German Stoner Rock band Samavayo has unveiled the official teaser video for their upcoming seventh album “Pāyān” set to release on March 25, 2022 via Noisolution. Watch the teaser through the YouTube player below:
Samavayo deals a lot with “the end” in terms of content on their new album. The end of the bad, of the good, the end of humanity, end of the way we treat our planet. It’s about the destruction of our planet, division, racism, greed, exploitation, war, isolation, loneliness. But every end means at the same time a beginning, a new start and beginning. “Pāyān” – the seventh album of Samavayo in the 22nd year of its existence is fresh and full of energy and power!
“Our sound has never been so clear from the ground up as it is on this album. We definitely can say that after 22 years we have finally found our sound.” Musically, the record is different from its predecessors: more Heavy, more Prog, lots of anger and a pinch of Punk, Alice In Chains vocals, and last but not least some unusual guitar soli are added by a illustrious bunch of guests who visited the studio: Igor Sydorenko (Stoned Jesus), Tommi Holappa (Greenleaf, Dozer), Nick DiSalvo (Elder) and Willi Paschen (Coogans Bluff) didn’t take long to contribute.
Impressive is the cover “Talagh” by Iranian Pop superstar Googoosh, which has turned from a Psychedelic 60s Pop song into a mega Heavy, but definitely grooving song monster. But also a brute track like “Shot hot Shot Shot” or the more Psychedelic “The Mission” are outstanding.
