▲▲▲ "SPACE MOUNTAIN PART I: DESERT DJILO" - SINGLE RELEASE AND VIDEO PREMIERE ▲▲▲

“‘Desert Djilo’ is the opening section of our 20-minute instrumental track ‘Space Mountain’, completely improvised and recorded live in the studio, it was in itself part of a larger jam. This is a jam within a jam, synth follows bass follows drums follows fiddle. The sound of the radioactive desert.”

Premieres: Friday 5th of November 19:00 GMT

Here you can watch the video for our new track 'Crater Creator', taken from 'The Intergalactic Connection - Exploring the Sideral Remote Hyperspace' split release with Italian psych behemoths GIÖBIA.

The split was released via Heavy Psych Sounds on October 29th 2021.

The video is a reimagining of the 1961 science fiction epic The Phantom Planet, which was proclaimed a "science shocker for the space age!!".

▲▲▲ INTERGALACTIC CONNECTION RELEASE ▲▲▲


Excited to announce the release of 'the psychedelic-space split of the century!!' in collaboration with Italian psychers Giöbia and Heavy Psych Sounds Records!



“The Intergalactic Connection – Exploring The Sideral Remote Hyperspace”


It’s a split album that came from deep deep space !!!

Here Giöbia meets The Cosmic Dead, two of the best modern space-rock bands you can find. The Italian quartet come with 3 incredible songs, while the Scottish guys deliver a 19 minute long suite.

This piece of psychedelic journey is a travel inside the universe, 4 tracks full of heavy psych and space rock riffs that will bring you into a psychedelic vortex with no way out!

A must-have for all the space travelers. Fans of Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, UFO and Gong will be more than enthusiastic… It’s a Space Ritual journey!!
