• EARTHLESS - Sonic Prayer CD
An endless powerblast of screaming psych guitar wailing over a thunderous rhythm section, Earthless' Sonic Prayer has finally been repressed by Gravity, available again for hardcore stoner/psych freaks to bomb their mind with. I've been hooked on this album all week! Before singing to Tee Pee, Earthless released this acid-guitar feast on the legendary San Deigo hardcore label Gravity (along with another live 10" that is also available again and is listed in this week's new arrivals list). The disc features guitarist Isaiah Mitchell (ex-Nebula), bassist Mike Eginton (Electric Nazarene) and drummer Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket From The Crypt/Hot Snakes/Clikitat Ikatowi) playing two massive jams of heavy-ass psych rock that total a whopping 42 minutes, which means that each of these tracks features zonked-out extended playing that takes Mitchell's awesome Hendrix-style guitar playing way, way out into freeform psych guitar dirges and wah-wah loaded electric guitar trance states laid out over the massively pounding backbeats busted out by the Rubalcaba/Eginton rhythm section.
