Prophets Of Saturn are set to release their second album ‘Retronauts’ on 17th July 2015.
Hailing from the British Midlands, English psych-metal four-piece Prophets of Saturn return this July with a follow-up to their 2013, self-titled debut on the Birmingham-based label HeviSike Records.
A sound laced in equal measure with both the usual and unusual, from a band possessed to the point of lunacy with channelling bad acid trips, occultism and electrified doom through a fuzz box to get out of it the desired winding riffs and demented wails.
Like their debut – originally released on Cosmic Tomb and later rereleased by HeviSike Records on limited edition CD and cassette – ‘Retronauts’ is a must-hear for fans of spaced-out, groove-laden metal. The kind committed to analogue tape in the most esoteric of studios and best heard live through vintage stacks.
Prophets of Saturn also have a couple of live dates this summer in support of the album release:
Fri, 17th July – Chameleon Arts Cafe, Nottingham (w. Witchsorrow and Iron Void)
Sat, 1st August – The Rigger, Newcastle-Under-Lyme (w. Trippy Wicked & The Cosmic Children of The Knight and Space Witch)
Prophets of Saturn are:
Ben Shone (Guitars)
Max Mead (Bass)
Duncan Torrance (Drums)
George Sanderson (Vocals)
