Limited green vinyl! Melbourne psychedelic drone rock sextet "The Black Heart Death Cult" are super fuzzed about releasing their self-titled debut LP.

It has been a labour of love, recorded over a sprawling 2 years with production from Ricky Maymi of The Brian Jonestown Massacre.

Welcome to the sonic bazaar! "The Black Heart Death Cult" debut LP is a beautifully constructed piece of gloomy verb-soaked psych rock that shifts seamlessly between tracks & styles and a real 60's sensibility of melody underpins it all to reveal some deft song writing, skilful musicianship & quality production.

Droney psych mantras, sonic opiates & space-glazed kaleido fuzz jams for the all too new dark age.

Generous application of the volume dial is recommended. The album is a brooding, gloomy beast that never sits still as it trips effortlessly from the one chord sitar-sling of "Setting Sun" to flute filled space rock of "She's a Believer" then the wall-of-verb gloomgaze of "Black Rainbow" to the psy-folk interlude of "The Magic Lamp before bringing the jams with "Aloha from Hell" & that's just the A side.

The B side is heavier & jammier with the spaced out instrumental "Rainbow Machine", speaker smashing bass fuzzed "Davidian Dream Beam", the fantastical flute-filled "Seven Gods" before completely exploding into deep space with the closer "We Love You".

"The Black Heart Death Cult" hope you enjoy the ride! For fans of The Black Angels, The Janitors, The 13th Floor Elevators.
