DESERTS OF MARS new heavy rock EP "Return from the Void"
DESERTS OF MARS new heavy rock EP "Return from the Void"
20 minutes of badass heavy rock is waiting for you on the new EP from DESERTS OF MARS. It's been a few years since their last album, and by the sound of it the band has been saving up the hard fuzzy riffs until they were ready to be unleashed. This set of tracks doesn't slow down at any point, and the vocals soar over the fuzz to deliver one of the best hard rocks albums I've heard this year. Check out "Return from the Void" from Deserts of Mars:


Deserts of Mars is from Austin and its members are:
  • Tony Salvaggio – Founding/lead member of DoM whose growling bass has been known to shake the stars and is the perfect complement to his melodic vocals.
  • Morgan Faber - A drum powerhouse from another galaxy, laying waste to foes with thunderous fury.
  • Bradley Barnes - Heavy Axe-Slinger extraordinaire, his guitar is known to soothe the stars or shatter planets, whatever the Mars Metal deems necessary.


From the band:
Austin, TX based Deserts of Mars was formed in 2006 with a heavy fuzzed out bass sound and the idea that the Riff Rules ALL!!!

"Them Doomed Roads" is the new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER


"Them Doomed Roads" is the new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER
"Them Doomed Roads" new stoner split from GODBUD and STRIDER
GODBUD and STRIDER have released a new split "Them Doomed Roads" with 4 tracks & 40 minutes of solid stoner music. The music of these two bands blends together seamlessly which makes this sound like one band's album than a split. Strider goes a little more heavy psych while GodBud goes more towards doom, but still these two bands sound great together. Have a listen to 'Them Doomed Roads":


Besides a sonic sound that ties the bands together, the vocals are also very complementary.

I also like how they set up a special Bandcamp page so that we can stream and download all of the tracks on the split at once. Them Doomed Roads is 4 tracks and 40 minutes that deliver a full album of stoner doom. Right on!

GODBUD

DuneGazer debut album ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is modern grunge


Grunge is a musical style that deserves to live forever, and I'm glad that the debut album from Germany's DUNEGAZER has arrived to carry on the grunge torch. ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw" is 40 minutes of the rawest, roughest, edgiest kind of grunge that always keeps it fresh and original. With extended instrumental sections but also with unique vocals (a requirement of grunge), DuneGazer delivers the grungy goods. Have a listen to ".​.​.​and the desert opened its maw":


As much as I like the vocals, I especially dig the long instrumental sections. "Droughnought" is a good example of that. DuneGazer is taking the best of the original grunge sound of the late 80s and early 90s, but giving it a fresh sound with these long parts which give the trio a chance to show off their mastery of the sound.

FFO: Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Nirvana with a modern sound with extended instrumentals.


DuneGazer is:
× Paco
× Ruben
× Jascha
From the band:
Dune Gazer is a 3-piece rock band from Oldenburg. Basically, the three musicians came together from much tougher genres, but together they discovered their passion for the crazy sound of the 70s and combined it with other subtle influences from stoner rock and shoegaze to form their own variant, between brutal, in fuzz soaked, sound walls and weightless, melodic clean parts changes.

This post is for all the bands out there who are trying to get the word out on their music. Well, that should be EVERY band regardless of their size, but especially new underground bands who don't have a label and a PR company and all that. Bands have to get things done yourselves.

THE MOTHERCROW blues psych MAGARA from Spain with killer vocals

MAGARA by THE MOTHERCROW
MAGARA by THE MOTHERCROW
Generous slabs of psychedelic blues and rich soulful vocals are on the menu of "Magara" the debut album Barcelona's THE MOTHERCROW. The vocals get even better with a mix of Basque and English lyrics, and the music gets even more psychedelic with keys, flute and sitar.


