Here The Captain Speaking, The Captain Is Dead - Flux Capacitor

Strap on your suit, check phasers are set to kill and join
Here The Captain Speaking, The Captain Is Dead on an epic 
quest that will take you from the white-hot explosion of a nebula 
exploding, through to the dying embers of a burnt out black star.

Flux Capacitor is a cosmic trip of mind and music expanding

 themes set to a stoner-groove of monster proportions.
The main thrust of these songs are unstoppable riffs of power
and beauty which are split into 5 chapters. With such a grand
vision, does the music match up to it?

Oh yeah - this should be the album to project this band of
Spanish starmen to greater heights. Heavy rock and stoner
heaviness are the bedrock from which springs the imaginative
and inventive song passages that take you through this exploration
of sounds, aggression and epic story telling.

Doom, modern psych and stoner all play a part in setting
the scenes of sonic mind/spacescapes.

Guitars are chunky sounding with distorted chords give the riffs
extra bounce and vigour. Vocals are sung or chanted to make sure 
the emotion is varied and interesting. There are lulls of restraint 
that drift to a dark, tranquil place before revving back up into 
interstellar overdrive.

I only got this fucker yesterday and it has not come off my player.
Get your head nodding, trip out and break out the bong - groove
your way into the outer cosmos of rock.
