Lunar Flight

This is a great EP from the Italian band T.H.U.M.B. This band has made some awesome Psychedelic Stoner Rock. This band remind me a bit of the Swedish band Lowrider. Lunar Flight is the second EP T.H.U.M.B. has made and it contains four great tracks. Enjoy!

I don't hear that many bands from Italy but often the ones I do hear are quite cool. This is a 4 track EP and the band describes their music as heavy psych stoner trips, which for this release is a good description. The CD starts off with the fantastic 9 minute title track, "Lunar Flight". After the space sounds, a heavy distorted wall of sound with spacey vocals and some cool guitar sounds here and there. It is quite psychedelic and spaced out while maintaining a hard driving rhythm and some great spaced out psychedelic guitar soloing. Awesome! "Wasted Words" is a very low-fi distorted track and quite psychedelic. "Kobal, the Eggman from Venus" is a short 1½ minute strange piece that leads into "Magic Drug", which is a fast track like a psychedelic Dozer track or something. Don't get too stoned when you listen to this CD... just a warning. Fans of early Monster Magnet will appreciate this!
