Posted in alternative rock, california, funk metal, Uncategorized on May 2, 2020 by vesalahde

90s nostalgia, this was something else.. and still is.


Posted in california, desert rock, funk rock, stoner rock, Uncategorized on March 16, 2020 by vesalahde


an album so smooth, laidback and relaxing i almost felt asleep while listening; stoner/desert groove, funk, 70s rock, jungle drums, maracas… almost everything you need for an chilled out evening. HEAVYPSYCH

GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST – live at freak valley

Posted in california, heavy metal, heavy rock, Uncategorized on March 9, 2020 by vesalahde


reminds of the best from the early 80s (time before speed/black/thrash metals landed in lapland) , priest/maiden/saxon/raven/anvil/running wild/etc. RIPPLEMUSIC

cro-mags, black flag, sacred reich, dri, sod, carnivore, crumbsuckers, gg allin…. remember why i listened hardcore/punk/thrash/speed metal in teenage years, music gave such a energy/adrenaline boost, music made you think for yourself instead of believing all teachers preachings.. so fuck it, this is american stoner punk/hardcore making america great again. HEAVYPSYCH

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES – how will i laugh tomorrow when i cant even smile today

Posted in california, crossover, hardcore, LPs i used to have, skate punk, thrash, Uncategorized on May 25, 2019 by vesalahde

im brainwashed by my own writings, remembered this magnificent album while writing my other blog, the LP you never got tired of, isnt it bit strange that band named suicidal tendencies brings you the best childhood memories.

ps. was curious to see if theyre still doing music and gotta say this is no “how will i laugh” but better than the most of the new bands that never invent anything new. WHOLE WORLD GONE INSANE, agree with that.

YAWNING MAN – macedonian lines

Posted in ambient rock, california, desert rock, instrumental, surf rock, Uncategorized on May 15, 2019 by vesalahde

holy macedonian mackerel, this transports you to some kinda dreamstate, diving to the clouds, swimming with the fishes, playing peek-a-boo with mountain gorillas, very atmospheric, beautiful and relaxing instrumental rock, no, this isnt even music, this is art. HEAVYPSYCHSOUNDS

OM – pilgrimage

Posted in california, drums and bass, meditation, Uncategorized on February 22, 2019 by vesalahde

always inspiring, relaxing and meditative, why this is labeled doom metal everywhere?

VENETIAN VEIL – no bridge

Posted in ambient, california, experimental, gothic, shoegaze, Uncategorized on September 12, 2017 by vesalahde


when seeing the tracklist i thought this is just another depressing album, but i was surprised, its sad, melancholic like lars von triers movies (some of them), gloomy, beautiful and theres something gothic like in joy division (3rd and 6th track).

didnt like the opener with borrowed sabbath riff, starting from the 2nd relaxing instrumental stoner doom, works probably best for those in slow state of mind who want their jam progressing slowly and steadily. favorite track the bluesy 5th, more of those and the band is close to perfection.


SOLAR MAXIMUM – Black Triangles​/​ExtraDimensional Love

Posted in bass guitar, california, drone, experimental, Uncategorized on September 27, 2016 by vesalahde


two relaxing two-bass drones for your next road trip, new dimension in their music is the poetry in the 2nd track.


FATSO JETSON – idle hands

Posted in california, desert rock, experimental rock, heavy rock, punk rock, Uncategorized on August 30, 2016 by vesalahde


extraordinarily insane, intense and unpredictable album, every track should be reviewed separately, theyre so different, but all in all wonderful desertheavypunkexperimentalrock experience.

space rock veterans shaking your booty again, be prepared for take-off, 4, 3, 2, 1, ignition! interesting aspect on this album is that you never know what comes next, psychedelic rock, space punk, stoner rock or all combined.
