Los Angeles based psychedelic heavy rock trio Mountain Tamer stream the first single »Warlock« from their new album, »Psychosis Ritual«, coming out on September 25th via Heavy Psych Sounds.
Says the band: “»Warlock« drops you into combat with a foe who will obscure the truth, break you down, and change the field of battle without a moment’s notice. The inspiration for this antagonist are the imperialist forces that have carved their way through history, changing the narrative of the past and present. The dark current of the Warlock is the world of »Psychosis Ritual«.”
From Heavy Psych Sounds:
»Psychosis Ritual« is the sum of Mountain Tamer’s first decade of exploration into the psychedelic arts. The album takes the band on a journey through the occult rhythms and tones of worlds forgotten. Each track is a new chapter of Mountain Tamer riffing their way into uncharted territory. For this ritual, you are the sacrifice…
Mountain Tamer is Andru Hall (Guitar/Vocals), Casey Garcia (Drums), and David Teget (Bass). »Psychosis Ritual« was recorded and mixed by Salem’s Bend guitarist Robert Parker, with mastering by Mike Tarsia at Sigma Sounds Studios. This recording is the most cohesive and lucid experience Mountain Tamer has yet to offer.
The album artwork by photographer Dillon Vaughn and tattoo artist Derek Pratt only adds to the singular vision of Psychosis Ritual by providing beautifully lysergic visuals that are inseparable from the music itself.
