Bridging the spheres of heavy psychedelic sounds and stoner rock, Athens-based band Headquake is about to release their brand new album "Into The Spiral". It marks their second full length LP after a selftitled album seven years ago.
Drawing influence from a number of bands like Kyuss or Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, Headquake seems to develop their individual sound by using only certain elements and transforming them into something new. Like the use of heavy riffs with a floating rhythmic character in "Spiral" or the uptempo grooves in "All Life Long" that showcase a serious stoner attitude. Though you might find some very nice and fast rocking tracks on this one like "Evil Spirits", I have to go with the slower, aforementioned floating tunes, that really stand out on this album. The psychedelic moods and melodic riffs of "Sky Is The Dream" are probably the best example to sum up Headquake's sound. "Into The Spiral" will be available early October through Dia de los muertos Records
