I didn’t set out to make a Halloween themed episode but this one just came together seemingly on its own. I just kept finding new psychedelic and stoner tracks that had Halloween thremes so I decided to go with it. In the first set is Catatonic Suns with “Deadzone”, then “Death, Pt. 1” by Lomma and finally “Demons in the Night” by Svartanatt. But what would Halloween be without a healthy dose of doom? We move onto screaming into the void with Sloth, followed by Sonic Demon, Orbiter and Goren.

The last set opens with “Danse Macabre” by Dreamweapon. I remember when I was in grade school our music teacher played “Danse Macabre” by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens and I remember being kind of disturbed by the whole idea of the dance of the dead. Dreamweapon takes this theme in a much more hypnotic direction. A “reconstruction” of Fourth Pass Over the Graveyard by The Black Delta Movement, and tracks by Electricque Junk, Stepmother and Legal Noise round out this episode. Trick or treat!

The Black Delta Movement

From Bandcamp: “Kingston-upon-Hull outfit The Black Delta Movement’s new ‘In Acetate’ EP is a companion piece to the band’s recently released ‘Recovery Effects’ album.
Serving up eight tracks of immersive, groove-heavy psych-rock, The Black Delta Movemen’s second album ‘Recovery Effects’ was released in April 2023 and is already on its second vinyl pressing. Nearly five years in the works, it found band leader Matt Burr recruiting Little Barrie’s Barrie Cadogan, Lewis Wharton and Tony Coote to play on the record and The Heliocentrics’ Malcolm Catto on production duties.
The incoming ‘In Acetate’ EP is made up of three previously-unreleased tracks from those sessions (‘(This Is) Slow House’, ‘The Landgrab’ and ‘303’) and two remixes courtesy of UNKLE and Ill Japonia – aka Taigen Kawabe of Bo Ningen, who TBDM did a short Dutch tour with earlier this year.”

TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Recovery Effects?
BDM: Recovery Effects was influenced by a whole host of different factors so it’s hard to say which the strongest was. I suppose it’s best to say that the biggest influence came from Malcolm Catto who produced the record. I’ve admired his work with The Heliocentrics for a long time so being able to work with him and learn from the way he makes music was really inspiring. Plus Barrie Cadogan, Lewis Wharton and Tony Coote’s influences whilst they played on and added to the record too – the way they play really pushed me with my own style and technique. The album wouldn’t be the same without the five of them.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
BDM: Again, it’s quite hard to say a single record that changed my life but from The BDM’s perspective I’d probably have to say Passover by The Black Angels. I first saw them supporting The Black Keys at Manchester Academy in 2006 and from the first song when they opened with Empire my whole musical outlook changed. My dad bought me the album as soon as we got home and my path in music seemed to make sense purely down to that album. The BDM probably wouldn’t exist without it.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
BDM: There’s a long road for us now with Recovery Effects, we’re currently planning a number of tours and I’m even starting to work on the third album now that I have a bit of time to do so. Fuzz Club’s support with the release has made things so easy and I’m excited to tell everyone about the things we have in store. Some of them I still can’t really believe are happening!

#HardRock #ProgRock #PsychedelicRock

From Bandcamp: ”Last Days On Earth” is the third studio album by Swedish Rock band Svartanatt, and follows their 2016 self-titled debut as well as their 2018 sophomore full-length ”Starry Eagle Eyes”. Recorded in Svenska Grammofonstudion, Last Days On Earth offers 11 new cuts of hard hitting retro rock. While continuing building on Svartanatt’s solid foundation of ’60s and ’70s influenced rock, the album showcases even more varied and captivating soundscapes than before, where melodic organ and guitar arrangements interplay with a tight, rock solid rhythm section, all topped with songwriter Jani’s unique, expressive vocals.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Last Days On Earth?
The world situation, all the humans who has predicted our future and been trying to warned us. We just wanna be world friends forever.
Svartanatt: What record changed your life?
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Svartanatt: We will release a new song 29/9 called “mad stranger”
Next show will be 14/10 in Örebro
And then a the new album 3/11

#Doom #HeavyPsych #Stoner

From Bandcamp: “Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, SLOTH offers 70’s style fuzzy, psyched out, funeral paced occult macabre-rock influenced by the likes of Electric Wizard, Windhand, and Wicked Lady.
AP (Ariel- Guitar/Vocals)
A (Andrew- Drums)
J (Justin- Guitar)
From beyond the grave and for your sonic pleasures…”

