"FIRST MATTER represents Sungod's first recorded excursions into the vastness of the inner space. The sonic forms move from driving 70's psychedelia to desolate western soundscapes and create a cerebral amalgam of heavy riffs, hypnotic drones, and pulsing rhythms. Captured to analog tape, the nature of the sound is organic, warm and intimate. This quality of the recording, combined with the exploratory nature of the music, make the two-piece's cosmic collection of improvisations and compositions an ideal soundtrack for the altered mind.
FIRST MATTER will see a limited vinyl release with an elaborately decorated gatefold sleeve that informs and accentuates the mystical nature of the sonic rituals. Far-reaching and unrelenting, prepare for the SUNGOD and perish in his light."
Woah! These psychedelic vikings just blew my fragile egg-shell mind. Yuri Gagarin take the essence of space rock and distill it to its purest, most undiluted form, like vodka from moon dust. Thank heavens they keep things simple - no proggy experiments or Floydian slips - proving punk's point that the secret to great rock and roll isn't rocket science: - its rocket fuel. Mushroom Head
On board of this "spaceship of the future," be ready for "inconceivable adventures." Groovy wave of sounds, this album sounds to me as if "The early universe rang with the sound of countless cosmic bells, which filled the primordial darkness with ripples like the surface of a pond pounded by stones." [quote from a science article] ... David Yvinec
Absolutely fantastic tape, All Them Witches are without a doubt one of the best - blues, psychedelic, whatever! - bands out there right now. Amazing songwriting, performances, and chemistry as a band. Can't wait to see what these guys do next. Miles
