Heavy Psych Sounds Records & Booking News
The German trio Mother Engine plays instrumental rock music influenced by Stoner and Postrock as well as the trippy Psychedelic Rock of the 60s and 70s and the indigenous German Krautrock. It's no real surprise that that the journey of that spaceship actually began at the tent stage of a big German Stoner Rock festival in the year 2013. What we talk about is a spirit of DIY, uncompromising endurance and the strong will to play every single stage. After two records ('Muttermaschine' 2013, 'Absturz' 2015) and appreances at many of the most important European scene festivals like Stoned from the Underground, Freak Valley Festival, Sonic Blast Moledo, Into the Void or Rotormania, it seems like they got their landing permission at the European stages for heavy psychedelic music. In fall 2017 they will release their third studio album 'Hangar' and doing a 6-week-tour through whole Europe presenting the new material.
People who heard the new songs live talk about a kind of stoner prog and maybe this impression hits right on the spot.
MODERN ENGINE are:
Chris Trautenbach (guitar)
Cornelius Grünert (drums)
Christian Dressel (bass)

A hammered 4-stroke beat like a twin cylinder engine running on idle, a roaring guitar riff revving up the rpms of the iron-built motorcycle-inspired band, then the fresh and insisting breeze of a Farfisa organ whispering 'let's ride' and a heavy bass greasing up the reliable crank and rods of that authentic rock'n'roll machine, and there goes, ladies and gents, the mighty LORDS OF ALTAMONT combo! Riding hard on backyard-built, loud pipes and rigid frame undestructible raw choppers, the band left their garage enlivened by the year of 1969, right at the crossroads of the Summer of Love and the birth of punk rock. Fueled up by the MC5, the Stooges and the Chambers Brothers to name a few, the pack follows Jake 'The Preacher' Cavaliere (vocals, organ) on his uncompromising rock'n'roll journey ; Dani Sindaco (gtr), Rob Zimmermann (bass) and Steven Van Der Werff (drums) along with their frontman are now spreading out The Wild Sounds of the Lords of Altamont, their latest record, around the planet!
Through fads and fashions, either on wax or on stage, the Lords can take you back to this era of freedom and rebellion with their hi-octane tunes. The gang has been already rocking the world for 17 years with spectacular performances, firmly run-in by 5 solid stainless records and they're now fine-tuned with this new release of 11 powerful late-sixties tracks which manage to sound fiendishly contemporary!
THE LORDS OF ALTAMONT are
