Awesome Portugese Stoner Rock: Miss Lava.

From the city Lisbon comes Miss Lava. This is an awesome Stoner Rock band. Miss Lava is from the same scene as Marbles is. So you know a bit of what you can expect: Great fuzzin' Stoner riffs, a cool singing guy and a nice rhythm section. These guys know how to write great songs! Earlier before I've heard their demo and that was promising. With the debut album Blues For The Dangerous Miles they make it all true. Enjoy!
(Thanx to Sslessar!)

Lisbon's heavy rock ensemble Miss Lava debuts its first recording. The result is a powerful output, a flaming bitch that is burning with the desire to unleash its lava rock 'n roll disaster onto the world. Miss Lava is ready to burn baby.
For years vulcanoes keep building up pressure, boiling heat in their interior, waiting for the right moment to explode and show nature’s strength to the world in rivers of lava.

This seems to be Miss Lava's case, a flaming bitch that took its time to blast its genuine dose of heavy rock 'n roll disaster upon the earth. After releasing a blood red vinyl acclaimed by the critics and playing more than 50 gigs in Portugal, the band's full length was a natural step.

The result is a powerful rock 'n roll disaster, released in Portugal last October 09.

From the free wheelin' demon speedin' of the opener "Don't Tell a Soul" to the psychadelic landscapes of "Scorpio", "Blues For The Dangerous Miles" is a rich sonic journey. There's the inevitable stoner anthem "Ain't Got Time”, the sky filling chorus of the single "Black Rainbow", the rebellious heaviness of "Revolt", the heavy march of "Blind Dog", the sexy shakin' of "Birth, Copulation and Death", the dramatic "The Wait", the self brightness of "Shine On", the groovy twist of "Second Chance" and the epic escape of the title song.

The vulcano has erupted.

Miss Lava is ready to burn, baby.
