Cosmic Reaper – self-titled LP
The self-titled debut album from North Carolina’s heavyweight space heads. Classic 70’s attitude, with sci-fi oriented lyrics, loud and doomy, but without testing your endurence too hard. Somewhere between the creepy, Hammerhouse riffs of Electric Wizard, the dusty retro rock of Kyuss, and the more chanty, lighter-weight vocals of Uncle Acid And the Deadbeats. I think deep down we are all cosmic reapers at heart, and it’s important to be reminded of that occasionally.
