ECSTATIC VISION



I've had this on repeat in my car for days.

In  their own words...

"Philadelphia's ECSTATIC VISION weave the guitar heroics of the 70s heavy classics of UFO and Hawkwind with the rhythmic intensity of Sun Ra and Amon Düül II, ECSTATIC VISION are sure to be a huge hit for fans of High On Fire and Fela Kuti alike. Massive riffs vibe seamlessly with deep rhythms to create one of the most original and best HEAVY PSYCH debuts in years!"

I'd pretty much agree with that.

RAWK!!!!!!!
