"Lord Space Devil" (Belgium - 2008), the new release of COSMIC TRIP MACHINE is a wonderful folk-psych gem. Highly recommended !!!
Cosmic Trip Machine, named in tribute to 60’s and 70’s records, started by recording one album, shortly after Will and Majnun first group split (with angry quarrels and strong divergence in opinion). The two friends collected materials for an opus called Lord Space Devil : unreleased songs, instrumentals, experimental and conceptual ideas. In studio, Cosmic Trip Machine discovered musical freedom and were addicted immediately. The result is Lord Space Devil, an experimental psychedelic folk album with songs that release themselves of any constraints and explore differing sonic boundaries (odd instruments, studio effects, imaginative rock inspired by indian music and B-movies). The result can be downloaded free on band's website. Cosmic Trip Machine is a moving entity, constantly evolving, searching for musicians to play live with.
Band members :
Will Z. : steel-string acoustic guitar, vocals, sitar, bass, organ, Siel keyboards, Antonelli plastic shit, percussions, rainstick, tambourine, gong, and screams.
Majnun : electric guitar, steel-string acoustic guitar, classical guitar, guitar-sitar, percussions, flute, and satanic voices (the narrator).
You can download it for free on their website.
