Plan 9 From Outer Space

I want to thank the band The Dive and their record label Spinalonga Records for sharing this album! The Dive is a band from Athens, Greece. This quartet plays awesome Rock music with several influences like Stoner, Psychedelic and Grunge. Their self titled debut album contains over one hour music, that can be described as outstanding. Despite the minor QOTSA inspiration, The Dive has definitely a sound of their own. The songs are varied and entertaining. On the musical level performs this band very well. The compositions are more than fine and original. All in all is The Dive a band that deserves attention. Enjoy and support this band!

Surviving in Athens, influenced and drenched by city rats and the rancid stench lurking in the atmosphere, the Dive put out their debut album. Dark in its most cheerful of melodies, sonic even in its silence, this album manifests its own, peculiar soundprint… Out now! Complements of Spinalonga and the Lab Records.
(From Spinalonga Records)

"The Dive were formed in the year 2000. Influenced mostly from 70s and 90s rock, garage and punk they produce a psychedelic mix with their own, unique soundprint. They've participated in local compilations,shared the stage-as supporting acts with bands like Mudhoney, Brant Bjork, Nightstalker ,Truckfighters and played live all around Greece. In the spring of 2011, they released their self-titled debut album on Spinalonga Records and Lab Records."
