Album of the week: Progrockers Birth

What excellent trippy music is this, I see space, I see Mellotrons in space, I see strange alien fish riding those Mellotrons right into black holes while birthing rainbows.

This is Birth, The Californian band with three seven minute tracks of prog and space rock. Excellent stuff by a new band thats pushing progrock to a comeback. This is both music for old humans as fresh ones, for families and singles, depressed ones and happy hippies. The album is out on Bad Omen Records.

Check it out now.

Dead Neanderthals gift us “Mankind”

Dead Neanderthals is a band I am a bit addicted too, if they are too long gone I feel an itch and that itch needs to be scratched and luckily Dead Neanderthals release a lot of music. “Ghost” was released back in September and ended on my end of the year list because of its eerie amazingness. This band is best at creating hypnotic atmospheres and they can do this with ambient, noise, metal or weirdness all together, but they always succeed. On their new track that is called “Mankind” and is 13 minutes long they succeed again. Hypnotic drone rock bordering on the post metal at its best.

Tune in and enjoy.

Dead Neanderthals release ‘Ghost’

I really like the moment I press play on a new Dead Neanderhals record. They release a lot of music, so that moment they release something new has become someting sacred for me. I know I have to be in a specific headspace to start to listen to a full record of them. The  music they make is mostly challenging and it always has a darker side to it, an eerie vibe. So this time it was me and my headphones late at night in an armchair ready to let 40 minutes of experimental stuff take me over.

This time the Dutch band (Otto and René) are collaborating with Scott Hedrick from Skeleton Witch so I thought it would be some kind of metal influenced album. But no, it isn’t and that is what makes this band so great. The first track ‘Bone Hill’ is 20 minutes and extremely intense, the building of the track is slow and excrutiating adding only layers when absolutely necessary. ‘Death Bell’ is more atmosheric and magical and erupts in an epic explosion in the end.

Again a magnificent record for the lover of the experimental, weird and intense.

Dead Neanderthals strike again

Every now and then there is a radio that i am forced to listen to, these same easy pop tunes and repetitions of those same artists every hour make me depressed and frustrated.
Luckily i can choose my own music most of the time. And this time i choose 12 minutes of ominous drone and drums from Dead Neanderthals.  Because of some very weird reason this makes me happy.
After their last release called ‘Life’ comes ‘Birth’.

Birth
She felt like she lost all of her humanity, which was strange because she still had the same thoughts as before. Who changed her appearance?
