Fungal Abyss – “Arc of the Covenant,” from Bardo Abgrund Temple
“Bardo Abgrund Temple might quite possibly be the best psychedelic rock CASSETTE this year. The sound is perfectly mixed – you won’t find a drop of lo-fi here, only beautifully (or maybe beatifically?) recorded drums, sharp guitars and thumping bass guitar (which doesn’t drown out other sounds, mind you). Here is some true psych from the true shamans for whom the psychedelic experience is serious business – those guys are not your usual nice “dudes-next-door” who just happen to play a bit “trippy” sounds during a band practice after Sunday school. These dudes are real fuckin’ psychonauts who know how to pack a punch.”
- Weed Temple
“first-rate modern psych rock by a group that knows how to walk the walk.”
