Lord Elephant Premiere New Song Raktabija From Upcoming Debut Release Cosmic Awakening via Heavy Psych Sounds


Lord Elephant was raised by Edoardo and Leandro in 2016 after the split of their previous “napalm blues” band Random’N’Roll and the entry of Tommaso Urzino behind the drum kit. With diversified and complementary experiences the trio melt its passion for blues stoner fuzzy and improvised music into a personal journey of acid psychedelia graced with heaviness and tasty riffs as well. After almost five years in the work the DEBUT ALBUM seals the final result of the long road made by Lord Elephant in their musical research finding in Heavy Psych Sound Records the best possible partner to expand their sound as far as they can! 


“Cosmic Awakening” is the first offering ever released by Lord Elephant in its lifetime. Rather than concentrate ourselves on other outputs, we wanted to celebrate the long road made together as musician and human beings, that made as background in the progressive construction of this album, with a proper debut album, long in its creation as the band itself. Through the episodes of this journey, the trio experiences different moods and sounds on the path, sealing through the dreamy waves of space and acid rock towards the perilous reef of heavy blues, stoner and sludge metal, finding strength and inspiration in the solid cohesion that bound the three of us. Steady rooted in the metal, rock and blues tradition, “Cosmic Awakening” tries to find a personal manner to melt heavy music and psychedelia, shadows and lights, with a focused starting point, but going to nowhere defined…
