Number 17

Number 17

“Whenever there is decay of righteousness… and there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I, Myself come forth… for the destruction of evil-doers for the sake of firmly establishing righteousness. I am born from age to age.” Bhagavad Gita, fourth discourse

These guys turned out to be one of the best bands on Speedfest this year. Something I had not expected given the nature of the festival and the concrete industrial halls, which could be too big for such a band and distort their sound. And given the hour of the day and the long lines outside there were unfortunately only a handful of devotees to witness their tight spaced out show. It was their last evening of the tour with Monster Magnet and it was clear for the ones that were there that the guys had learned a lot. The played their set amazingly firm and strong and visited their 2012-released fourth album. Like true nectar of gods their sounds weave and float through your mind and expand it in true psychedelic fashion. So drink up and let the hardy taste transport you to another world…

My Sleeping Karma – Soma

  1. Yes! They are always incredible live; and this album is a true beauty!

  2. True, this band is live a-must-seen.
    Great musicians, too pity "The Great Escape" disbanded too early. Loved that band!

    Soma is a good album, but I miss some intensity-punch, to describe it as excellent.

    You know, just waiting that one can say: "Yeah, let's kick out the jams, NOW!".

    You know, like surfers waiting for the ultimate high wave - 27 meter is great but where's that f*cking 28 meter wave, to beat Garrett McNamara ........ and to become the n°1?
