|PROPHETS OF SATURN RETRONAUTS Limited Vinyl LP
Hailing from the British Midlands, English psych-metal four-piece Prophets of Saturn offer up a heady excursion into the dope-smoking amplifier-worship of Pentagram, Saint Vitus and Electric Wizard, Retronauts is for neither the faint of heart nor mind. Traversing cosmic ley-lines on an antiquarian journey through the lineage of English proto-metal, a lysergic love of Cream, The Beatles and fellow Midlanders Black Sabbath permeates Prophets of Saturn’s sound. A sound laced in equal measure with both the usual and unusual, from a band possessed to the point of lunacy with channelling bad acid trips, occultism and electrified doom through a fuzz box just to get out of it the desired winding riffs and demented wails.
Retronauts is a must-hear for fans of spaced-out, groove-laden metal. The kind committed to analogue tape in the most esoteric of studios and best heard live through vintage stacks.
