[BANDAS UNDER] Blaak Heat Shujaa (2013)- The Edge of an Era (stoner psych trio rock) {Francia, radicados en USA}


Trío francés que toca stoner psych con base en California, Estados Unidos.

Blaak Heat Shujaa se forma en 2008 en París, Francia, editando de manera propia su primer disco en 2010 haciendo algunos shows en Europa en aquel tiempo. Recientemente han firmado con Tee Pee Records y se mudaron a Los Angeles (CA), Estados Unidos. Allí fueron con Scott Reeder (ex Kyuss) a encerrarse en su estudio personal para trabajar las grabaciones de The Storm Generation (EP editado en diciembre de 2012) y The Edge of an Era (lanzado en abril de 2013). Tanto el EP como el LP presentan la participación especial de Ron Whitehead conocido por ser nominado al premio Novel y ser una referencia dentro de la cultura de poetas beat. En esos dos trabajos tambien cuenta con la presencia de Mario Lalli (ex Fatso Jetso y actual Yawning Man).




Blaak Heat Shujaa’s clamorous combination of cacophonic genres, a dissonant symphony unveiling visions of great natural expanses, is unlike any other. The trio’s novelty resides in a transcendental tension between its heavy rock roots and an organic inclination to drift towards multiple forms of psychedelia. While they can rock out harder than many ‘stoner’ rock and metal outfits, the Blaak Heat members pay homage to the vast collection of mind-expanding sounds they grew up on: neo-psychedelia, surf rock, spaghetti westerns, Middle Eastern scales and Far Eastern melodies… The thickest, most colorful bass lines coexist with flying reverb guitars, while ethereal yet in-your-face chants and loud, tribal drums join forces and make way for a unique breed of rock’n’roll: heavy mental.

Blaak Heat Shujaa formed in 2008 in Paris, France, released its debut album in 2010 and put multiple European expeditions behind them. Recently signed to TeePee Records, the now Los Angeles-based trio spent the summer of 2012 at Kyuss’s Scott Reeder’s desert ranch recording The Storm Generation EP (out December 11, 2012), as well as a full length record, The Edge Of An Era (due April 9, 2013). The EP and full length will feature guest appearances by Nobel Prize-nominated gonzo poet Ron Whitehead and desert rock pioneer Mario Lalli. Pure expressions of Blaak Heat’s signature psychedelia, these ground breaking releases will undoubtedly shake up the current state of underground rock’n’roll.
