California psychedelic heavy rock champions Sacri Monti return with a vengeance on their sophomore LP Waiting Room for the Magic Hour — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
“We are excited to release this new album! Waiting Room for the Magic Hour has added a few new elements to our sound, but it still a lot of the same energy,” Sacri Monti guitarist Brenden Dellar says.
He’s got that right. Recorded at San Diego’s Audio Design (Earthless) with producer Jordan Andreen (Joy, Arctic), Waiting Room for the Magic Hour — due Friday, July 5 on venerated veteran indie label Tee Pee Records — sees Sacri Monti firing on all cylinders, somersaulting between the spontaneous and the musically calculated.
Blues rock, prog rock, proto metal, fusion; it’s all masterfully represented, as brash as it is beautiful. Heaps of fuzzed vocals, waves of keyboards, boogie rhythms, and sick, spiraling leads merge with focus, energy and drive to send Sacri Monti soaring to a next level, riff-filled land.
Proggy space rock jams erupt as melodies segue in and out, while vocals drift over the top, seemingly lost in the instrumental sea. Sacri Monti come fully charged and ready to party, adding a new twist on heavy psych while delivering the soundtrack to an endless summer with Waiting Room for the Magic Hour.
And soon, they’ll deliver it in person. “We can’t wait to play all the new songs live during the upcoming tours!,” says Deller. “See you in Europe (July 15-August 13) and stand by for more dates elsewhere coming soon.”
