Tentacula is a psychedelic rock band from Linz, Upper Austria. They combine influences from various genres including garage rock, surf, doom and also find inspiration in old italo-western movies.

Release the… eeehmm… Kraken? Or are we talking about another gigantic cosmic creature both divine and demonic whose arrival means the end of the world as we know it?
Well, maybe.

It might also be seen as a symbol that shows the awe and admiration for both the only flying mammal and possibly the smartest creature living in the oceans. In any case also as a hommage to H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and Sir Christopher Lee’s impersonation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Long story short… whatever you may interpret into Tentacula… The name is their program! And this mystical neologism keeps its promise: dark, reverb-drenched melodies and haunting riffs create a refreshing blend, somewhere between dreamy psychedelic- and dirty garage-rock. Spiced up with a very distinct female voice coming from the queen of darkness herself who summons the gods of Liquid Thunder together with her fellow cultists.
