Danish Heaviness

The digital copy of this 12" maxi single was send to me by Mikko of the band Double Space.
Double Space is a trio from Aarhus, Denmark. This band plays some awesome Sludge/Stoner Doom/Noise Rock. With this debut single, Double Space displays some great Heaviness. This single contains some great music with perfectly matching vocals. If I have to compare this music with something, then I say High On Fire.
This single is just a start. These two tracks taste absolutely for more! So listen this 12" maxi single and you will decide to buy it! You can buy the single on their Myspace or here: Support Double Space in any way you can! (By leaving a comment for example!) Enjoy!

DOUBLE SPACE distills the essence of sludge, stoner doom and noise rock into their own crystal clear vision: Unmatched heavy epic groove rock. An utterly relentless onslaught of crushing power riffs and killer leads. Never looking back!

DOUBLE SPACE - based in Aarhus, Denmark - formed late 2003 around the recording of a handful of songs the two guitarists Mikko Mansikkala Jensen and Rasmus Rosenkilde Jensen had written together. Drummer Per SilkjÊr was initially brought in as a session drummer. Yet the DOUBLE SPACE universe instantly engulfed him. The heaviness, the curious guitar melodies and the persistent search for the ultimate in every aspect of making music.

And even before these recordings were to be released and receive high appraisal from Danish underground press, the first show was played supporting Electric Turn To Me and Lost Sounds. Over the years stages are shared with a ton of bands, including Unsane, Fuck The Facts and Ufomammut, and a reputation as a mind blowing live act is established. Dreaded by headliners - loved by stoked audiences.

On paper the combination of two guitarists and a drummer may strike one as a bit odd, in terms of playing seriously low end based music. But as any member of a DOUBLE SPACE concert audience will testify: îIt does not get much more massive than this!î. And here you also find the reason why DOUBLE SPACE fans have dubbed the bandís backline Twin Towers. The sound of a colossal brick wall collapsing on top of you!

Seemingly DOUBLE SPACE have everything going for them, yet they are followed by a dark shadow. Suicidal girlfriends and chaotic love lives, record deals with labels that fold, producers who drop off the face of the earth carrying entire DOUBLE SPACE recording sessions and the list goes on. Everything from the smallest margin to the greater powers work against them on a bit too regular basis. The emotional havoc spills into the lyrical content, and the band discovers they can use this, as their own collective therapy session to overcome.

Another break is caught when Danish Metal Award nominees Rising step up and ask DOUBLE SPACE to support them on their 2010 European tour. A two track maxi 12î, mixed by Q (Danish indie rock darlings Figurines, Tiger Tunes, Beta Satan a.o.) - an avid DOUBLE SPACE fan - is released by the band for the occasion.

Immediately upon the return from the tour, late March 2010, four new songs are tracked live with Jacob Bredahl (ex-Hatesphere, Last Mile, The Kandidate) by the helm at his Dead Rat Studio. îThere has never been so much low end in this studio!î Bredahl confesses at first. And then he proceeds to torture the band to deliver their all-time best.

Things are indeed looking up for Double Space, and the nearest future has been dedicated to obtaining worldwide distribution for the debut 12î, hunting for a vinyl label to release the next one, and not least, torturing Bredahl until he delivers the mix of a life time.

Great Italian Instrumental Psychedelics

This outstanding piece of work that was send to me by Brano of the band Manthra Dei. Thank you for that, Brano!
Manthra Dei is an Instrumental Psychedelic trio from Brescia, Italy and this is their same titled debut EP. This EP contains two awesome tracks that both are around 18 minutes long. The guys of Manthra Dei are very good musicians. The guitar player is so damn good! And his playing is well complemented by the drummer and bassist. This band is very good with letting you get carried away with their music. This is the kind of music that I want to hear in a live performance! This EP brings me in a state of trance and in a state of euphoria! One funny thing: The start of the second track sounds a lot of Machine Gun by Jimi Hendrix. Enjoy!

Nice Greek Psychedelic Stoner Rock

These nice EP's are shared by the band 1000mods from Greece. This foursome play some very nice Psychedelic Stoner tunes and they sound a bit like Colour Haze.
The EP Liquid Sleep contains two great tracks. The first song called Liquid Sleep is a moody instrumental track and the second one, Burnt Sleep is an atmospheric song with some nice vocals.
The other EP called The Woodrose Effect has just one track. But it is an awesome twenty minute epic track. Enjoy!