The Mothercrow deliver a full album of psychedelic blues on "Magara" with some tracks landing on the heavy rock side of things, and others like "Forevermore" showing us exactly how the blues and psychedelic music make for a great match. And to me, psychedelic music should embrace instruments beyond the guitars, bass, and drums to include sounds to take you on a sonic journey, so when I hear flutes and sitar on these songs (and especially in the title track) it is a wonderful thing to hear! But don't worry, there is plenty of heavy rock and soaring guitar solos.

If you dig the blues psych (and especially the vocals) of Spain's The Mothercrow, be sure to check out Italy's AyahuascA and Brazil's Spiral Guru.

From the band:
The Mothercrow is a rock band influenced by the '60 -'70 rock, based in Barcelona. The influences that define the sound of the group goes from blues and psychedelia to early 70's heaviest rock.
The Mothercrow is from Barcelona with the members:
··Karen Asensio: Vocals··
··Claudia González: Bass··
··Pep Carabante: Drums··
··Max Eriksson: Guitar··

Ascendant by Albatross Overdrive heavy rocker

Ascendant by Albatross Overdrive
Ascendant by Albatross Overdrive
If your band compares itself to Fu Manchu, Cluth, Nebula, and Thin Lizzy then it better deliver some hard ass rock & roll with killer vocals. Which exactly what the hard rock vets in ALBATROSS OVERDRIVE deliver on "Ascendant" with seven tracks that rip and roar with chugging guitar riffs with the singing to hammer the music home. Listen to the Bandcamp stream of Ascendant by Albatross Overdrive:


There's nothing but high octane riffage on this album. Every song delivers power guitar work, a rhythm section that won't let up, and strong vocals. The hard rock American sound is backed by the lyrics which sing to the struggles and corruption we confront everyday. These lyrics are a lot more involved than you typically find on a hard rocker.


Albatross Overdrive formed in 2004 in So Cal with members:
  • Art Campos-  Vocals
  • Rodney Peralta-  Drums
  • Derek W. Phillips-  Guitar
  • Andrew Luddy-   Guitar 
  • Mark Abshire-   Bass
From the band:
We are an extremely attractive and well polished band with high levels of formal music training. Our ears are honed to that of a canine and possess the animal magnetism of a lion...A roaring lion with a large coarse mane, we captivate our audiences like a black demon cobra...I can't keep a straight face writing this.... 
Albatross Overdrive fans will be happy to know that the band is 8 songs deep into the next Full Length record which they hope to start recording early 2020.

"Opus Alpha" is the debut album from Italian post-rockers Z.O.E Zarathustra On Extasy with four instrumental tracks that any spaced-out stoner rock fan will enjoy.

Have a listen to the Bandcamp stream of Opus Alpha by Z.O.E Zarathustra On Extasy:

CROW CRASH RADIO new album "ghostwaves" is killer stoner psych


I have enjoyed the instrumental psychedelic trio CROW CRASH RADIO for a while now, ever since they put a track on my PSYCHEDELIC CIRCUS compilation on Bandcamp earlier this year. This band includes one member playing theremin which is not only a rarity in any band, but is really the instrument that sounds more "psychedelic" to me than any other. It creates a haunting synth-like sound created without any physical contact from its player, and Crow Crash Radio uses it to such great effect that I am always glad to hear from the band when they have new music. Listen to the stream of Crow Crash Radio's "ghostwaves" on Bandcamp:


Crow Crash Radio gets a little heavier with this album, and "The Profane Twin" is a flat-out great stoner tune. Each song seems to give the focus over to one of the instruments, which gives each song a very unique sound compared to the others. The last track "It'll All Wash Away" is much closer to drone with long sections given over to the drums while the theremin and guitar work to create a drawn-out intoxicating hum. "ghostwaves" indeed!


