    Hippie Death Cult

    Doom Metal

    Hippie Death Cult has proven to be one of the more exciting hard rock bands to surface in recent years, They have earned a stellar reputation both for live performance and recorded material from fans and critics alike. The Portland, Oregon based quartet consists of members - Eddie Brnabic, Ben Jackson, Ryan Moore and Laura Phillips. They began writing and performing in early 2018, but the roots of HDC go much deeper. A stream of musical consciousness swept over guitarist Eddie Brnabic inspiring him to create the band. It would take a few lineup attempts and a little luck to bring the right members together. Laura Phillips was the first to help solidify the vision. A veteran of the Portland music scene she not only had the skills necessary to compliment Eddie's sound but she also brought with her drummer Ryan Moore. Ben Jackson was added to the trio and brought to the music his rich voice, textured keyboards and deep lyricism. With a solid lineup in place, they set out with fierce dedication to rehearse, record and perform a string of successful live shows securing a deal with Cursed Tongue Records, who released their debut album “111” in 2019.

     

    Hippie Death Cult is a hard rock band. Shades of Black Sabbath, The Alice Cooper Band, Blizzard Of Ozz, Megadeth, and Soundgarden among others can be traced through their music.  At their core they are true to these roots while being driven to push new ideas. The vibe is both timeless and immediately fresh. 

     

    2020 was a productive year for HDC. They completed material for Magnetic Eye Records - "Best Of Black Sabbath Compilation", music for the independent film "All Gone Wrong", and signed a new record deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release "Doom Sessions Vol 5" and their sophomore album release "Circle Of Days" in 2021. There is an intense desire to deliver this new body of work to the people so keep a close watch on Hippie Death Cults touring schedule.

    ....

    "Every so often something gets me really charged.  I'm telling you guys, this is becoming more and more a rarity for me. 

    Not a lot triggers that excitement of new discovery anymore.  I'm getting old 'n' jaded. Nevertheless, the power of the Riff prevails!  Introducing my favorite new find: HIPPIE DEATH CULT from Portland, Oregon. Hippie Death Cult is one of the freshest, most vibrant bands to come out of Portland in quite some while."

     

    Give ear... -BillyGoat (Doomed & Stoned)

    ...

     

    "I don’t typically add just flat out singles to my collection, but Hippie Death Cult have something special about to go down in the heavy scene. They have 3 singles out there and some trippy youtube videos of those songs that indicate their upcoming debut full length just may be something to be anticipating. I know I can’t wait to hear more, take a listen, I think you’ll agree. Portland, Oregon strikes again."

     

    -Bucky Brown (Ripple Music/Doom Charts)

    ...

    B-b-b-blown away. This here is utmost fire! I'm ready for life-long membership of the Hippie Death Cult, where do I sign up??

    Robots of the Ancient World

    Doom Metal

    Forged thanks to a rare 2015 planetary alignment, ROBOTS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD made an immediate impact with a meteor shower of cosmic grooves and high-octane riffs in the galactic vortex where doom, psych, and stoner rock collide. As a live act, they are a force with which to be reckoned and their 2019 debut Cosmic Riders has garnered over 300,000 plays and counting on digital streaming sites, including Bandcamp, Spotify, and YouTube.

    Eager to take their sound to uncharted regions of the galaxy, ROBOTS OF THE ANCIENT WORLDentered Seattle’s Soundhouse Studios in February 2020 to record with Jack Endino, famed sonic architect of the grunge revolution, and his longtime protégé Mikel Perkins. They emerged through the wormhole with Mystic Goddess, a forty-three-minute hallucinatory sound excursion through a wide range of styles that keeps listeners engaged while never losing focus or sacrificing flow.

    “Raw, powerful, no nonsense production is what we were seeking,” says guitarist Justin Laubscher. After connecting with Endino through a friend and veteran of the grunge wars, Laubscher says the band “scraped up every nickel we could and went for it.”

    Recorded, mixed, and mastered in six days, Mystic Goddess almost crashed and burned prior to liftoff. Four days in, Endino abruptly fell ill, “wrecked from this weird flu from hell,” according to Laubscher. “At the time, COVID-19 was not yet a thing in the US.” Perkins engineered the final two days of tracking. “Perkins is a legend, stepped in without missing a beat, and we all felt at ease. He entertained our more fringe ideas, the ones up until that point I was apprehensive to present to Jack.” Endino eventually finished the mixes remotely and Perkins is credited as co-producer.

    Musically, the new album includes nods to stoner rock titans like the Stooges, Kyuss, and Boris but the band also wasn’t afraid to borrow ideas from Guns ‘N’ Roses and Santana, while deep diving into their usual lyrical fetishes.

    “I’m intrigued by psychedelics, esotericism, and conspiracy theories. I love to go deep with secret societies, other dimensions, and all that jazz. So, when you hear the Carl Sagan intro to ‘Cosmic Riders’ or David Icke closing out ‘Mystic Goddess,’ it’s a tribute,” notes Laubscher, “a nod to those dudes who are a creative inspiration for my song writing.”

    In advance of the release of Mystic GoddessROBOTS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD is pleased to unveil the record’s hypnotic opening title track. Vocalist Caleb Weidenbach comments, “I think for us, this song really is in a way a blueprint to our sound. Justin showed up with these killer riffs and I was hooked on the track. A lot of times my lyrics come from a place of feeling and the words often just spill out of my mouth when they are ready. It’s about women who captivate you, it’s about loneliness and those times we feel lost. I was going through some heavy shit at that time and this song pulled out a lot of the feelings.”
