Acid Guru Pond – Acid Guru Pond (2016)

“The album opens with a bit of pastoral psych before it moves into heavier tones and the ozone burn of AMT and Guru Guru can both be felt. Its not as slung with rhythmic chug as one might expect given that Guru Guru is involved, rather the combo seems to be coasting on melted vibes that roll through floor puddled zone out to the clash of free jazz ramble (specifically “Orange”). By the time “Red” rolls around the record drops into noisier territory, smoldering in full on cinder-psych territory, uncomfortable in any position and twisting to break free of its constraints.”


Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno – Anthem of the Space (2005)

“Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno is one of many offshoots/permutations of Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.. Acid Mothers Temple & the Cosmic Inferno differs from the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. not only in line-up but also in style of music. The Cosmic Inferno generally plays much heavier, hard-rock inspired psychedelia, and experiments more with effects pedals.”


Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. – Univers Zen Ou De Zéro À Zéro (2002)

“Acid Mothers Temple is a completely freak out japanese neo-hippie tribe led by the guitarist Malato Kawabata (partially known for previous works published at the end of the 1970s). The band were formed in 1996 under the name Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O (Underground Freak Out). They started their career playing perpetual psychedelic jams very closed to Amon Duul II and Gong at their most gorgeous spacey rock moments… Each album contains its special dose of “acid” musical fantasies, including lot of fuzzy guitars, “stoned” vocals, droning synthscapes and some futurist Eastern raga sounds.”