1000mods is a stoner rock band from Hiliomodi, Greece. They formed in 2005 and after a few changes the final lineup was made up in summer 2006. From that time and later on they have played numerous live shows and sometimes they accompanied bands like Nightstalker (greek stoner rock legends), Brant Bjork, My Sleeping Karma,Radio Moscow and Colour Haze. They tend to impress everyone that attends their shows with their commitment to vintage equipment, the thick and heavy analog sound and their remarkably passionate on stage performing.

In the beginning of 2007 they released their self financed first EP “Blank Reality” on CD. In December 2009 they stroke back with a brand new 7” EP titled “Liquid Sleep”. Available on coloured (light green) vinyl by SuiSound.

In October 2010 they recorded their debut album with the almighty Billy Anderson(Sleep, Melvins, Neurosis, Om, Los Natas, Orange Goblin etc...).

Promising Stoner From Wisconsin

Thanks to Jeff from the band Romero for sharing the digital copy of their stunning 7" single!
Romero is a pretty new and heavy Stoner Rock/Doom/Metal trio from Wausau, Wisconsin, U.S.A. Their single Solitaire is a real promise for the future. I hope these guys are working on a full-length album, because I want to hear more from this band!
According to their MySpace Romero is influenced by the following bands: Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer, The Who, High On Fire, Melvins, Sleep, Clutch, Kyuss, The Sword, Neurosis, Torche, Sunn O))) And Floor.
The Solitaire single contains two awesome tracks, especially the song Solitaire is a masterpiece. This track has a very great slow groove! The second track El Sentido Morboso reminds me somehow of the Swedish band Lowrider.
There are only 500 copies pressed of this single, so be fast! Order your copy on their MySpace page. Enjoy!

Romero's Jeffrey Mundt spent most of the 90's behind the drum kit for a variety of bands including Bovine Records' THUG & punk legends, NAKED AGGRESSION. A long-time guitar player & songwriter, he often dabbled in fronting a band, but never pursued it seriously. Enter: a move to northern WI, a random Craigslist ad from bass player Josh Stanchik, a casual 8 month writing and recording session (with Mundt handling vocals, guitar & drums!) & Romero was born! Intent on creating a demo to locate & convince a drummer to work with them, Mundt & Stanchik were about a month from completion when... a drummer found them! Rumors of the project peaked the interest of PONEY drummer & vocalist Ben Brooks and he gleefully volunteered before even hearing a single note. Good thing he eventually liked what he heard!

ROMERO started playing live immediately. Very often. First, locally...then, nation-wide!

ROMERO spreads like a weed.

Goodbye Orange Sunshine, Hello Santa Cruz

Orange Sunshine is the most famous Fuzz band from The Hague, Holland. This trio has performed their last show at the Gods Of Groove fest last saturday. Yeah, that's right, Orange Sunshine will stop existing. But don't be sad. Some members will continue in the new band Santa Cruz. Check out their MySpace page and listen to their tunes and order their one track album.
Now back to Orange Sunshine. This band made four full-lenght albums and they're all awesome. This is their second album called Love=Acid Space=Hell and it is full of great Fuzz/60's/70's/Garage/Hard Rock songs. The major influence of Orange Sunshine is Blue Cheer. Orange Sunshine is absolutely blessed with the best guitar player of the The Hague agglomeration. Their shows where always great and loud! Enjoy!

Orange Sunshine: catching the very soul of the motor-blues garage-punk and acid proto-hardrock era of the late '60's and the early 70's? With band members derived from several Dutch '80's and '90's hardcore, garage-, doom-, acid-, surf-, noise-, punk- and hard-rock bands (such as Top
Gear, Panty Boy, Twin Earth, the White Trash Minstrels and Sunwheel from the metro area
of The Hague/Den Haag and Cromlech from Arnhem, check out for more information), Orange Sunshine started in a squat in The Hague early 1999 as a traditional 3-piece power blues band playing a mix of blues covers and originals in a very explosive way, in the very same intense way and with the very same raw sound and the very same high volume as the much inspiring power blues bands BLUE CHEER, MC5 and STACKWADDY once did in the late '60's, rendering, or should we say screaming out, the same pain, the same drugs (LSD, amphetamines, opiates), the same tension and the same soul.

Many shows followed, in many squats and bars, parties and youth centres, regular venues and main concert halls, in the Netherlands and abroad, a first record was expected and so we plunged into our own analogue recording studio in the squat where we also lived and rehearsed.

