Trip Back To The Old School...

Saturna - The Kingdom Of Spirit (2012)


It's been a while since we've been sent anything on the more retro side and I don't know about you lot but I for one have really missed it. Luckily the Spanish dirt rock quintet Saturna have come to the rescue with some sweet 70's inspired rockin'. Trust me when I say 'sweet', because this little beauty of an album is so crammed full of retro riffs and dirty fuzz that it may just make your head explode! But thats the byproduct of a decade of knocking around in different outfits before settling down under one name and pooling the collective talent... and boy does that show. Like a blitz of late Sabbath, (incorporating that early doom sound and classic rock drive) and elements of modern day prog like Serpent Throne or Dozer. On the whole it's makes for a pretty down tempo affair but with a strange aura of up beat melancholy... If that makes any sense what so ever? Think of it as doom but with bucket loads of enthusiasm behind it. Either way I can pretty much guarantee that you're gonna love it! Give them a try and please hit up the guys various sites for more info and details on where to pick up a physical copy of the album and show some love. I believe its out now on Seven Snakes Records.
