North Italy’s heavy rockers Oreyeon share a scorching hot rendition of Slo Burn’s »Wheel Fall«, taken from their upcoming »Doom Sessions Vol. 8« split EP with psychedelic doom unit Lord Elephant on Heavy Psych Sounds.
About the song, Oreyeon says: “»Wheel Fall« is an obscure track from the coolest Kyuss-related project ever, Slo Burn. This is our tribute to this short-lived band, we also included in this song, the solo section of »Muezli« from their amazing debut EP..enjoy it!”

The eighth chapter of the »Doom Sessions« series features the exquisite heaviness and riff-tasty swirls of Florence, Tuscany’s psychedelic doom trio Lord Elephant and Northern Italy stoner rockers Oreyeon. For the first time in the series’ history, both bands are presenting a special cover song alongside their unreleased track: while Lord Elephant chose to spice up and tune down Link Wray’s 1962 classic »Rumble«, Oreyeon added their trademark 90s grungy touch to Slo Burn’s anthemic »Wheel Fall«. Two more reasons to dive into this great new split record and add it to your growing stoner and psych vinyl collection. Listen to the debut single with Lord Elephant’s »Rumble« at this location!

Formed in 2014 by members of Woodwall, Mexican Mud and Army Of Angry Youth, Oreyeon made an impression within the heavy rock scene with their debut album »Builders Of Cosmos« in 2016. Their inspirations go from Black Sabbath to The Sword: with monolithic guitars, huge bass frequencies, and intricate vocals, Oreyeon knows how to please every classic and stoner rock mind! On their sophomore album and Heavy Psych Sounds debut »Ode To Oblivion« (2019), the band drifted away from the usual stoner rock clichés into a more elaborate and melodic style, filled with complex vocal harmonies, richer melodies and heavier sound. Their third album »Equations For The Useless« was released in the summer of 2022 on Heavy Psych Sounds.

With an attraction force worthy of a black hole, Lord Elephant’s 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. Through their sonic journey, the trio sails 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, their HPS debut album »Cosmic Awakening« tries to find its own creative way to melt heavy music and psychedelia, shadow and light, and 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.