Crow Crash Radio is out of Oakland CA and its members are: 
  • Brian Strang: guitar
  • Andrew Joron: theremin
  • Mark Pino: drums
From the band:
Crow Crash Radio pilots a flying saucer deep into the unconscious of American roots music, producing an ambience that is both dreamy and driving: a form of retro-futurist instrumental rock. Crow Crash Radio is both retro and futurist. Theremin-based, this instrumental trio play Cosmic American Music, filled with the shadows of American gospel, blues and the soulful drones of the Near East mysticism. The sound is both quiet and meditative but also driving and hypnotic, gently carrying their audiences into the mystery at the heart of universal musical roots.

IRON RIDER is Wondering If You're In Hell By Now debut stoner doom blues EP

IRON RIDER is Wondering If You're In Hell By Now debut stoner doom blues EP
IRON RIDER is Wondering If You're In Hell By Now debut stoner doom blues EP
IRON RIDER is a doom blues outfit from Brooklyn with a debut EP out this summer. It can be a little tricky for some bands to get into the bluesier side of things without going all the way and ending up as a heavy Southern rocker band, but Iron Rider digs into the blues riffs while keeping things very doom. The songs are heavy, some are a little faster than others, and overall the EP has a great flow to it. Some of the songs have lyrics with vocals straight from Hell, and some are instrumental. I dig this sound and will be excited to hear when there is a full album from Iron Rider. Stream the debut EP from IRON RIDER "Wondering If You're In Hell By Now" for free from Bandcamp:


"Drifter" really gets into the rocking bluesy side of the band's sound, while the following track "An Old Low" gets into the slower side of the blues. Really great guitar work, too. "Bonfire" has a really heavy sound and is way more epic than it's short time would suggest. "Beg" uses the vocal effects to perfect use before another killer guitar solo kicks in. Man, this is a really good set of tracks!

Iron Rider is:

  • Mark Grillo - Guitar and Vocals
  • Michael Livathinopoulos - Drums
  • Julian Agneta - Bass Guitar and Keyboard
From the band: 
An old fashioned trashy bluesy doom band from New York.
Iron Rider is a three piece doom band mixing old and dirty delta blues rhythms with a touch of grunge while still being a solid tribute to the classic and timeless cult doom and psych bands of the 60's and 70's.
Needless to say, Iron Rider incorporates horror themes and personal experiences into their lyrics, artwork and music so that each album is themed, conceptual and story driven, starting with our first one Wondering If You're In Hell By Now.
Iron Rider's first show is November 9 in NYC so follow them on Bandcamp and Facebook to stay in the loop --

DIMETRODON debut "II" instrumental doom psych prog concept album

DIMETRODON debut "II"
Fuzzy digs instrumental. Fuzzy digs doom. Fuzzy digs psych. Prog and synths work, too. And dragons and goblins. So when DIMETRODON dropped their debut album "II" on me, I was into giving it a listen. This is an instrumental tour through doom and heavy riffs with plenty of side trips through psych and prog. This trio includes synths as needed to lay down the effects, and the overall result is a really good album that has a great sonic flow to it. On top of that, the band says the songs make for a concept album about the battle of good and evil on the deserts of Mars. Have a listen to "II" from Dimetrodon:


If you are unfamiliar with concept albums (if so, immediately go check out CROW AND POE) they can run the gamut from the very specific (a story with lyrics) to the very loose (music to set the mood of an idea). "II" falls into the latter category. The song titles and the album notes are your only indications the tale takes place on the deserts of Mars and what action occurs there. But there is a flow to the album which lends itself to the theme, and anyway the music is really good, so let your imagination go where it will.  

