...mangy and spooky good music...


DOCTOR CYCLOPS
STONER ROCK/HARD ROCK
ITALY

Doctor Cyclops is a seventies-style power trio playing heavy rock music inspired by a vintage sound, eldest son of glorious Balck Sabbath and of other more underground heroes from the 70ies and early 80ies such as Truth and janey, Sir Lord Baltimore, Captain Beyond, Witchfinder General. Even later and more modern references are warm-vintage style ones: Witchcraft, Firebird, Cathedral, Spiritual Beggars just to say some.

The project was born in 2007 in Oltrepo in a small village called Bosmenso, in the middle of the Appennino mountains. A place where winters are long and quite often really cold. Former members are Christian Draghi (guitar and vocals) and Francesco Filippini (bass), childhood friends who try to push by with their passionated love for music and good riffs. 

Doctor Cyclops’ music is an obscure kind of heavy old style rock, its groove made by a miscellanous heap mix of influences, which go from the progressive to the doom stuff played with a raw and dusty wish.

"Here‘s a new record of the weird and funny stoner band "Doctor Cyclops!Awesome and varied riffs as well as a dark occult atmosphere will await you! The strange album artwork fits to the music like a fist in a face and also the booklet has some really cool pictures in it - I wonder if there’s also a story behind this mind blowing art. The songs are very colourful and invite you to a grooveful and rythmic mood. The jam character of some songs are really cool, including all the great solos and licks. They again proof a solid and heavy world of good italian heavy/psych rock straight through your living room. Listening to them will definitely be worth your time!"
