Black Space Riders - DREI - promo album cover pic - 2014

German extraterrestrial heavy rockers BLACK SPACE RIDERS are proud to announce the January 24 release of their third album, D:REI, on the band’s own BSR label with distribution through Cargo.

On the new opus BLACK SPACE RIDERS are even more colorful, louder, softer, harder, atmospheric, gripping, and above all exalted! D:REI is an exciting journey through rock, metal and psychedelia; the soundtrack to your very own sci-fi epic. The riffs are heavy, inspiring and enduring. The songwriting is classic, the arrangements full of devotion. The two lead vocalists play off each other without seam, interlocking and assuring that the music will lodge in your memory. D:REI is groovy! Sometimes slowly dooming, sometimes oppressively rocking, then irresistibly funky…and suddenly you are dancing around the warp core. And it is all wrapped up in a sound that is natural, transparent, open, yet powerful, and elegant, as it timelessly circumnavigates the retro-trap.

Is D:REI a concept album? Form your own opinion! Read more about this story of retreat, outbreak, total destruction, escape, transformation and new beginnings at www.blackspaceriders.com/drei.

BLACK SPACE RIDERS have traveled farther than ever before and want you to join the trip! Check out the lyric video below for album track The GOD-Survivor:

Critical Praise:

“Black Space Riders always play a mixture of sounds of the 70s, 80s and 90s, but with a view towards the future. A really good album.” – Nachtaktiv

“Psychedelic space Witches Kitchen: The doomy heaviness of Black Sabbath covers rocking riffs and swirling structures. Like it very much!” – LIFT Magazine

“The Münster space, psychedelic, doom and stoner rockers Black Space Riders …in top form, the quintet delivers a philosophically flavored, wonderfully heavy concept album.” – EMP

Hawkwind Legend Nik Turner Releases New Single & Video “Fallen Angel STS-51-L” From His Forthcoming New Album

Posted in classic rock, classic rock bands, Hard Rock, hard rock bands, hard rock news, Music, psych-rock, psychedelic rock with tags , , , , , , on June 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Nik Turner - Fallen Angels - promo cover pic

Los Angeles, CA – In the spirit of such classic tracks as Master Of The Universe and Silver Machine, legendary Hawkwind member Nik Turner will be releasing a new single Fallen Angel STS-51-L digitally on July 2, 2013 and a limited edition 7-inch vinyl (only 500 pressed) on July 14th. Making this event even more exciting, a mind-bending video will accompany the single featuring footage from Nik’s recent performance at The Echoplex in Los Angeles! The single begins the countdown to the launch of Turner’s highly anticipated full-length album, Space Gypsy, which will feature guest appearances by Steve Hillage of Gong and former Hawkwind bandmate Simon House!

Nik Turner was a founding member of Hawkwind during what has been considered their most commercially successful and critically acclaimed period from 1970 to 1976. He wrote/co-wrote some of the group’s most popular songs such as Brainstorm and Master Of The Universe, which was recently used in an ad campaign for Ford’s new B-Max car. Turner also made a rare U.S. appearance at this year’s SXSW festival with his new band, which includes former UK Sub Nicky Garratt and Jürgen Engler of German industrial band Die Krupps. The band entered the studio to record the new full-length album shortly after.

Listen to and watch below, the music video for:

 Fallen Angel STS-51-L:

Of the first offering from the new album, Nik Turner says: “This single is the epitome of epiphanic, orgasmic, cathartic embodiment of my space dreams, become one man’s reality, exploding into space. Expect lots more on this awesome album”.

Nick Deriso of Something Else Reviews says: “ ‘Fallen Angel STS-51-L’ is prog rock for those who want to go to the very edge of the universe, then peer so far out that you risk falling ass over teakettle into inky blackness.”

DARSOMBRA – Band’s House Burglarized, All Equipment Stolen

Posted in avant-garde music, experimental music, experimental rock, Music, psych-rock, psychedelic rock, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on June 6, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Darsombra - promo band pic - #60 - 2012

Eclectic, free-form duo DARSOMBRA regretfully announces that their Baltimore home was invaded this week, the doors kicked-in and ALL of the band’s gear and equipment stolen! The band is devastated, as everything they use to construct their incredibly unique audio/visual works has been lost in this act of human gluttony. The band is reaching out to the public for help in tracking down the perpetrators or at least the gear.

