MONOLORD - LORD OF SUFFERING
Swedish sludge/doom act Monolord released an absolute beast of a doom/sludge record last year with Vaenir and followed that with a North American tour opening for Windhand. Now they'll be coming back on a tour of their very own this summer, and to support the tour comes this new 10", that ably demonstrates that Monolord may very well be the true heirs to Black Sabbath's soon-to-be-empty throne.

ALASTOR - SLAVE TO THE GRAVE
Alastor hearken to the days when heavy rock was the music of the rebel, the occult adherent and lurker in the shadows, not hipster bros. Theirs is the doom sound for those who discovered it on the edge of town, in the cold rain, perhaps, as an escape from the squares who'll never understand. Drenched in heavy, distorted darkness and steeped in occult horror that will make your skin crawl and ears cry sweet tears of blood, Slave To The Grave pulls no punches in the Swedish band's unabashedly bleak themes.

ALEPH NULL - NOCTURNAL
Nocturnal 1st Pressing Featuring Double LP, Heavy Duty 24pt board Single Jacket, Insert. "If Alice In Chains had a massive Nut Sack...this is what it would sound like". After forming in Düsseldorf in 2012, Aleph Null quickly made a name for themselves amongst doom and stoner rock connoisseurs with their first EP 'Dale', and its 2013 follow-up, 'Belladonna'. Last week the riff loving three piece released their first full-length release 'Nocturnal' online, and in an extremely kind gesture, have made the record available as a free download. The band's thick, groovy sound and keen songwriting skills are sure to endear them to fans of bands like Sleep, Down and Clutch, and 'Nocturnal' finds the band on fine form, busting out all manner of deep, fuzzy anthems in style.

BLACKOUT - BLACKOUT
With food, beer, and America at the forefront, it only makes sense guitar player Christian Gordy and drummer Taryn Waldman would meet at Gordy's 2011 July 4th cookout in Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. With no direction and zero discussion the two instinctually began banging out some massive caveman jams that could party as much as they could crush. In the following months, the two recruited fellow rager Justin Sherrll for bass, and things got loud and heavy. BLACKOUT-referring to blackout drunk, power failure, or a mobster hit on an entire family, was a no brainer for a name. For fans of Acid King, Weedeater, Trouble, and Black Sabbath.

NYC trio Blackout's take on doom and stoner rock is filled with a gritty, mechanistic heft unlike bands of their ilk from anywhere else. Subsumed within the greasy grooves of The Horse are echoes of NYC heavy legends like Helmet, Cro-Mags, Judge, Prong and others, not as an intentional homage, but rather a vibe that permeates and inadvertently gives it a unique power few can match.

BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT - BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT
The notion of heavy music is continuing to expand of late, with many intrepid artists finding new ways to incorporate the power of traditional metal into new music, but without all of it's trappings. Enter Portland, OR quartet Blackwater Holylight to further swirl musical elements into a captivating hybrid of emotional intensity. Heavy psychriffs, gothic drama, folk-rock vibes, garage-sludge and soaring melodies all collide into a satisfying whole with as much contrast as the band's name itself. Throughout this selftitled debut, the band's songs shirk traditional verse-chorus-verse structure in favor of fluid, serpentine compositions that move with commanding grace. The band expertly, yet subconsciously, incorporates hints of Chelsea Wolfe, Celebration, Captain Beefheart, The Raincoats, The Stooges, Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction and more to form their unique brand of dark n' heavy transcendence.

DANAVA - UNONOU
The Portland/Brooklyn band's 2nd album, originally released on KEMADO in 2008, lovingly reissued on RIDING EASY Records. It may sound like a whole lot of nonsense psychobabble, but, in a way, the title of Danava's second album, UnonoU, is not only perfectly suited to this uniquely enigmatic, often downright perplexing band, but the word probably means something important in the language of their native planet. Actually, there's a hypothesis! After all, Danava's eponnleinymous first album already suggested that they might be visitors from a distant galaxy, located somewhere between Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Rush's favorite black hole, "Cignus X-1". As if to corroborate this alien origin conspiracy theory, UnonoU's striking artwork is reminiscent of the golden era of sci-fi novels, and, just as did those famous works by Asimov, Bradbury, Hei.

DEATH WHEELERS - I TREAD ON YOUR GRAVE
Heavily inspired by the aesthetics and ethos of bikesploitation movies such as The Wild Angels, Werewolves On Wheels and Psychomania, The Death Wheelers seek to glorify this unsung era of movie-making through their sordid sounds.

DUNBARROW - DUNBARROW
Dunbarrow is based in the far northern Norwegian city Trondheim, but is originally from Haugesund on the west coast of Norway. The band has been playing together for over 8 years through different band names and genres. Dunbarrows clean, unadorned sound shares the unpretentious brilliance of classic heavy progenitors playing basements and barns, before the big budgets and bloated habits diluted hard rock into an echo chamber awash in reverb and layered in distant, screeching hobbits. The bands 9-track self-titled album is a classic in the sense that every song becomes instantly recognizable after just one listen.

DUNBARROW - DUNBARROW II
Key to the band's impressive sound is that the singer is also the recording and mixing engineer. To further perfect their sound, the group teamed up with one of the most prominent producers in Norway, Christer Cederberg (Anathema, Tristania) for the first few days in order to get the sound just right. Then, Espen did the rest. The result is as eponymous and definitive as its title.

Inasmuch as this album is an ode to the band's home and its buried past, it also represents a return to the grittier sound of their 2014 debut, Sateen. Furthermore, it marks the return of original bassist Nick Vogelpohl, who rejoins vocalist Laura Dolan, guitarist Ross Dolan and drummer Nate Wagner. It's a fun, tough, dirty rock 'n' roll album.

After bursting to the American heavy rock forefront with their 2014 debut album, Sateen, Cincinnati four-piece Electric Citizen are ready for a Higher Time. Their second album for RidingEasy, it is a breakout moment for the band as a whole and for vocalist Laura Dolan, who stands tall in the spotlight throughout "Evil," "Misery Keeper" and the rest of Higher Time, rising to the occasion of a fuller, bigger sound and meeting the memorable riffing of husband/guitarist Ross Dolan head on with already-stuck-in-your-head hooks and a fiery, passionate delivery. Electric Citizen spread their name far and wide on tours with Fu Manchu, Wolfmother, Budos Band and Pentagram for Sateen.

