ECSTATIC VISION’s forthcoming Raw Rock Fury exhibits the band locking in on primordial, troglodyte Detroit rock grooves, krautian motorik sounds that recall the obscure one-time collaboration between NEU and the MC5. Grimy harmonica flourishes that evoke Beefheart at his most savage and the Hawkwindian, primal world heavy psych that their debut expertly showcased.
ECSTATIC VISION introduced their brand of heavy primal psych influenced by groups like Hawkwind, Aphrodites Child, Can and early Amon Duul ll back in late 2013. Formed in Philadelphia to primarily “play what they wanted to hear,” the band quickly rose to those in the know as a force to be reckoned with. ECSTATIC VISION signed to Relapse Records on the power of a demo and their psychedelic freak out, primal live concerts.
Now in 2017, ECSTATIC VISION return with their sophomore release, Raw Rock Fury, an even more tripped out showcasing of the band’s raucous vibes. The addition of multi-instrumentalist Kevin Nickles (Saxophone/Flute/Guitar) has helped the band reach beyond the void and further create a sense of auditory hallucination. Prepare for one of the dirtiest sounding recordings since MC5’s Kick Out the Jams.
