...Persil...

Persil Booking
proudly presents
LESBIAN
(Seattle, Usa - Important, Holy Mountain Records)

The return of Seattle's masters of progressive - psychedelic metal to the old continent,
with a new monumental record by the name of Stratospheria Cubensis.
Lesbian brutalize your ears early on and then sporadically across the record, but it seems the focus here is on slowly,
surely guiding the album into something decidedly more introspective, technical and psychedelic by the time the needle lifts.
It’s an album that shows what Lesbian are capable of and the truly unique viewpoint they have on heavy music.
 It’s as if Stratospheria Cubensis is an exercise in restraint and purpose for the band as they intelligently fuse style and experimentation.
It’s an album brimming with ingenuity, depth and mastery.
Leave the bong—drop out of life with this record in hand.
All details below

Featuring ex members of
THE ACCUSED // ASVA // GOLGOTHAN SUNRISE

New Record : " Stratospheria Cubensis " Important Records 2011



"Stratospheria Cubensis picks up where 2007''s Power Hor (Holy Mountain) left off.
The album takes the band and listener on a darker and more elaborate optimisitc prog-doom journey,
each track telling an epic pychedelic story using myriad genres, styles, and timbres.
Seldon Hunt''s impressive artwork richly supports the albums themes that the band describes simply as "mushrooms in the sky with diamonds."


Recorded and Mixed at London Bridge and Aleph Studios Seattle by Randall Dunn (Master Musicians of Bukkake - Earth - Boris - Sunn O))))
Mastered by Mell Dettmer at Sinister Kitchen

Live @ Roadburn - Tilburg, NL (2008)

...meet buddha...

Buddha Sentenza
Germany
Stoner Rock/Psychedelic

They began in November 2008, her musical outpourings of adding structure and following the aspect of woe, the informal, open and spontaneous music-making, still cultivated and made an integral part of their program. Their sound that is both modern rockbands (Stoner-space-grunge) and by the sounds of older guitar psychonauts (of Pink Floyd via Black Sabbath to Motorhead) influenced. Due to the diverse instrumentation and the use of digital sounds they weave a flying carpet of sound, on which you settle down and relax for a moment before one can be in the next moment takes on an exciting journey into uncharted realms.

...ATTACK OF THE GIANT SLUG...

GYPSY CHIEF GOLIATH 
CANADA
BLACK VULTURE RECORDS
STONER ROCK

"Born from the ashes of their old bands, these musicians helped pave ways in the Canadian stoner rock scene. Now serious about making no b.s rock and roll music the members: AL the Yeti Bones (legendary doom bands: Georgian Skull, The Mighty Nimbus, Mister Bones), John (KEEF) Chris (Salem Saints), Dave (Blood Runs Cold) and Adam (Georgian Skull) have decided to form a pure rock and roll band that dances on the edge of their stoner rock roots as well. When Gypsy Chief Goliath officially became a band, the vibe was electric. This band is going to kick your butt. Now loaded with a harmonica player full time in Brodie Stevenson, the band is hot and in the pocket. They are tight with 70's laced grooves, integrated jazz rhythms, with blistering solos, and harmonies the likes which only Thin Lizzy could provide. After being a band officially for one year, the band has already performed with some of the biggest acts in their genre, ie...Cancer Bats, Blood Ceremony, Sons of Otis, Bison BC, Barnburner, Fiftywatthead, White Cowbell Oklahoma to name a few. GCG also has a debut album being recorded in the winter currently, alongside their long anticipated DVD documentary "Its A Walk in the Mist", the band seems to be carrying themselves in the way that depicts them exactly the way they really are. RAW and the real deal. This is a group that is made up of, perseverance, power, experience, most of all drive. This could seriously be your favorite band ever."


Al "The Yeti" Bones (a.k.a Alex Petrovich) is a musician first and foremost. He has been apart of the global Stoner Rock scene since 1999. In '99 he formed Mister Bones, released 4 albums under the Montreal record label Obskure Sombre Records. Was featured in the book "Gigs From Hell", toured North America from 2000-2004. In 2004, he joined members of Sixty Watt Shaman in a new band called The Mighty Nimbus. He permanently replaced Erik Larson (Alabama Thunder Pussy) on guitar. After touring across the U.S in 2004 included was a performance at the Emissions From The Monolith Festival in Youngstown Ohio, that included the St. Vitus reuion between The Hidden Hand set, and Debris Inc. (which also featured Jimmy Bower on drums from Down.) A year later in '05 The Mighty Nimbus would travel yet again across the U.S this time in support of three legendary metal bands: Entombed, Crowbar, and Pro-Pain. This was for Philadelphia's Candleight Records U.S.A. Released two albums.


In 2006, he formed the beast that was, Georgian Skull and was signed to Italy's Scarlet Records, distributed globally through SPV Records (Motorhead) via Scarlet. Scarlet was recently inked a deal here in North America with Entertainment ONE and Georgian Skull will be officially available this year in North America to buy. 55 date tour across North America, that lead them into news across the web regarding what they were doing. Quickly the band regrouped and booked 3 months of touring across Canada. Released one official album which featured the cover art by Vince Locke (artist for Cannibal Corpse, Cephalic Carnage and the Histrory of Violence graphic novel.) A member went to rehab and the band disbanded from there.