HELLFIRE - FREE AGAIN
Formed in recent years in San Francisco (though it may seem more likely that they hatched fresh out of a time travel portal from the mid-'80s Bay Area thrash scene), Hellfire have the classic look and sound of modern metal's halcyon days. Their sonic assault warmly condenses elements of Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Exodus, Metallica, Riot, Virtue and Diamond Head into eight tracks of headbanging MUYA anthems. This sophomore album is being released for the first time on vinyl and remastered for CD. It was recorded over five days in Grass Valley, California, at engineer Tim Green's Louder Studios (The Fucking Champs, Melvins.) Where Metal Masses showcased aesthetic nods to Metallica's Kill m All album (as well as a cover photo brilliantly depicting a blurry hand speedily playing a Flying-V guitar), Free Again finds the band coming into their own with emphasis upon grooves, a beefier sound and tighter songs that expertly shift into new parts at the drop of a hat.

HERE LIES MAN - HERE LIES MAN
What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat? In short, that's the underlying vibe to the self-titled debut by Here Lies Man. The L.A. based quintet is founded and conceptualized by Marcos Garcia of Antibalas, bringing his erudite experience of West African rhythms and music to the more riff-based foundations of heavy rock. The results are an incredibly catchy and refreshing twist on classic forms, without sounding forced and trite like some sort of mash-up attempt. Here Lies Man merges and expands musical traditions organically, utilizing the talents of drummer Geoff Mann (son of jazz musician Herbie Mann) and a host of skilled musicians to make Garcia's vision a reality. This brilliant, hazy, psychedelic, hook-laden 8-song masterwork will be available on LP, CD and download on April 7th, 2017 via RidingEasy Records.

HERE LIES MAN - YOU WILL KNOW NOTHING
The L.A. band comprised of Antibalas members quickly follow their auspicious debut with the even more thoroughly realized album You Will Know Nothing. Its eleven tracks expand upon the band's exploration of heavy riff-based rock and psych within the ancient rhythmic formula of the clave. Sonically, the dynamic range is thicker, crisper and more powerful on this album. It glistens as much as it blasts. The songs are even catchier, more anthemic, and the production reflects that of a band truly come into its own. While it also certainly maintains its gritty grooves, there's an interesting conceptual mathematics to the entire proceedings. Lyrically, the album is also an equally more conceptualized effort that reflects upon states of being and consciousness-a driving force that carries throughout the words and moods of all of the band's releases, interconnected to their trancelike music. This band have truly honed their sound and their focus, and soon, you will truly know nothing.

HOLY SERPENT - HOLY SERPENT
Music often instigates a connection. Melbourne, Australia's HOLY SERPENT, instantly bonded over a healthy diet of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchcraft, The Melvins, and Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats in 2014. Their shared passion for riffs, reefer, and righteous half-pipes then blossomed into writing songs together. The quartet's magnetism billows out from under a THC-spiked haze of doom riffs and psychedelic rock bombast, it's hypnotic. No export to Europe, ok for rest of the world.

In the short time since their self-titled RidingEasy debut in mid-2015, Melbourne, Australia's Holy Serpent have gained a lot of attention for their rather punk version of heavy psych and metal. Fittingly, there's a strong vibe of early Soundgarden, Saint Vitus and Kyuss to Temples in that it's undeniably heavy, but also clever in its experimentation with subtle tempo shifts, multiple vocal effects and other production techniques. But it's still more Sabotage than Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

MICK'S JAGUAR - FAME AND FORTUNE
Rock and roll is dead in New York City. Long live New York City rock and roll. Mick's Jaguar is bringing noisy, wild, unafraid big rock back to NYC. Crazy rents, corporatized venues, and kids listening to DJs: it's hard being a band in this town. This isn't LA and Mick's Jaguar is a product of their environment: a windowless dungeon practice space twenty feet below the trash covered sidewalk of the Lower East Side. Rats, grime, the sounds of the city; the band gleefully pillages the history of rock music to create thoroughly modern, but classic rock and roll. Not quite punk, but not metal either, this is hard rock and roll that's been put through the brain blenders of six musicians who pair their Judas Priest shirts with Steely Dan hats.

MONDO DRAG - MONDO DRAG
The creatures known as Mondo Drag hailed from deep along the banks of the wild Mississippi River where they created ominous, spiritual, savage psychedelic revival sounds. Summoned to the edge of the Earth, they journeyed west, collecting new sounds reminiscent of desert scapes, acid dreams, all-night prog vinyl spinning and a dark galaxy of protometal swirls, exalting the band unto new, wickedly brilliant horizons. Now settled in the deep realms of Oakland, the ensemble continues to create cosmically proportioned, churning jams evocative of a rainbow of obvious inspirations but also numinous new sounds emerging from the organ - heavy riffs. If you love Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Can, Atomic Rooster, Hawkwind, Budgie, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple ,Italian prog, Krautrock in general, and heavy space-outs....get into Mondo Drag. They'll knock your socks off, let your hair down and take you on a mind's eye exploration you won't soon forget. Though they exude love for the spiraling tapestry of heavy psychedelia of the past, they are on a rock and roll mission all their own: an unearthed prog band, futuristic in their time capsule, rocketing forward through the depths, gathering the sounds of space itself.

MONDO DRAG - THE OCCULTATION OF LIGHT
Most of The Occultation of Light was recorded live, tracked and mixed on analog tape by Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs) at El Studio in San Francisco. Mondo Drag had just come off the road after a month out with labelmates Electric Citizen and Slow Season, and their stage-honed, hard-won chemistry bleeds into every second of the record. Songs are warm, psychedelic and grooving, but have a poise born out of classic prog as well. And as much as their new home is a factor, that just wouldn't be possible without the road time.

PICTUREBOOKS, THE - IMAGINARY HORSE
The Picturebooks, a blues-soaked duo featuring singer/guitar player Fynn Claus Grabke and drummer Philipp Mirtschink. The German band release their North American debut album, Imaginary Horse, on Oct. 7 via RidingEasy Records. Music, skateboarding and motorcycles, thats all we need," says Grabke. The pair, who hail from Grsloh, Germany, are well known in motorcycle circles for their custom creations and the bands unique working environment thats part recording studio, skate park and chopper garage. From Dice Magazine to Kustom World, Custombike or Kustom, their bikes are featured in chopper magazines worldwide. Fynn, the son of famed 80's era skateboarder Claus Grabke, and Philipp have trekked across the European continent for the past four years, combining their passion into a lifestyle thats reflected in their wall-shaking music. The Picturebooks retreated to their "garage" in order to record Imaginary Horse during early 2014. Mirroring their daredevil skateboarding ethos, they broke rules while recording. For starters, there was considerable physical space between the musicians and the microphones, and it wasn't simply a sterile studio environment. The concrete floors and airy expanse contributed to the sound, and the overall atmosphere proved quite apropos. Ultimately, all of these pieces form a blues rock pastiche that's as individualistic as it is infectious. The Picturebooks' Imaginary Horse becomes a reality for rock 'n' roll now. "We never wanted to sound like anybody else," concludes Fynn. "We've done everything possible to create something of our own. I hope people see that, hear it, and feel it." For fans of Graveyard, Uncle Acid, Kadavar, Black Keys, White Stripes.

