The avant-garde 'post-apocalyptic' rock unit Queen Elephantine is back with its sixth studio album. Gorgon's dissonant riffs will pull you down a river of unearthly atmospheres, guided by the incantations of sardonic fakirs, unravelling their final sermon before the cosmos combusts.
High recommended for fans of acts alike Swans and OM, this is a trip through hypnotic molasses grooves - drawn from psychedelia, doom, drone, noise rock as well as free jazz and sacred music from around the world. Formed in 2006 in Hong Kong and currently based in Philadelphia, USA, Queen Elephantine is a nebulous worship of heavy mood and time, who already left their big stamp in the current heavy and psych rock scene.
Queen Elephantine have released five albums to date as well as splits with Elder or Sons of Otis. Gorgon was produced and mixed by guitarist and vocalist Indrayudh Shome, and mastered by Billy Anderson.
