Aquarius Records Review + 2013 June Tour / Record Release + Vinyl

Found out yesterday that Aquarius Records reviewed our first record that we released in late July 2012. The good news was that he had sold a bunch of the CD and Tape Cassette and wanted more. Here is the Review - which can also be found at - then search AntikytherA :

"Another outfit from the Pacific Northwest, trafficking in a sort of psychedelic doomy drift, who are friends of aQ faves Megaton Leviathan, which makes sense, the two groups occupying a similar space, but each most definitely carving out their own distinct sonic niche.
The first track here is a slowly swirling sprawl of pulled apart riffs and layered chordal crunch, crumbling distortion, and softly shimmering textures, starting out almost formless, but gradually coalescing into a churning slo-mo dirge, that manages to infuse its metallic creep with plenty of melodic jangle, the sounds chiming and keening, almost like a more riffy Sunroof!, it's not until nearly the end of the track before the drums kick in, and when they do, it's not so much propulsive or rhythmic as it is abstract and textural, the billowing clouds of psychedelic buzz wrapped around this skeletal doom drum dirge, the sound never really darkening, instead, remaining sort of blissed out, the guitars becoming more jagged and riffy, but the whole thing remaining pretty drifty.
The second track is where things get properly doomy, or as properly doomy as these guys get, the sound immediately exploding into a woozy, lumbering creep, replete with thick buzzing distortion, deep dramatic sung/spoken vox, and plenty of melody, tranced out and mesmeric, sounding a bit like OM with LOTS of guitars, a slow burn psych-doom epic, that slithers swaggers and gradually builds to soaring squalls of tangled psych guitar freakout, slipping from metallic dirge, to parts almost poppy and back again, hooks galore, but buried beneath the crumbling buzz, the song laced with occasional bursts of mathed out chaos, and often locking into tarpit hypno-rock grooves, the whole thing totally epic and majestic, but more psych than doom, more noise/post rock than metal, but with enough of doom AND metal to keep metalheads satisfied. That said, while these guys are self professed psychedelic doom gazers, we could easily imagine folks discovering this from a whole different angle, instead of psychedelic doom, something more like heavy, doomy psych. Maybe there's not much difference, but to our ears, this definitely falls further in the realm of heavy psych, the doominess just adding some serious heft.
Case in point, the 14 minute closer "An Unnatural Light", which takes a sort of Sabbathy almost stoner doom riff, and stretches it way out, repeating it over and over, the track totally tranced out, that riff, all clean guitar, swathed in clouds of cymbal shimmer, and squiggly swirls of psych guitar filigree. It's almost 5 minutes before the song really kicks in, and even then, the guitars remain clean, and almost jangly, a little bit angular, wreathed in FX, the bass sinewy and super melodic, the vocals slipping from deep monk-like chant, to full on wail. Then a few minutes later, the distortion swoops in, and finally, it begins to sound truly metallic, churning, heaving heaviness, but somehow, still sort of warped and tripped out. There's a long stretch where the guitar drops out, leaving mostly bass and drums, which reminds us a lot of Three Mile Pilot, dark and post rocky, from there on out, it's a slow build to an FX drenched, blown out psych guitar finale, all swirls of heavily flanged riffage and pounding dense drumming.
Way recommended for fans of Megaton Leviathan obviously, but really, anyone into heavy psych and psychedelic doom will flip for sure."

Thanks for the review Aquarius! 

Currently: Preparing to go back into the studio in Mid April to record 3+ new songs. One is around 22-23min long, the others between 10-12min long. SToked.

Mayan Psych Doom Mayan Revival! Recording soon + 2013 Tour

Fuck, its been a dark winter thus far. But at this point we start gaining LIGHT in thee North Hemispheres. Through all this cold and dark we have been crafting new music. Some of you heard 2 of the new songs while we were on tour, and the 2 shows we have played here in Portland since - and we are writing another. 3 Songs = a new full album around 40-ish min of material. Planning to Record around the End of February. Budget aside, we will find a way to mark these upon some vinyl! We need a Label! All you Moms, Dads, Friends, & Freaks out there feel free to Donate! Some shows currently in the works for PDX, Eugene, and possibly Seattle, Bellingham, Olympia , Tacoma.

Will be planning a West Coast / South West Tour Soon for April 2013.
David Wolf is with us again on Drums! Thank you Jonathan Nicosia for all you dedication to making this last Tour happen. Much Love.

Thanks to all for the support!

And just because the world did not end like Hollywood would have you believe (and they did with a majority of the populace - at least in MIND thru Fear ) in all their black majik wizardry and deception dose not mean that the Maya were and are a brilliant culture / genius mathematicians and astrologers. Let the laser like focus of the 12-21-12 date show that we have a ways to climb before we live the like of the Mayans level of understanding of this world and the universe which surrounds.

......fuck yeah, we are geeks!

Nov 2012 Tour!

Amazing show @ Rotture last night! Thanks to Ninth Moon Black for driving up from Eugene and playing! Thanks to Rolling thru the Universe and CONTEMPT. & Joel.

Tour since Nov 5th has been very positive! We went on the road with Jonathan Nicosia ( drums ) - whom we had never played at all before. We thought tour was not going to happen when we found out that our original drummer David Wolf had been in an accident ( unharmed!) and landed in jail for a DUI        (bummer) the day before we were supposed to leave. Jonathan was confident that he could step up and make it happen. Oakland was our first time really all of us playing together and it went well. All shows after just got better and better! Thank you Jonathan! Seattle The Mercury was probably our best show of the tour! Every band that night sounded amazing!

Thanks to all our friends and new friends on the road that we played with, that came out to see us and helped us along the way!

Satya Sena Bloodmoon, Dark Earth, Crawlin, Ninth Moon Black, Carrion Cathartid, Wilt, Shadows,RTTU, Maggozler, Death Kings, Fortress, Wild Eyes, Hoopsnake, Seas Will Rise, Parasitic Ejaculation, Phalloplasty, Dead Reckoning, Lost Lands, Silly Creature, Shapeshifter, Hellships, Contempt!

Thanks to all the Venues! James E. Jon of Granted Earth, Joy Von Spain, Therapeutic Noise, Earsplitters, Shawn @ DNA, Elena & Track House, Everyone @ Shakedown.

Thanks to all who put us up and the hospitality!
Thanks to Solo Christian for bring an amazing Video projection on the road with us and being part of the experience

There is Video of the Oakland Show Stork Club, and from the Seattle Show at The Mercury. We will post this sometime soon!

Looking forward to Recording the New album sometime soon and the next tour!
