RobustFellow Prods To Release SHIVA THE DESTRUCTOR New Album - FIND THE OTHERS

Progressive heavy psych group Shiva the Destructor plays sprawling, spiraling rock music that is superbly crafted for maximum atmospheric flow. Hailing from Kyiv, Ukraine, the formidable four-piece is a band of true compositional ambition. Shiva the Destructor will release the new full-length LP, 'Find the Others', on March 26 via Robustfellow Productions.

Formed in 2012, Shiva the Destructor and its members are inspired by layers of rock culture from the past decades. Incorporating touch points from genre classics to deliver its own personal take on the quintessence of psychedelic rock via eclectic composition, the band's sound includes extended instrumental pieces, incredible vocal harmonies and experiments with the electric organ, as well as brass and oriental instruments. What really sets Shiva the Destructor apart is its unique sonic armament which features guitars with distinctly different tunings (one detuned and one uptuned), which creates both gorgeous sound bath and elegantly piled waves of sound.

The first taste of what Shiva the Destructor's 'Find the Others' holds in store is the LP's lead single, "Nirvana Beach", which is available for streaming at this location.

Work on the new LP, 'Find the Others', lasted for more than three years. Compositionally, 'Find the Others' is a remarkably fluid album—movement to movement and song to song, the LP flows almost as one continuous piece. Featuring five multi-suite, mini-epics -- many of them hovering around the 10-minute mark -- Shiva the Destructor has created a 45-minute space odyssey that’s meant to be listened to as a unified whole. Conceptually, the album follows the adventures of the titular title character, "Shiva", as he traverses the planet on a journey through the history of progressive psych music.

Shiva the Destructor - Nirvana Beach (Single)

"Each song on the album tells a separate story of our title character Shiva, who according to our interpretation is far from being omnipotent but lives an almost mortal life," says band's singer/guitarist Andrii Pryimak.

Over the course of the album's songs, Shiva travels around and through worlds, space and time. Finally, he arrives on Earth in the 1960's and proceeds to wear worn-out jeans and rock out at Woodstock. He then chills on the beach to the sounds of surf rock, falls in love, roams the untouched forests, lapses into self-reflexive battles and comes to terms with himself at the outskirts of the universe. Shiva has fun, suffers, seeks and changes — like we all do. On top of all that, the album contains several references and homages to legendary musicians and performers; lyrical and audio Easter Eggs just waiting to be discovered by the listener.

Track listing:

1.) Benares
2.) Hydronaut
3.) Summer of Love
4.) Ishtar
5.) Nirvana Beach