TMODM: What has had the strongest influence on your music?
AP: Horror, life, death, and psychedelia. But more importantly, I feel like the music and art we create as a band is the expression of the influences and experiences of life. Thats the core of it. All of my other interests such as horror movies and psychedelic music just influences the bigger picture of what we are as a band.
A: I’d say some influence has come from various forms of art such as movies, music, and literature.
J: Electric Wizard/ Sleep
TMODM: What record changed your life?
AP: “The Axeman Cometh” by Wicked Lady. That record captured magic on tape. It had such a strong grip on me when I first listened to it and has so strongly influenced my musical path ever since. I think it’s also fair to say “Brain Cycles” by Radio Moscow has changed my life. Every time I listen to any track off that album my mind is blown. And lastly, the self titled Black Sabbath album for obvious reasons. Praise Iommi.
A: “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” and “The Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd. And I can’t leave out the song Echoes from the album Meddle by Pink Floyd, that song man… damn. “Paranoid” and “Black Sabbath” by Black Sabbath will forever live in my heart as well. “The Doors,” “Strange Days,” and “Morrison Hotel” by The Doors. And finally “Are You Experienced,” “Axis: Bold As Love,” and “Electric Ladyland” by Jimi Hendrix.
It’s hard to pick a single record that has changed my life but when I think of artists that have significantly impacted how I view music, art, and life, these four artists are the first to come to mind. Black Sabbath, The Doors, Pink Floyd, and Jimi Hendrix, those are the dudes!
J: Anything Earthless.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
AP: Just making more music and hopefully some upcoming shows! I would like to maybe release a ‘Live in the studio’ thing soon.
A: Hopefully progress as a drummer and as a band and keep trying to make music I’m stoked on with my friends!
J: Play live and just continue jamming/ making music that we like playing.

#Drone #Electronica #Experimental #Psych

From Bandcamp: “Hailing from Porto, Portugal, Dreamweapon is a Psychedelic Voodoo Industrial Machine, the brain child of 10000 Russos former bass player André Couto. Like the forefathers who inspired their name (Angus MacLise, Tony Conrad, Spacemen 3), their music is minimalist, droney, headswirling psychedelia of an hallucinatory nature.”
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Ars Moriendi?
Dreamweapon: Ars Moriendi was Recorded between the end of the pandemic confinement and the beginning of Ukrainian invasion, so the uncertainty around life and death played an important role in my subconscious. I think it’s a record that pretty much reflects what I was feeling back then. Musically speaking, it draws some bridges between Rites of Lunacy and SOL, while closing the circle. My sound have evolved into a more dark electronics and industrial sphere, and it certainly points out a new path for me.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Dreamweapon: the first record I remember having contact with was Ummagumma, by Pink Floyd. My best friend had just bought it out of instinct, mesmerized by it’s cover. It took us a while to understand it, but we’ve soon formed a band called Psicadelic Mind, I was 12 years old.
While I indentify it with this particular period, I think it’s pretty fair to say it did changed my life, because I’ve been doing music since.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Dreamweapon: Ars Moriendi releases Oct 6th, then I have a soon to be announced small EU tour in November, another one next spring, and in between I hope to finish the next album wich is already in the making and I’m feeling really excited about it!

TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Torrey Pines?
Lomma: This album was influenced by my adolescence, where I would drive to the beach around sunset during the summer while playing surf/garage rock music with the windows rolled down.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Lomma: The record that was the most influential during the time that influenced this album was Wavves – King of the Beach
TMODM: What’s next for you?

#Punk #ProtoPunk #PsychedelicRock #ShockRock

From Badncamp: “Stepmother is an Australian power trio fronted by Graham Clise (Annihilation Time, Lecherous Gaze, Rot TV, Witch). With Equal parts motor city proto punk and feedback drenched fuzz on the darker side of psychedelia, Stepmother plays anthems for the poor depraved sickos and rock n roll miscreants. With influences ranging from Blue Cheer & The Pink Fairies to Nervous Eaters & The Damned.”
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Planet Brutalicon?
Stepmother: I was listening to lots of blue cheer, nervous eaters , pink fairies and early grand funk railroad at the time I was writing the record.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Stepmother: When I was 10 years old My friends older sister gave me a cassette tape with misfits walk among us on one side and black flag my war on the other, before that I listened to cock rock.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Stepmother: After the stepmother record comes out we’ll do a few gigs in Australia, hopefully we’ll get to Europe and America if people dig the record. My old band Annihilation Time is doing some gigs in America, and Witch has a new record coming out early next year so probably more gigs!

Legal Noise

#Fuzz #Doom #GarageRock #IndieRock #PsychedelicPunk #PsychedelicRock #PsychRock #SpaceRock

Legal Noise are from Hobart, Australia. “Bunch of boys from Tassie havin’ a bash”
Joel Green
Declan cooke
Druien Martin

TMODM: What has had the strongest influence on your music?
LN: For me personally, I think the strongest influence would have to be the Australian Music Scene. There is an abundance of awesome bands here, Orb, Gee Tee, King Gizzard, Slaughterhaus Surf Cult, Glitchcraft and Spooky Eyes. Just to name a few. I think that and then just Tasmania itself plays a really large part in moulding our sound as well.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
LN: Nevermind by Nirvana (nothing cool, edgy or obscure. My uncle showed me this when I was young, and it changed everything.)
TMODM: What’s next for you?

