Great Spanish Stoner Rock.


Viaje A 800 is a band from the beautiful Spanish region Andalucia. This region is famous for the Flamenco music. Viaje A 800 has nothing to do with that. Viaje A 800 plays a combination of Stoner Rock, Psychedelic and 70's Hard rock. Their MySpace says that Viaje A 800 is influenced by the following: Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Groundhogs, Hendrix, Melvins, Greg Sage & The Wipers, Triana, Smash, Alice In Chains, Buffalo, Virgenes Adolescentes, Pink Floyd, Randy Holden, The Beatles, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Grand Funk Railroad, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Pentagram, Soundgarden, The Misfits, Saint Vitus, Warrior Soul, Kyuss, Triquinoise Producciones, Chapa Discos, Acerinox, Cepsa, Celupal(D.E.P.), etc...
The first release of Viaje A 800 was a split EP with Los Natas. The albums Diablo Roto De and Estampida De Trombones were both released in 2007. These albums are high quality with lots of diversity. Diablo Roto De is a re-issue with four bonus tracks. Enjoy!

After all that time out of the music scene Viaje a 800 come back with a very unique and personal collection of music that sound fresh and original as only they could make it: psychodellic hard rock, grunge, punk, stoner rock, metal, doom etc. Instrumental tracks and experimentation together with great hard rock tracks that gets you down since the very first listening. An album to discover... Pink Floyd influences, Hawkwind or Neil Young shake hands with Trans Am, Corcobado or Alice in Chains and still everything sounds natural and easy.

Viaje A 800 - Estampida De Trombones (2007)


"Puta Madre!! Fresh from their split 10" with Argentinain rock kings NATAS on RecOrbitial Records, come Southern Spain's VIAJE A 800. Their first album for Alone/Custom Heavy Records is Diablo Roto De... a collection of eight groove-laden doom n' roll tunes sung in their native tounge. Just a causual listen will explain why VIAJE A 800 is one of the hottest underground bands in Spain right now. Turn on, tune in and dig the International language of rock! "