In 2009 he formed present band Gypsy Chief Goliath. Unsigned but best outfit to date. 6 members including a harmonica player, and a new record soon to be released under a new label signing as well.

It's time for  "A Walk In The Mist" here

...ZODIAC...

ZODIAC
Stoner/Psych

Once Drummer Janosch Rathmer (Long Distance Calling) started jamming with guitar-wizard Nick van Delft in 2010 both decided that the songs that rose from their sessions had to meet the ears. So they soon joined forces with Stephan Gall (Guitar) and Robert Kahr (Bass, Organ) (both play also in Rocketchief) to form the bluesdriven, heavy and sometimes psychedelic rock-formation that should go by the name of ZODIAC.

"The four musicians combine a longtime experience in the game and a common will to create interesting music. You can hear the influences of the classics: Zeppelin, Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and Maiden just to name a few. "

ZODIAC’s songs live on their performers’ passion for handmade, pure and inspiring music. Willing to bring their tunes to the people, ZODIAC want to play live as much as possible. This urge already allowed them to share the stage with Graveyard and Church of Misery — but they want a lot more! And now that the first five songs found their way to the recording studio (you can hear the results at this very moment) it is time to set the course...

...strange tunes from outta space...

 SWORD OF TEXAS
EXPERIMENTAL SPACE DOOM


 Alone in the heat of the night - with no entertainment other than a 5-string bass, a 4-track recorder, beat software, and an old keyboard leaning up against the wall - Schmoog climbed out of the heavy sludge, waved his way through the thick smoke, and ripped the bong once more. He knocked back a shot of gin and proceeded to declare, "that was smooth," upon exhaling the toke.


From the depths of downtown Hamilton, Ontario, arises a young man with a rightful vengeance against the world. Schmoog Lebowski - founding member of 13 Bags of Dick - pulls you into his control with powerful, sludgy, sometimes-jazzy riffs and dark, disturbing lyrics. The sound of his new solo effort, Swords of Texas, has been described as if the Sex Pistols beat up the Doors and stole their gear, then had a jam session with Frank Zappa. Various contributors have performed live alongside Schmoog in Swords of Texas, however he is the force and mind behind the band. Considering he has engineered and produced music on 8 album releases under the name 13 Bags of Dick, and a Swords of Texas 5-song EP via bandcamp.com as of New's Year Day 2012 - not to mention his witty on-stage banter - it's no wonder why he headlines the shows he performs.

...interview with dave...

 
 ...David Eering from THE MACHINE...
 
I know THE MACHINE since the first album, I have followed your style how it transform. I think "Solar Corona" is the album with the biggest cojones.
What do you think about the sound changes in these 5 years?

It’s actually four years and a bit I guess hehe… but yeah it changed. That’s only natural, the first album was recorded when Hans was in the band for two months you know. It was sort of a try for us to be honest. After that we jammed a lot, which resulted in Solar Corona (half of it was jammed/written in the studio). Drie is much more composed and structured, also a little bit more rocking I think. It’s good to keep evolving and not to make the same album again and again. Do you like the cojones in our sound? Prepare for our upcoming album then, we never exposed our balls like that before hahahaha.

The Machine released three genius albums (Shadow of the machine, Solar Corona and Drie). Will another follow soon and what can you say about it?


Yeah the next one will be called “Calmer Than You Are” and it’s almost finished (mixing/mastering etc.). It’s quite different again, it has more shorter/straightforward hardrocking songs too with more vocals, but it’s also a little bit more progressive ‘cause we sometimes abandoned the standard 4/4 time signature. 7 songs, 46 minutes so it will fit on one LP. I hope it will be released somewhere in February/March next year, out on Elektrohasch again. Some of our jamming/noodling fans might be disappointed because there’s less of that this time, but it at least will be different. We want to keep challenging ourselves by making a different album every time, but still leave the typical The Machine sound in there. The best thing is that this goes naturally, I mean, we don’t force ourselves to write different songs. It’s a natural process. We’ll see how the audience/fans react to it. The most important thing is that we like the result and playing the songs live.


  
What inspires you while songwriting? What would you say is the hardest part about it? Whats your method?

It’s difficult to say what inspires me and the other guys. It’s rock and roll you know? We just have to play music. There’s also not really a method we use. I can bring in a riff or a song idea I came up with at home, we jam to that and we see what happens. Sometimes it’s Davy or Hans coming with a cool idea on drums or bass and we just jam to that. Other times we just start jamming out of the blue, something magical happens and we suddenly have a song, structured and everything. That’s the best part to me of playing with these guys: we all got so used to each other that even the smallest signs during a jam can mark a change or switch to a next part of the song. The hardest part to me personally is writing the lyrics and fit them into the melodies/making them the melody. And then remember the words hahaha. I started doing this at Drie, paying more attention to the singing and melodies, which was quite new to me. It sort of became fun to do so I did it even more on the upcoming album, Calmer Than You Are.

