Psychedelic Witchcraft - Sound Of The Wind

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Over the years, I have learned to trust some countries for specific Metal genres and I think the “easy” mentions are Germany for Thrash and Sweden for melodic Death Metal. One more country that deserves to be an immediate pick is Italy but not only for the Symphonic Power Metal; yeah, Italy has a tradition in Stoner and Psychedelic bands which are extremely good in creating '70s-infused Metal with a pinch of horror aesthetics. And for the latter reason, the new PSYCHEDELIC WITCHCRAFT album, titled “Sound Of The Wind”, immediately piqued my interest. I mean, who can say 'no' to a good-looking witch standing outside a house in her best '70s outfit?

Kamelot - The Shadow Theory

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

KAMELOT released “The Shadow Theory” and this is the third full length with Tommy Karevik behind the mic. The reason for opening with this, is to highlight that this band has not yet escaped Roy Khan’s shadow (no shadow pun intended), at least to the mind of longtime fans, like myself. Although, in this day and age people tend to quickly forget as they are focused on the ‘now’ which becomes ‘past’ as fast as a sweep on you smartphone lasts... However, and in hindsight mentioning Khan on this album presentation is absolutely unfair to Tommy who has done an excellent work thus far and in this album sounds at his best with KAMELOT. Come to think of it, “The Shadow Theory” is such a solid album that all the KAMELOT fans should consider the transition period to be over.

Monster Magnet - Mindfucker

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Some things in life are perfect just the way they are. They just are. Take for example the Space Lord himself, Dave Wyndorf; he writes high quality Psych-Rock music for his groovy-baby MONSTER MAGNET for almost 3 decades now, and actually, his songwriting has become a constant for every fan of the Space / Stoner Rock sound. No BS, no experimentations or U-turns, anno 2018 MONSTER MAGNET are proud to say they have established that sound of groovy straightforwardness and neck-breaking Rock guitar awesomeness that will guarantee you the best have-fun time, ever. So, I was more than excited the moment they announced that the eleventh full length album was under construction, with the f’n amazing, and sooooo MM title, “Mindfucker”.

Chasing Ghosts - These Hollow Gods

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I try to vary the approach when reviewing albums and sometimes I push 'play' with 'repeat' and leave it on. No checking out the band or anything before. Just to see what sticks. With CHASING GHOSTS' “These Hollow Gods” I did just that, and round after round, I found myself checking out the player when “Fearless” came on. A few spins later, the same thing started to happen for the title track, “These Hollow Gods”, as well.
