The Spacelords biography
The SPACELORDS started in April 2008, when Marcus SCHNITZLER (drums, djembe, percussion, special effects) joined Matthias WETTSTEIN (guitars) and Klaus WERZ (bass) for a first session. Matthias and Klaus already had a few song-ideas and after a couple of weeks almost half of the first CD was arranged. As the ideas came so quick and the feeling was there from the first moment, it was clear: Even each of them had his own personal style and background, they had found a common sense in music. Marcus, who's traveling to west Africa since 1991, to study traditional rhythms, but is also into psychedelic music for over 25 years, Matthias, influenced by his trips to India since the seventies and playing his guitar for more than 3 decades, and Klaus, who first started 1978 in Russia as a drummer, but then changed soon to his favourite instrument - the guitar. After more than 20 years playing the guitar, he began on the bass guitar in 2006. His precise and groovy bass playing makes The SPACELORDS' style possible. The 4th Spacelord Reinhold (flute) came into the band in May 2008. He highlighted the music on the first CD with his flute and stayed with the band until end of 2009. Their eponymous debut album was distributed via an Italian independent label BTF in 2010.

Now The SPACELORDS continue as a trio and working on their new CD, looking for new musical surprises.

— First review of this album —
4 stars A chance encounter with The SPACELORDS, a German Space Rock outfit.

I've found their album occasionally just the moment I caught a glimpse of BTF (an Italian independent label) website. Felt some mysterious attraction for psychedelically colourful image and their cataleptic appearance in their album sleeve, and been more and more immersed deeply into their MySpace samples ...

Anyway, their sounds can be called as a simple and "refined" Space Rock I suggest. A Space Rock pioneer Hawkwind have played more "earthly-smelled" sounds indeed, but as to these Lords, smarter and more delightful tunes with up-beat and danceable tempo can come to our ears directly (listen to the sixth track "Cruising" with bird-twittering, charming drum sounds, and light-guitar-touches). We can feel so especially in the latter part of "Wahwah" (very impressive and is the wah-wah guitar solo), or the following song "Manamba" (Reinhold's energetic flute is very spacey and spicy). Forgive me but as honestly I say, particularly Marcus' fine drumming and Reinfold's flute are my favourites. Well Matthias' guitar is rumbling this ground like shock waves in "Apeman". In "Slowdown" are a slow but hard guitar solo and drumming that can beaten us completely. On the contrary, Oriental percussive sounds and bubbling howling guitar noises give a definitive atmosphere in "Golfstrom". "Janakpur" the last and longest one, is very very impressing with tragic guitar and flute solos, eccentric drumming, and deep bass sounds ... exactly suitable for the show ending.

Cataleptic appearance and cataleptic (and seriously strict) sounds ... cannot disappoint you really.
