A first sign for a comeback? Definitely a news that will make every riff lovers and fuzz fan’s heart beat faster: legendary stoner rockers DOZER have signed a deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records for the reissue of the their first three records in the beginning of 2020!
‘In The Tail Of A Comet’ (2000, Man’s Ruin Records), ‘Madre De Dios’ (2001) and ‘Call It Conspiracy'(2003, both out via Molten Universe) are absolute stoner rock masterpieces. These three records elevated the European scene to a higher level, influencing heavy rock generations for decades with a songwriting that made them stand out them from any other band in the early 00’s. Not only DOZER have had a huge influence on European stoner bands, but one can definitely say they own the title of Godfathers of European Stoner Rock.

All three reissues will come out this March on Heavy Psych Sounds and as special colored vinyl editions; a bonus for all fans: ‘In The Tail Of A Comet’ will be also released on single vinyl for the first time ever!
Guitarist Tommi Holappa comments: « Our first three albums were recorded a long long time ago when we were still young and dumb! But don’t you worry, we are still dumb, just old and dumb! Finally our first babies will be reissued on vinyl again after being sold out for years! Enjoy!“

Heavy Psych Sounds Records is reissuing the first three albums of the Swedish legendary band Dozer: In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy! It’s an honor for us having this incredible band in our growing HPS fuzz family! »

As with hundreds of other young Swedish bands, DOZER was the obvious answer to the boredom of a small town youth in a land where the sun seldom visits. After forming in 1995, DOZER emerged in 1998 with their debut 7″ which was awarded “Single of the week” in KERRANG! magazine. DOZER quickly progressed beyond their early influences and created a style of their own incorporating modern elements into their classic heavy rock sound. A sound that always has been intensely heavy but yet also strongly song and melody driven by the distinctive vocals of singer Fredrik Nordin. DOZER has carefully cultivated a following like none other and a reputation second to none due mostly assuredly to their constant touring and explosive live shows. The band scattered releases on labels like Meteor City, Man’s Ruin, & their own Molten Universe before finding a home at Small Stone. With albums like Madre De Dios and Through the Eyes of Heathens these simple Swede’s have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of stoner rock, often placed upon the same pedestal as the fathers of the movement – Kyuss and Monster Magnet. With the release of their 5th full length album Beyond Colossal in 2008, the sons of Sweden seemed poised to teach the Underground a lesson or two about what Rock and Roll is all about. After a hiatus the band returned to the scene with some live shows over the last years, for 2020 they are planning an Australian tour. Just recently they signed a deal with cult and fuzz rock label Heavy Psych Sounds, who will re-release the bands first three albums In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy in March 2020. One can only hope, this is just the beginning of a new DOZER era…
