Mars Red Sky return with MYRAMYD. A vinyl only release that sees the band create an epic 17 minute instrumental track. The song has the familiar sounds that Mars Red Sky are known and loved for. Though this time the band have added elements of cinematic rock and delivered the song within an orchestral/operatic style of music. This is something we haven't heard from Mars Red Sky before.

This is a band testing the boundaries of their own music and creating something different. It's beautifully heavy with the spaced out riffs and orchestral style sounds being played around you. If this is the new style of music that Mars Red Sky will be progressing with their next album then I want to hear how vocals will interact with music on Myramyd.

The song has moments of droned out noises in the middle of the song and it slows the mood right down allowing Mars Red Sky to experiment with their music yet again. Though the heavy riffs return with a vengeance as the song becomes more doomier and even trance based psychedelic riffs leave you wanting more.

Mars Red Sky have delivered the goods yet again. It's a shame this is only being released on Vinyl. As most people may not get the chance to listen to this EP. I'm grateful of getting the chance to listen and review this beautifully played and progressive spaced out rock opera.

Mars Red Sky prove yet again why they're one of the finest Psychedelic Doom/Stoner Rock bands currently out there today.
