Danish dark heavy psych/doom quintet Lucid Grave premiere a music video for »Old Spirit« taken from their latest album »Cosmic Mountain«
Copenhagen, Denmark based dark heavy psych/doom quintet Lucid Grave premiere a music video for the song »Old Spirit« taken from their latest album, »Cosmic Mountain«, out on July 15th, 2022 via Electric Valley Records.
The video is made by Dóri Halldórsson & Amanda Jensen.
The band comments: »Old Spirit« is a heavy psych rock song with influence from the early ’80s punk. The song is about a fast spacy universe in-between two worlds. The song is inspired by the lead singer’s days in the high desert in California. The desert heat is hard on everything and everyone. And the wind still tells stories of the Native Americans, the legends of desert rock, and the military base in the unforgiven sun.
»Cosmic Mountain« is a journey through your favorite drugs of life, the highs and the lows, being chased through the desert and fighting a haze of demons.”
The album »Cosmic Mountain« is available digitally and on four variants of vinyl (Test Press, Solid Yellow, Transparent Red Splatter Black Vinyl, Ultra LTD “Cosmic Edition”) via Electric Valley Records.

Lucid Grave is a dark heavy psychedelic band with stoner-doomy tendencies from Copenhagen, Denmark. Sonically, Lucid Grave is a boiling pot of heavy fuzz rock like Black Sabbath/Coven/Hawkwind and ’80s punk like Black Flag/The Nuns/The Gun Club, all wrapped up in a nice blanket of modern heavy stoner rock and doom. Honoring the howling occult cinema of the ’80s, Lucid Grave finds inspiration in everything that’s heavy, filthy, and free!
They emerged from the underground communal house and punk venue Ungdomshuset in the dying days of 2017. A few months later, in 2018, they released a self-titled demo and spent the next few years playing shows around Denmark with bands such as High Priestess, Cities Of Mars, The Gates Of Slumber, and Heathe, while making more materials as well. In 2020 Copenhagen label Virkelighedsfjern released Lucid Grave’s EP called »Goddess Of Misery«, a venture that was seriously disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak – which meant no shows for a while. That time was instead spent on writing materials for their first full-length album. In 2021 they released a single called »Surfer Bat«, an upbeat ’70s heavy Rock song with a twist of gothic punk vibes and a dash of Latin music. It caught the attention of the Italian heavy psych label Electric Valley Records.
»Cosmic Mountain«, the debut LP of Lucid Grave, is a journey through your favorite drugs of life, the highs, and the lows, being chased through the desert and fighting a haze of demons. The album was recorded live and over-dubbed in just three days at the beginning of 2022. As it was with the previous single, »Surfer Bat«, Patrick Fragtrup was again behind the mixing board for the session, and it is clear that there has developed an understanding between him and the band as this record sounds both huge and fierce without losing any clarity or energy from the group. The project was finished by Shane Trimble of High Reeper at his California studio.
