Renate/Cordate is a Psychedelic Stoner Rock/Space-Rock/Post-Metal collective from Finland

The members are:


Now here is a wonderful sounding combination of sounds you rarely hear. Renate/Cordate is a psychedelic rock band blending Space Rock, Stoner Rock along with heavy slabs of blistering Post-Metal riffs.

Their S/T debut album is a superb collection of sounds that blasts through some of my favourite musical genres. Space Rock, Stoner and Post-Metal. Finland’s Sludge/Stoner Metal Bands have always have had a knack of doing something different outside of the box. – Baulta, Demonic Death Judge, Outtwailed and Mr Peter Hayden. Now Renate/Cordate just add to that cool reputation.

Parts Karma To Burn blended with Pelican style riffage make this an unmissable album from the very first listen. Its Space Rock vibes give this album a haunting psychedelic edge, which oozes atmosphere and tension through out the 30 minute running time.

It has a superb fuzz based edge especially on tracks – The River Troll and Conjuring Power. Both showing what a highly inventive band Renate/Cordate actually are. If you are a fan of Instrumental Rock then you are seriously missing out here. As Renate/Cordate, have some truly awesome riffs at their disposal.

It is cool that each of the four songs run for about 7mins each. Just four epic tunes to instantly draw you in with some excellent Stoner Rock/Post-Metal riffs. The tracks take time in building up momentum but once they are in the heavier sonic territory then there is no turning back. Strap yourself in as you are in for a wild ride.

Renate/Cordate S/T debut album is Definitely one of the best Instrumental Rock Albums of 2013. You need to buy this excellent album now. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent and Highly Recommended.

You can buy the album now from BandCamp.
