Hailing from the British Midlands, English psych-metal four-piece Prophets of Saturn return this July with a follow-up to 2013, self-titled debut on the Birmingham-based label HeviSike Records.
Offering up an unabashed and heady excursion into the dope-smoking amplifier-worship of Pentagram, Saint Vitus and Electric Wizard, Retronauts is for neither the faint of heart nor mind. Traversing the cosmic ley-lines of times gone by like an antiquarian journey through the lineage of English proto-metal, a lysergic love of Cream, The Beatles and fellow Midlanders Black Sabbath permeate Prophets of Saturn’s sound. A love laced in equal measure with both the usual and unusual; the kind you’d come to expect from a band possessed to the point of lunacy with channeling bad acid trips, occultism and electrified doom through a fuzz box, just to get out of it the desired winding riffs and demented wails.
