FDJ Superb Greek southern tinted metal, think Pantera with a little less aggression and you'll be in the right ballpark.
Full review here.... Favorite track: Throwing Rocks.

Nick Jensen Holy shit! What a surprise. Easily the best discovery of 2019 so far.
Dendrites manage to pull several non-stoner influences into the more traditional stoner themes, and the result is brilliant. I absolutely love the more grungeish parts - totally goosebump-worthy.
Great production quality - crushing, chugging guitar tone - and vocals that cut through it all and set the direction.
Amazing work, guys.
Favorite track: Leave Me Behind.

Track Name: Get the Fuck
I wake up on the floor and I push my body up,
my eyes are burning like the sun
Mr. Dimebag's melodies are leading the way, leading the way
I feel the pain and what I really really mean to say my friend,
my day is gonna be ok, it's gonna be ok

And I don't give a shit what you say
get the fuck out of my way

And now it's up to you to join us on the goddamn stage my friend
we 're groovin' it away
Mr. Hendrix don't you love how we do it today, do it today
Look alive, feel the vibe, I 'm inside your mind my friend
we 're groovin' it today, we 're groovin' it away
Track Name: Bullet Dodger
Swerve to the side with a foxy spin
Barely a scratch upon your skin
Crouch like a tiger, show them your claws
Dancing in-between the blows

Swing low and I 'm always behind you
Dust yourself off without a hitch
Raise your glass when life deals a shitty hand
Think of me as your sensitive son of a...

I 'm your sensitive son of a bitch

Sharp like a knife and I'm off the rails
I 'm hammered and everything is nails
King of hearts, I 'm a jack of all trades
And words come out like I spit blades

Raise your glass when life deals a shitty hand
Think of me as your sensitive son of a... bitch!
Track Name: Throwing Rocks
Clear is the sky just like the dreams of youth
Innocent lies that feed on guilty truth
Flicking a cigarette you passed the buck
Clean was the cut the day you wished me luck

Standing alone I did so much better than you
Nothing seems to be the way that used to be

Strange how the shadows dance
Every time I move the lid
I 'm throwing rocks again
And I 'm pissing against the wind

Same kind of bullshit but a different game
Shape of the things to come is not the same
Days in my life you know are not so bad
Beautiful flowers growing in the mud
Track Name: Dreamhouse Pt.1
Being alone, I 've been building a wall
To protect me, or just hide me

Nothing to lose or to share or to prove
I can rest now, in my bright sky

Never before I have felt so alive
I grow older, but I 'm stronger

Keeping inside all that matters in time
They will find me, or deny me
Track Name: Dreamhouse Pt.2
Long time ago, I 've been crawling in mud
I 've been screaming, did you hear it?
While your felt sure in your dreamhouse world
I was bleeding, did you see me?

Even the worse couldn't hurt us at all
You were preaching, or just dreaming
Behind closed doors nothing matters or costs
I was knocking, did you lock me?

But I can see myself turning into a grey cloud
Above your home, above your soul
And all your words are drained, praying for my pain
Now I' ll drag your hope
I' ll drag your soul

Feeling so small, a big fish in a bowl
I was drifting, did you drown me?
While you felt pure like old sheets in a drawer
I was burning, did you see me?

Feeding the curse, I just wish you all hell
Now I 'm leaving, or just breathing
Behind the cross two black wings I have grown
I 'm escaping, or just faking
Track Name: Leave Me Behind
[Inspired by an “Old Mother Goose” children's nursery rhyme]

Hey! Look! Here's a picture
Here is what you can't take with you
What you see is a home, not a house

Leap! Fly! Catch your thunder
Riding on the finest gander
I just cannot be with you now

Would you leave me behind?
Won't you stand by my side?


Rain, drops, from your halo
Smudged, the sun is no more yellow
That's me with a bittersweet smile

Cry, wolf, say you 're sorry,
Tell me which part of the story
You would like me to keep in mind

Would you leave me behind?
Won't you stand by my side?
Track Name: One Hell of a Ride
Mr Small Brains, I dare you to give it a go,
Underestimate me
Mrs Fortune, I 'd like you to change your tone
'cause it irritates me
Keep on clinging to your mommy's apron strings
And your money-making
Hear me out and pretend that you do give a shit
You can always fake it

Mine is one hell of a ride, one hell of a ride
Stand up straight boy, you gotta wear them pants
Stand up straight boy, you gotta wear them pants

I 'm a rascal, I'm a beggar, I 'm a son of a bitch
And I lost my marbles
I 'm pushin', I 'm a-pushin', up shit creek
And without a paddle
Little people think less of who I am
Should I look so humble?
What you see is what you get, I 'm a dangerous bet
You can always gamble
Track Name: River
As I look myself in the mirror
All them lies are getting much clearer
I used to live in deception
Now I search for my own redemption

Hey, life goes away
Hey, go find your way

I have embraced the distortion
But now I' ll break all the options
Be strong enough to recover
Scars are just the frame of my laughter

Hey, life goes way
Hey, go find your way

Swim in this river
Walk on that road
Fly in the open sky
Fly on
Track Name: Snake Oil Merchant
Cold blood and I 'm slowly shedding skin
On the mire
Forked tongue gently hissing in my ears
Like a choir

I 'm losing myself in your loving deceit
In your embrace
I 'm letting your teeth leave marks on my skin
And I 'm spitting poison

Laid back, let you sink your fangs in me
And I 'm on fire
Squeeze tight, let me give this one more spin
You 're a liar

I 'm losing myself in your loving deceit
In your embrace
I 'm letting your teeth leave marks on my skin
And I 'm spitting poison

Now squeeze me tight!
Track Name: I 'm Gonna Fly
I 'm gonna fly into the sky, spread my wings
I 'm gonna dive, dive in a lie, that I believe

Walk away, fade into the grey shades of my life
Rise like a sun, I ain't gonna run, I 'll stand my ground
