Maize – Maize

Maize – Maize
Self released – 2012
Rock, Psychedelica, Space, Stoner
Rated: ****

Maize is nothing less than a psychedelic cathedral of riffs and floating waves of guitar layers with sparse vocals that weave across it like some long lost mythical story. Like a tale about the old soul of the world in a tongue only understood by that voice deep inside. The trio from Viseu Portugal delivers four epic jams on their first self-titled EP. The most distinct aspect of this space rock, psychedelic and stoner extravaganza is the majestic groove they have going on. Their apparent ease in how they combine their technical madness into laid-back, jovial and smooth sounding sound structures together with their savory solos and ferocious eruptions make for that perfect musical amalgam once again. For one does not know for certain which of the parts are there to divide, conquer and function as intermission. The slow nomadic atmospheric moments or the wild and savage stampedes. With perhaps a few more vocal lines Maize will achieve perfection or perhaps they already have with their translation of the endless space! Tokpela!
