BLACK RAINBOWS - HAWKDOPE
Hawkdope on LP
2017 repress. 2015 release. The Italian psych-fuzz trio Black Rainbows sound like the bastard offspring of '70s hard-rock swagger and '90s stoner-groove; hints of Black Sabbath, MC5, and Hawkwind fused with liberal pinches of Monster Magnet and Fu Manchu. Since 2007, the band have released three full-length albums, coupled with split releases with bands such as White Hills, Naam, and Farflung, and finally 2013's highly acclaimed Holy Moon EP (HPS 012EP). They have also been regulars on stages across the world having now performed over 300 gigs. Their new album Hawkdope is a perfect mix of Monster Magnet, Hawkwind, Fu Manchu; a psychedelic, lysergic storm of heavy space-rock containing nine brand new tracks.
