Today we are sharing with you the Lord Elephant brand new single »Desert Collision«. The single is taken from the band upcoming new album »Cosmic Awakening« and will see the light July 8th via Heavy Psych Sounds.

Says the band: “Imagine a car crash test in the middle of nowhere, waiting for the impact to come! That’s the musical result of »Desert Collision« and the arid mood it brings to the spotlight. In a desert ocean of fuzzing vigour, the slow paced tempo of the song let the power of the chords bring down to the earth the heavy load, indulging in a sabbathian fugue before the massive finale. It becomes heavier and dirtier every second more, ready to crack the speakers and reach the sky through the infinite note!”

With an attraction force worthy of a black hole, their insane instrumental jams stand halfway between the space rock bravura of Earthless or Black Bombaim and the fuzz-drenched, smoked-out doom plundering of Belzebong or Wo Fat. With most tracks clocking in at 5 minutes, »Cosmic Awakening« finds its own wicked balance between soaring bluesy riffs and a barrage of fat-sounding, woolly mammoth-sized grooves ready to shake your backbones underway. Debut album »Cosmic Awakening« will be released on July 8th via Heavy Psych Sounds.

Through the episodes of this sonic journey, the trio experiences different moods and sounds on the way, sailing through the dreamy waves of space and acid rock towards the perilous reef of heavy blues, stoner and sludge metal, finding strength and inspiration in the solid cohesion that binds the three of them. Steady rooted in the metal, rock and blues tradition, »Cosmic Awakening« tries to find its own creative way to melt heavy music and psychedelia, shadow and light, with a focused starting point, but no destination set. »Cosmic Awakening« was recorded, mixed and mastered at Audiovolt Studio, its artwork was designed by Coito Negato.

Lord Elephant was raised by Edoardo and Leandro in 2016, after the split of their previous “napalm blues” band Random’N’Roll and the entry of Tommaso Urzino behind the drum kit. With diversified and complementary experiences, the trio melt its passion for blues, stoner, fuzzy and improvised music into a personal journey of acid psychedelia, graced with heaviness and tasty riffs as well. After almost five years in the work, the debut album seals the final result of the long road made by Lord Elephant in their musical research, finding in Heavy Psych Sound Records the best possible partner to expand their sound as far as they can!

Lord Elephant is:
Leandro Gaccione – Guitars
Edoardo De Nardi – Bass
