COLOUR HAZE - "It's all about playing new, unheard, original music

COLOUR HAZE - „Es geht uns darum, neue, ungehörte, originelle Musik zu spielen“

Colour haze are a phenomenon. For years, the Munich stoner rock band has consistently delivered works of high quality, setting new standards in this genre time and again through new facets. This is also true for the 13th studio album "We Are", on which a keyboard expands the artistic and tonal spectrum even further. Even after more than 25 years, the group still seems far from having reached the end of its possibilities.

Between preparations for the upcoming tour (twelve shows on twelve consecutive days from the end of March), dealing with the limited vinyl edition of "We Are" and all the other tasks as head of Elektrohasch Records and singer and guitarist of Colour Haze, Stefan Koglek found time to answer eclipsed questions about the new album.

LED ZEPPELIN - The last flight of the Zeppelin: the history of "Physical Graffiti" in the

mid-seventies Led Zeppelin had reached its second artistic zenith and documented this in a unique way with "Physical Graffiti", the band's only double album. Until today it is Robert Plant's favourite record with the group, probably also because the formation before and after has never been more expressive and multi-faceted. Released on February 24, 1975, "Physical Graffiti" was the first record in rock history to achieve platinum status through pre-orders alone.

COLOUR HAZE - The Gods Must Be Happy

Twenty years Colour Haze have been on their backs. During this time the Munich band around singer and guitarist Stefan Koglek played their way into the top ranks of the international stoner rock scene with a series of great albums. A position that she consolidates with her latest recording "To The Highest Gods We Know". Between bringing the new generation to bed, the trouble with the local cultural department (which forces the band to leave the building with the newly furnished studio after a short time) and the work for their own record label (Elektrohasch), Stefan Koglek finds the time to chat about the band and their latest studio work.

Now is the time to reap the fruits. For the last studio album "She Said" Colour Haze needed four years. A time when the Munich Stonerrock band set up and got to know their own studio. For "To The Highest Gods We Know" Stefan Koglek and his colleagues needed a little more than two years.

Four for Eternity: Sabbath's "Vol. 4."

"Vol. 4" is perhaps the most underrated album of Black Sabbath by the music interested public. Fans and connoisseurs see it differently, however, because the LP with the low association title is one of the most important in the career of the band that is so decisive for the history of hard rock. The fact that the album was released in September 1972 still borders on a miracle in view of the massive cocaine consumption of the band.

The music of the year 1968

Protest, riots, riots - to this day the legendary year 1968 is regarded as a symbol of the revolutionary spirit of awakening of the sixties. No less his music. But what was actually going on beyond romantic transfiguration in the year that followed "Sgt. Pepper"?
