It was nice to be able to see the surviving dependent Kyuss (Kyuss and Garcia play Kyuss Lives) since 2010 again on stage. After very many sick storys, bass player change, about right and management bonuses and some dispute, they have really managed to forge a new album...this guys will ever appear a new album...They are back...Strong as ever!!!
Fuck Yeah!!!! 

The Intro starts...the first seconds of the album...1 minute voltage building tones and than...

We know this song already, as the stream was released I had a big grin all day long...
Kyuss are back and especially on this song you can hear that.

Hot air,desert sand and a bottle of whiskey...a smooth rhythmic beginning, John Garcia and his burning throat networked with a driving melody with many fine licks by master bruno and the typical brant bjork drum style...

This song would fits perfectly to the album "Blues for the Red Sun"...this song goes slowly on to the top and breaks out like a hurricane, finest stuff for your ears...

Planet 1&2
Brant Bjork together with John on the Vocals...this song reminds me from the structure like a mix between "Greenmachine" and "Gardenia" but let's stop to's a new killer song!!!

This riff is so much in the boogie man style, i'm sure Brant Bjork has written this song...Garcia fits perfectly in this world, melodic, groovy and  moony!

A short stopover at the nearest gas station...smooth jam parts, unfortunately too short!

Stop and go rhythms accompanied by crazy licks made as good as it also homme did...Bruno definitely rocks!!! Thrown mess and totally lathed but it works and let groove your brains...

Here much variety is on offer, beautiful choruses and mange every guitar-driven parts.
Almost a nice little song for Kyuss but also this song rocks from the first to second...

Here comes my absolutely favourite song of  this genius album"Peace"...
This song kicks ass, it's like a little story,there can be several songs but all are beautifully linked together. At 6:20 the song turn 180 degree and grooves slow and fat as we expect this from the gods of stoner rock, this song is to dance or have a nice sexy time...i don't know what you prefer but check out this album because it's good for you!!!

"On the whole a very successful project,there where one can only hope that it will continue to exist. It's really a long time since I was so convinced from the first listen to an album like this and not only because it is the famous Kyuss, because this guys are fucking live their music and that is that what you can here, real musicians, nice people,remain on the ground.
Vista Chino prove similar to Black Sabbath that not every reunion is brown in the pants...

...sludge musical...


Formed in 2010, Garüda is a band that takes its sound from different styles like stoner or sludge, but always with an eye on progressive and heavy music.
Garüda's first EP was 'Labyrinths of Stone', a first aproach of the band in the quest for it's own sound. For this work Garüda had the collaboration of sound engineer Billy Anderson (Melvins/Sleep). Later on, this album got out as a digital-free download edition. 

Next step for the band was thinking on a new project. Finally, in the summer of 2012, Garüda decided to get back to the studio with the technician Ruben Durán and record its next proyect, a split record with their band friends Blooming Látigo. For this new record Garüda has performed 'Raven Prayer' a 12 minutes trip through darkness and luminiscent stages, an eternal search between arcane formula and pagan symbolism.

During this time Garüda had shared stage with bands like Mars Red Sky, Morne, Viaje a 800, Verdun, Your Hihgness, Athmaa, Blooming Látigo, Mentat, Mordida, Deviante, Louded....


"A very varied piece kind of music, but it works great within the whole concept of "RAVEN PRAYER", a really high quality split...!!!"

"Brutal and without regard to losses, this guys kick ass and this the whole full album, i have heard the demo about few month ago and the first impression was very good but her debut album still surprised with more pressure and power. "SIN NOMBRE" is a piece of finest sludge, a must have for all music enthusiasts of the harder front out there!!! Very great ear cinema!!!

proudly presents the new products of 

All bands are available to buy here
Stoner Rock

Thanks a lot, that GOOGLE is your friend at the web....

So with it's help, i found out that the bands name is DOUGE, that they come from Italy, and the name of the album simply is “D”. The Artwork of the CD is a mystery for itself!!

But the music is Stoner Rock at its best. Nice guitar parts with ass kicking solos, and sometimes a bass orgy...

From groovy to dark there's a lot of atmospheres in “D”. And the Voice reminds me sometimes of classic Hard-rock bands... Interesting and really worth to be heard.

Psych Rock

The CD starts with a classic French Song called “Poupée de cire". The whole Album is in the mood of good old Psychedelic Rock... Sometimes it reminds me of Pink Floyd Album “Piper at the Gates Of Dawn” or Iron Butterfly...

With a mixture of old fashioned Organs and guitar distortion, and a perfect matching bass playing, the complete Album is a bless for everyone who loves the good old Psychedelic 60ies!!

Take a stroboscope and a oil lamp in your living room and let run DELIRIO DEI SENSI!!

A TRIP!! ;)

Desert Rock

Man... this Quest was really hard too, to find out what's behind this Band name and this long Album title. This Italian Band with an exotic name, plays desert rock. This is, what the music itself shows me ;)

The Album includes 9 Tracks full of genre typical songs, and reminds me of classic Desert / Stoner Rock bands like QUOTSA, KYUSS and FU MANCHU.

But there is a unique touch in it, so HERBA MATE forms a kind of own sound with this Album...

...purple suns and green moons...

Stoner Metal

Purple Suns are a rock band from Neptune City, New Jersey. The project started as a conversation outside of a grimy punk rock show, and spawned into a furious trio which has played from the basement to the city in less than 6 months. It is a trio consisting of Jay Hernandez, formerly of What About Frank on Guitar/Vox, Tanmay Buch, of A/S/L, on bass and Jon Troncone, of Overstand on drums. The vision has been to blend chaos with peace, noise with harmony, and the ugly with the beautiful.


"A young and dynamic band with a lot of influence of different kind of music, it's no pure stoner rock but also no standard rock band, PURPLE SUNS rock the shit out of your head and this with only four tracks...Baaaammm!!! I think they in a transformation and have not yet discovered their true strength but i'm sure they will do it soon, maybe with the new album...see ya soon my purple firends..."

...more dark tunes...


Electric Taurus formed in 2010 as a recording project by Matt and Rob before evolving into a full gigging band.
After various member changes throughout 2010/2011, the line up settled down with Mauro Frison (Alternative 4) on the drum stool.
In April 2011, Rob left the band to move to England. Over the next 4 months, Matt and Mauro kept on writing songs as a duo and came up with a totally new set of gloomier and doomier songs.
September 2011 saw James Lynch joining the band as bass player. Matt then took up vocal duties and this formation started the recording of their first E.P.
In May 2012, Electric Taurus was offered a record deal for their first album by Italian indie label Moonlight Records. The album Veneralia was recorded in July and will be released mid-October.
The band is heavily influenced by both the giants of the 60s and 70s (Black Sabbath, Hendrix, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Deep Purple) and the underground bands of the same era (Buffalo, Leaf Hound, Iron Claw, Primevil, Hard Stuff, Captain Beyond).
All this retro fuzz music is then blended with the 90s Monster Magnet, Sleep, Soundgarden, Kyuss, Electric Wizard and Orange Goblin.