We always worshipped the music and the sound of BLUE CHEER's first 2 albums and to make sure we got as close as possible to their organic energy and exhilarating dynamics, we decided to do the recording ourselves, using authentic valve amplifiers and cabinets (Fender bassman, ampeg SVT), drums (Rogers), effects (a.o. spring reverb, tape echo, Electric Mistress flanger, Big Muff and Avora fuzz), an old 1" tape recorder and an old mixing console, and authentic recording techniques i.e. recording the space around us, instead of the modern-day close-micing with tons of compressors, gates and digital multi-effects. When the volume is so up, that the air turns into french cheese, you better register that french cheese instead of all the separate instruments that are used. The source has to be pure, but it's the flow that one records! Thus 'Homo Erectus' was produced and released on our own record label Motorwolf records by the end of the year 2001.
A sincere tribute to the sheer ritual drug that is the early music of BLUE CHEER and with the self-made 3D sleeve (a photograph of a gospel preaching freak messiah and his guitar God apostles on a German second-world-war tank) and the enclosed self-made Gibson- flying-V-shaped 3D glasses the record (limited to 500 vinyl copies) was sold out in half a year, you bet how eagerly all these record collectioneurs wanted to buy our bullshit story of the excavated acetate from an obscure '60's group. 2002 saw new opportunities for the band with a new bass player (Mischa Poppe) and a first small eastcoast/mid-west US tour. Very soon our sound and music began to evolve with the new band member and our new SUNN amplification (the ultimate howlin' and growlin' tube machines!), developing more into the black roots of rock'n'roll and rhythm'n'blues of CHUCK BERRY, BO DIDLEY and HENDRIX (the music we listened to as kids), while at the same time growing more into the CREAM-like pop song structures of the psychedelic '60's, but without losing the heavy rock aggression and wildness of our original set-up. Therefore we wanted another recording style for our second album release 'Love = Acid, Space = Hell' (recorded in our Motorwolf studio and released on Motorwolf records in 2003), more sort of like a 'professional' studio recording from around 1970 (perhaps even just as the old ROLLING STONES sounded on their records at the time), with all the limitations of that era (no computers, only an 8-track tape recorder, old-school condenser microphones, no digital mastering), resulting in a very warm sound, yet with a much more 'produced' production than 'Homo Erectus'. The hilarious 8-minutes drum solo (probably the first on a record in more than 25 years) and the over-the-top space-echo-laden and reverse-tape-recorded guitars and drums in our version of BO DIDLEY's 'hey mama, keep your big mouth shut' certainly add to the distinct and long gone psych/progrock feel of the record. A second small eastcoast US tour was done in december 2003 and very soon our fresh release, which had far better distribution now, was well received throughout the world. And while we are currently working on a lot of completely new material, a small German tour has been done around christmas 2004, a 7" is released on Germany's Swamp Room records at the same time (feat. a re-interpretation of the FUZZTONES' song 'Black-out') and our debut album 'Homo Erectus' is rereleased (with 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks) on cd by Holland's Clear Spot/Headspin records and on vinyl and cd by Japan's Leaf Hound records in the beginning of 2005. 2005 started great with holland's prominent 'roadburn' festival, but just before the 'stoned for the underground' festival in erfurt, germany, our bass player Mischa had to quit the band due to serious ear damage! Our friend Antal Buisman from the Zippies helped us out on bass for a few shows in the summer and autumn of 2005, but we're finally back with a new bassplayer: Mehdi Rouchiche, former guitar player of The Hague's old-school HC sensation Shorttime and graphic designer of Godspill, and we're closer to the old BLUE CHEER sound than ever before! However, we will still record an new album with Mischa Poppe and perform his last Orange Sunshine shows in Japan in 2006. Further plans for 2006 are a french/italian/swiss/german tour, 'Black-out' on the coming 'The Hague Motor Rock Vol.2' compilation by Motorwolf and the final release of the never released album 'Ruler of the Universe' (on vinyl by Motorwolf and on cd by Leaf Hound records), named after the 15-minutes long epic space psych track from Terry Brooke's Strange that we cover on the A-side (including sitar, tablas, crazy sectarian-cult-choir-like vocals and lots of endless manic soloing with a self-oscillating echo device). This album was produced while we recorded for the 'Homo Erectus' LP (with our former bass player Thomas van Slooten, who is now taking care of all the coming album artwork), during our 'psychedelic freak-out' sessions. And excessive heavy acid fuzz madness it is! Definitely the wildest, craziest and most extreme stuff we have ever done, of which one track ('Balls knocking') was previously released in early 2002 on the first volume of Motorwolf's 'The Hague Motor Rock', a compilation of 25 heavy garage-/surf-/punk-/ acid-/doom-/hard-rock bands from our metro area.
A fourth LP (as said before with Mischa Poppe) is also planned with a further development of our music, expanding into the styles of the early '70's, with subtle elements of black soul, gospel and funk (FUNKADELIC, SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE, CURTIS KNIGHT, GRAND FUNK), jazz (i.e. boogie, GEORGE BRIGMAN's style of melodic soloing), proto-doom hardrock (RANDY HOLDEN's POPULATION II) and even some techniques from Latin-American progrock groups (LOS DUG-DUG'S from Mexico, PAPPO'S BLUES from Argentina). Will we stick to our original principles or will we fall into the same trap as lots of heavy bands did during those dreadful 1970's?
The irony of this all is that we actually hate cliche blues rock, hippy space rock and other lame cannabis-influenced 'psychedelia', and all these terribly pretentious and technical progressive/kraut rock bands from the '70's (flutes!), you can imagine lots of people had a bloody good reason to ignite the punk virus! Thank the lord for the bad-acid-trip drug rock magnet that inflamed many a good band, 'damn you hippies, we still got our music!