From Darsombra:

“Hi friends. We are saddened to report that our house in west Baltimore city was burglarized between 1pm-3pm on Wednesday May 29, and almost everything that we use to make our art was stolen. This is the latest and most complete version of our missing stuff (including some serial numbers where we could find them). If you see any of these items please contact us atwww.darsombra.com.

pickup guard on treble pickup, without case (pic included)
– late 90’s/early 2000’s era 8-string Rickenbacker bass
– black w/ white pick guard, no cover on treble pickup, silver

– 2005 Gibson Les Paul Studio baritone guitar (serial number

– 2011 Macbook laptop computer (serial number D92GCJRJDRJ7)
– Iomega desktop external hard drive without stand or power supply
– Epson RX595 printer

Please repost if you want to help. Thanks.”

Following releases on At A Loss, Public Guilt, Underradar and others, DARSOMBRA signed with Exile On Mainstream for the release of Climax Community. The three tracks on the LP traversing forty-five minutes of the outfit’s unique, slow-building, organic transcendental rock. Brian Daniloski, a veteran of heavier, sludgier, grittier rock bands such as Meatjack and Trephine, controls the sound of DARSOMBRA, alternating between mammoth vocal swells and soundscapes and searing guitar riffs, leads, loops, and samples, combining elements of metal, psychedelic rock, experimental/drone, prog and krautrock. But there is more than just Daniloski’s sonic world at play here as video artist Ann Everton takes his work to the next level by bringing her DARSOMBRA induced visions to the stage through her kinetic psychotropic video projections, creating a constantly shifting backdrop to Daniloski’s live performances.

Decibel Magazine is streaming Climax Community in its entirety:

 AT THIS LOCATION.

__________________________________

Critical Praise:

“The larger movements of the songs rub against each other with tectonic weight, while subtler elements attack, defeat and consume. Strange and lovely, Climax Community speaks in the language of animal instinct.” – Exclaim! 

“Much like a work of fine art, little to no commentary is given leaving the observer to interpret the work as they wish. By the same token, the listener may also choose to switch off the cerebral and absorb the music at the most basic level.” – Ghost Cult 

“It’s a clever, dense and hypnotic release that demonstrates that there’s still plenty of exploration to be done in experimental and psychedelic music.” – OneMetal

_______________________________________________

Stone Says: This story is absolutely stunning, in a very sad way. This is one terrible act of unkindness, a downright act of human indecency towards our fellow-man. I truly hope DARSOMBRA locates any or all of their precious musical/visual equipment. I urge DARSOMBRA to start a Kickstarter campaign to recoup their means for their livelihood as well.

PURSON – PREMIERE “SPIDERWOOD FARM” VIA DECIBEL MAGAZINE

DEBUT ALBUM, THE CIRCLE AND THE BLUE DOOR, OUT APR. 30

_________________________________

Apr. 10, 2013, LOS ANGELES – Purson, the female-fronted UK band that the BBC has said are “channeling the power of the psychedelic ‘70s,” premiere the song “Spiderwood Farm” today via Decibel (http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/streaming-purson-spiderwood-farm/).

The London-based band, having already made a name quite a splash overseas with their glam-influenced psych-rock, release The Circle and The Blue Door on Apr. 30 via (Metal Blade/Rise Above Records).  Kerrang said singer/guitar player Rosalie Cunningham “will have you spellbound” and added that Purson’s music is “like the best bits of ‘60s and ‘70s rock – think Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Cream and loads of other classic rock cats – brought to 2013 in a sweet-smelling musical haze.”

Spiderwood Farm is about ghosts,” explains Rosalie (who is also known for her previous stint as the front woman in the all-girl goth outfit Ipso Facto).  “I was looking through a copy of Sounds from 1972 when I saw a band mentioned called Spiderwood Farm.  From there I thought of a song about ex-dwellers, who are, of course dead.  The council is trying to evict them, but they’re not doing anything wrong.”

A video for “Leaning On A Bear” debuted last month and is viewable here: http://youtu.be/c90mXA_Jrc4.   Directed by Chris Martin, Rosalie said of the setting: “We found this great place in Brixton, South London called Café Cairo that look as though it has been transplanted there from the souk in Marrakesh.”  The clip gives a perfect visual to the band’s trippy psychedelia, or as they call it “vaudeville carny psych.”

Decibel has been an early champion of the band with Editor-in-Chief Albert Mudrian calling The Circle and The Blue Door “the best debut of 2013” and featuring the band in their May issue.

Pre-orders of The Circle and The Blue Door are available via Metal Blade at this link: www.metalblade.com/purson.  Purson will make their debut U.S. performances this fall with tour dates forthcoming.
