French heavy psychedelic trio MARS RED SKY are set to release their long-awaited second album ‘Stranded In Arcadia‘ this Monday, April 28th, in Europe via Listenable Records. The 11-track record was recorded in Rio De Janeiro by Gabriel Zander at Superfuzz Studio during their South American tour last year.
And as the eve of the release nears, the web portal of doom, The Obelisk, is now streaming the track ‘The Light Beyond‘ at THIS LOCATION.
Within only three years, MARS RED SKY have established themselves as a major groundbreaker of the European psychedelic and heavy scene. Their first eponymous album raised the bar high with its blending of heavy psychedelia, melodic vocals and fuzz-drenched desert grooves: a real trip for the heart and soul. Now, French fuzzlords Julien Pras, Jimmy Kinast and Mathieu Gazeau are back with their second record ‘Stranded In Arcadia‘, literally smashing all what has been previously done by the band, in terms of creativity and the sensations it provides to the listener. Heavier and more hypnotic than ever, this 8-track stoner masterpiece will take you compellingly into a whirl of cosmic riffage and addictive grooves: it’ll take you into the unseen and wonderful world of Arcadia.
