Nebula Atomic Ritual

Stoner rock? Bonghit metal? Old school hard rock? Call it what ya want, but it is clear from the first 3 seconds of Nebula’s Atomic Ritual that these guys have been listening to a lot of Hawkwind! Droning, heavy, fuzzy and flat-out rockin’ as fuck, Nebula’s latest slab is more conceptual than their previous effort, but no less pulverizing. Produced by Master of Reality (and Queens of the Stone Age/Kyuss mentor) Chris Goss, Atomic Ritual is the bands most layered, bold work to date and finds them veering closer to the headfuck ethos of early Monster Magnet than the indie classic rock they ventured into on their Sub Pop effort. The title track and “Out Of Your Head” are just pure space rock, while “Carpe Diem,” “So It Goes” and “More” balance out the cosmic slop with some hooks and melody. None of this is gonna get the on the radio, but one gets the feeling they could care less. So be it. All in all, a pleasing way to melt your brain.
