BLACK RAINBOWS ‘Radio 666’ Single Review.


Words El Jefe.

So Black Rainbows, a band straight outta Italy have a new LP entitled Cosmic Ritual Supertrip in the pipeline and have unleashed the first tune from it for our listening pleasure. The song, ‘Radio 666’, is some classic sounding Black Rainbows and is sure to keep the old fans (like me) happy, and should also rope in a few new ones at the same time.

The rasping, raunchy guitar intro has some cool mid ‘60s tones to it, and wouldn’t be outta place on something by The 13th Floor Elevators, which is a bit of a departure from the usual heavy, wall of fuzz wail I usually would expect from this band, but the song itself has some ballsy drive to it. Meshed with the hooky chorus, it easily grabs your ear and takes it for a few laps, beer in hand, of the main drag.

If this is just a premonition of what’s to come from Cosmic Ritual Supertrip, them I’ll be wrapping my choppers around the LP post haste upon it’s release!

Black Rainbows Cosmic Ritual Supertrip is out soon through Heavy Psych Sounds and is available for pre-order NOW HERE.
