Medusa1975– Rising From The Ashes
Release date: 2017Apr21
Label: Svart Records
Medusa1975 represents the evolution of Medusa, an obscure proto-metal group out of Colorado formed in the 1970s. Armageddon opens with somber notes, picking up in the middle with a punishing bass/guitar attack. Rage On is a lazy afternoon stoner jam. Indeed, man. Fall of the House of Usher is set to a psychedelic, harmonic mess. Turn To Stone strips it down to fast, fuzzy rock. 9 Circles of Hell (Dante’s Inferno) is full of lustful, gluttonous, greedy, angry, heretical, violent, fraudulent and treacherous drumbeats set to brooding riffs. Another great pick of 2017.