16 minute long songs, 10 minute-long solos...do you play everything exactly right or do you improvise sometimes?


It’s a combination of both. Especially with those long solos, I have certain themes that were composed and are the backbone of a solo section in a song. These parts also come in handy as a reference point for the other guys, this way everybody knows when to switch to a different part of the song. In between these points I like to improvise, this keeps it challenging and fun for me to play. Especially our songs Jam no. Pi/Phi/Psi only have the main riff as a constant factor, all the soloing on these tracks is always improvised.

Which song of yours do you like playing live the most?


During the last 16-shows tour we played a new song called “Sphere (… or Kneiter)” which I really like to play live. Besides that one First Unique Prime is always nice: sometimes we open a show with it, sometimes we end a show with it and sometimes it’s somewhere in the middle of the setlist hahaha. At the moment I actually enjoy all the new songs the most, ‘cause they’re still fresh.

How long do you play guitar and what kind of equipment do you use and makes you horny?


I got my first acoustic guitar at 10, my first electric at 14 but started to tune it and take it seriously when I was about 17, which is ten years ago now. I have like 8 guitars, a bass and a sitar but use my Ibanez Artist from 1980 as my main guitar now, which basically is double cut Les Paul. My backup/second guitar live is always changing from a humbucker-ed Telecaster to a SG to my recently bought 1974 Pearl Custom Les Paul (cheap Japanese copy but it plays really nice). I have 11 pedals on my pedalboard, including my custom made Lava Machine as a booster/overdrive/fuzz (by Black Effect Pedals). I use two big heavy single channel amps, a Sound City from around ’74 (which is being converted to a Hiwatt 100 Custom right now) and a Matamp GT120 of the same age. One amp goes into a Hiwatt 4x12”, the other is going into a new cab I finalized yesterday. It’s an 8x10” basscab, but I built some other speakers into it. It’s now a 2x15”+2x10” bass cabinet and it sounds heavy as hell hahaha.
I cannot wait to start using this beast live. All this stuff makes me horny by the way, that’s why I play guitar!



 
What do yoe prefer Dio or Ozzy on Black Sabbath? What do you think about the Reunion?

As much as I like Dio and besides the fact we should have named him The Boss instead of the Springsteen dude, I have to go with Ozzy. To me, the one and only Sabbath is Iommi, Osbourne, Butler and Ward. Don’t know about this reunion though. The last one they had with this original line-up was in 2005 and I was happy as a little boy that I got the chance to witness the original Sabbath live, all the little mistakes didn’t matter because it was fucking Sabbath on stage together you know. Don’t know in what condition they are now and if they can still do it, the future will tell. I have absolutely no problem with them cashing in again, I mean it’s their legacy so go ahead. If it’s affordable I’ll go and check it out. At least it’s all of the original members together on stage, quite different from The Reunion of a desert band which made everybody so excited earlier this year…

Which type of music or band do you think is so bad that it should be prohibited?


Hahaha that’s a tough one. I like a lot of music and a lot of styles so yeah… Even the really bad ones shouldn’t be prohibited because it guarantees you a laugh or two! But I think we can do without The Eagles hahahaha.
Except for Hotel California of course.


Whats your favourite albums in this year 2011?


To be honest, I didn’t buy or checked out a lot of new stuff this year, I mostly bought older records from the 70’s and other pre-2011 music. The new Roadworks live record from Motorpsycho was released this year, I got that one and liked it. The new stuff Causa Sui keeps spitting out is cool, I like their krautrock stuff. Oh yes, Aum from Seven That Spells is amazing (they’re assholes by the way hahahaha, I love you Niko and Jerry). Chances are I’m forgetting something here though, I really suck at this “list stuff”.

What do you think about the UP and Smoke Tour Vol.3, how was the tour for the band?


The tour was amazing, really. It was our first big tour, playing 16 shows in a row and traveling in a nightliner. It was a real personal highlight of 2011 to me, since it’s Christmas now it’s a good moment to evaluate this year
J. I think we did a good job at promoting ourselves to a bigger audience and even more important, learned some new things as a band. You cannot do anything else than improve from playing 16 nights in a row I guess. We changed the line-up every night which was cool, everybody had their share of opening and closing the evening. Sometimes we had to start really early because it was a night with four bands, so it was a five headed audience haha. Even if there’s only five people you have to give everything on stage.

What moment or concert do you think was the highlight of your rock career until now?


To me personally this was the entire aforementioned tour. Besides that, to name just one show, it’ll probably be our gig at Burg Herzberg Festival earlier this year. There were I guess about 2000 people enjoying our stuff to the max, which was really unexpected and really amazing. I think we played over two hours and nobody got bored haha.

 



Last and most important question: Which advice can you give all the young and unknown guitar out there?

Do whatever you want to as long as it makes you happy, stay true to yourself and experiment a lot. Rock and roll!!
