ECSTATIC VISION

In 2017 Philadelphia's heavy psych quartet ECSTATIC VISION returned with their 2nd LP Raw Rock Fury. Raw Rock Fury exhibited the band locking in on primordial, troglodyte Detroit rock grooves, krautian motorik sounds that recall the obscure one-time collaboration between NEU and the MC5, grimy harmonica flourishes that evoke Beefheart at his most savage, and the Hawkwindian, primal world heavy psych their debut showcased. Almost one year later ECSTATIC VISION unleashed UNDER THE INFLUENCE, a collection of six RAW, FUZZY, PSYCHEDELIC slabs of COSMIC ROCK. UNDER THE INFLUENCE sees the band covering tracks by some of their biggest influences; The stoner doom sounds that came out of ZAMBIA in the early/mid 70s that is known as ZAM ROCK, the godfathers of space-rock HAWKWIND, and the early kings of Detroit rock n' Roll THE MC5, all delivered with ECSTATIC VISION's signature bone crushing, blown-out in-all-the-right-ways recording style.

"Louder, faster, heavier, and spacier, Ecstatic Vision finds its mojo in Raw Rock Fury" - AUSTIN CHRONICLE

"A hallucinogenic guitar behemoth that hits like a raging party, powered by surging bass and joyous blasts of saxophone" - STEREOGUM

"roaring organs, screaming guitars, and the occasional squawking saxophone seem always to be preparing for another narcotic liftoff" -PITCHFORK

SABBRA CADABRA

Sabbra Cadabra was established in early 1993 when the tribute band concept was in its infancy. Wishing to fill the empty space that had been left when the original line-up of Black Sabbath parted ways in the late seventies, the founding members ventured into the void and recreated the sights and sounds of the band that has since inspired so many others. The rest is history...

Sabbra Cadabra honors the original music of Black Sabbath by covering the material with inspired accuracy and devout respect., carrying the audience back in time to experience the closest thing to a Black Sabbath concert ~ somewhere in the seventies…

SUN VOYAGER

Hailing from the mountains of New York's Hudson Valley region, Sun Voyager, currently based in New York City, found their sound in a frigid shed during some long winters. You could call it psychedelic, you could call it stoner, and you can find traces of desert, doom, and anything in between.

The Obelisk recently called it "cosmic grunge." Recyclable Sounds calls it "traditionalist post-Hawkwind moto-space rock." Give whatever name you want to their sound, they've never played by any rules.

In the year prior to releasing their debut album, Seismic Vibes, they performed at Meltasia, Indian Summer, SX Stoner Jam, Stoner Daze, SXSW, Desert Daze SXSW Showcase, and embarked on two US tours. In the year that followed, they went on another run to Texas, supported heavy psych juggernauts Ruby the Hatchet and The Well, Division Brewing released a Sun Voyager Double IPA, and they solidified a spot on the inaugural Desertfest NYC. "If you’re a connoisseur of the latest in fuzzed-out heavy music, Sun Voyager are a band that should have a place on your radar." - Decibel Magazine

GRAVE BATHERS

Formed in late 2018 by members of Shining Mirrors (NY) and The Bad Larrys (Philly).

We moved to a funeral parlor in Fishtown, Philadelphia to created a venue called the Cadaver Club in which Grave Bathers is the house band. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Iron Claw, Gift, and Xarhanga we're reviving a genre and a style that barely saw the light of day in it's time. We're a 5 piece highlighting the late 60s/early 70s swagger, naivety, and darkness of acid rock/pro metal that would lay the frame work for the metal pantheon.
