Wedge - Lucid Video

26 December, 2017

Wedge have confirmed a February 9th release date for their second album, Killing Tongue. The album will be released via Heavy Psych Sounds and to promote Killing Tongue, the German retro-rockers have shared a video for Lucid.


The band offers some comment on the track - "Lucid is about a certain state of dreaming in which you become aware that you are dreaming. It's called "lucid dreaming" and it requires training in order to obtain this ability. Once you master it, you can do virtually anything within your dreams ...which can be pretty psychedelic ...or scary, dependent on what you're up to. The video was shot in Leipzig by some dear friends of ours."



Winter Moon - You Got Me Single (2017)

25 December, 2017

I think that Winter Moon is one of the highlights of the current Australian indie scene. I have been a fan ever since I heard the Lucid Dreaming EP, and every time when I thought their music couldn’t get any better... it does!


You Got Me is a beautiful, haunting song. If you enjoy soulful music with a hint of blues throw in, this is for you. The vocals are fantastic. From the beginning to the very end, Molly's voice gives you goosebumps.


This is the type of song you won't want to stop listening to, it is just that good. Can't wait for a full-length album!

Desertfest London 2018: Old Empire stage announced!

03 December, 2017

No comments: Links to this post

DESERTFEST LONDON are thrilled to reveal the bands taking part in the festival's annual Old Empire stage, that will be hosted on Friday 4th May at the Electric Ballroom in Camden.


Old Empire is now a household name in the London scene, working across an array of acts, venues and cities - we are stoked the heaviest crew, and our favorite drinking buddies, are back in the fold to bring us a stage with some of their most treasured bands! Taking place on the hallowed ground of the Electric Ballroom on May 4th, Old Empire gives you the lowdown below…

For the first time in DF history, Friday will see two headliners sprawled across town – with Swedish stalwarts GRAVEYARD making their long-awaited return to London at the iconic Koko, we had to rustle up something of equal measure. An act we have wanted to book across the festival since our first year of involvement, it’s a true honour to announce that British trailblazers of the extreme NAPALM DEATH are the headline act for the OE ritual – their influence on the world of heavy music is undeniable and hard to truly fathom. Never one to disappoint live, a set of insanity is upon us.

Our second artist comes in a wave of God-like reverence to Old Empire, a master of his craft – Patrick Walkers’ WARNING will bring the Electric Ballroom to its knee’s. One of the most poignant and genuinely dark British doom bands of all time, ‘Watching from a Distance’ is a masterpiece of the highest order. Having reformed for Roadburn 2017, we are thrilled WARNING will be joining us in London - all should know and all should follow.

Next up is an act that needs little introduction to the world of Desertfest, and one who perfectly embody the spirit of the Empire – the mighty EYEHATEGOD make their long-awaited return. A little bit heavy metal, a whole bunch of venom and buckets of dirty groove – we’re all well aware of the party that ensues when these NOLA legends hit the stage, so it felt about damn time to bring ‘em back!

Another familiar face to the London scene comes in the form of WINTERFYLLETH. Hitting the Old Empire spectrum back in 2011, the Mancunian quartet have since consistently impressed with their unique and anthemic take on black metal. Helping to round of proceedings is FIVE THE HIEROPHANT, whose dark jazz soundscapes and eclectically heavy, yet perfectly refined, mix of sounds will make the live debut at Desertfest 2018. Alongside newbies to the scene ACDX - equal parts Isis, Hawkwind and Opeth. The dictionary definition of this Essex group would simply say, ‘indefinable’.

Old Empire & Desertfest are beyond excited to be brothers in arms once again; we hope our assorted and all-embracing heavy picks have hit the palette in the most satisfying and exciting of ways. ~ Purple Sage PR

Duel Announce European Autumn Tour

Duel European Tour Poster

Duel is staying busy! The Texan hard-rockers will play 30 dates across 9 countries later this year, which is already their fourth European tour. The band is further on supporting its fantastic latest effort, Witchbanger. They’ll kick off the run of 30 shows in Pisa on November 10 and wrap up in Rome on December 9. You can check out the dates and details below.


Heavy Psych Sounds Records is happy to announce the upcoming repress of DUEL's sold out debut "Fears of the Dead". Their newly released album "Witchbanger" is still available here.

Hailing from the sun-baked lands of Austin, TX, DUEL is a heavy metal four-piece who casts hard-rocking spells of doom, blistering licks and horror from behind a thick haze of smoke. Formed by two ex-members of Scorpion Child and hugely influenced by the darkness of late 60's and early 70’s metal, these purists cut it right to the bone with heavy, deep grooves and blistering tunes.

After they released their well-acclaimed debut "Fears Of The Dead" in February 2016 on Heavy Psych Sounds, DUEL are back with their even more raging full-length, cheekily entitled "Witchbanger", due out April 28th, 2017. The album was produced and engineered by lead guitarist Jeff Henson at his Red Nova Ranch studio in the wastelands of Texas, not far from the historic Texas Chainsaw Massacre house. ~ Purple Sage PR

R.I.P. - Street Reaper Album Cover

Last year, R.I.P. took the doom metal scene by surprise with an excellent debut album, In The Wind, and now they're already back with a brand new record, called Street Reaper. Well, maybe not exactly now because the album is set for release on 13 October. As for now, to build up hype for the new album, you can listen to two songs from Street Reaper.

OHHMS Announce European Fall Tour 2017

OHHMS European Tour Poster

"UK's most fire-driven progressive metal quintet OHHMS have announced a significant batch of festival and club shows to take place in Europe this fall. Not to be missed."


The group’s Fall 2017 tour begins at Mammothfest in Philadelphia on October 8. OHHMS then plays at Desertfest Belgium in Antwerp on October 14. From there, the British doom rockers bring the tour to Copenhagen (DK), Dusseldorf (DE), Stuttgart (DE), Oberhausen (DE) and Leeuwarden (NL) ahead of their tour-closing show in Haarlem (NL) on November 21.


Armed with the thickest riffs and fieriest will, OHHMS formed in 2014 in Kent, UK. It didn't take long for the five-piece to come up with two stellar EPs "Bloom" (2014) and "Cold" (2015), both released on London-based extreme music powerhouse Holy Roar Records. Clocking in at over thirty minutes, each EP unfolds with two monolithic, angst-ridden tracks, blending the down-tuned approach of doom metal with more progressive, eerier landscapes. On top of this distinctive approach in songwriting, vocalist Paul Waller maintains maximum adrenaline levels by alternating sumptuously deep gravelly singing, his warrior bellows and roar-is-war call to arms. ~ Purple Sage PR

Stoner Mountain's Weekly Bandcamp Discoveries Cover

Welcome to the fifth issue of Stoner Mountain's Weekly Bandcamp Discoveries. As you can see, time is still not on my side. I drift between projects like an Alzheimer’s patient, so it's some kind of small wonder that I am able to focus enough to even create this list. Also, sorry guys for not responding to your emails and messages lately. This instalment features a lot of recent discoveries (actually by 'recent discoveries' what I really mean is 'discoveries made over almost two months ago' xd) from countries like Germany, France, Russia, USA, Brazil and Venezuela.
