NEIL YOUNG - The Indomitable

Even as a young singer, as a representative of the hippie generation, Neil Young didn't mince his words. And he has remained the most controversial, sometimes in the best sense of the word uninhibited spirit of rock music: The Canadian, who turns seventy on November 12, shows no signs of age-mild. In the following we show why it is so important that "the old man" is still there.

Lavalampen-Lambada - MEN FROM S.P.E.C.T.R.E. could conquer the dancefloor with a wacky psych sound

The English Spectre means in German "Schemen", "Phantom" or "Geist". In bond movies like "fireball," it was short for a criminal organization. The new bond that the whole world is waiting for even bears the title "Spectre". What could be a better promotion for the five bad guys of the Swiss formation Men From S.P.E.C.T.R.E.? She doesn't need them at all, her sound is hot and authentic enough to take over the world even without a Walther PPK in the touch. It is characterized by a full-fat sixties organ, psychedelic guitar distortions and driving rhythms.

AVATARIUM - Girl With The Raven Mask (4:10)
Album: The Girl With The Raven Mask (2015)
Label/Distribution: Nuclear Blast/Warner

With AVATARIUM, Doom legend Leif Edling (Candlemass, Krux) has built up a fantastic new band where tough lava riffs meet seventies Hammond sounds. But above all, the incredible Jennie-Ann Smith is enthroned, whose gripping blues voice (Janis Joplin sends her regards!) gives you goose bumps. (Review: eclipsed 10/2015)

MEN FROM S.P.E.C.T.R.E. "Claw"

19. October 2015

Of course it's a coincidence (isn't it?) that Men From S.P.E.C.T.R.E. present their new album "Claw" just now, because the new James Bond movie "Spectre" will be released in the cinemas. It's no coincidence, however, that the Swiss band are playing eight new songs, one worthy Bond title song after the other in the style of the late 60s. Already with the first three albums they indulged in this wonderful beat-, garage-, psych- and surf sound with fuzz guitars, three loose-flake melodies, driving grooves and flying organ carpets.