R.I.P. - IN THE WIND
Operating on the belief that heavy metal didn't come from the forest or beam down from outer space, but rather that it crawled up out of the sewer and writhed to life in the grit and grime of the streets, the four rock n roll freaks of R.I.P. call their sound "Street Doom" and spread the message with heavy touring across the United States. Obsessed with death and disgusted with the scene, they dragged their knuckles into the studio in 2016 and excavated a debut LP dedicated to fear and trembling, calling it In The Wind. The Portland, OR quartet - guitarist Angel Martinez, vocalist Fuzz, bassist John Mullett and drummer Willie D. - echoes the grimy vibe of legends like Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Motorhead, with the no b.s. aesthetic of the early Metal Massacre compilations. Metal Injection raves, "It's anything but your standard doom record. R.I.P.'s sonic signature sounds like an old school rock 'n' roll band that takes its cues from the likes of Dead Kennedys and Ghoul."

R.I.P. - STREET REAPER
When R.I.P. came crawling out of the sewers of Portland, OR last year, their grimy, sleazy Street Doom was already a fully formed monstrosity that quickly infected the minds of everyone it encountered. Now, borne from the band's declining state of mental health and increasing focus on songwriting, Street Reaper is an even more unhinged and menacing album than their 2016 debut In The Wind.

SALEM'S POT - LURAR UT DIG PA PRARIEN
Sweden's trio of blood drunkards Salem's Pot return this April to consecrate their union with the LA based label EasyRider Records with a follow up to last year's Watch Me Kill You. Following in the footsteps of astral concept albums of the 1970s, over three tracks of sprawling heavy psychedelia "...Lurar ut dig pa° prarien" offers the listener little chance of escape. Summoning the writhing sounds of demon fuzz and distant death knells the opening swell of "Creep Purple", a 14 minute purge of lo-fi garage metal riffs and lysergic comedown finds Salem's Pot setting out their stall from which to peddle the darkest of doom. Loose, low slung and inspired by the legends of Sabbath and the extended jams of Hawkwind "Dr Death" and the pounding "Nothing Hell" complete the unholy trinity of tracks replete with lyrics that propel the listener into worlds unknown. Atmospheric realms populated with weed and witches in a reality as miserable and malevolent as it mind-bending and majestic.

SALEM'S POT - PRONOUNCE THIS!
"Don't try to fight it," the band's motto implores, "Salem's Pot has come to destroy your mind." It's the same kind of winking tease employed by low budget horror films of the 70s-80s that essentially dared audiences to experience what they knew they wanted, but couldn't possibly expect. Likewise, the new album by mysterious Swedish quintet Salem's Pot delivers truly gritty and captivating heavy rock in high contrast technicolor: a sonic equivalent of The Last House On The Left, El Topo and Blood Feast. Similar to the way such films made up for their lack of flashy, expensive effects with dim lighting and implied violence, a hallucinogenic sense of true evil lurks in the dark corners of Salem's Pot's sound. Lest we forget, the band's name itself is a pun on Stephen King's stark, modernized vampire masterpiece. Double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, fourth side is an etching.

SALEM'S POT - SWEEDEN
The Swedish trio Salem's Pot have unleashed psychedelic forces of the occult for their latest LP from February 2013. There's reverb, noisy garage production, hypnotizing doom riffs, and a certain DIY irreverence that makes this release a fucking riot. Previous releases show a stronger funeral influence, but this latter incarnation is much more Electric Wizard. This makes it immediately familiar, with all the fuzz and heavy bass, but with an unmistakable energy and love for the form that makes it exciting. Two tracks recorded live in an old mental hospital by the damaged minds of a power-trio, high on very potent pot from Salem.

SHOOTING GUNS - BROTHERHOOD OF THE RAM (COLOR)
Special one off-COLOR pressing for RSD, only 500 made! EasyRider Records is proud to partner up with Shooting Guns and Cobraside to release an exclusive to vinyl version of their upcoming full length LP - "Brotherhood Of The Ram". For the band's distinct sound, it's as if Pink Floyd had a baby that was into heavy rock, (essentially keeping that stoney etherial landscape that is cinematic and psychedelic) at the same time as rocking it. Brotherhood was mastered by John McBain (Monster Magnet, Carlton Melton). Shooting Guns' debut LP, Born To Deal in Magic: 1952-1976, was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize last year. While the music is instrumental, the songs are still structured and heavily rhythmic with many melodic hooks that has found us fans within the metal, indie rock, and hip-hop music scenes.

SHOOTING GUNS - FLAVOUR COUNTRY
Flavour Country is the band's fastest, heaviest and most visceral material-a collection of anthems to jettison from this universe into the multiverse. The album features some of the band's most atmospheric sounds: there are slight hints of Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western twang amidst the looping Meddle-era Pink Floyd heavy psych and driving drone reminiscent of Bobby Beausoleil's belladonna laced soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising.

SLOW SEASON - MOUNTAINS
SLOW SEASON first emerged in 2012 with their self-titled debut. Supported by shows throughout California and nationally, they began to garner palpable buzz. Now, Mountains kicks off their next chapter on Riding Easy! However, they'll continue to exist within an epoch of their own. On Slow Seasons' second full-length album MOUNTAINS, you might just forget what era you're in. It could very well be the sixties, seventies, or now. It almost doesn't matter though because this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock n' roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization. Right in the realm of late 1960's blues Led Zeppelin, Blue Cheer.

SLOW SEASON - WESTING
Contrary to the band's name, downtime is a rarity for Slow Season. Sandwiched between summer 2015's extensive tour with their RidingEasy labelmates Mondo Drag and Electric Citizen, plus several short west coast jaunts, the hard-working quartet also found time to hammer out its most powerful and ambitious album yet. Written, engineered, produced and mixed themselves on their own equipment, entirely on analog tape, Westing is a hard-hitting and powerful reminder of how at one time a rock 'n' roll band could be a transcendent experience.

