The Sludgelord News - Desert Suns Vinyl on Hevisike Records


San Diego, CA stoner rockers DESERT SUNS release their self titled debut LP on vinyl through HeviSike Records in April 2015. The four-piece demonstrate versatility unseen  amongst their contemporaries; this six-song debut sees the band touch on psychedelia, blues-rock and doom.

The group gained attention in late 2014 after their stoner rock anthem SPACE PUSSY was featured on Classic Rock Magazine’s (UK) cover-mount  compilation ‘The Levee Breaks’ (November 2014).

Fans of early 70s proto-metal acts such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Steppenwolf and Blue Cheer will appreciate the classic
groove demonstrated on this record, as will followers of modern stoner rockers Fu Manchu, Kadavar, Graveyard and Clutch.

Haunting lyrics of alienation accompany the listener on ajourney through the sinister and the beautiful. Limited to just 300 copies, this one time press LP is manufactured with vinyl enthusiasts in
mind; mastered specifically for the format by renowned multi-instrumentalist Tony Reed (Mos Generator/Stone Axe) at HeavyHead Recording Co in Washington, USA and
pressed on high grade colour vinyl. Cover art is provided by San Diego’s own Jimmy Ovadia.
