Famed Italian Heavy Psychedelic Rockers Deadpeach fourth album The Cosmic Haze And The Human Race is a mighty fine collection of trippy psychedelic passages with the elevated status of Stoner Rock allowing the album to have a more central FUZZIER sound compared to their previous albums. The album has moments of Spaced Out Rock which brings a heavier Desert Rock perspective and seedy 70’s Classic Hard Rock atmosphere. 

Deadpeach take influence from a wide range of bands such as Dead Meadow, Earthless and Colour Haze to name but a few. However, Deadpeach bring their own “hip” creative vision to the Heavy Psych Field with moments of extended Hard Rock jams with a free-flowing attitude which can be quite DOOM based in places with a JAZZY outlook. The opening tracks of Madras, Motor Peach and Man On The Hill are exceptionally played and fully realised with Deadpeach bringing their wealth and knowledge of being together for over 31 years now. The music is fast-paced, highly energetic and full of Garage Rock energy. The vocals from Giovanni are superb as ever who has a rebellious Punk Rock style on this album.

The music is not overly produced and has the right amount of Stoner Rock presence which is always striving for heavier musical pastures. The record is perhaps dominated by Giovanni and Daniele’s intense guitar work but as always they have wonderful support by Federico on Drums and MrSteveman on Bass who provide a funk driven backline for the guitars to work upon. 

Deadpeach conjures up wilder instrumental passages on the later stages of the album on tracks such as Ouroboros, Monday and Set The Control To Mother Earth. Soulful guitars and classic 1960’s based Psychedelic grooves become another destructive style of music for Deadpeach to delight fans of Heavy Psych Stoner Rock with from beginning to end.

The Cosmic Haze And The Human Race has been worth the nine year wait since their last album and they’ve delivered another winner here which could be considered as their finest, trippiest and weirdest record to date. 

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