Ridin' The Tiger

Gluecifer is a Norwegian Rock 'n' Roll band. I've seen this band playing as support act for The Hellacopters back in 1998. And that was quite impressive!
Ridin' The Tiger is their debut album from 1997. This album is influenced by bands like Motorhead, Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, MC5, The Stooges and so on. There are also similarities with another Norwegian band called Turbonegro. It is not only Rock 'n' Roll that Gluecifer plays, but also a perfect combination of Garage Rock, Hard Rock and Punk. Great songs are: Leather Chair, Rock 'n' Roll Asshole, Bounced Checks, Evil Matcher, Rockthrone and Burnin' White. Enjoy!

Formed hot on the heels of the Norwegian trendsetters Turbonegro, and pre-empting the Scandinavian garage rock revival by quite a few years, Oslo-based quintet Gluecifer made their full-length debut with 1997's surprisingly memorable Ridin' the Tiger. And, although they were clearly steeped in the same, post-glam, pure rock urges of their denim-clad, N.A.M.B.L.A.-loving heroes, there was also something decidedly Motörhead-ish about Gluecifer's brand of speed-addled psychosis (a feature also espoused by labelmates like the Hellacopters and the Backyard Babies, let it be said). The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and the pudding here contains a steady recipe of pedal-to-the-metal racers ("Leather Chair," "Evil Matcher," the self-evident "Burnin' White"), only interrupted by nearly as teetotal laughers like "Rock'n'Roll Asshole" and the wonderfully dangerous "Rockthrone." In fact, the members of Gluecifer were still so hopelessly addicted to that rush at this stage in their career, that they only find time to stop maniacally pogo-ing around the room on two or three occasions; and it's fair to say they sounded rather more ill at ease than self assured on the purposefully slick "Bounced Checks," the intensely groove-based "Titanium Sunset," and the amusingly warped "Obi Damned Kenobi." Still, for a debut album Ridin' the Tiger was a more than capable and even promising first step on Gluecifer's lengthy run.

Dirty Women

Dirty Woman is the fourth album by the Kentucky band The Glasspack. This band plays some kick ass Rock 'n' Roll with strong Stoner vibes. This album contains some great songs with a lot of fuzz guitars! Dirty Woman is absolute a great album, that at least one time must be heard! Enjoy!

On album number four, Kentucky rockers the Glasspack strike a midpoint between the '60s-obsessed garage rock revivalists and the '70s-obsessed likes of Wolfmother and Jet. Boogie is the operative word all over the genially lecherous Dirty Women, which is filled with the kind of walking-pace riffs that bands perform with their heads down and nodding in unison: think Status Quo or even Foghat. But the Glasspack cut the plodding tendencies of '70s boogie with a double dose of Nuggets-style snot rock on tracks like "Fastback" and "Fire in the Trailer Park." So the operative album to compare Dirty Women to is the Flamin' Groovies' career high point, Teenage Head: it's not nearly as good, but it has a similar blend of cock rock swagger and British Invasion-derived hooks. That is, until the climactic "Louisiana Strawberry," a full-tilt boogie jam that slogs on endlessly for an interminable 11 and a half minutes, which is particularly ironic since even at a tight two minutes 30, it would be one of the album's weaker tunes. Aside from that dull misstep, Dirty Women rocks mightily and unpretentiously, and who could ask for anything more?

One Track Of Fantastic Psychedelic Stöner

This album from the Italian band Stöner Kebab contains only one track, but it takes 33 minutes and 33 seconds! Stöner Kebab serves you some excellent Psychedelic Stoner Rock with this track. Enjoy!

