Keeping it loose, keeping it structured enough to be able to trail off the path only to gain control again only to lose control & so on & so forth…
Hailing from San Diego, California with former members of the rockin’ Rocket From The Crypt, Black Heart Procession and Nebula and a guy from Tony Alva’s skate team, Earthless is the cream of the psychedelic rock crop.
Amalgamating a love of Black Sabbath’s fuzzy, ominous proto-metal, Blue Cheer’s gritty drive and Jimi Hendrix’s penchant for drawn-out jams steeped in blues riffing, Earthless delivers the stuff only altered states of consciousness can realise.
New Jersey’s Chris Kosnik, Finn Ryan, and Bob Pantella first started plotting their musical careers back in the mid 90s influenced by 70s rock and progressive groups ranging from Black Sabbath to Parliament Funkadelic. Simultaneously all three members where already playing for major labels in separate bands: Godspeed (Atlantic), Monster Magnet (A&M) and Core (Atlantic). The Atomic Bitchwax slowly evolved for 15 years as a players band with the enduring vision to “play what you want”.
Their fifth full length Album will be released in Summer 2013 via Tee Pee Records.
Influenced by such 70’s legends as Hawkwind, Deep Purple, UFO, Blue Oyster Cult, Captain Beyond, the rockier sides of more recent outfits such as Motorpsycho and Swervedriver, as well as the best of the current heavy bands, Mirror Queen aspire towards psychedelic hard rock of the highest order.
Together they transcend the sameness of much of today’s stoner scene, blasting the audience by including songs with the volume and adding hooks to the timeless riffs.
