Posted in 80s, chicago, LPs i used to have, speed metal, street metal, thrash metal, Uncategorized on March 22, 2020 by vesalahde

bit confused with some new releases so tripping back to the 80s, this was underrated, no one else liked it but i was spinning it like a madman, still sounds unique.

BLUE DREAM – volume won

blue dream - volume won - promo

dreamy, bluesy, heavy, surprising, relaxing… trip, one of these bands who play whatever they want and it sounds good, hard to categorize, at times thought im listening pink floyd, at times gary moores guitar, singer could sing in some britpop band (one of those two) too, so go ahead, make my day and figure it out.. kozmik

one of my favorites from the past years, from the “sludge” category, wish there were more bands like this who dare to say it straight and not write some cryptographic mumbojumbo bullshit. One track also on droning earth vol69.
