hypermagic mountain

lightning bolt Hypermagic Mountain (Load Records, 2005)

All killer, no filler follow-up to 2003's Wonderful Rainbow, Hypermagic Mountain slams into hyperdrive for a full 57 minute ride. The songs are dense and constructed from an intense three week recording session deep within a psychic sweatbox. The band has blurred differences to any other sound pirates with this record using a primal base and a new musical vocabulary fueled by chemistry-altering volume and kick ass SONGS! Throbbing low-end played on a 300 foot long bass and kick drums the size of Exxon supertankers, all stretched into a triumphant war stomp that all can love. With just bass and drums (a two piece band you see) they have constructed the densest sound imaginable.