SPELLJAMMER - ANCIENT OF DAYS
Ancient of Days is not just the band's third release, but in many ways, a rebirth. It's Spelljammer's first recording as a trio - with Olsson taking over bass duties and new drummer Jonatan Rimsbo battering the skins - and the culmination of a progressive move toward a heavier, doom-laden sound, away from the desert rock leanings of their 2010 debut Inches From the Sun. Vol II saw the band spreading out into darker territories. After writing sessions fell apart in 2013 for a followup to Vol II (reissued in early 2015 by RidingEasy Records) Olsson and guitarist Robert Sorling scrapped nearly everything following the departure of half of the band. The two began to build from the ground up as a duo with new ideas that resulted in the invigorated Ancient of Days. It's the band's most focused and deliberate in both its complexities and simplicities. There's the pummeling heft of detuned guitars rumbling across the rugged expanse of unwieldy drums counterbalanced with moments of Master of Reality-era Sabbath's introspective acoustic breaks and Pink Floyd's Meddle-era psychedelia. These extreme shifts in dynamic give the band's third album a sense of epic depth unlike most of Spelljammer's peers.

Stockholm's Spelljammer VOL. II is like a herd of bison running off a cliff. Not for the faint of heart, this is one of the best doom albums of the last 10 years. If you like your music heavy and slow, there is nothing that quite satisfies the itch the way that Spelljammer does. Out previously on a very limited run of vinyl that has fetched $100 and more, this record is now made available to the masses via RidingEasy Records on LP and CD (for the first time ever). 300 on Clear pink vinyl.

SPINY NORMEN - SPINY NORMEN
SPINY NORMEN were an incredible mid-'70s Houston hard rock, progressive, psychedelic rock band that featured mellotron, Vox Jaguar, crunchy, heavy guitars, flute with echo effects, and lots more. A totally lost relic, this self-titled album was recorded at a community college and never released. The recording is very English, dark, mysterious and proggy, but also very acid-drenched. "Circa 1976, GERRY [DIAZ] and I would skip class, smoke whatever scrap of contraband we could scrape together and meet in the high school auditorium where there was a piano and bang out crunchy rhythms. Gerry was playing guitar, listening to Alice Cooper, hair down to his back and about the only Mexican-American in a white bread school. He was cool! So when he said one day, 'Hey man we should jam some time,' I was stoked. I found an ancient Vox Jaguar that had belonged to Fever Tree and a Kustom amp that I blew out just right, that made the most beautiful distortion, accompanied by a beloved phase shifter.

RidingEasy Records is pleased to announce the debut release of Hypnosis Sessions by Spiral Shades; a uniquely assembled doom metal album four thousand miles in the making. Formed by Vennesla, Norway-native Filip Peterson and Mumbai based singer-songwriter Khushal Bhadra Spiral Shades is a metal record unlike any other. As avid fans of obscure 70s rock, doom and proto-metal, prior to forming Spiral Shades both Peterson and Bhadra relied on YouTube to unearth lost music and showcase their individual talents as musicians. Each would upload cover versions of songs by artists they had discovered online but it wasnt until one evening in the Summer of 2012 that Khushal happened to stumble onto Filips channel where he was taken aback by the Norwegians choices and impressive guitar playing.

SVVAMP - SVVAMP 2
Swedish trio Svvamp's self-titled debut was a breath of fresh air-unpretentious and free, primordial homespun classic rock that landed in the Top 20 Albums of 2016 in the Doom Charts consortium of writers and radio. The most common remark was how genuine and uncontrived it sounded, unlike most bands that posture and mimic the sounds of yesteryear. So, it may be hard to grasp how fully realized the band sounds on Svvamp 2, while still sounding as laid back as their debut. Perhaps it can be partly attributed to the band's jump from self-recording on a four-channel cassette deck to self-recording on a comparatively expansive SIX-channel system. That's two whole more tracks to fill up! The obvious comparison to the groundbreaking psychedelic albums of the late '60s, when artists began experimenting with studios moving from four, to eight to sixteen tracks, is fitting here too. Their resulting heavy psych sound bears hints of Cream, Eric Bell-era Thin Lizzy, CCR and Crazy Horse.

The series is curated by L.A. label RidingEasy Records and retailer/label Permanent Records. For the fifth lysergic journey, we've assembled 10 heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form anyhow. And as usual, the tracks from these impossibly rare records have all been fully cleared through the artists themselves. We've gone to great lengths to get the best possible master sources, the worst case scenario being an original 45. 'Cuz it ain't worth doing unless you do it right.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE FIRST TRIP
Expertly archived compilation (assembled by LA's Permanent Records along with Riding Easy) explores the wealth of proto-metal, pre-stoner lost rock tracks from the past 30 years. Brown Acid: The First Trip opens with the slithering buzzsaw guitars and hard-rock howl of Zeke's' "Box", a monster that gives Blue Cheer a run for their leaden blues. Snow sways into "Sunflower" with a touch of Steppenwolf's swagger and wind-in-their-hair wildness. Elsewhere, Zebra proves they were "Wasted" with a soul-inflected groove, while Bob Goodsite leans in on his wah-wah and phaser pedals, determined to out-Hendrix Jimi himself on "Faze." Raw Meat's "Stand By Girl" serves up a fierce, stomping riff intercut with Iron Butterfly style operatics. Bacchus kicks out a hostile sounding boogie, demanding to "Carry My Load." Josefus caps it all off nicely with a hooky power-pop meets Bob Seger System meets Lollipop Shoppe anthem with the undeniably catchy chorus, "hard luck - keep truckin'!"

Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they ain't easy to find, but they're out there if you're willing to dig.and we aren't afraid to get our hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and we've sifted through a lot of dirt, but we've dug up another ten tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE SIXTH TRIP
Six volumes worth of licensed tracks released in just three years: doing the Dark Lord's work isn't an easy job, but somebody's gotta do it, so here is Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip, with more lined up. The heads just can't get enough obscure hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal from the late '60s and '70s! This time around Riding Easy present ten deep cuts from across the continental USA and one from the neighbors up North. This trip kicks off with an outrageous number from Gold out of San Francisco circa 1970. The band used to open their sets with this over-the-top frantic jammer which is absolutely mind-blowing! Delving deeper into the depths, Canadians continue to prove that they could bang heads with the best of 'em! Heat Exchange from Toronto released the rollicking ripper "Inferno" on the Yorkville label way back in 1968 and it's still thumping almost fifty years later. Some more examples of the mind-melting tracks on this platter: Missouri isn't a state that brought us a lot of heavy 45s, but there are a handful of outstanding tracks, one of which is the funk-laced anthem "Give Me Time" by Backwood Memory from Kansas City. Youngstown, Ohio, meanwhile, might have been the Hard Rock Mecca back in the day. Travis is yet another Youngstown group that aimed to get asses out of seats and out in the streets. Truth & Janey had their incredible proto-metal masterpiece 1976 album No Rest For The Wicked; released four years earlier, "Midnight Horseman" was a 45-only track, included here! Those are just some of the fruits of months worth of record digging and detective work included on this latest installment. This is the stuff that makes life worth living, at least until the next Trip...

