"Another day, another psychedelic jam band. Today's offering comes from Nashville Tennessee's Hellbender! With an opener, "Neon Cross", that tips the proverbial hat to the likes of Blue Cheer and Atomic Rooster whilst indulging in plenty of slap-back reverb on the vocals, it’s not long before I find my head bobbing along to the beat. I even catch myself doing a bit of (terrible) air drumming! The standout track for me is the second – “The Ballad of Gray Livers”, musically something that could have come from the thundering fret-hand of Tatsu Mikami. Check out Sonic Flower to see what I mean! What starts as a colossal thundering riff-laden corker of a track gives way to something far calmer and more esoteric around the 3 minute mark. I must admit that I am a sucker for slide guitar being put to good use in heavy music, and this track does it in spades."



"For the organ-addicted (oo-err!), however, it's the subsequent two-part psychedelic prog epic "Supergiant" that will please! Elements of luminaries such as Hawkwind, Captain Beyond and German acts such as Brainticket, launch this song into the stratosphere. It will have you reaching for the peyote and freaking out to the space-echo and frantic drums as they reach a blissful crescendo before slowing to a scattered crawl in the middle, only to relaunch into full 70s riff-o-rama for the second part."
