Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS‘ sound has been called “A sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning”, earning it the title of “California’s loudest band”. The group delivers “one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock,” leading to one reviewer stating that the band’s “epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn’t afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return.”
From the Ages is the first new studio album since the release of 2007′s critically acclaimed Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky, the LP was recorded in San Francisco with producer Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs). An hour-long double LP, From the Ages will see an October 8 release date via Tee Pee Records.
Through a mixture of heavy, fuzzy riffs, dreamy melodies and spacey solos, The Heavy Minds create a distinct sound, which is inspired heavily by bands from the late 60’s and early 70’s, as well as by some modern groups, such as The Flying Eyes, Kadavar and Radio Moscow.
THM have released two songs yet, which can be heard on Youtube.
All their songs are and also will be recorded in their small homestudio at the band’s attic.
