4 stars EARTHLESS are trio from California who play a heavy brand of Psychedelia. We get two side long tracks where they simply jam in a repetitive manner. There's not a whole lot of variation, but then again I love this style of music where they simply jam, especially when it's this heavy. FLOWER TRAVELLIN' BAND from Japan are no doubt big influences on this band. Heck even the album cover reminds me of their "Satori" album that that Japanese band released back in 1971. Oh and the title of the first track is a bit of a giveaway (haha).

"Flower Travellin' Man" opens with drums that recall the start of ZEP's "Immigrant Song" and then the distorted guitar comes in swirling. Riffs 1 1/2 minutes in.Tighten your seat belts 'cause here we go ! Just a light show here from the guitarist as the bass and drums lay the ground work. Nice bass before 4 minutes.The guitar is just ripping it up 11 minutes in. A shred-fest 13 1/2 minutes in. It just blows me away that this onslaught goes on for 20 minutes.

"Lost In The Cold Sun" opens with noisy, distorted guitar as the bass and drums join in. It becomes SABBATH-like 4 1/2 minutes in and later at 12 1/2 & 15 minutes in. Another fantastic jam with a big finish.

I'd love to see these guys live, it would be a smoke-fest in more ways than one.
