San Diego heavy metal unit GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST stream epic new song off upcoming album « Chapter II » , out July 6th on Totem Cat Records
Sonic story tellers GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST are true merchants of Rock and Roll and Heavy Metal taking listeners on a journey into an ever expanding world of captivating characters and allegories…
« Chapter II », the long anticipated 2nd LP coming from GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST bring their journey to flat out gargantuan proportions. Barn burners like « Seeker of the Flame », « Anubis » and « Wicked Hands » set fire to the torch that illuminates the Epic title track « Of Earth »; a 15 minute saga full of « Creation, « Destruction », and the resolution of « Ancient Machine ». The penultimate track « The Madness » is a gritty ode to classic riff rock and the closing track « Heart of the Son », simply unites.
Riffage, solos, rhythms, and lyrics along with the production of Jeff Henson (Duel) and Tony Reed (Mos Generator) combine to bring a bigness and fullness of color that elevates this album into upper echelons. Adam Burke’s cover art is a mind blowing combination of bad ass and fun as the four members are represented in an almost superhero like fashion protecting planet Earth with their Rock and Roll as they ride over her. « Chapter II » is here and so is GREAT ELECTRIC QUEST, delivering the whole package with an album that should resonate for years to come.
