Solar Mantra Sign to Argonauta Records

It’ll probably be a 2020 release by the time we get there, but Solar Mantra‘s full-length debut — whenever it happens — will be made under the regularly-expanding banner of Argonauta Records. I’ve said on multiple occasions that Argonauta have done well in remembering to support native-Italian heavy even as its reach has expanded well beyond its home country, and Solar Mantra represent yet another side of that, bringing psychedelic turns to swinging groove and capping off with a Roman energy that seems to show up regardless of how fast a given song is actually moving. They made their debut last year with a self-titled EP that you can stream below, and while I don’t know if any of those songs will be re-used on the impending long-player, they’d only be welcome if so, particularly if they managed to keep the same bass tone. That’s pretty tasty.

The PR wire brings the signing announcement from Argonauta:

SOLAR MANTRA inks worldwide deal with Argonauta Records!

Italian fuzz rockers, Solar Mantra, have signed a worldwide record deal with Argonauta Records, the powerhouse label and home for Sludge, Doom, Blackened and Stoner Metal bands such as Mammoth Storm, Ancient Vvisdom, High Fighter, Kal-El, Destroyer of Light and many more.

Solar Mantra was born in Rome in 2017. Since then, their deep fuzzy sound creates a unique and powerful experience, taking their ever-growing fanbase on a special trip into a psychedelic wonderland. Countless live performances lead the band along a desert path across Europe to spread its stoner soul all around, Solar Mantra have shared prestigious stages with acts such as Banquet, The Well, Tuna de Tierra, Fvzz Popvli, Fuzzalicious among many more. With their heavy riffs and an excellent psychedelic mood in their sound, the four-piece caught Argonauta Records’ attention and have proudly inked a worldwide record deal. Says Argonauta owner Gero Lucisano:

“When I hear those typical sonorities made of big fuzzy riffs, it’s just a matter of time before I get overwhelmed by the songs of the band. Undefined latitudes of desert landscapes is what the music of SOLAR MANTRA makes you thinking about. And a touch of psychedelic space imagery gives the final mark to the exciting sound of the band. Listening to their songs is like to see an ancient druid surfing across the planets and we really can’t wait to share with you all their new material!”
