The Rising Sun Experience – Beyond The Oblivious Abyss

The Rising Sun Experience – Beyond The Oblivious Abyss
Self released / Monster Rock Booking – 2013
Rock, Seventies, Psych, Prog, Hard, Stoner
Rated: ***

Heavy psychedelic progressive rock music hailing from Lisbon, Portugal that pays its dues to the great seventies. Well, that about says everything about the new album Beyond The Oblivious Abyss by the six piece The Rising Sun Experience. The records starts with a blazing rocker that has something of a funky edge and continues on with two tracks that are more spacey and stonerish. After which the epic five part Wasted Dreams Of Red Flowers starts. A true phantasmagorian ecology story that evokes memories of great progressive and symphonic albums while still retaining something heavy and masterfully switches between atmospheric ambience and hard rocking. And just listen to those wails and cries that close off the album…
