Black Mountain - In The Future
In The Future has a certain charm about it that keeps pulling me back in to listen. Maybe it's the huge, beefy riffs reminiscent of anything from old blues to stoner rock, maybe its the the psychedelic side that only a handful of contemporary bands could claim to have incorporated into their music. But whatever it is. I am a fan of it.
Tracks like the eight minute 'Tyrants' and 'Wucans' showcase a Prog Rock sound with epic sections and synth sounds i'm not sure I have heard in the last 20 years. This album feels like a homage to almost all of the greats from the 60's and 70's, Neil Young, Sabbath, Floyd, etc. In The Future packs a punch and is well worth a listen for anyone who fancies a bit of nostalgia.