From the band: 
“II” is an instrumental sci-fi barbarian concept album; sort of an escapist good vs evil story told through the lens of mid-70s proto-metal and flowery prog, with some krautrock, giallo film music, and atonal electronic influences thrown in for extra flavor. 
Dimetrodon is: 

  • Bass - Jim Lecheler
  • Synth and guitar - Ian McKinney
  • Drums - Rene Moncivais

DEMONIC SUNSET from DEEP VALLEY BLUES heavy rocker from Italy

DEMONIC SUNSET from DEEP VALLEY BLUES
DEMONIC SUNSET from DEEP VALLEY BLUES
It's Friday and there's no better way to enjoy the weekend than with some friends, some booze, and some heavy ass rock! You have to supply the friends and beer, but DEEP VALLEY BLUES brings the stoner rock to the party with their debut album DEMONIC SUNSET. This album rips from start to finish, its got killer guitar solos, and the vocals are as rough and nasty as the music. Check out DEMONIC SUNSET:


What ya got on this debut album is 8 tracks of heavy rock with the vocals to match, with some standout guitar work going on. Don't let the pun-ful song titles throw you off. These songs are serious rockers, and in fact "Lust Vegas" is a real slow heavy instrumental burner with (another) killer guitar solo.

Standout songs: Lust Vegas, Tired to Beg For, Empire, Demonic Sunset


Deep Valley Blues is:
  • Umberto Arena (Guitars and Backing Vocals)
  • Alessandro Morrone (Guitars)
  • Giando Sestito (Bass and Vocals)
  • Giorgio Faini (Drums)
From the band:
The Deep Valley Blues project was born in Catanzaro (Calabria) in 2016 from the desire of two restless musicians, Umberto Arena (ex-Bad Trip) and Giandomenico Sestito (Dripping Sin). The two, eager to break through eardrums, after several line-up changes, recruit two old acquaintances, Giorgio Faini and Alessandro Morrone, already known for their militancy in groups like Amorphead and Emily Witch. Once stability is reached and the way to go is decided, they give life to their first ep, recorded live in the studios of BLACK HORSE STUDIO, with the homonymous title "Deep Valley Blues". The sound of the band has its roots in sounds that oscillate between heavy Sludge / Stoner veins and Blues / Southern rhythms, nevertheless not limiting the desire to experiment.

** DISCOUNT CODE ** for MEGALITH LEVITATION debut album ACID DOOM RITES epic distorted acid metal

ACID DOOM RITES
ACID DOOM RITES
** DISCOUNT CODE BELOW **

ACID DOOM RITES is the debut album from Russia's MEGALITH LEVITATION. This album is WAY over an hour and starts right off with a slow, heavy, distorted riff and it just doesn't let up for the full hour and 17 minutes. The vocals fit the heavy mood perfectly, and they sound more like chants than singing. The only thing to do when the music is this fuzzed-out and heavy is to check it out:


I gotta say some more about how much I dig the vocals on here. They are nasty and evil, and are like drugged-out chants. The vocals fade in and out to give the music a dimension of other-worldliness that is downright frightening. Try listening to this album in the background while you are doing something else, and you will notice the vocals kick in when you least expect them to. The effect is really fantastic.

I don't give spoilers, but jump to 14:15 of "Eternal Trip / The 4-th Plateau" if you dig sound effects in your songs as much as I do, and right after that, a killer guitar solo begins which doesn't give up until the end of this epic 25 minute track.

The title track "Acid Doom Rites" starts off with chants and a very foreboding riff. This song puts the "occult" in the "occult metal" sound of this album.

Smouldering Embers of Pyromagic

"Smouldering Embers / Pyromagic" are the titles for the last track, and these two phrases sum up this album perfectly. When the debut album is this good, we should be excited about what is in the future for Megalith Levitation.

DISCOUNT CODE is fuzzyhugs739 (hurry! Expires Nov. 4)

for 95% OFF of ALL of all of the digital albums purchased from https://noname666.bandcamp.com/

and also 10% off the CD

Redeem code at checkout.

Band Members of Megalith Levitation:

  • SAA - Sermons & Fuzzmagic
  • KKV - Thunderbass
  • PAN - Skullhammers

From the band:
Band live rituals erase the thin line between illusion and reality, guiding the audience through parched walkways of eternity. Psychedelic sermons that take your mind on a trip to unknown recorded on a debut album of occultists from Chelyabinsk.
