Black Space Riders - s/t [2010]

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Monday, October 11, 2010


Black Space Riders resurrect the ancient gods! Earthbound: Boots covered with dirt! Heavenly insane: heads up in space! Fuzz guitars meet psychedelic space-echoes, between very slow and very fast, between driving and dragging.

The self-titled debut was recorded and produced during heavy snowfalls and arctic frost in the beginnig of 2010 at "die Tonmeisterei" in Oldenburg, Germany. A full-blown, warm, spacious, open sounding recording with many details and a big love for vintage eqipment resulting in a one-hour trip through black and infinite space. A black book of cosmic salvation with 13 hypnotic, heavy, guitar-driven songs between metal, doom, space, psychedelic, and stoner rock. Space-doom, baby!

Black Space Riders are the high priests of a new sect. Kneel down and bow your knees, disciples! Render homage to these black masters of a doomed world and beg for cosmic salvation! They will answer your prayers and ransom you from obligation and free your mind and soul with celestial music from outer space!
