(A Peak...) Not on label
(Lords...) Clostridium Records
Finnish space rockers Astral Magic are here with two releases. An ep which contains 4 songs, from four future releases of the band, which is released in 40 (!!!) vinyl copies, so hurry up!!
Lords Of Space, however, is a brand new album for Astral Magic, the personal band of Santtu Laakso (Dj Astro) who plays almost everything alone! Lords Of Space is a genuine space rock album based on the space sound of the 70s, but at the same time it is an album that brings out a brilliant freshness. Of course, the question is to have songs worthy of illuminating their (our) intergalactic journey in space. The Chakra Vimana for example is one such, a brilliant space rocket, without vocals and with full effect, the also instro The Fall of Atlantis, a piece that gives me the feeling that I am watching the sunrise of many suns together!! Set on Flames, Cosmic Games etc, are just the space stations that feel the movements of the black holes, the fantastic The Undead is only in the cd (as well as another one)version and finally the song Lords of Space is another one space rock anthem by this band! An amazing space album, it captures in the best and most convincing way that Astral Magic is a great band and Santtu Laakso is one of the Lords of Space music of our times!
