Damian Murdoch Trio Electric Tentacles on LP + Download
The instrumental heavy rock/fusion outfit Damian Murdoch Trio is the brainchild of acclaimed Australian guitarist Damian Murdoch (The Ocean). An ex-pat living at large in Vienna, Murdoch - whose all-star resume runs the gamut of incendiary blues, acoustic jazz, soul pop, heavy rock and full-tilt metal - had a vision to form an elite instrumental project. One that made no compromises, pulled no punches and would dazzle music-lovers and musicians alike.
Based out of Berlin, the group - rounded out by Harry Stockl (bass) and Michael Posch (drums) – officially formed following a series of improvisational jam sessions, which led to the creation of their 2013 self-released debut album, Electric Tentacles. The acclaimed record consists of nine hook-laden grooves that masterfully combine elements of blues, fusion and funk atop slabs of anthemic rock and metal riffs.
All virtuoso players in their own right, the ingenious yet instinctive interplay between Mudoch, Posch and Stockly's instrumentation creates an intense roller coaster of peaks and troughs, detours and sojourns, sinuous riffery and spellbinding atmospherics. Prosthetic Records - who recently announced the group’s signing, with an eye toward releasing the group’s new album later this year - will reissue Electric Tentacles on gatefold vinyl.
