Mars Red Sky Stranded In Arcadia on LP + Download
Regarded as one of the greats of the European stoner rock scene, France based Mars Red Sky have gained international recognition thanks to a unique sound imprint based on thick infectious grooves and melodic aerial guitar riffs. This is truly a one of a kind experience, wrapped up by Julien Pras’ ethereal vocals, Matgaz Gazeau's powerful rhythms and Jimmy Kinast’s pachydermic bass lines.
Somewhere between doom metal and 70’s psyche pop, the Mars Red Sky's sound intrigues to begin with, after which it irremediably attracts the masses to celebrate this cosmic ritual of solar burning fuzz and reverberated atmospheres. Driven by the huge success of their eponymous debut record, which was recorded in Spain’s mystic Bardenas desert and released in 2011, the Bordelais were quickly invited to play on the largest European stages with the likes of Kyuss Lives!, Dinosaur Jr., and Sleep, at popular festivals around the world.
In 2012, they paired up with French doom metal monsters Year Of No Light to release a 3-track split record, which sold out in the blink of an eye. The release of their EP Be My Guide in the spring of 2013 prophetically opened the path for an extensive tour across Europe, then across the Atlantic Ocean for a few exciting gigs in Latin America, where they recorded their second full-length, Stranded in Arcadia, with Gabriel Zander.
Heavier than ever, Mars Red Sky will take you further into its very own world of fuzz and psychedelia, a journey to a wondrous imaginary place called Arcadia...
