CZAR OF BULLETS
Once a stoner band, nowadays Phased play a sort of heavy and leaden, but still groovy psychedelic doom – motor doom, as their former label boss fittingly baptized it. Six years into their last studio recording, the Swiss trio now releases «Aeon». Seven monoliths of down-tuned guitars, slow beats and a subtly threatening vocal treatment, that were recorded by Chris Sigdell (voice, guitar), Marko Lehtinen (drums) and Michael Greilinger (filling in on bass) at Helium Records in Basel. The album was mixed by Richard Whittaker in London and mastered by Greg Chandler in Birmingham. «Aeon» will be available as CD, LP and download by end of November 2015.
Today’s Phased came to as a trio in 2001, morphing out of two earlier formations. The members have their roots in Sweden, Finland and Austria.
Phased have released three albums before “Aeon”: «Music For Gentlemen» (2003) and the Elektrohasch classics «Medications» (2006) and «A Sort Of Spasmic Phlegm...» (2009). In 2013 Space Rock Productions released a double vinyl compilation. The band has played several European festivals of high renown, such as Stoned From The Underground, Up In Smoke or Doom Shall Rise and shared stages with bands like Mastodon, High On Fire, Orange Goblin and Spirit Caravan.