Most of these tracks were recorded in shack-sized studios, privately pressed for promotional purposes, and tossed out like last night's half empties only to later be discovered to be half-full, if not overflowing with greatness. The majority of these tracks are from the good ol' US of A with two exceptions, Ash-labelmate New Zealanders, Chook, and the mighty Limeys, Factory. As they say, first is the worst, second is the best, third is the one with the hairy chest. So take a shot of whiskey, shotgun a beer, and put some fuzz in between your nipples with the hairiest Trip you've taken yet. You won't be sorry you did."

WELL, THE - PAGAN SCIENCE
The impressive crux of Pagan Science, the sophomore album by Austin trio The Well, is that it's a multiplicity of itself. From the band's dual male/female vocals to their transcendently timeless sounds and erudite lyrical themes, Pagan Science is crystalline in its complexity and clarity at the same time. The Well walk an intriguing line between authentic early 70s doom/heavy psych and the more frayed-edge-of-sanity weirdness of their hometown's legendary noise rock scene, whilst also splicing in shades of chamber choir vocals, occult rock and dark folk. Pagan Science was recorded with producer/engineer Chico Jones at Micro Mega Studio in 2016. Jones also previously engineered the band's debut album Samsara with producer Mark Deutrom [Melvins, Sunn0)))] in 2013. Samsara, released late September 2014 was ranked the #1 debut album of 2014 by The Obelisk and widely praised in the press. Likewise, the band's intense - some even say "possessed" - live performances have earned them featured slots at Austin's Levitation Fest in 2015 & 2016, as well as tours with Kadavar, All Them Witches, Black Tusk and more.

WELL, THE - SAMSARA
Austin-based power trio The Well redefine heavy rock by merging massive riffs with sophisticated melodies. Their progressive sound stems from a nostalgic desire to blend different musical styles as diversified as Joy Division to Blue Cheer. The group blossomed when guitarist/vocalist Ian Graham was fired from his previous band. Determined to redirect his musical focus, Graham hooked up with bassist Lisa Alley and the two began picking out riffs in their east-side garage. Rounding out their sound, they stole drummer Jason Sullivan from Grahams old band in a tale of vengeance and karma. His solid groove and reckless tribal beat gave the three-piece their ideal primal attack. Due to their psychedelic doom edge, The Well reap comparisons to Black Sabbath, Sleep, Electric Wizard and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. Samsara is the band's first full length LP, Inspired by early 0s psych and proto-metal, The Well have created a sound that reflects doom, punk and horror all rolled together in a ghostly rock soundtrack. Their full-length debut, amsara', is their strongest collection of songs to date. Produced by Mark Deutrom and released through Riding Easy Records, the masterwork is a stripped down, electric blues fuzzfest and begs to be heard live. After a steady touring schedule that's seen the band share the stage with international acts such as: Kadavar, Orchid, Fu Manchu, High On Fire, NAAM, Orange Goblin, Pentagram and Dead Meadow guarantees The Well are street-tough contenders. "Writing dark, ominous music is how I deal with life," admits Ian. "When we play live it's like expelling the demons." At a time when rock music is fading among the masses, The Well inject an intoxicating dose of raw adrenaline into a fatigued genre. Their nostalgic reverence, simple structure and modern expression put them at the forefront of today's heavy rock. For fans of Uncle Acid, Pink Floyd, Kadavar, & Graveyard.

ELECTRIC CITIZEN - SATEEN
Cassette Store Day 2014 release (this does not have the well-known outer cardboard sleeve like most EasyRider cassettes, just a basic cassette case). Formed just over a year ago by guitarist Ross Dolan, vocalist Laura Dolan, Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums) Electric Citizen have had a busy year turning heads and ears onto their dark and esoteric style of haunting and unhallowed '60s West Coast rock, and decidedly British-influenced heavy psychedelia. Like records by similarly late 60s/early '70s-possessed anti-modernists Blood Ceremony, Wolf People and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, over nine tracks Sateen provides a blueprint for long term appreciation. Recorded and produced by fellow Ohioan and local stalwart Brian Olive (The Greenhornes, Soledad Brothers) the album draws on sounds synonymous with the roots of early '70s proto-metal from groups such as Sir Lord Baltimore, Pentagram, Cream and the daemonic spirit of Amon Düül. Not to mention the comparisons it draws with the rock 'n' roll ceremony of forgotten acts like Frumpy and Shocking Blue when held up against the spellbinding light of high priestess Laura Dolan's enigmatic voice and live presence.

BLACKOUT - BLACKOUT
With food, beer, and America at the forefront, it only makes sense guitar player Christian Gordy and drummer Taryn Waldman would meet at Gordy's 2011 July 4th cookout in Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. With no direction and zero discussion the two instinctually began banging out some massive caveman jams that could party as much as they could crush. In the following months, the two recruited fellow rager Justin Sherrll for bass, and things got loud and heavy. BLACKOUT-referring to blackout drunk, power failure, or a mobster hit on an entire family, was a no brainer for a name. For fans of Acid King, Weedeater, Trouble, and Black Sabbath.

BLACKOUT - THE HORSE
NYC trio Blackout's take on doom and stoner rock is filled with a gritty, mechanistic heft unlike bands of their ilk from anywhere else. Subsumed within the greasy grooves of The Horse are echoes of NYC heavy legends like Helmet, Cro-Mags, Judge, Prong and others, not as an intentional homage, but rather a vibe that permeates and inadvertently gives it a unique power few can match.

BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT - BLACKWATER HOLYLIGHT
The notion of heavy music is continuing to expand of late, with many intrepid artists finding new ways to incorporate the power of traditional metal into new music, but without all of it's trappings. Enter Portland, OR quartet Blackwater Holylight to further swirl musical elements into a captivating hybrid of emotional intensity. Heavy psychriffs, gothic drama, folk-rock vibes, garage-sludge and soaring melodies all collide into a satisfying whole with as much contrast as the band's name itself. Throughout this selftitled debut, the band's songs shirk traditional verse-chorus-verse structure in favor of fluid, serpentine compositions that move with commanding grace. The band expertly, yet subconsciously, incorporates hints of Chelsea Wolfe, Celebration, Captain Beefheart, The Raincoats, The Stooges, Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction and more to form their unique brand of dark n' heavy transcendence.

Heavily inspired by the aesthetics and ethos of bikesploitation movies such as The Wild Angels, Werewolves On Wheels and Psychomania, The Death Wheelers seek to glorify this unsung era of movie-making through their sordid sounds.

