Black Rainbows's new mini album 'Holy Moon' on Heavy Psych Sounds
Italian psychedelic rock band Black Rainbow's new six-song 38-minute mini album sees the trio leave their earlier stoner rock motifs for a sound that keeps with the HEAVY but heads to the stars. 'Holy Moon' offers a deep brew of deep heavy space rock that follows the lineage of early Hawkwind through Loop and The Heads into White Hills, 'Monsters Of The Highway' recalls Monster Magnet and Thee Hypnotics with Gabriele Fiori excelling with his powered Detroit infused leads, 'Chakra Temple' slows things down over an Eastern drone worthy of both Simon House and The Black Sun Ensemble whilst 'The Hunter' adds a heavy Groundhogs boogie edge spiced up for 2013 in a similar vein to Ty Segall and Fuzz. 'If I Was A Bird' lessens the pace and adds a reverberating acoustic guitar as the centre piece to a tune that sounds a little like a distant Jack White vibing out to Jimmy Page. Ending with their big muff ridden '90s sounding take on of MC5's 'Black To Comm' Holy Moon shows how Black Rainbows have grown away from stoner metal into a band steeped in space rock, drones and that increasingly popular early '90s reimagining of Detroit rock.
