Cosmic Fall – First Fall
Self released – 2016
Rock, Stoner, Hard, Psych, Space
The German trio Cosmic Fall has just released their first four track aptly called First Fall. Did you notice me omitting to name it an EP or an album? Cause even though there are only four tracks the record lasts for no less than 45 minutes. That constitutes a full album in my book any day. And during those 45 minutes, we’re getting treated to high soaring space rockers that touch the earth with thunderous heaviness and then take off again to explore the vast intergalactic nothingness. Yes, indeed, space rock it is. But only to an underlying degree, for the rest of the currents that surf on top are more stoner, hard rock and psychedelic oriented. Yes, indeed, with this arc of seventies tension and almost southern touches the four tracks just keep taking the amazing corners that keeps your attention focused on what might happen next. Well, apparently, the album is also headed for a vinyl release early 2017. And rightfully so! So, listen to them now, on repeat, as we do, cause track 3 mantras’ it into our head. And yes, we must obey!
