Geezer’s latest studio album “Psychoriffadelia” has gone straight in at No.1 in the Doom Charts. The album, which is out on the 9th of June, sees the New York riff-merchants return on savage form, laying down riffs left, right and centre.
“Self described as “Cosmic Stoner Blues” comprised of “Heavy Psychedelic Riff Rock”, this three piece powerhouse is about to blow your mind and speakers in one fell swoop with this latest release of five separate compositions that stand alone and even better as a complete package. For the next 39 minutes of smoke filled vocal lamentations with a guitar slide so smooth, you can hear the blue in the glass as the bottom end rumble gives you that ‘body’ to close your eyes and roll along with each moment, taken along with all of the leading pace of this heavy-hit drumline that has enough perfectly timed fills to satiate the most veracious headbanger.” – Ric Dorr (Taste Nation)
“Psychoriffadelia” has already been hailed by many critics as one of the best releases of 2017 and is a MUST HAVE for any fan of the band and the heavy rock stoner genre.

“Often, our bias with Rock / Metal sung in languages other than English deprives us of seeing beautiful works such as Tierra del Fuego, the Chilean power-trio Demonauta.
What we have here is a Stoner Rock / Metal of psychedelia almost ethereal, drenched in fuzz, groovy lines, enveloping melodies, pulsating drums, and dynamic variations of tempo, in a desert and astral aura of pleasant weight.
In a collection of instrumental experimentations, weight and melody, beginning in the opening track “Into The Darkness”, going to the ending “Psiconauta”, passing through beautiful moments like “Del Vendaval” (an ethereal dance of weight and melody) and ” Astro II “(with moments that refer to the good times of Grunge), the three instrumental tracks are the biggest highlights of the album.
“Sahara Trip” (from desert to Palm Springs), “Cosmos” (in an oscillation of weight and travel) and “Psiconauta” reflect, due to the absence of vocals, an almost spiritual relationship between the members and their music.
Even in the bands that count on vocal lines, the words become movement and create an abstract and reflective musical geometry, of almost feverish numbness, in a perfect production for the genre.
This maturity is a consequence of his almost a decade of experience, and a combination of stabilized formation (after constant changes) by David Véliz (Guitar / Vocal), Miguel Quezada (bass) and Ale Sanhueza (Drums), since 2010.
Tierra del Fuego “, is already the band’s fourth album, completing the discography alongside” Vol 1 “(2011),” Caminando en la Luna “(2012) and the live” Woodsatco 2014 “(2014).
Be sure to check out this album, especially if Stoner Rock / Metal is to your liking.”

“With a sound that draws regular comparisons to Dead Meadow & Spacemen 3, Melbourne based experimental psych aficionados ‘Buried Feather’ have a lot to live up to. Since exploding onto the underground scene back in 2012 the band have unleashed two mesmerising singles and a debut full length filled to the brim with modern experimental psych flourishes and driving kraut rock tendencies all underscored by magnificently addictive mantra like instrumentation. ‘Buried Feather’ are now set to unleash their full length sophomore follow up to their 2013 self-titled 8 track monolith. ‘Mind Of The Swarm’ gets it’s full official release on February 10th 2017 via Melbourne based indie label Cobra Snake Necktie Records as well as the German based stoner rock imprint label Kozmik Artifactz. It will be released digitally and on limited edition 180g vinyl.
The albums closing piece shudders into life on a bedrock of off kilter drum patterns, tumbling bass lines and the rise & fall of massive swathes of fuzzy instrumentation. ‘Well Wishes’ tumbles through the ether held fast in a swirling maelstrom of heavenly noise. A fitting ending to a brilliant sophomore release.”
