"...Like the bastard mix of Sabbath and heavy blues hitters like Blue Cheer and Cream."
Terrorizer Magazine

"Striking titanic, fat-bottomed doom chords that would make the Devil cry a single tear of joy."
Kerrang!

"Take the caveman stomp of ‘Retronaut’, which opens the album. The satisfyingly head-nodding riff sounds exhumed from 1969 and the beat could have been snatched from the Sonics’ archive. It is a swirling trip back in time."
Echoes & Dust

"Retronauts is a suitably smoky and weighty piece of work that improves with every spin."
Ghost Cult Magazine

"They stomp on the terra like an antique copper golem and wield immense power with which they can choose to destroy or build. Simply stunning!"
The Doom Charts

Offering up a heady excursion into the dope-smoking amplifier-worship of Pentagram, Saint Vitus and Electric Wizard, Retronauts is for neither the faint of heart nor mind. Traversing cosmic ley-lines on an antiquarian journey through the lineage of English proto-metal, a lysergic love of Cream, The Beatles and fellow Midlanders Black Sabbath permeates Prophets of Saturn’s sound. A sound laced in equal measure with both the usual and unusual, from a band possessed to the point of lunacy with channeling bad acid trips, occultism and electrified doom through a fuzz box to get out of it the desired winding riffs and demented wails.

Like their debut – originally released on Cosmic Tomb and later rereleased by HeviSike Records on limited edition CD and cassette – Retronauts is a must-hear for fans of spaced-out, groove-laden metal. The kind committed to analogue tape in the most esoteric of studios and best heard live through vintage stacks.

Known for their commanding and mesmerizing stage shows the band has shared stages recently with the likes of Wounded Kings, Bong, Goatess and Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell and play a number of dates this summer in support of the album’s official release. (See live dates below.)
