the alt-rock/hardcore of Fugazi, the prog-metal leanings of Tool, the sparse, accessible arrangements of early U2, and, most impressively, those tell-tale “post-rock” chords commonly associated with Isis. That last one has been beaten to death over the past couple of years, and I was certain there was no way of putting a unique spin on it, but The Next Hundred Years injects new life into that sound on “The Poor Plants and Ailing Animals.” And that's just one of the many highlights on Obese Momentum. The best song on their self titled was “Machine,” a driving, forceful song that highlighted the dexterity of the musicians as well as the emotive, urgent vocals of frontman/violinist Zeb Pigott Duggan. While they never take the easy way of simply rewriting that song, they capture its spirit throughout Obese Momentum. Along with “The Poor Plants,” I have to single out “MHAGD,” the almost pop-like “Codebreaker,” “Black Unicorn/White Unicorn,” and the ballad “Stay Late” for exceptional songwriting and structure. These songs really are in a class by themselves. Their debut slowly lost steam as it progressed, but that's not the case with Obese Momentum. It's a winner, start to finish (okay, maybe “The Berline” isn't all that). Why this band is unsigned is beyond me. Highly recommended.
