Sonic Flower – Sonic Flower (2003)

Debut release from a new ‘power quartet’ from Japan, formed by a couple of members of the serial killer obsessed doom rock band Church of Misery (CD out on the infamous sludge/grind Southern Lord label). While that band, like Sunn ((o)), Boris, etc, updates the slow and heavy grind of the Sabs, Sonic Flower is apparently their outlet for the heavy 60’s/70’s rock moves of such artists as Mountain, Hendrix or, to choose some more contemporary examples groups such as Nebula or Monster Magnet. While this kind of music is pretty much a cliché, it lives or dies by the riffs and the intensity of the performance, and this has ’em both, more so than any other contemporary take on this type of music that I can think of – they hit you with the subtlety of an 18 wheeler with no brakes. –keep reading in… aural innovations.

Track List:
01 – Cosmic Highway (3:22)
02 – Black Sunrise (4:37)
03 – Astroqueen (3:45)
04 – Sonic Flower (3:39)
05 – Indian Summer (4:42)
06 – Going Down (5:10)
