Black Mountain's eponymous debut, "a modern heavy psych masterpiece," according to Mojo magazine, came out almost three years ago. In the subsequent years the band has grown in scope and scale, refining their sound while blowing it out to massive heights. So it's no surprise that the word on the new album In the Future from the UK and US press has been glowing. Here's what folks are saying:
WORD magazine -- "Sheady, heavy and brilliantly executed: stoner rock for the masses."
Mojo (lead review by Jon Savage, 4 stars) -- "San ambitious state-of-the world address that delivers on an emotional and visceral level."
NYLON -- "Black Mountain make thundering anachronistic prog-rock. And there's nothing wrong with that."
Elle -- Black Mountain "fashion twisting riffs into a heart of guitar darkness that's all their own."
WIRE Magazine: In The Future "eclipses their previous output and hits a consistent note of righteous force."
Also, check out Black Mountain performing "Stormy High" on Late Night With Conan O'Brien a few weeks ago.
The band is currently rolling out their news songs on a huge U.S. tour. We're doing all we can to get them out to Australia and New Zealand by the end of this year. It will happen! We promise!
