Bastia, France based Psychedelic Desert Rock/Doom band Alconaut published the official visualizer for full second album “Endless Skies” out on May 12, 2023. Watch the video through the YouTube palyer below:
“Endless Skies” is the second album of Alconaut mixing the traditional elements of Stoner, Doom, Prog Rock and Folk. The band after “Sand Turns to Tide” tends on this album towards something softer depicting a nocturnal space atmosphere and letting you travel through the cosmos to find rest and redemption. Nevertheless on this album we can find energetic musical parts between thrash and heavy as they know so well how to do it on their previous albums like “Slugs” or “Gelmir’s Path.” The trio offers you in the middle of the album three songs with a more progressive structure than the rest of the album, the tracks “Ascending” form the backbone of the album and its concept is centered on the atmosphere of these songs.
Alconaut formed in 2016 in Bastia, Corsica by Georges Agostini on vocals and guitars, Kevin Albertini on bass, and Antoine-Joseph Marini on drums.
The band started playing at that time covers which were generally in the stoner such as Sleep, Fu Manchu, The Sword, Mars Red Sky etc… After making some concerts, the group wanted to go further and began to compose and bring everyone’s influences together to realize their first album entitled “Sand Turns To Tides,” the trio extends a relatively inspired universe of everything in the stoner in general, thanks to the compositions, illustrations and design produced by one of the band’s members.
Alconaut acquires complete and immersive imagery that allows the listener to find a universe fantastic, we will find colossal mastodons hammering the dunes of a desert transported by a sand whale or a furious biker crossing with speed mountains of this world but a theme that is set in front is that of the Alconaut (found in the song “Space Controller“) which is a space explorer searching the universe every alcoholic drink that exists.
“Endless Skies” was released on May 12th as Digipack CD and can be streamed on all major digital platforms. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Vincenzu Lota at Atom Studio, Biguglia. Artwork by Antoine-Joseph Marini.
