20.6. DANAVA / MIRROR QUEEN / HIGH BRIAN

danava_logo1

There are many paths to the jeweled gates of liberation: possession, ecstasy, sacrilege, heresy. Paradox subjugates ego in the transcendent thrust toward the eternally expansive. The star studded spacecraft known as Danava, dispatched as it was from America’s rainy northwest coast, emerged on the midnight horizon as a shining symbol of freedom in sound.

Critics have done their best to identify this flying object with all manner of convenient but ultimately meaningless qualifiers and all have missed the mark. This is not “stoner rock”, even if the pilots are probably stoned. This is not “progressive rock”, for the boundless soul thwarts gentrification. This is not “space rock”, although their heads are full of meteor dust their boots still waltz in the gutters of Whitechapel sin. This is not “retro rock”, because tomorrow calls even as the third eye glances in reverse to hail electric ancestry.

Armed to the teeth with Orgone amplification and mesmeric Luciferian aether, the technicolor demon people have risen from primordial depths to dispel all curses and sever all bonds.

NYC volume dealers Mirror Queen take guitar rock by force on the ominously titled Scaffolds Of The Sky. The band’s driving music accelerates at the distinct point where NWOBHM and heavy Prog Rock intersect; a direct and definite delineation of an era when urgent metallic sound was the order of the day.

Mirror Queen´s twin-guitar harmonies and rhythmic gallop recall early Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, while its hook-laden, timeless riffs and instrumental fireworks reference cherished champions UFO, Blue Oyster Cult and Captain Beyond. Scaffolds Of The Sky is a modern day collection of laser-focused, lights out songs that carry the listener across a myriad of musical thresholds, each at once, time-honored and top-notch.

High Brian from Graz, Austria are very much into jamming and analog recording. They are one of those new bands that play retro psychedelic rock, but are really good at it.
