...electric heat and a house in my aquarium...


Heat and House of Aquarius...two really hot band's with really big cojones...listen...

The Eleventh House, The House Of Aquarius, is the house of group creative expressions. It is the desire to pool and merge the time, efforts and resources of the individual with those of the larger society in order to create something new for the benefit of everyone. Enhancement of the polity overwhelms the desire for self-aggrandisement, the walls of Ego come tumbling down and the individual communes with the totality of the species.
House Of Aquarius was a Swedish band that saw the light of day in 2001. Jamming on a few ideas guitar player Thomas Eriksson brought to the table led to a three song demo that was set free to explore the world. A bunch of pretty nice reviews, airplay and some label interest came out of that demo and shortly resulted in one more demo. Daredevil Records suggested an album release and the band thought it sounded like a good idea and recorded the album in 2002.

The album was released in 2003 and followed by two shorter tours in Sweden and in Germany. The first press of the album was sold out within a short time period while the band was writing and recording for a new album. One song, “Awaiting The Sunrise” found its way on to a compilation released by Daredevil Records, Burn The Streets Volume IV. To release a song in the company of such great acts as Mastodon, Entombed, Alabama Thunderpussy and others, was a great experience for the new, relatively unknown, band, especially since their doomy waltz, on the compilation, was noticed and praised by several critics.
Unfortunately the band couldn’t find a way to make ends meet with music, work, bills, life situations and general costs. This led to a last minute cancellation of a tour and sort of drained the energy out of the project.
10 years later, the album “The World Through Blodred Eyes” is re released by Electric Magic Records. This time on limited vinyl formats, probably the only proper way to enjoy this fuzzy-retro-rocking-four piece from Sweden.


"Awesome and powerfull voice combinated with a rank guitar sound mixed with nice rhytms...sometimes like DOZER or absolutely favourite song "UNHOLY"...this song will go down in history and hopefully soon there will be a tour to...House of Aquarius rock's!!!"

The guys in HEAT have been around in several bands for the last years, among them names like The Hara-Kee-Rees or Samsara Blues Experiment. So you bet they definitely know how to rock out and roll over with their hefty dose of 70s Rock. And there´s no need to become nostalgic. It is 2012 and they´re here to stay with an energetic Blues-drenched mixture of early Sabbath, Zeppelin, Jerusalem, whatever... Pull a name from your Classic Hard Rock collection, they have it all.
