Earth Flight biography
Founded in Nuremberg, Germany in 2004

EARTH FLIGHT is a heavy progressive rock band formed during 2004 in Nuremberg, Germany by bassist Martin STULLEIN, drummer Sebastian ENGELHARDT, guitarist Andreas BLENDINGER and vocalist Tobias BRUNNER. Deriving their name from a song by American doom metal act Pentagram, the group debuted with their self-titled EP in 2005 which displayed this foursome's unique blend of doom metal, 70s hard rock and psych. They went on to release a live album the following year as well as a first full-length studio album (also self-titled) in 2007.

After the first album, founding member STULLEIN left the band and EARTH FLIGHT recruited Benjamin MULLER on bass. In 2008, a second EP simply titled 'Demo 2008' came out and in 2009 founding drummer ENGELHARDT left to be replaced by Michale "dudu" TUTTOR. Finally in 2011, the follow-up album 'Blue Hour Confessions' was released and EARTH FLIGHT played over 60 shows in 8 European countries continuing to progress in their fresh sound.

Riverdragons & Elephant Dreams
Earth Flight Heavy Prog

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars EARTH FLIGHT are in operation since more than ten years in the meanwhile, though have slipped beneath my radar beforehand. Now their new third studio album 'Riverdragons & Elephant Dreams' attracted my attention really, seemingly evolves to a 2018 highlight, the more I'm listening. This is sophisticated prog, yeah! Well, considering they are a German band, it appears to be somewhat surprising as for the overall style. While delivering a heavy rock fundament plus proper psychedelic sentiment, this superficially sounds more like a typical nordic band is on the run here somehow, akin to Moonwagon or Causa Sui. Okay, categories are not more than ... categories, let the music speak for itself.

They have Tobias Brunner aboard. From charming to shouting, provided with a great singing voice - that's half the battle, isn't it? Now when considering a good and proper amount of vocal activity one can expect a very melodic affair too in general. And then, no doubts concerning the prog essence, as there are sophisticated arrangements given. Mirai marks an exceptional exemplar, tricky and enchanting. And I'd like to emphasize Bedlam especially. The song begins a bit innocent, but soon evolves into a big highlight. This due to an impressive blend of atmospheric space parts but also heavy expressive head banging moments. Wow! Take your time, an album which definitely needs some rounds to fully unfold.

Blue Hour Confessions

4 stars The moon will light your way

Earth Flight is a relatively unknown German psychedelic doom metal band. Formed in 2004, the band released a number of releases as well as a number of lineup changes before the release of their second full length studio album, Blue Hour Confessions. The band owns a very unique style; the band's music will vary into extremes and equilibrium with three main influences: 70s hard rock, doom metal, and psychedelic rock a la Pink Floyd. Although those influences may seem odd together, the band does a spectacular job at the amalgamation of these almost opposing styles. From swaths of doomy riffing to oceans of melodic and spacey guitar chords, the music on this diverse disk rarely stagnates and it keeps the listener tuned in to the emotive and inviting music quite keenly.

This album is a wonderful example of a side of progressive rock that isn't seen very often. This album is not fed from the fires of virtuosity or technical mastery. This album is very much dependent on emotion and feeling to express the power and potency of the music. The compositions are not complex orchestral monstrosities or intricately technical, but rather careful emotive pieces of music meant to express these four musicians passion for the sound that they create. Each member has an intimate niche in the music, whether adding rhythm, melody, harmony, or a solid foundation for which the music is based from. Whether subtle harmony or gentle melody, the whole atmosphere of the music is wonderfully expressive of the composer's influences and the diversity adds a spectacular color and feeling to the music.

The diversity of the music, and the dynamics that that diversity yields, is another one of the wonderful things about this album. Although the album is heavily based in their doom metal background (even the band's name is taken from a Pentagram, a doom metal band, song), the album has much farther reaching elements than depression-soaked riffs and dour lyrical themes. The band has a spectacular base of influence, ranging from Pink Floyd- esque chord progressions to Zeppelin-esque riffing to even more recent rock influences. The album never really bottoms out with a boring section of riffs or rhythms, it constantly changes, whether the band is in a psychedelic swing, such as much of the intro of "Restless," or an upbeat rock swing, such as much of "Other Side of the Rings," the band has a number of tricks up their sleeves to make their music interesting and inviting.

In conclusion, Blue Hour Confessions shows itself as a spectacular display of Earth Flight's potential to make emotive, diverse music and synthesize numerous influences into a dynamic, inviting, and cohesive piece of music. The band's wonderful mastery of their part in the music truly makes this an exemplary piece of music. Although the songs are not complex, overly technical, or even spectacularly progressive, the music still is a fantastic show of the desire to create music that not only they like, but pushes the boundaries of their genre and makes an inviting and enticing album for listeners. 4 stars.
