Extreme heavy psych band DEADSMOKE stream entire album ahead of release at CvltNation

"Formidable tones and riffs." -- The Obelisk

"An instant masterpiece of the genre. Being more on the sludge side of the doom spectrum allows for a certain memorable catchiness a la Melvins and Negative Reaction while fully embracing the crushing power of Electric Wizard and Sleep. It’s 100% right on without a single misstep." -- The Big Takeover

Italian dark heavy psych band Deadsmoke are streaming their forthcoming album in its entirety ahead of release starting today at CvltNation. Hear the monstrous and epic Mountain Legacy HERE. (Direct Soundcloud)

Mountain Legacy is an album exploring something fundamental to humanity: ISOLATION. The illusion of silence, which is a natural non-existing concept, is perfectly described by synthesized sounds and noises of the newly acquired band member Claudio Rocchetti (In Zaire). These sounds are missing on the first self-titled release of Deadsmoke, so now the old tracks have been enriched and new ones have been composed providing a consistent psych-disturbed synthesized sound. Six brand new tracks featuring deep guitar fuzz and growling bass take the listener on a journey through the woods, alternating lightly groovy rhythms with sludge-doom cadences. 

The album was recorded live by Fabio at NoLogo, a studio located near Bolzano and surrounded by nature and a cemetery. This location and the inspiring recording room, fully covered in wood, carpets and soft lights, made it possible to arrange the recording as a sort of inspired jamming session, providing feelings of isolation, freedom and nothingness. Everybody experiencing isolation and solitude on the mountain knows that the mind is constantly speaking. With a language made of noises. And the mountain itself is speaking. With a language made of slow, deep, grating, growling movements. This is what we try to represent with this album: a translation of how isolation can be felt. This is a precious legacy. The legacy of the previous album, the legacy of the mountain. 

Mountain Legacy will be available on LP and download on September 29th, 2017 via Heavy Psych Sounds Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
