Saturn's Husk - Marée Noire



Reviving this blog one more time for a little update. A couple years have now passed, and I'm glad to announce that we've gained some experienced, did some live shows, and now, managed to release our 2nd album - Marée Noire. And it's now better, heavier and more interesting structure-wise. That's what I believe, and at the end of the day, that's for you to judge! After giving it a listen of course, mofos!

It's a bit of a concept album in it's general idea. Think of it as a journey, a voyage into the great ocean,. A hunt for the great beast.  A bucnh of men searching for their purpose. Only to be eventualy defeated because of their own arrogance.

Either way, listen, enjoy, comment, and if you like it - support. The album is free to download however!

Saturn's Husk

Hey, so, as I thought it would happen, eventually I moved to actually writing and playing music, rather than just listening and reviewing.

So here's our first effort. We are a doom/sludgy band with a slight taste of psychedelia. We released our first album just prior to New Year. It is a completely DIY record we've recorded at our home studio with Regnar, our bassist, and Armand, our drummer/effects/mastering guy. Hopefully, you will enjoy this!

Those who buy, will also get to enjoy a bonus track, very suitable for drunken parties :D It is bit different from what the rest of the album is like. Anyway, enjoy!

Kingston Wall


I haven't been writing in a while, I know. But I wasn't able to not share this band with you people, that still stumble upon this page. It's a Finnish psychedelic prog rock band from the 90's called Kingston Wall. Sadly - they are split and soon after their guitars/vocals guy, Petri Walli, committed suicide, perhaps because of spiritual problems or the inability to live without the band. Not long before jumping out the window in Helsinki hotel, he made a trip to Goa. You can only speculate, was the trip a last-place-to-visit, or the last attempt to find peace with inner self...

But in the end, we are left here with 3 beautiful albums full of brilliant passages, ideas and melodies. It's the kind of music you put on and listen through the whole album to really make it unravel. Honestly - this is of best progressive rock I've ever came across. Enjoy.

Petri Walli (guitars, lead vocals), Jukka Jylli (bass, backing vocals) and Sami Kuoppamäki (drums, percussion)

Album: Causa Sui - Euporie Tide (2013)


So I've finally got my hands on the latest Causa Sui album review. And man, I gotta say it's looking to be my favorite album of theirs so far! Seems to be a next step in the bands music development. Really glad that they kind of went away from the uber-psychedelic messes they sometimes did. That was exactly the thing that was putting me off of these guys. I mean sometimes when I was putting these guys on in the background, I'd eventually find my self kind of nervous and edgy, and then realize that it's them going into this weird trip. That's usually when I'd turn 'em off. This album was the first one I could listen to from beginning to the very end without skipping or turning it off completely. It's a lot more hippy and mild, thus a lot more approachable and listenable.

So for all of you psychedelic rock lovers: Attached is a youtube video of the whole album, that's the only way to listen to it, the way I see it - go through the whole thing. I kind of never divided it in separate tracks and perceived it as a whole.

Wench


And today's greetings come to you from Sydney, Australia with a pretty damn cool stoner metal band with a touch of southern rock - Wench. I've been returning to these guys for a while now. If you're looking for catchy driving riffs and harsh but cool vocals - you've come to the right place. These guys do it all, and they do it good. We had quite a long argue with a friend of mine about whether these guys are interesting or not, and whether the compositions are cool or just plain boring. So apparently these guys aren't for everyone. To me though, the catchyness of it and cool moves they make really makes it. At any rate, sadly, since their last (and first) release one of the band members died and the band has been in kind of a stale situation. But their first release seems really promising, and I hope they'll get back on track. As of the music itself - I found first 3 tracks pretty golden, with rest being more of a filler. Then again it's me.

Check them out your self and let me know what ya think:
