Hydromedusa heaps cult tape release

Posted by Lachlan

Hydromedusa cassette tapeHydromedusa are a killer new doom and stoner rock band from South Australia.  They have a fancy new cassette tape out.

You should:

Hydromedusa exploded onto Australia’s stoner/doom scene in 2011 with their stunning self-titled debut album. With the CD-version of their album already sold out, Art As Catharsis is very pleased to print a limited run of 100 cassette tapes. The tapes are professionally dubbed, with DIY digitally printed artwork and inserts.

Hydromedusa's brand of blues-tinged sludge metal is marked by a psychedelic streak, dark downtempo detours into passages of heavy doom and bursts of high-energy rocking stoner tunes.

Fans of Witchcraft, Church of Misery, Space Bong, Looking Glass and Graveyard - check it out!
