23.4. RADIO MOSCOW / CASTLE / PRIMA CIRCUS

radiomoscowlogo
Trends come and go, but the idea of a bunch of guys getting together in a garage and playing the kind of music that makes the neighbors call the cops — that’s forever. And it’s that idea that’s crystallized in the form of Radio Moscow. The power trio led by the Stratocaster genius Parker Griggs have found THE formula: powerful, crunching Sabbathstyle chords and fiery solos that earn the right to be called Hendrixian and plants its flag firmly in the territory where psychedelic rock and cranked-up blues meet.


Parker’s demo caught the ear of The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who produced the 2007 self-titled debut. With « Brain Cycles », their second album Radio Moscow proves that they’re not a cheap time machine but a direct descendant from the golden age of Rock’n’Roll. In 2011, Griggs continued his psychedelic trip with « The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz » released by Alive Records.

CastleLogo

Castle formed in 2009 and released their debut album “In Witch Order” on the German label Van Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album of the Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway, as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer of the Year.” Shortly after, the band signed with Prosthetic in North America and released their critically acclaimed sophomore album “Blacklands,” which earned a nomination for “metal/hard music album of the year” at the Juno Awards (Canada’s equivalent to the Grammys). The band supported the release playing over 200 shows worldwide alongside acts including The Sword, Intronaut and Witch Mountain in addition to appearing at some of the scene’s largest festivals (Roadburn, London Desertfest).

San Francisco heavy metal cultists CASTLE will release their album, “Under Siege,” on May 20 via Prosthetic Records. Recorded at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, Calif. earlier this year with producer/mixer Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Eyehategod) — who also produced their 2012 Juno-nominated release “Blacklands” — “Under Siege” pushes CASTLE‘s unique sound further with the confluence of punishing riffs and melodic passages of haunted, full-blooded madness.

Prisma Circus is a heavy psychedelic rock band based in Barcelona. The trio formed in 2010 by Alex Carmona Blanco on drums and Joaquín Escudero Arce on bass/vocals and the addition of Oscar García Albizu on guitars in 2011, recorded their first full lengh album titled “Reminiscences” during summer of 2013 at Black Pepper Studio (Aka Estudis Ground), avoiding any computer or digital process, all thought to get the warm and natural sound from the 60’s and 70’s classic (and rare) albums.
