FLOOR are back with ‘Oblation’. Adding a dose of doom and a dash of drone, this new opus perfectly encapsulates FLOOR’s trademark desert rock feeling of shimmering heat, the pound and stomp of heavy engines, and a burning taste of diesel in the air. CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou mixed the album at GodCity Studios (TORCHE, KVELERTAK, HIGH ON FIRE) and the mastering was done by Alan Douches (BARONESS, BLACK TUSK, MOTÖRHEAD). Lean back, crank up and sacrifice to the gods of stoner rock with this mighty ‘Oblation’.
MASTODON exploded onto the scene in 2002 with their debut LP Remission a record that would immediately establish them as one of the most important bands in the history of heavy music. Combining an unparalleled level of musicianship together with songwriting sophistication that simply did not exist amongst their peers, were it to be initially released today Remission would still be nothing short of mindblowing.

There surely aren’t many bands that can lay claim to being the primary exponents of an entire genre – but psychedelic legends Omnia Opera can, because, well, they invented it.
Incorporating searing punk-edged acid rock with cutting-edge interstellar synthesis & sampling, with well-observed politically-edged, socially-conscious and cosmically-inclined lyrics alongside powerful arrangements.
Fast-forward to 2006, and the band spent the next four years writing and recording what was to become their magnum opus, the album ‘Nothing is Ordinary’.
Meticulously remastered for vinyl and with packaging to match the original CD release (a stunning triple-gatefold sleeve, with printed inserts to house the vinyl).
An absolute essential for any lover of psychedelic music or acid rock.
The Dhaze are a power trio,based in Naples, founded in 2017 by Simone Pennucci (vocals/guitar), Vincenzo La Tegola (bass/vocals) and Lorenzo Manna (drums).
The band plays a personal variety of psychedelic rock, firstly influenced by 70’s music, stoner rock, doom metal and pure lysergic sounds, but also inspired by other musical contexts such as grunge or alternative rock. Among the band influences we find Colour haze, All Them Witches, Kyuss, Tea Party, Tool, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Dead Meadow and many others.
Deaf Dumb Blind is the The Dhaze’s debut album. Lyrics are inspired by the dark side of human nature, passing towards the psychological abyss of perceptions, of neurosis and of the deepest fears that live inside each one of us.

I, Captain is all about simplicity in the making of music and complexity in translating it to our audience. This was our main driving force writing the music for the album “Tiid”. The album title is a term found in the ostrobothnian dialect of Swedish that, depending on context, can mean both time and space. The lyrical content is divided into English and Swedish sections, wherever which language can deliver the meaning we are after the best. Within this album, we delve into the psychological and mental hardships life throws at you – mostly consisting of negativity in its absolute form delivered by empowering music, more or less forcing a dissonance on the listener if you choose to take it all in. Beauty is most often surrounded by things which we cannot understand.
Sleeping tree is not here to play games. On their self-titled debut album the three-man-band from southern Germany focuses on the essentials: hard riffs, straight basslines and hammering drums. The extended guitar solos make very clear which musical paths the band is following.
The spirit of early heavy rock hovers over this record. Nevertheless sometimes Sleeping Tree knows how to incorporate the soft tones - only to come back with a huge wall of fuzz. Lose yourself in the scenic lyrics and enjoy a dirty ride!
Sleeping Tree is a three-man stoner-/doom-formation from Augsburg, Germany.
Heavily influenced by groups like Black Sabbath, their music is heavily blues driven and inspired by classic stoner- and doom-rock, but never fails to incorporate a scenic, personal touch.
Australian heavy psychedelic space rockers, Comacozer return with their 2019 full length release titled 'Mydriasis. Since 2015, Comacozer has been unearthing instrumental meditative and journey taking passages and intense dark and murky acid filled jams.
'Mydriasis' is Comacozer's fourth full length release and consists of three epic journeys of hypnotic, liquid, spaced out jams, taking you on a cathartic trip into a nebula and will leave you floating through the other end of the universe. Perfect for psychonauts who want to space-travel and ultimately get crushed by the weight of asteroid. 'Mydriasis' is an album to both meditate to and conquer to. Ethereal psychedelic space in between celestial walls of fuzz.
