Bow and respectfully welcome "Solar Corona", album no.2 by The Machine. The unstoppable psychedelic fuzz machine have returned and just like a magician swinging his magic stick these dutch rulers creates magic for the second time. It's hard to pick a specific track as the best song on this seven track masterpiece because the whole album is a magnificent journey into time and space. Along with the guitars, bass and drums there are also djembehs and gong included in the arsenal. "Solar Corona" is more multiple than the previous album with less vocals and more jams, experimental deep dives and hypnotizing bluesy riffings. Mix the best from the late 60's with early 70's stuff, add some desert rock and you get the formula. This concept is timeless and lasts forever!
The first one out is the title track Solar Corona, it starts off with a typical Kyuss riff quickly explodes like a gigantic acid bomb with furious guitar solos, heavy bass lines and great drummings. Caterpillar's mushroom, the forth song on this piece of plastic is based on Djembehs backed by a relaxed soundscapes and reminds me of Lamp of the universe. "Solar Corona" is mainly instrumental but not all of it. Davy, Hans and David has done a great job on the album and i love the sound of the warm and dusty guitars it, gives me a hard on, shit embrace! ...this is art made by true artists. If you digg Electric magma, Colour haze, Datura and Gomer Pyle you will love the remarkable work of The Machine.
2nd full length by The Machine. One of my favorite Psychedelic Jam albums. Let the beautiful riffs take you away!
