Mars Red Sky biography
A three-piece Bordeaux stoner project MARS RED SKY gave a first cry in the winter of 2007, by mere chance - Julien PRAS and Jimmy KINAST met at a tiny club in Bordeaux for the Berlin Vs Brooklyn show. With a fusion drummer Benoit BUSSER recruited, they started playing heavy / noisy psychedelia much influenced by 70s stoner rock like Black Sabbath. Encouraged by their first concerts in Bordeaux with a big cheer from the well-amazed audience, MARS RED SKY soon made a decision to record their material in the Bardenas Desert (Spain) with a big help for recording and mixing by Pierre Fillon. Their works have been crystallized into their eponymous debut album in 2011, finally.

Review by LearsFool

5 stars A crushingly masterful piece of melodic doom metal, done through the lens of prog. Doom metal isn't normally the preserve for complex time signatures due to its slow speed, but this not quite so heavy take on the genre manages to work proggy complexity into the style wonderfully. Mars Red Sky each play their respective instruments excellently, managing to make a lighter take on doom, and make it experimental and make it good. "Strong Reflection" grabs you, and the other tracks are each in their own ways a treat. "Way To Rome is probably the best track amongst this embarrassment of musical riches. It simply is a wonderful gateway into doom that is also particularly unique and well done. Doomers and prog metal fans will both find plenty to love on this spectacular record, in a rare moment of crossover to boot.

4 stars The group's fabulously illustrated vinyl single starts with logical math rock orientated angles, leading to solid stoner riff passage. The melodic vocals and verses remind of 1960's psychedelic rock sounds, which merge to the more modern heavier sounds. With careful arrangements these elements synthesizing as pleasant psych tones and downwards descending instrumental drives. The B-side's "Sábada" focuses to some really slow downer blues spheres, and this instrumental song is in my opinion more convincing than lighter the title track. The solo guitar has also really pleasant acid tones, and along with the ever-strengthening echo treatments this song redeems the promises scripted to the stoned colour pencil drawing on the sleeve. A recommendable neat vinyl for collections of psychedelic stoner rock records certainly.
Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