DUNBARROW - DUNBARROW
Dunbarrow is based in the far northern Norwegian city Trondheim, but is originally from Haugesund on the west coast of Norway. The band has been playing together for over 8 years through different band names and genres. Dunbarrows clean, unadorned sound shares the unpretentious brilliance of classic heavy progenitors playing basements and barns, before the big budgets and bloated habits diluted hard rock into an echo chamber awash in reverb and layered in distant, screeching hobbits. The bands 9-track self-titled album is a classic in the sense that every song becomes instantly recognizable after just one listen.

After bursting to the American heavy rock forefront with their 2014 debut album, Sateen, Cincinnati four-piece Electric Citizen are ready for a Higher Time. Their second album for RidingEasy, it is a breakout moment for the band as a whole and for vocalist Laura Dolan, who stands tall in the spotlight throughout "Evil," "Misery Keeper" and the rest of Higher Time, rising to the occasion of a fuller, bigger sound and meeting the memorable riffing of husband/guitarist Ross Dolan head on with already-stuck-in-your-head hooks and a fiery, passionate delivery. Electric Citizen spread their name far and wide on tours with Fu Manchu, Wolfmother, Budos Band and Pentagram for Sateen.

HELLFIRE - FREE AGAIN
Formed in recent years in San Francisco (though it may seem more likely that they hatched fresh out of a time travel portal from the mid-'80s Bay Area thrash scene), Hellfire have the classic look and sound of modern metal's halcyon days. Their sonic assault warmly condenses elements of Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Exodus, Metallica, Riot, Virtue and Diamond Head into eight tracks of headbanging MUYA anthems. This sophomore album is being released for the first time on vinyl and remastered for CD. It was recorded over five days in Grass Valley, California, at engineer Tim Green's Louder Studios (The Fucking Champs, Melvins.) Where Metal Masses showcased aesthetic nods to Metallica's Kill m All album (as well as a cover photo brilliantly depicting a blurry hand speedily playing a Flying-V guitar), Free Again finds the band coming into their own with emphasis upon grooves, a beefier sound and tighter songs that expertly shift into new parts at the drop of a hat.

HERE LIES MAN - HERE LIES MAN
What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat? In short, that's the underlying vibe to the self-titled debut by Here Lies Man. The L.A. based quintet is founded and conceptualized by Marcos Garcia of Antibalas, bringing his erudite experience of West African rhythms and music to the more riff-based foundations of heavy rock. The results are an incredibly catchy and refreshing twist on classic forms, without sounding forced and trite like some sort of mash-up attempt. Here Lies Man merges and expands musical traditions organically, utilizing the talents of drummer Geoff Mann (son of jazz musician Herbie Mann) and a host of skilled musicians to make Garcia's vision a reality. This brilliant, hazy, psychedelic, hook-laden 8-song masterwork will be available on LP, CD and download on April 7th, 2017 via RidingEasy Records.

HERE LIES MAN - YOU WILL KNOW NOTHING
The L.A. band comprised of Antibalas members quickly follow their auspicious debut with the even more thoroughly realized album You Will Know Nothing. Its eleven tracks expand upon the band's exploration of heavy riff-based rock and psych within the ancient rhythmic formula of the clave. Sonically, the dynamic range is thicker, crisper and more powerful on this album. It glistens as much as it blasts. The songs are even catchier, more anthemic, and the production reflects that of a band truly come into its own. While it also certainly maintains its gritty grooves, there's an interesting conceptual mathematics to the entire proceedings. Lyrically, the album is also an equally more conceptualized effort that reflects upon states of being and consciousness-a driving force that carries throughout the words and moods of all of the band's releases, interconnected to their trancelike music. This band have truly honed their sound and their focus, and soon, you will truly know nothing.

Melbourne, Australia's HOLY SERPENT, instantly bonded over a healthy diet of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchcraft, The Melvins, and Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats in 2014.

The quartet's magnetism billows out from under a THC-spiked haze of doom riffs and psychedelic rock bombast, it's hypnotic.

In the short time since their self-titled RidingEasy debut in mid-2015, Melbourne, Australia's Holy Serpent have gained a lot of attention for their rather punk version of heavy psych and metal. Fittingly, there's a strong vibe of early Soundgarden, Saint Vitus and Kyuss to Temples in that it's undeniably heavy, but also clever in its experimentation with subtle tempo shifts, multiple vocal effects and other production techniques. But it's still more Sabotage than Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

MICK'S JAGUAR - FAME AND FORTUNE
Rock and roll is dead in New York City. Long live New York City rock and roll. Mick's Jaguar is bringing noisy, wild, unafraid big rock back to NYC. Crazy rents, corporatized venues, and kids listening to DJs: it's hard being a band in this town. This isn't LA and Mick's Jaguar is a product of their environment: a windowless dungeon practice space twenty feet below the trash covered sidewalk of the Lower East Side. Rats, grime, the sounds of the city; the band gleefully pillages the history of rock music to create thoroughly modern, but classic rock and roll. Not quite punk, but not metal either, this is hard rock and roll that's been put through the brain blenders of six musicians who pair their Judas Priest shirts with Steely Dan hats.

MONDO DRAG - MONDO DRAG
The creatures known as Mondo Drag hailed from deep along the banks of the wild Mississippi River where they created ominous, spiritual, savage psychedelic revival sounds. Summoned to the edge of the Earth, they journeyed west, collecting new sounds reminiscent of desert scapes, acid dreams, all-night prog vinyl spinning and a dark galaxy of protometal swirls, exalting the band unto new, wickedly brilliant horizons. Now settled in the deep realms of Oakland, the ensemble continues to create cosmically proportioned, churning jams evocative of a rainbow of obvious inspirations but also numinous new sounds emerging from the organ - heavy riffs. If you love Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Can, Atomic Rooster, Hawkwind, Budgie, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Italian prog, Krautrock in general, and heavy space-outs....get into Mondo Drag. They'll knock your socks off, let your hair down and take you on a mind's eye exploration you won't soon forget. Though they exude love for the spiraling tapestry of heavy psychedelia of the past, they are on a rock and roll mission all their own: an unearthed prog band, futuristic in their time capsule, rocketing forward through the depths, gathering the sounds of space itself.

