Chewbaccas - Demodotdotdot
This is an early demo from the Chewbaccas, who are recording their first CD now. The sound is not surf, but is disturbed and intriguing space rock in the sixties sense of that tag. Mostly non melodic, like a blend of deathcore and an inverted Hawkwind.
Picks: Zenon, Astro-Q, Nebo Zoyvot 1959, Zemm-la Man, Mi Vecino es un Vampiro, Atmosfera Zero, Shuttle Mission to Montreal, Uranus

Track by Track Review


Zenon dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

Chunky fuzz and dark swirl created by rapid modulation. Dark, disturbed, dissonant, and ugly, with an air of angular coolness.

Astro-Q dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

Dark and bordering on sludge, like what might have happened if Davie Allan had fronted Killing Joke. Swirly and distorted, like biker cosmonauts on a milk run to Andromeda. Some double picked lines take it inside a devil cruncher. Ominous and cool.

Nebo Zoyvot 1959 dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

"Nebo Zoyvot 1959" is a slow behemoth of a bad dream. Electro sludge, dark slumber, disturbed distortion, nightmare illusion... yes, it's like that!

Zemm-la Man dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

A sub surf guitar riff drives this pulsing psycho daze, with a relentless lumbering pace and mechanical drums. Dark and menacing.

Mi Vecino es un Vampiro dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

Like an inverted "Out Of Limits," this screams for relief from the relentless control of the Rubella Legion. Sci-fi nightmare soundtrack.

Atmosfera Zero dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

Dark and throbbing, with ultra fuzz and scary grumble. Almost monotonous in its relentlessness, yet hard to get away from.

Shuttle Mission to Montreal dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

Slow metallic chunka chunka and electro sequencing. "Shuttle Mission to Montreal" is the story of a journey as told through the cockpit recorder of a shuttle. More lumber and weirdness than song.

Uranus dotdotdot
Space Rock (Instrumental)

"Uranus" is kinda like a sludgy low brow Hawkwind space epic, with big guitar and intense grumble. The menacing voice from the Great Big Head endangers all who listen.
