“As the group enters it's ninth year, Glitter Wizard are set to release their most ambitious album yet. Hollow Earth Tour is a concept album of sorts; chock-full of reptilian overlords, underwater fascists, and inner-earth explorers. This band of California rifflords pillage the best of vintage hard rock while keeping their laser eyes on the future, creating a unique brand of oddball psychedelia. Their onstage performance is a glammed-up force to be reckoned with and they've been taking their act on the road from the West Coast all the way to Europe.
Lipstick stains on the rim of a bong”
That's all the information you require to listen to the excellent new album from Glitter Wizard – Hollow Earth Tour. It's a blistering ride of classic hard rock riffs with at touch of Psychedelic Stoner Rock madness thrown in for good measure.
It's definitely their craziest release to date but also perhaps their finest album to date. The album has quite a schizophrenic feel which has appeared on other Glitter Wizard releases. Though Hollow Earth Tour is where the band make an almighty leap for greatness and pull it off with true conviction.
Standout tracks have to be: The Smokey God, The Hunter, Scales and Death Of Atlantis.
The album is superbly produced from start to finish as Glitter Wizard include a ton of different noises to impress you with. It may take you a few listens to fully understand it all as the band create a progressive mind-fuck of different ideas that all have a delicious wicked edge.
Now you can enjoy Hollow Earth Tour in all it's glory. As the cool folks at Heavy Psych Sounds and Purple Sage PR have allowed me to stream the album before it's official release this Friday.
So sit back and enjoy Hollow Earth Tour. It's time to take a trip and believe me when I say it's glorious!!!
