Heavy Psych Sounds announce the re-release of High Reeper‘s self-titled debut album this January 11, 2021 which will include a brand new artwork and two bonus tracks. Their blazing cover of US Doom legends Pentagram‘s “Hurricane” is one of them, watch the official music video below:
“All of us love Pentagram, especially the early stuff, so we thought it would be cool if we did a track from that era. It’s an overlooked track but we all think it rocks.” says the band.
Recorded in 2017, High Reeper‘s self-titled debut was produced, engineered and mixed by bass player Shane Trimble at TTR studios in Philadelphia and at his home studio Delwood Sound in Delaware. The production is laced with old school elements while still maintaining the focus of a modern release. The High Reeper repress will be issued on January 11, 2021 and available to preorder now as:
– Test Press
– Ultra Ltd Blue/Purple Vinyl
– Black Vinyl
– Digipak and digital
High Reeper’s self titled debut is an unapologetic punch to the face for fans of early ‘70s proto-metal. The sound and smell of leather, weed, boozing, gambling and death permeate the record from start to finish. Nine tracks that run from uptempo straight ahead rock, to slowed down, heavy, early doom. With a rhythm section throwing down grooves that are deeper than the darkest abyss and guitars big enough to put a hole in your chest, the record’s finale hits just as hard as its opening track. Vocals that soar above the guitars with laser like precision, while delivering a direct hit to your soul.
