Lobster Priest – Hallucinatory Pagoda

God damn, when it comes to some really brain-frying ultra psychedelic fuzz rock, UK appears to be leading the way with highly volatile and explosive punches from behemoths such as Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, Skullflower, The Heads, and many more. Another fine offering from the total freakout camp is Lobster Priest from Newcastle Upon Tyne. Over 80 minutes of slow burners built around huge, fried riffs with layers upon layers of reverb and delay building around them until everything sounds more like the sea of pure guitar sludge than psychedelic rock. I think it might get so psychedelic that it’s like those moments when the drugs kick in too hard and you’re focusing like hell on just not dying. Highly recommended!
