Vibravoid are the big bang of German neo-Kraut and Psychedelic Rock.

Over the last 35 years, Vibravoid have released 22 studio albums, countless live albums, singles and EPs that have reached top positions. “Live At Finkenbach 2015” made it to number 2 in the official vinyl sales charts, “Live At Rheinkaut Festival” stayed in the top 20 of the CD sales charts for several weeks and climbed into the top 10.

Psych¬†activist Dr. Koch founded the Light Show Society D√ľsseldorf back in 1988. The¬†Vibravoid Kollektiv¬†was founded in 1990 as the only thing missing was a suitable band for the light shows. Already in the early 1990s, Vibravoid emerged as the most influential new group from D√ľsseldorf. For example, in the early phase of stoner metal and the resulting misuse of the term “Psychedelic,” Vibravoid was invited to many stoner festivals. To the astonishment of the audience, Vibravoid presented songs by Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd, Silver Apples, CAN or the Beatles, which were unknown to the Stoner disciples at the time and were interpreted as songs by Vibravoid as the style hardly differed. Likewise, the guests had never seen a “Psychedelic light show” in the style of the 1960s to match the music – today all a standard in this genre.

Vibravoid has always refused to be labeled “Stoner band.”

As children of the flower power generation, Vibravoid only learned from the first wave of Psychedelic and Krautrock.

Psychedelic¬†and¬†Krautrock, because what is marketed today as “Psych- and Krautrock” did not exist back then and had to be invented by bands like Vibravoid. In 2008, Vibravoid not only recorded their last album with the legendary flower power inventor Sky Saxon (The Seeds), but also the testament of an entire generation. Vibravoid‘s career is unique, because even today Vibravoid is still underground. The band prefers to set trends rather than follow them. In 1996, Vibravoid celebrated the world’s only anniversary event at London’s UFO Club. In 2001, Vibravoid organized the first modern “Psych Fest” with just 3 bands, as the scene had nothing more to offer at the time.

With “Void Vibration,” the band released the world’s first “Op Art Picture Disc Set” in 2002, followed by “Timemazine Woman,” the first and so far only “Kinetic Op Art Disc” – a record that creates “Op Art Effects” by moving the A and B sides. You have to see this record, because it’s hard to imagine that something like this is even possible!

Vibravoid – We Cannot Awake

New album¬†“We Cannot Awake”¬†is the perfect soundtrack for THC legalization and¬†Vibravoid¬†is the essence of D√ľsseldorf genetics. They create musical fever dreamscapes that are stronger than LSD.¬†“We Cannot Awake”¬†is the¬†“In A Gadda Da Vida”¬†of Generation X.¬†Vibravoid¬†haven’t released a real longtrack for several records, but now the band is making up for this and adding a few more hits.

With¬†“Get To You,”¬†Vibravoid¬†deliver the Psychedelic earworm for every large-space disco. Grooving Pop Music with hymenic hooks meets the effects wall of the 1960s. The ideal music for any highway.

The band’s love of¬†The Byrds¬†is obvious from tracks like¬†“Nothing Is Wrong”¬†or¬†“A Comment On The Current Times”¬†– but the combination with D√ľsseldorf’s “Motorik Sound” is a completely new level on which Psychedelic Music can work.¬†“The End Of The Game”¬†still shows¬†Vibravoid¬†as the German masters of the fuzz effect. Ultra Psychedelic guitar sounds and echo effects create a maelstrom that pulls the listener into the spell of the complex rhythm.¬†Vibravoidare not stingy with creative ideas, but still shake themselves out of their sleeves after 35!

Side A closes with¬†“On Empty Streets”¬†and paints a dystopian picture, yet¬†Vibravoid¬†manage to crank up the pop factor so high that the riffs almost burn themselves into your consciousness… expanding it. All the sound effects are perfectly embedded, you hardly notice that this is actually highly Experimental Music in the sense of the D√ľsseldorf school.

We Cannot Awake”¬†completely fills side B with over 20 minutes. Musically, the listener is in for a very special experience. Vibravoid fuse their D√ľsseldorf sound with the year 2024 at the highest level.¬†“We Cannot Awake”¬†is a journey into the abysses of human existence and other depths of the outer cosmos. Driving beats and interstellar frequencies channel the primal fear of tehe unknown, because this music is dangerous. Sonic carpets of strychnine and psylocibin. Magical mushrooms. Time is running out. We cannot awake!
