Los Angeles’ psychedelic doom band Black Prism are set to release their debut 7” single ‘Satan’s Country’ via EasyRider Records on 31 August. Not just for doom-metal fanatics, it’s an epic record for all fans of guitar driven rock ‘n’ roll, stoner rock and good times.

On ‘Satan’s Country’, Black Prism successfully turn out an instant classic in the realm of early 70s Black Sabbath inspired acid rock with a Manson Family aesthetic that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention. An unholy conception of hard rock ritual and cinematic kismet, like a shot in the vein of fellow ‘born-outta-timers’ Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and Kadavar.

About Black Prism:
Formed in 2012, the band is made up of native Los Angelenos that skateboard, ride choppers and raise hell the way that their music does. This is the first offering of theirs and the demo that got the band signed. There will be a full length record to come in the first quarter of 2014 on EasyRider Records, until then you will have to sit tight with this unrestrained release of pure hellfire and heavy rock that has the power to steal your soul if you let it.

Santa Rita – High On The Seas (Aloud Music Ltd, 03/06/13)

Santa Rita
High On The Seas
Aloud Music Ltd
UK Release Date: 3 June 2013

“The essence of this band can be found in their influences of grunge, progressive and space rock. All plunged into melodies and choruses of shipwrecked sirens.”
El Mundo de Tulsa

“The surprise of the night was Barcelona band Santa Rita who demonstrated a seriousness, talent and aggressiveness beyond the point of innocence.”
Final de Trajecte

“These girls are going to make a lot of noise this year.”
This Is Underground

Santa Rita
is a band of sisters, if not by blood then certainly by bond.

Together now for close on five years their journey from Barcelona’s best kept secret to one of the city’s must see bands was bolstered back in 2011 with the release of their debut EP Santa Rita. A storming and stormy rock ’n’ roll riot of guitars and harried drums, wracked emotions and raucous onslaughts of noise. Taking their cue from some of rock’s more clandestine corners with groups such as Sleater-Kinney, Babes In Toyland, Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her, Bangs, The Pillows, and Nirvana, recorded by Sergio Picón it plotted a triumphant course for this, their first full length long player High On The Seas.

The band has never sounded more together than they do right here, best exemplified on opener ‘Báltico’; a building exchange of tune and tirade. A formula that runs throughout the album with quiet contemplations on love and life (‘Mar Muerto’, ‘Necochea’) broken up with heavy and passionate chorus.

High On The Seas is the sound of Natalia Brovedanni (guitar/vocals), Martha Wood (bass/vocals, Ceci Su (lead vocals) and Laura Oliveras (drums) in their element. Produced by Santi Garcia (Toundra, Daniel Higgs, Tokyo Sex Destruction) and mastered by Victor Garcia at Ultramarinos the band remain as aggressive as ever but have recorded an album of unquestionable maturity, and fun. Locked into a schedule of relentless rehearsals and writing sessions – which tested both their personal friendships and musical talents – this is a more complete sound honed from their energetic live shows. The sound of four sirens taking shore leave to plug in, tune up and make waves.

With the album already released in their native Spain, High On The Seas gets an official UK release on 3rd June and will cap a tremendous year that has seen the band pick up fans across Europe and appear at last year’s Primavera Sound.