#Dark #Doom #Minimal #Sludge #StonerRock

Doom from Flint, MI by Derek Fisher (Moth66).
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Summmon?
Gøren: A large part of last year I had a pretty bad depressive episode. The kind where climbing out of bed was an accomplishment. So a lot of the album is self reflection and personal things. One that wasn’t so personal although it was close to home is “If Walls Could Speak” which I about a modern day Dahmer cannibal killer who picked up a victim about a mile from my house and “Black Mist” is about a bout of sleep paralysis that I had where this black figure tormented me in my sleep. So I technically couldn’t get out of bed in that situation either! 😂
TMODM: What record changed your life?
Gøren: That’s definitely a loaded question because we could talk for weeks about that, but I will say hearing Alice in Chains for the first time in the 90’s was huge. Hearing “Man In The Box” got me hooked but all of their albums have had a major impact on me. Another massive album is/was Ledbetter Heights by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. There are more, but like I said that would take weeks to go through 😂
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Gøren: More music! I’m about 30-40% complete with the next album for my rock project Moth66 and I’m already in the early stages of writing the next Gøren album. Odds are that Moth66 will be next but I like to follow my inspiration so if I get on a roll with Gøren stuff that could be next. All i know is that more music is on the way in 2024.

Orbiter is from Helsinki, Finland. Riff worship and swirling psychedelia.
Carolin – vocals
Alexander – guitars
Tuomas – bass
Sami – drums

TMODM: What record changed your life?
Orbiter: When I was 15, I heard the album Origin of Symmetry by Muse for the first time, that truly changed my life. Already the first song New Born was just so powerful and wild in its song structure and expression. Even decades later it still fascinates me. I loved the power and sensitivity with which Matt Bellamy hit these roller coaster notes, paired with the incredible compositions and sound of that album. It was hard to even wrap my head around it back then. When music is so beautifully crafted, it leaves a deep impression and surely this was one of the albums, that ignited me towards my own music path.
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Hollow World?
Orbiter: It is difficult to name one strong and precise influence, but what definitely had a huge influence on Hollow World, were the lessons we learned in the process of making The Deluge. We wanted more airy and organic sounding feel in the drums like in classic 70s rock and early heavy metal albums, at the same time keeping the richness and non-compromisingly heavy modern doom metal fuzz sound. With vocals we also felt that less effects and working with only the necessary amount of vocal tracks supports our goal of powerful, yet vulnerable delivery. In album structure we also paid tribute to the lost art of using instrumental interludes to tie the holistic experience together, which has not been in fashion for way too long.
TMODM: What’s next for you?
Orbiter: We are about to play a few shows this fall, especially looking forward for sharing the stage with Slomatics here in Helsinki. Then we start turning our minds already on writing new material. There is no rest for the wicked and the slow must go on!

Sonic Demon

#BikerRock #Fuzz #HeavyPsych #Heavy #ProtoMetal #PsychedelicRock #Doom #StonerRock

From Bandcamp: “Nastier, rawer, rougher than Sonic Demon has ever been, “Veterans Of The Psychic War” is a fuzzed-psyched-heavy inyourface and mostly uncompromising, ears-melting attack! Beware the Demon
As a good friend of ours would say, ”Bring Shrooms!!!” and let the madness continue!”
TMODM: What had the strongest influence on Veterans Of The Psychic War?

SD: It’s difficult for us to say what had the strongest influence on the new record, there were various substances involved haha. Joking aside, the guitar tone is pretty wild in this album, I would say Electric Wizard is still one of the main influences for the guitar sound, we used their fuzz pedal.
Anyway listening back to the album after the recording session we figured out there were some Kyuss influenced parts as well but we don’t limit it to the stoner rock area, we can say there are a lot of late sixties-early seventies underground garage fuzz vibes as we see it, then don’t forget Black Sabbath haha.
TMODM: What record changed your life?
SD: For me (the guitar player) must be Sabbath’s Master Of Reality. I was 11/12 when I bought that CD on a Saturday afternoon at the local record store and I never looked back after listening to it, I was sold to Tony Iommi and Geezer’s bass sound as well.
The drummer says it was Reign in Blood by slayer so can’t argue with that ha!
TMODM: What’s next for you?
SD: That’s most difficult question, we have no idea at this very moment but you can follow us on our instagram and facebook pages to see updates about what is going on.
