[Quick Fixes] Jagannatha - s/t [FR]

Jagannatha - s/t
Jagannatha is an instrumental heavy rock quartet from Grenoble, France.
They state that some of their favorite bands are: Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Tool, Kyuss, Sleep, Nebula, Camel.

After listening to their release there is a chance that you will find some of the above influences inside their music. Personally speaking, I think there is also a 'monkey3' touch in their compositions, but maybe it's only me, or maybe it's the instrumental nature of the release that lead me to that thought.

Considering the album as a whole, for me it is a 48 minute rove through a variety of musical sceneries that each one represents a different mood with a different approach but when all of them are mixed together in a single unity it creates a unique result. Anyone can realize that by listening the first track 'Krishna', and from that moment you know what to expect as the album unfolds. The album offers to the listener pleasure in many different ways, either through slow, mild guitar playing or through heavy riffs backed-up by the bass (in many cases distorted). The doom feeling blends beautifully with some "psych up melodies", especially in the last track which is the longest in duration.

In conclusion, for me Jagannatha's release is a remarkable debut that puts their name on my list of bands to keep an eye on them for the future. I really wonder how they will evolve in the future and I am already eager to listen to their next release.

Until then I will really enjoy listening their debut in repeat and I think most of you that are into doom and psych-doom and instrumental releases will feel the same.
Enjoy this release by clicking below on the bandcamp player.

[Band Visit] Cult of the Scum [GR]

cult of the scum
Formed in early 2014, as a side project of Shock Absorber guitarist Kostas Tsagkaris, ex-Shock Absorber bassist Tasos Tsiropoulos and Astray drummer Tolis Anagnostou, the Cult Of The Scum hit the ground running.

After extended rehearsing they entered the studio in the summer of the same year to record their first full length album, as a trio with Kostas taking over the vocals along with the guitar parts. 
The band's line up was expanded in early 2015 and the band became more than ready for live appearances. 

On 1st December 2016 'Cult of the Scum' uploaded on their bandcamp page their first recordings which came to be their debut album.
Playing a mixture of groovy, heavy rock and blues, 'Cult of the Scum' are a definite appetizer to 'escort' your beer or for any occasion involving an excessive-alcohol-consumption.

[Quick Fixes] Six Steps Above The Earth - Step 2

Six steps above the earth is, except of the place I live, a way to express myself slowly. heavily and with minimalism.
Through sound repetition and the feelings that it evokes to me, I fill and empty my mind leaving my hands free to play.
But it's not just me, there are others at time to time that come or will come and offer their energy.
Let’s move to Step 2

[Quick Fixes] Dəem - _

Dəem - _ (http://wearedeem.bandcamp.com/)
The guitarist and the drummer of 'Darnakes' left Greece and they are currently living in Stockholm, Sweden.
There, they created a new project with the name 'Dəem' and created this experimental, psych-folk album using bouzouki, bass and drums.
A very special release, highly recommended for everyone that likes folk experimentation projects. The music has a lot of Greek folk and Eastern elements with an "electric" approach and a paganistic touch.

The artwork was made by Theano G. (bass on Craang)
Recorded, mixed and produced Flow Recordings, Serres, Greece.

Dəem were also featured in Downtuned's Compilation "Abell35-"


.sotos.

a quote from their bandcamp page:
...with all ways out blocked, caught in an never-ending spiral present, redemption can only be achieved through Dəem (Da- ém); a banned timeworn ritual demanding the trade of a part of one’s self in order to reveal the lost path towards the light. Anticipating the effect and then silence
