3 stars DARK SUN are a Psychedelic band from Finland who are greatly influenced by HAWKWIND. So no surprise as to their instrumental sound, but the vocals weren't what I expected. They really reminded me of some of the singers from eighties pop bands and a lot of the time it's like he's yelling the lyrics.

"Tiny The Man" has a spacey into (surprise !) for almost 2 minutes when guitar, drums and vocals come in changing the melody completely. Lots of spacey synths and the guitar sounds good. "Feed Your Mind" sounds like he's yelling the vocals. Good song though. His singing here reminds me of the singer for CHALK CIRCLE. "Black Spires" opens with a guitar melody as drums and vocals come in. The guitar is great as are the bass lines. "Our Man Inside" has such a full sound. The guitar solos late in the song are terrific.

"Astral Magic" has a catchy guitar melody that builds. HAWKWIND lives through this song. "Phantastica" opens with water flowing and vocals that echo. This is a cool but short song. "Abduction Files" opens with lots of spacey synths and slow playing guitar that lasts for almost 3 minutes then it speeds up. Some spoken words later as well as some great guitar. "The Next Step" opens with synths firing off, as the sound of a countdown for a launch is heard. Later in the song is a synth / guitar melody that reminds me a lot of PINK FLOYD.

So overall I like it, just not too fond of the vocals. It's worth checking out if your a Space- Rock fan.