PICTUREBOOKS, THE - IMAGINARY HORSE
The Picturebooks, a blues-soaked duo featuring singer/guitar player Fynn Claus Grabke and drummer Philipp Mirtschink. The German band release their North American debut album, Imaginary Horse, on Oct. 7 via RidingEasy Records. Music, skateboarding and motorcycles, thats all we need," says Grabke. The pair, who hail from Grsloh, Germany, are well known in motorcycle circles for their custom creations and the bands unique working environment thats part recording studio, skate park and chopper garage. From Dice Magazine to Kustom World, Custombike or Kustom, their bikes are featured in chopper magazines worldwide. Fynn, the son of famed 80's era skateboarder Claus Grabke, and Philipp have trekked across the European continent for the past four years, combining their passion into a lifestyle thats reflected in their wall-shaking music. The Picturebooks retreated to their "garage" in order to record Imaginary Horse during early 2014. Mirroring their daredevil skateboarding ethos, they broke rules while recording. For starters, there was considerable physical space between the musicians and the microphones, and it wasn't simply a sterile studio environment. The concrete floors and airy expanse contributed to the sound, and the overall atmosphere proved quite apropos. Ultimately, all of these pieces form a blues rock pastiche that's as individualistic as it is infectious. The Picturebooks' Imaginary Horse becomes a reality for rock 'n' roll now. "We never wanted to sound like anybody else," concludes Fynn. "We've done everything possible to create something of our own. I hope people see that, hear it, and feel it." For fans of Graveyard, Uncle Acid, Kadavar, Black Keys, White Stripes.

R.I.P. - IN THE WIND
Operating on the belief that heavy metal didn't come from the forest or beam down from outer space, but rather that it crawled up out of the sewer and writhed to life in the grit and grime of the streets, the four rock n roll freaks of R.I.P. call their sound "Street Doom" and spread the message with heavy touring across the United States. Obsessed with death and disgusted with the scene, they dragged their knuckles into the studio in 2016 and excavated a debut LP dedicated to fear and trembling, calling it In The Wind. The Portland, OR quartet - guitarist Angel Martinez, vocalist Fuzz, bassist John Mullett and drummer Willie D. - echoes the grimy vibe of legends like Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Motorhead, with the no b.s. aesthetic of the early Metal Massacre compilations. Metal Injection raves, "It's anything but your standard doom record. R.I.P.'s sonic signature sounds like an old school rock 'n' roll band that takes its cues from the likes of Dead Kennedys and Ghoul."

When R.I.P. came crawling out of the sewers of Portland, OR last year, their grimy, sleazy Street Doom was already a fully formed monstrosity that quickly infected the minds of everyone it encountered. Now, borne from the band's declining state of mental health and increasing focus on songwriting, Street Reaper is an even more unhinged and menacing album than their 2016 debut In The Wind.

SALEM'S POT - PRONOUNCE THIS!
"Don't try to fight it," the band's motto implores, "Salem's Pot has come to destroy your mind." It's the same kind of winking tease employed by low budget horror films of the 70s-80s that essentially dared audiences to experience what they knew they wanted, but couldn't possibly expect. Likewise, the new album by mysterious Swedish quintet Salem's Pot delivers truly gritty and captivating heavy rock in high contrast technicolor: a sonic equivalent of The Last House On The Left, El Topo and Blood Feast. Similar to the way such films made up for their lack of flashy, expensive effects with dim lighting and implied violence, a hallucinogenic sense of true evil lurks in the dark corners of Salem's Pot's sound. Lest we forget, the band's name itself is a pun on Stephen King's stark, modernized vampire masterpiece.

SHOOTING GUNS - FLAVOUR COUNTRY
Flavour Country is the band's fastest, heaviest and most visceral material-a collection of anthems to jettison from this universe into the multiverse. The album features some of the band's most atmospheric sounds: there are slight hints of Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western twang amidst the looping Meddle-era Pink Floyd heavy psych and driving drone reminiscent of Bobby Beausoleil's belladonna laced soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's Lucifer Rising.

SLOW SEASON - MOUNTAINS
On Slow Seasons' second full-length album MOUNTAINS, and you might just forget what era you're in. It could very well be the sixties, seventies, or now. It almost doesn't matter though because this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock n' roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization.

SLOW SEASON - SLOW SEASON
Visalia (central California) quartet Slow Season have a revamped version of their 2012 self-titled debut album to be released on RidingEasy Records. The band's sound effortlessly nods to greats of the 60s-70s like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Black Sabbath, et al, without sounding like a caricature. Rather, as one can immediately hear, this is hypnotic, heavy, and howling rock 'n' roll that defies both musical and temporal categorization. Having recorded both of their albums live on reel-to-reel at Tarbell's home studio, the band eschews the digital trappings of music today to give their analog sound its crackling, kinetic energy.

SLOW SEASON - WESTING
Contrary to the band's name, downtime is a rarity for Slow Season. Sandwiched between summer 2015's extensive tour with their RidingEasy labelmates Mondo Drag and Electric Citizen, plus several short west coast jaunts, the hard-working quartet also found time to hammer out its most powerful and ambitious album yet. Written, engineered, produced and mixed themselves on their own equipment, entirely on analog tape, Westing is a hard-hitting and powerful reminder of how at one time a rock 'n' roll band could be a transcendent experience.

SPELLJAMMER - ANCIENT OF DAYS
Ancient of Days is not just the band's third release, but in many ways, a rebirth. It's Spelljammer's first recording as a trio - with Olsson taking over bass duties and new drummer Jonatan Rimsbo battering the skins - and the culmination of a progressive move toward a heavier, doom-laden sound, away from the desert rock leanings of their 2010 debut Inches From the Sun. Vol II saw the band spreading out into darker territories. After writing sessions fell apart in 2013 for a followup to Vol II (reissued in early 2015 by RidingEasy Records) Olsson and guitarist Robert Sorling scrapped nearly everything following the departure of half of the band. The two began to build from the ground up as a duo with new ideas that resulted in the invigorated Ancient of Days. It's the band's most focused and deliberate in both its complexities and simplicities. There's the pummeling heft of detuned guitars rumbling across the rugged expanse of unwieldy drums counterbalanced with moments of Master of Reality-era Sabbath's introspective acoustic breaks and Pink Floyd's Meddle-era psychedelia. These extreme shifts in dynamic give the band's third album a sense of epic depth unlike most of Spelljammer's peers.

SPINY NORMEN - SPINY NORMEN
SPINY NORMEN were an incredible mid-'70s Houston hard rock, progressive, psychedelic rock band that featured mellotron, Vox Jaguar, crunchy, heavy guitars, flute with echo effects, and lots more. A totally lost relic, this self-titled album was recorded at a community college and never released. The recording is very English, dark, mysterious and proggy, but also very acid-drenched. "Circa 1976, GERRY [DIAZ] and I would skip class, smoke whatever scrap of contraband we could scrape together and meet in the high school auditorium where there was a piano and bang out crunchy rhythms. Gerry was playing guitar, listening to Alice Cooper, hair down to his back and about the only Mexican-American in a white bread school. He was cool! So when he said one day, 'Hey man we should jam some time,' I was stoked. I found an ancient Vox Jaguar that had belonged to Fever Tree and a Kustom amp that I blew out just right, that made the most beautiful distortion, accompanied by a beloved phase shifter.

