1000mods are a 4 Piece Desert-Rock/Stoner Metal band Chiliomodi, Greece

The members are:

Dani / Bass & Vox
Giannis / Guitars
George / Guitars
Lab / Drums

1000mods are a band who have been on the blog before. They are a band we are big fans of here. They have been on a few other cool blogs as well. Their 2011 debut album - Super Van Vacation - made my best records of 2011 list.

Well the guys are back with their stunning new EP - Valley Of Sand - A 4 song and 35 minute magical ride full of eerie desert based psych/stoner rock riffs. 3 of the songs here are from their superb debut album but all played live.

The centerpiece of the EP has to be the 17 minute epic - Valley Of Sand - A song that will transport you to the harsh territories of the hot desert sun. It takes time building up the atmosphere. Dreamy Desert Rock riffs which has extra layers of Fuzz, Psych Rock and lashings of huge Stoner Rock riffs near the end of the track. Dani sounds like he is chanting directly to the Sun Gods. He is on a journey of wonder and enlightenment but  he is expertly backed up by his fellow band members.

It's great to have these guys back as they are one of the best Stoner Rock bands Greece has to offer.

Valley Of Sand is available to buy from BandCamp now. Along with their other releases. Or you can head over to their Last.Fm Page and download Super Van Vacation from their for free. See what your missing out on!!!

Now the guys are going to head out on a European Tour. Catch them while you can.
