Earthless – Night Parade of One Hundred Demons (2022)

“There’s an ancient Japanese legend in which a horde of demons, ghosts and other terrifying ghouls descend upon the sleeping villages once a year. Known as Hyakki Yagyō, or the Night Parade of One Hundred Demons, one version of the tale states that anyone who witnesses this otherworldly procession will die instantly—or be carried off by the creatures of the night. As a result, the villagers hide in their homes, lest they become victims of these supernatural invaders. Such is the inspiration for the latest album from EARTHLESS… Whereas 2018’s Black Heaven featured shorter songs and vocals from guitarist Isaiah Mitchell on much of the album—an unprecedented move for the San Diego power trio—their latest is a return to the epic instrumentals EARTHLESS made their unmistakable name on. Night Parade Of One Hundred Demons is comprised of two monster songs—the 41-minute, two-part title track and the 20-minute “Death To The Red Sun.”… All told, Night Parade of One Hundred Demons isn’t just a return to the band’s traditional format—it’s a return to their very beginnings.”

Domadora – The U Book (2021)

“The U Book is a testimony to what makes the identity of Domadora: their organic way of making and playing music. There is no preparation, no Intro, and no Outro. There are no restraints, there is just pure music expressed through vibrations, strong or soft ones; Our current emotions are the only thing that leads us… If we fully relax and let go, it feels like we are no longer the ones making music. It feels like some benevolent entities have joined us, taken charge and are the one playing. It feels like being under a harmless hypnotic trance for hours.”

Kanaan – Earthbound (2021)

“Emerging from an ocean of fuzz like a Kyuss that went to jazz school, instrumental power trio Kanaan are ready with their fourth studio album in as many years… Where Kanaan’s former albums have been jazzy and psychedelic explorations, with forays into kraut and free improvisation, the new album Earthbound comes at you, heavier than a ton of bricks. However, even though they wear their stoner rock influences on their sleeve, the music is not a departure from their earlier projects, more of a continuation. Inspired by bands such as Colour Haze, Hawkwind, Elder, Motorpsycho and Acid Mothers Temple, Earthbound serves up plenty of surprising twists and turns, beautiful and mellow passages and masterful musicianship. Although never flashy, the whole album is a showcase of the three wildly talented musicians as they plow their way through enormous riffs and thunderous grooves.”

The Spacelords – Unknown Species (2021)

“The German Space- / Psychedelic Rock band The Spacelords with their new album. Guitarist Matthias “Hazi” Wettstein, drummer and singer Marcus Schnitzler and bassist Ekhard Friedrich “Akee” Kazmaier present themselves full of energy on their new studio album. The three tracks unfold their complete beauty in the usual manner. That is, the structure of the individual pieces leaves room for the necessary development, grabs hold at exactly the right moment to catapult the listener into orbit with precision and top speed. “Unknown Species” offers space rock and psychedelic of the best kind. Three long pieces between 8 minutes and over 20 minutes are the perfect listening pleasure for every Spacelords & Psychedelic fan.”