SVVAMP - SVVAMP
Swedish trio Svvamp is the real deal. Svvamp was created by three friends - Adam Johansson, Henrik Bjorklund and Erik Stahlgren - drawn together for the sake of jamming and a love of rock, folk and blues. Their resulting heavy psych sound is immediately gripping in its homespun feel and hints of Cream, Eric Bell-era Thin Lizzy, CCR and Crazy Horse.

SVVAMP - SVVAMP 2
Swedish trio Svvamp's self-titled debut was a breath of fresh air-unpretentious and free, primordial homespun classic rock that landed in the Top 20 Albums of 2016 in the Doom Charts consortium of writers and radio. The most common remark was how genuine and uncontrived it sounded, unlike most bands that posture and mimic the sounds of yesteryear. So, it may be hard to grasp how fully realized the band sounds on Svvamp 2, while still sounding as laid back as their debut. Perhaps it can be partly attributed to the band's jump from self-recording on a four-channel cassette deck to self-recording on a comparatively expansive SIX-channel system. That's two whole more tracks to fill up! The obvious comparison to the groundbreaking psychedelic albums of the late '60s, when artists began experimenting with studios moving from four, to eight to sixteen tracks, is fitting here too. Their resulting heavy psych sound bears hints of Cream, Eric Bell-era Thin Lizzy, CCR and Crazy Horse.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE FIFTH TRIP
The forthcoming latest edition of the popular compilation series of long-lost vintage 60s-70s proto-metal and stoner rock singles, Brown Acid: The Fifth Trip, is set for release on Halloween 2017. The series is curated by L.A. label RidingEasy Records and retailer/label Permanent Records. For the fifth lysergic journey, we've assembled 10 heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form anyhow. And as usual, the tracks from these impossibly rare records have all been fully cleared through the artists themselves. We've gone to great lengths to get the best possible master sources, the worst case scenario being an original 45. 'Cuz it ain't worth doing unless you do it right.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE FIRST TRIP
Expertly archived compilation (assembled by LA's Permanent Records along with Riding Easy) explores the wealth of proto-metal, pre-stoner lost rock tracks from the past 30 years. Brown Acid: The First Trip opens with the slithering buzzsaw guitars and hard-rock howl of Zeke's' "Box", a monster that gives Blue Cheer a run for their leaden blues. Snow sways into "Sunflower" with a touch of Steppenwolf's swagger and wind-in-their-hair wildness. Elsewhere, Zebra proves they were "Wasted" with a soul-inflected groove, while Bob Goodsite leans in on his wah-wah and phaser pedals, determined to out-Hendrix Jimi himself on "Faze." Raw Meat's "Stand By Girl" serves up a fierce, stomping riff intercut with Iron Butterfly style operatics. Bacchus kicks out a hostile sounding boogie, demanding to "Carry My Load." Josefus caps it all off nicely with a hooky power-pop meets Bob Seger System meets Lollipop Shoppe anthem with the undeniably catchy chorus, "hard luck - keep truckin'!"

f you thought we were getting close to the end of the Brown Acid series with our last Trip, you were dead wrong... we're only just getting rolling. The well of privately released hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal 45s is deep and we are nowhere near tapped out. Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they ain't easy to find, but they're out there if you're willing to dig.and we aren't afraid to get our hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and we've sifted through a lot of dirt, but we've dug up another ten tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there. This volume brings together eight insanely rare and skull-crushingly heavy 45s as well as two previously unreleased bangers.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE SIXTH TRIP
Six volumes worth of licensed tracks released in just three years: doing the Dark Lord's work isn't an easy job, but somebody's gotta do it, so here is Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip, with more lined up. The heads just can't get enough obscure hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal from the late '60s and '70s! This time around Riding Easy present ten deep cuts from across the continental USA and one from the neighbors up North. This trip kicks off with an outrageous number from Gold out of San Francisco circa 1970. The band used to open their sets with this over-the-top frantic jammer which is absolutely mind-blowing! Delving deeper into the depths, Canadians continue to prove that they could bang heads with the best of 'em! Heat Exchange from Toronto released the rollicking ripper "Inferno" on the Yorkville label way back in 1968 and it's still thumping almost fifty years later. Some more examples of the mind-melting tracks on this platter: Missouri isn't a state that brought us a lot of heavy 45s, but there are a handful of outstanding tracks, one of which is the funk-laced anthem "Give Me Time" by Backwood Memory from Kansas City. Youngstown, Ohio, meanwhile, might have been the Hard Rock Mecca back in the day. Travis is yet another Youngstown group that aimed to get asses out of seats and out in the streets. Truth & Janey had their incredible proto-metal masterpiece 1976 album No Rest For The Wicked; released four years earlier, "Midnight Horseman" was a 45-only track, included here! Those are just some of the fruits of months worth of record digging and detective work included on this latest installment. This is the stuff that makes life worth living, at least until the next Trip...

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE THIRD TRIP
"We continue down the wormhole of hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal here on The Third Trip with a set of tunes so obscure they can't be seen without a third eye. Most of these tracks were recorded in shack-sized studios, privately pressed for promotional purposes, and tossed out like last night's half empties only to later be discovered to be half-full, if not overflowing with greatness. The majority of these tracks are from the good ol' US of A with two exceptions, Ash-labelmate New Zealanders, Chook, and the mighty Limeys, Factory. As they say, first is the worst, second is the best, third is the one with the hairy chest. So take a shot of whiskey, shotgun a beer, and put some fuzz in between your nipples with the hairiest Trip you've taken yet. You won't be sorry you did."

WELL, THE - PAGAN SCIENCE
The impressive crux of Pagan Science, the sophomore album by Austin trio The Well, is that it's a multiplicity of itself. From the band's dual male/female vocals to their transcendently timeless sounds and erudite lyrical themes, Pagan Science is crystalline in its complexity and clarity at the same time. The Well walk an intriguing line between authentic early 70s doom/heavy psych and the more frayed-edge-of-sanity weirdness of their hometown's legendary noise rock scene, whilst also splicing in shades of chamber choir vocals, occult rock and dark folk. Pagan Science was recorded with producer/engineer Chico Jones at Micro Mega Studio in 2016. Jones also previously engineered the band's debut album Samsara with producer Mark Deutrom [Melvins, Sunn0)))] in 2013. Samsara, released late September 2014 was ranked the #1 debut album of 2014 by The Obelisk and widely praised in the press. Likewise, the band's intense - some even say "possessed" - live performances have earned them featured slots at Austin's Levitation Fest in 2015 & 2016, as well as tours with Kadavar, All Them Witches, Black Tusk and more.
