Bucky Not only does it live up to the album title but Psychoriffadelia devours all high expectations coming hot the whiskers of the self titled released just last year. The Beard of Doom jams us with hot crusty psychedelia and slathers with distorted riffs hallucinating with a sinister twang.
Favorite track: Stressknots.
Also available on vinyl and CD through Kozmik Artifactz Records (Europe) and STB Records (US) on June 9th.
Recorded mostly live at Redbird Studio on 9/10/16 in New York City, the songs of Psychoriffadelia came together over the course of that summer. It had been months since we turned in the masters for our self titled album, yet still a few months until the album was released. We had been playing shows with Charles Ruggiero on drums while Chris Turco was on a work related hiatus. During that time, riffs arose, jams happened and songs were created. We wanted to capture that moment, no matter how fleeting.
The power of the riff. The allure of the psychedelic. The intensity of the electricity. These are the things that bring us together, these are the things that create Psychoriffadelia.
