Black Rainbows – Cosmic Ritual Supertrip


Black Rainbows – Cosmic Ritual Supertrip
Heavy Psych Sounds – 2020
Rock, Psych, Proto, Stoner, Seventies
Rated: *****

Just as with Geezer’s Groovy album, this one comes through Heavy Psych Sounds, and this one also starts with an absolute banger of an opener. At Midnight You Cry is stunning and it results in you knowing that the Italian Fuzz rockers that is Black Rainbows have done it again! Cosmic Ritual Supertrip turns out to be an amazing album and probably their best to date. And that is saying something of the band that released records such as Hawkdope and Stellar Prophecy. There’s a different kind of groove here, more electric and more grating, more punch and more smash ‘n grab. Fast paced and invigorating. Everything feels thick, dense and swirling. Like a cosmic maelstrom that turns solid fast and then drops out of the sky with a heavy pounce. And there is twelve tracks of this. And seriously, all of them have an amazing edge to them. High energy and a weight sound, man, this is gonna be on repeat for much of the summer. Sure, that opener is already freakishly good. But how about that more spacey and doomy approach on second track Universal Phase or absolute stoner car banger Radio 666. The sun is out, the window is open, the city is growing smaller in the rearview mirror, and we’re going straight to the devil!

And how about that Madman Tony Maim! He fired up his Black Insect Laughter and righteously wrote about his love for this album as well! A potential masterpiece Tony? It is a masterpiece!