If after having bought Ufomammut you've caught yourself thinking these Italians were really talented I think it's time to add another name to you agenda in view of the fact it looks like stoner rock from "Bel Paese" is having its say. One track, almost thirty three minutes of music and a good song construction. I'm still not sure the "long suite" solution is proper for them, but these Kebab lovers did it comfortably well even while defragmenting the song different organization with breaks, ups or downs. It all sounds really sludge right from the first riff, but after a while it gets soft and psychedelical: c'mon it's stoner at last!. Good riffs, good vocals, every sequence suits perfectly with those who comes first and with those following like a gear in a well oiled engine. Many will probably wonder if these guys have the Southern Lord' sound: sort of...they're way more melodic, seventies and "trippy". With some stoner bands you can see the Easy Rider's guy pushing the accelerator of their choppers, Imber Vulgi could be that part of the soundtrack when they're riding and the sun goes down just to add some romance to the whole post-Sabbath rifforama and given they gets heavier and darker when the songs end is approaching. To reach the climax Stoner Kebab added synths, harmonica and some effects to the guitar driven essence of their music and arranged it all with a hell of a taste. "You know I'm going to lose, and gambling's for fools, but that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live forever".

And Now... Something Completely Different

This is something for people who are familiar with the dutch language!
De Raggende Manne were a band that plays some strange music. It is a mix-up of several genres like Metal, Punk, Jazz and Noise. But the music is not really a matter here. It's all about the lyrics. For that you have to comprehend the dutch language. I'm a big fan of Bob Fosko and I always liked De Raggende Manne, although I never seen them perform on stage and that's a pity. This is a compilation I have made. I added also two songs of Bob Fosko's later band called De Gorelev. I think many of you don't like this post, but I had the urge to do this! Enjoy!

"De Raggende Manne" was a sound that originated in 1988 and raged on until 1999. Typically they were refreshingly raw energy, their lyrics telling - critically and with humor - and the roar into the microphone of lead singer Bob Fosko. All this accompanied by much noise guitar and drum violence ...

An Italian Surprise

This nice album was send to me by one of the singers of the band Staccionata!
Staccionata is a band from Roma, Italy. This band plays a combination of Stoner Doom, Hardcore, Kraut Rock and Post-something. (As discribed by this singer.)
The album Ecco sounds very psychedelic and experimental, due to the electronic effects and percussion they are using. The result is great. These six guys surprise with seven original tracks. The guitars sound mostly raw, but sometimes subdued. Both singers do their performance properly.
If you ever want to hear something totally different, then you can try this album. It deserves a listen anyway! Enjoy!

Two Years Of Insanity!

This blog is two years existing this very day. And it's still my pleasure posting music here! In these two years I've posted a lot of music and I like to thank the bands who have shared their music. I also like to thank the readers of this blog, especially the ones who has bothered to give a comment!
To celebrate this anniversary, I like to offer you a Suma album. (Just as last year!)
This is the re-released debut album from the Stoner Doom masters from Malmö, Sweden. In my idea Suma was very influenced by Electric Wizard in the time that Suma has recorded this album. But you can also hear bits and pieces that has lead to the development of their very own sound. Let The Churches Burn will always be my favorite Suma album, but this album is also great to listen! (As all other Suma stuff is!) Enjoy!

Radio Garage

This energetic beauty was shared with me by the band Radio Garage!
Radio Garage is a band from Lima, Peru. This band plays a combination of Rock 'n' Roll, Punk, Metal and Hard Rock. Their full-length debut album kicks ass! Radio Garage offers you eight great songs that will make your body move or at least it lets your head bang! You can also download their EP from 2005 on their Blogspot. Enjoy!

Garage Radio was formed in 2005 by Acosta and Barandiaran, who after going through various experiences in hardcore and punk bands, they decided to combine forces with old friends, Alfonso Chacon on drums (Kronocidio, Berserker, Ching Dynasty) and Coco Maple guitar (Kronocidio, Concrete) and began playing in local band circuit, they release a 4 song EP via Deskicia discs that get good reviews, then after exhausting tour concerts bars and holes appear in the compilation of web rockperu . org with two new songs after this, and many events, the band goes into a brief recess, which Alfonso and Coco out of the band to make way for the next stage with Kaminoisee (Macondo, God boredom, The Air ) and Oscar (Helldrunk) where the road takes you started recording the eponymous album on par with a string of gigs where the band earned the respect of the public and other bands, while the disc even finished editing, a new issue arises subsequent sessions to the compilation of Berraco Records label, the song "xdrmmr / a being without a name" is part of the horizon where he leads the group not to forget the raw and wild rock that is his trademark.
