Melbourne psychedelic drone rock sextet's self-titled debut LP. It had been a labour of love, recorded over a sprawling 2 years with production from Ricky Maymi of The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Welcome to the sonic bazaar! "The Black Heart Death Cult" debut LP is a beautifully constructed piece of gloomy verb-soaked psych rock that shifts seamlessly between tracks & styles and a real 60's sensibility of melody underpins it all to reveal some deft song writing, skilful musicianship & quality production. Droney psych mantras, sonic opiates & space-glazed kaleido fuzz jams for the all too new dark age. Generous application of the volume dial is recommended.
The album is a brooding, gloomy beast that never sits still as it trips effortlessly from the one chord sitar-sling of "Setting Sun" to flute filled space rock of "She's a Believer" then the wall-of-verb gloomgaze of "Black Rainbow" to the psy-folk interlude of "The Magic Lamp before bringing the jams with "Aloha from Hell" & that's just the A side.
The B side is heavier & jammier with the spaced out instrumental "Rainbow Machine", speaker smashing bass fuzzed "Davidian Dream Beam", the fantastical flute-filled "Seven Gods" before completely exploding into deep space with the closer "We Love You".
"The Black Heart Death Cult" hope you enjoy the ride!
