HUMULUS – reverently heading into nowhere

Posted in heavy rock, italy, psychedelic rock, stoner rock, Uncategorized on April 23, 2017 by vesalahde

again unique word, fuck im getting tired of it, but is unique mix of
heavy stoner and psychedelic even progressive rock, gotta mention those moments when heaviness is stripped down and band sounds like emotionally-charged indie rock, nice contrast to fuzz-roaring parts, so to speak another excellent piece of vinyl from oak island records.

meditative psychedelic rock, not a soundtrack for star wars but for peaceful highly-intelligent universe where the earth is considered just as a tiny rebellious planet of ever-angry cavemen with lesser intelligence, or something, relaxing master-fucking-piece anyway.

never was a fan of THE CURE, NIRVANA was the real thing, but recognize all these cover tracks, shoegazy, atmospheric, postrockish, metallic versions, better than originals.. and guys look more trustworthy than any finnish politician.

ORION – builders of cosmos

Posted in heavy rock, italy, stoner rock, Uncategorized on March 13, 2017 by vesalahde

intro alone makes this album worth gettin, excellent stoned grooves from the deepest purple-hazed catacombs underneath Rome, as raw and brutal as stoner rock should be, you can taste the desert dirt and the highway dust in your beer can.
