San Francisco’s heavy rock freaks TURN ME ON DEAD MAN are now streaming their supersonic, comet-spangled fifth album « Heavymetal Mothership » via The Obelisk, officially coming out October 13th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
The bands twin guitar harmonization, melodic rhythmic switchbacks and trippy apocalypto-mystical lyricism keep California’s psychedelic rock tradition alive. In their own words: « mind melt music for the sick and twisted, heavydelic super rock for the ultimate freak outs« .
TMODM are an heavydelic space rock band from San Francisco. combining heavy metal and psychedelia to forge a music that is both transcending and unforgettable. The songwriting plunges listeners into the heavydelic landscapes of 60’s experimentalism and 70’s bombast, creating a sound that is enthralling, imaginative, hugely entertaining, and incredibly hard rocking!
The group have been creating their unique brand of lysergic-soaked rock since their inception in 2000, gigging extensively throughout the Bay Area and garnering praise from all over their home turf and the country, spurred on by heavy rotation at the influential WFMU station in New Jersey. Alternative Tentacles founder Jello Biafra was suitably impressed by the band’s spaced-out, glammed-up, turned-up brand of audio mayhem enough to re-release their first epic record, « God Bless the Electric Freak » on A.T.!
Live, TURN ME ON DEAD MAN is a spectacle of epic proportions; a visceral sonic boom that spans the spectrum from the meanest, most gorgeous anthems of rock to the exotic ragas of modern psych, creating an explosive and diverse stage performance as energetic as it is uncommon. Simply put, Turn Me On Dead Man plays Heavy Crush Bliss Rock breaking the sound barrier on their own private Lear Jet headed straight to HELL!
