South African experimental rock outfit Acid Magus unveil the first single off the upcoming debut album »Wyrd Syster«

Pretoria, South Africa based psych/stoner/doom/classic rock band Acid Magus has unveiled the first single »Wyrd Syster« off the upcoming debut album, »Wyrd Syster«, set to release on July 30th, 2021.

After releasing 3 singles in mid 2020, the band solidified their signature psych-laden, heavy groove style and also added a vocalist to their ranks for some versatility. Acid Magus go much darker and heavier on this record and »Wyrd Syster«, the first single is an excellent example of what to expect. A second single and music video will follow in the coming months.

In the faint light that separates dreams from reality, lies from truth and heaven from hell, lives the Acid Magus. Meditating, surrounded by darkness and light, energising the air with electric anticipation. Come forward and listen, stay awhile, there are no sins…

Acid Magus is an experimental rock outfit from Pretoria, South Africa. Doom, stoner, punk, psych, and classic rock are all common themes. As huge fans of the rock greats (Zeppelin, Sabbath), stoner/desert rock behemoths (Kyuss, Sleep) as well as the tripped out psychedelic stylings of modern “psych” bands like Slift. Acid Magus take inspiration from all kinds of great music, spanning the entire gamut from 60s Hendrix/The Doors to Hawkwind and Scorpion at their heaviest, all the way to pretty much everything inspired by Black Sabbath today. All this with maybe a little alt. rock sensibility thrown in for good measure. With an uncompromising, DIY approach to writing, Acid Magus promises to offer up only the best, most impassioned musical works. Long, slow, heavy, soft, it’s all there, and it comes from the heart…
