Earthless - From the Ages (2013 Tee Pee Records)

From the Ages
2013 Tee Pee Records

Earthless, a ridiculously talented power trio from San Diego, released a new album From the Ages in 2013 and it's one of the most unrelenting slabs of acid metal in recent memory.  guitarist Isaiah Mitchell pulls out all of the guitar pyrotechnics of Hendrix, the dreamy atmospherics of Trower, the flair of Eddie Van Halen, Iommi's riffage, and the full tilt jams of Jimmy Page all at once, and the the solid iron core of the rhythm section (bassist Mike Eginton and drummer Mario Rubalcaba) provide the gravity that holds everything together.  their mostly-instrumental jams are retardedly over the top...  when every other similar group would have long ago tapped out, Earthless routinely puts it in a higher gear and pushes on, spiraling straight into the sun for ten, fifteen, twenty, THRITY+ minutes longer.

they honed their sound on 2005's Sonic Prayer and Rhythms From a Cosmic Sky in 2007, but From the Ages is arguably their most focused to date.  and if their album Live At Roadburn and the videos of their live performances are any indication, they are a must-see.  i will be eager to soak in their sounds at the Austin Psych Fest this spring.
