Fjordheksa/Cellahead- Split LP (2017)

Warning! Not for the faint of heart! Fjordheksa and Cellahead, two might forces of stoner/doom from the city of Aachen, Germany, have united to deliver a split LP will chew you up and spit you out- right into space! The first four tracks from Fjordheksa are a savage combination of grit and groove with shrieking vocals, heavy bass, and rhythm that almost becomes primal. These guys are the untamed wild with no credence for conventions! They aren't afraid to keep things weird by bringing in the occasional funky passage or some wailing horns. After you've been pummeled by the sound, the horns and feedback fade away as you leave the earth and Cellahead guides you into the cosmos. Their contribution is a single 27 minute track ripe with ambient sounds and a slow, steady pave that will set you adrift through the universe. The lyrics will remind you that the "cosmos is shining bright", but the wah of the guitar truly illuminates the galaxy and allows you to see the stardust swirling around you. Before you know it, you're left alone, floating in the void and reflecting on what a fearsome duo these two bands make. Their potent union is the first release from MegaBell Records- here's hoping for more!- Brandon
