Earth Drive Premiere New Album HELIX NEBULA

Earth Drive is characterized by a dense, melodic, visceral, cathartic and heavy sound. The Portuguese band from Montijo formed in 2007 and went through several prestigious venues and festivals from the underground scene, such as the Festival Reverence Valada, Under the Doom IV Edition, Sprint to Rock festival, VOA Heavy Rock Festival, Woodrock festival, Stonefest, Sabotage Club, Hard Club, Woodstock 69, Cave Avenida, Barracuda, Marginália, Cine Incrível Almadense, DRAC and a lot more clubs.

The band also shared stages with well known national and international bands from the underground scene such as Sasquatch, Steak, Crippled black Phoenix, Glowsun, Isaak, Radar man from the Moon, Planet of Zeus, Spectral Haze, Ecstatic Vision, My Master the Sun, Sinistro, Process of Guilt, The Black Wizards, The Quartet of Whoa, Basalto, Vircator, Riding Panico, Son of Cain, Heavy Cross of Flowers, Sun Mammuth, Wells Valley, Earth Electric, Desert Smoke, many others great bands.

Earth Drive released "Planet Mantra" in 2015 by the label raging planet and their first album “Stellar Drone” came out in October 20th of 2017 by the same label with recognized merits from the national and international underground press.

Helix Nebula will be released once again by the Portuguese label Raging Planet in 2020.

Helix Nebula is the second LP, where in addition to their traditional cosmic and psychedelic influences they explore in a more refined way the potential of their raw and powerfull sounds with warm, saturated and ambiental visceral tones.

Earth Drive identity, beside their power and loudness always have a strong atmospheric component, and in this record you still feel intense vibrations of immersive and meditative textures. The spatial effects, heavy tones and meditative / ritualistic atmospheres creates one hazy and futuristic aesthetic making this record a remarkable experience to let ourselves flow and travel within ourselves.

You can hear the wonderfully and heavy Psychedelic new album from this great band. 

You can buy the album here from Raging Planet now.
