a heavy psych doom trio from Los Angeles throwing down lush harmonies and psychedelic crushing riffs and grooves. Consisting of Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals, Mariana Fiel on bass and vocals, and Megan Mullins on drums, they have created a sound that echoes both past and future incarnations of doom and psychedelia. - https://www.highpriestessmusic.com/
This heavy rock band has musical influences that run the gamut from '70s classic rockers to the modern heavy-hitters in the desert, doom, and stoner rock scene, along with any music from any decade or genre that grooves and/or rocks. Having cut their teeth in various bands around LA for the past 5 years, the time was right in mid-2014 to coalesce in the studio and start turning heavy riffs and beats into catchy tunes. Seven songs made the cut onto the self-titled debut album 'Salem's Bend', which was released on Bandcamp in the tail-end of December 2015. The album garnered some early praise at heavy music blogs, with one great reviewer commenting: "You want dynamics? Salem’s Bend is practically a liquid. 'Dynamics' is just a buzz word until it’s wielded by these sprightly upstarts." Another reviewer graciously wrote, "They have forged their own searing, raucous guitars; intense, deep bass; and athletic, punctuated stickwork around some of the most intelligently interesting melodies to float through the stonersphere in quite some time." - https://www.facebook.com/salemsbend/
A true four-piece, Portland, Oregon's Ape Machine has been called "a rock and roll band with a finger on the pulse of the 70's and their asses firmly in the present" and "real heavy-psych for the iPhone generation" that delivers "true guts and glory rock and roll." Combining psychedelic, classic and progressive rock with arena-worthy metal, bluesy stoner-rock and catchy riffs in odd signatures, Ape Machine's music carries an organic depth and warmth rarely heard since the time of rock's glorious early years (or your Dad's bad ass record collection) infused with an exceptional modern sensibility. - https://www.heavypsychsounds.com
