Spaced Out: Eponymus II

Thankfully, Spaced Out is back! They are crunchier, meaner, more in-your-face and full of rage. Their energy levels are peaked. I heard bits of Lost Tribe and even the Zeuhl, Magmoid, weird-rockisms of Japan’s Happy Family all on the first track in under three minutes. I am so digging this groove.

As on their first release the bass is way cool fusion. All axes are sharp and it’s up to three axes on this CD! Ooh baby. This is some frenetic fusion. There is a new denseness in each track, a heavier dirge yet the riffage is rampant fusion and near speed metal thrash in a few places. After the first three songs things ease up a bit but soon surge forward in full adrenalin fusion rock.

Fusion and instrumental rock fans, grab this one! If you need a reference point, imagine Stu Hamm’s Kings of Sleep or The Urge but with more interesting bass lines and much hipper guitar soloing. The unison lines are frequent and fly around like hornets in a cyclotronic rage. You dig jams and abandon? This one’s for you. And there’s even a sax soloing on the outro track. Amazing follow-up after their debut, whoa baby!
