It was surprising enough when Norwegian psychedelic heavy rockers Black Moon Circle released their second offering, Andromeda (review here), late in 2014, less than a year after making their self-titled debut (review here), but now not only are they following that up less than a year later, but they’re announcing a series of at least three jam-based vinyl releases to come between now and 2017. Nothing like establishing a pattern, and for Black Moon Circle, the intent is pretty clearly to document their progression each step of the way as they continue to move forward.
Studio Jams Vol. I: Yellow Nebula in the Sky is the first in that series, and will release on vinyl next week. The LP is comprised of three jams, on which I believe Scott “Dr. Space” Heller from Øresund Space Collective sits in. Album details follow, courtesy of the PR wire:
Norwegian psychedelic space rock group Black Moon Circle release their third album “The Studio Jams Vol I: Yellow Nebula in the Sky” on vinyl august 14th.
In 2013 Dr Space (from Øresund Space Collective) started to visit and jam with the Trondheim based band. An EP and a full length record, ‘Andromeda’ were released in 2014 with great praise from the underground media.
While, these two records focused on songs, the group of musicians has been having yearly jam sessions and this record, ‘The Studio Jams Vol 1’ is the first of at least 3 volumes of Studio jams to be released on limited edition vinyl records over the next 2 years.
One of these pieces was recorded during the first jam sessions in April 2013 and the other two in 2014.
The material on this record is all about intensity!
Intense heavy fuzzed out guitars, blasting bass and drums and spaced out synthesisers. This is an intense instrumental trip with some killer jamming from the entire band.
