Profile: William Jennings of Ghost:Hello

GhostHello

Ohio’s Ghost:Hello recently released a self-titled, two-track EP that’s in the psychedelic metal realm with its nod to the cosmos but shares plenty of space with fuzz and stoner metal as well. Previous to that, the band released a single, “The Mouth of the Gift Horse,” which leaned heavier on punk attitude, sludge, and hardcore. As you’ll read below, a full length is in the works so it’ll be interesting to see how this trio will flesh out these sounds or if they’ll go in a completely different direction. In the meantime, we recently had the chance to ask bassist and vocalist William Jennings our set of Profile questions to get a little background on the band so head directly below to get the scoop.

Profile: L.A.’s Psychedelic Heavy Hitters – Mountain Tamer

Mountain Tamer

If you think of that scene in the ’69 classic Easy Rider, when the group goes on a bad, bad LSD trip, every time you hear or see the word ‘psychedelic’ you’re not alone. I’m right there with you and evidently Mountain Tamer is as well.

This album is full of hefty fuzz, riffs for days and echoed vocals that trick your brain into thinking you’re already on a trip…somewhere……in outer space…….or something that involves a hit….of something. Seriously though, MTNTMR has impressed the hell out of me with their Floydish songwriting skills and satanic biker mentality. We recently sent them our set of Profile questions to learn more and now you get to join in the knowledge. Don’t forget to visit the links contained within to show them and their labels some support!  Continue reading

Album Review: Boss Keloid – “Herb Your Enthusiasm”

Boss Keloid - Herb Your Enthusiasm

Clever album title in Herb Your Enthusiasm but it barely scratches the surface of how clever the UK’s Boss Keloid are on this, their second full length. Mixing monumental doom, sludge, stoner groove and a progressive bent, this album easily towers above their last. The songwriting alone reaches heights the band has been aiming for since the beginning. Not to mention the slick production that has every instrument purring like a kitten. Cookie cutter this album is not, what it is though is a fresh and enthralling take on the genres found within.  Continue reading
