Mexicoma is back with full throttle! On their second full length vinyl output they offer five fresh remastered tracks which appeared on the Supervoid EP from 2012 and 4 brandnew tracks who show the potential this band has.
The tracks are shorter and more accessible than on their epic same titled debut and show a wider variety of styles – which fits perfect to the heavyrockers from Umea in Northern Sweden. The three guitars are building huge walls of sound over the massive fundaments that charlie & oscar lay down. Over this impressive instrumentation sings and cries Magnus better than ever! A tour in 2014 with festival appearances is in the planning – let them conquer the stages!

On their new album Obsidian Monolith we are still assaulted by three axe-slinging maniacs! We are ofcourse talking about the Swedish six-piece stoner train that is Mexicoma! Which barrels down the line full force as the first track Keep Me Alive kicks in. And during this one and the next never eases up on the throttle; cause the beating continues on Mortified with drums that leave you completely battered and bruised. But with the third and fourth it deepens, darkens and grows into something grandiose which will stand tall until the end of time. And then comes the mighty pounding groove in the dangerous sounding Room 101. And the magnificence goes on and on and on until the final unplugged version of Salvation. Which shows Mexicoma is capable of almost anything we could possible think of. After treating us to grade A seventies inspired hard rock with hefty stoner influences on their first releases Supervoid and Mexicoma they’ve morphed into something bigger, taller and shinier. Like a mystical clouded monument that only shows its real beauty to the initiated…
