I tend to stay away from reviewing singles as I like to focus on EP's and Albums. But am going to make an exception for Red Mountains new single – Sun. Red Mountains are a Psychedelic Stoner Metal Band from Norway who are going to release their debut album in Sept 2015. Such a long fucking wait as their new song – Sun – is incredible. I've been listening to this song for the last 24 hours or so and it's possibly one of the finest Stoner Metal songs I've heard this year.

It's an intriguing mix of Desert Rock, Fuzz Rock, Psychedelic Rock and Stoner Metal that gives Red Mountains a heavy and original sound all of their own. The vocals bring an air of confidence and grizzled authority to a band that feels they have seen it all. Though it's the music that's the winning factor here as Red Mountains prove they're going to be one of the most talked about bands to look out for in 2015. Sun is loud, heavy, distorted and even uplifting as Red Mountains will put you in an hypnotic trance.

It's been a very long time that a single has left me feeling very excited to hear a bands debut album. Red Mountains you definitely have my attention and I think a huge number of other people in the months to come as this song is a stone-cold classic in the making. WOW.
