Heavy Psych Sounds Fest in London 2019

As I entered the venue, the stairs lead straight down, I could hear the enticing rumble of drums and bass. The smoke started creeping up the stairs to meet me, as the sound grew louder. The whole room was filled with a thick haze, carrying the eerie green light through it. Creating an intriguing atmosphere of mystery and anonymity. I could barely make out the stage through the fog and people, but I could follow the near deafening sounds booming out. But, considering their name is Deadsmoke, I could hardly be surprised!

Veuve to release new studio album “Fathom” on May 31st 2019

Italian power stoner rockers Veuve are messing around since 2014, following up on a self-produced debut EP and their 2016 full-lenght album, “Yard”, the band takes on a new step and will release their hotly anticipated, sophomore album, “Fathom”, on May 31st, 2019, via Argonauta Records!

The Well share new track “Sabbah”

Austin trio The Well share a new track today from their forthcoming third album “Death and Consolation”.

Listen to the crushing album opener “Sabbah” below.

“Death and Consolation” is without a doubt a weighty album title. And, The Well is among the heaviest heavy psych bands in existence. So when we say that there’s even more darkness and intensity to the band’s third album than previous efforts, take heed. It’s a deep sea diving bell of enveloping heaviness and longing.
 

Earth to release new studio album “Full Upon Her Burning Lips” on May 24th 2019

Over the course of their thirty trips around the sun, Earth has remained diligent in their commitment to monolithic minimalism. The sonic vocabulary may have changed - from their early years churning out seismic drone metal on albums like “Earth 2” (1993) to the dusty Morricone-tinged comeback album “Hex; or Printing in the Infernal Method” (2005) to the meditative rock approach of “Primitive and Deadly” (2014) - but the underlying principle of austerity and restraint remains a constant.
