“I want this to perforate your eardrums, have a fight inside your head and leave a slow burnin’ fire in the darkest part of your mind.”
These are the words of Dave Catching, Mojave Lord, guitarist with Eagles Of Death Metal, Queens Of The Stone Age and co-producer with the band of this release on New Heavy Sounds. Dave’s kick starts the debut album from Sky Valley Mistress, introducing eight tracks of full on hard and heavy stoner rock, guaranteed to nail your ass to the wall from the get-go.
Sky Valley Mistress are 4 young upstarts from Blackburn (Lancashire), UK, full of spit and vinegar who have delivered a ferocious, two fingered hello to rest of the world with »Faithless Rituals«.
In fact, Sky Valley Mistress could easily hold their own against the likes of Jim Jones, Rival Sons, Royal Blood, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or any other rockers – greasy or otherwise.
On listening to level of musicianship and vocal prowess shown on their debut, you can only assume this group young blood’s signed a deal with the devil on their journey to the desert.
The album was recorded at the legendary Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California and like all great rock and roll it oozes the vibe and attitude heard on the record.
As Dave Catching says: “Let it puncture your heart, bleed through your body and electrify your soul. Because this… THIS IS ROCK AND ROLL.”
