The Greek psychedelic hard rock band Naxatras is ready to release its new album, “III” (February 16, 2018), and is now premiering a first new song off that album. It’s called “On the Silver Line” and it is a very interesting psychedelic trip, in the vein of Hawkwind. Below you can read the official press release and listen to the song:
They have been playing since 2012, developing their sound and finally recorded their first full-length album in a 100% analog way at Magnetic Fidelity (a studio in rural northern Greece) with Jesus Agnew, an engineer experienced in the field of analog and DIY recordings. Only analog equipment was used in the recording-mixing-mastering stages of the album. All the songs in the record were performed entirely live during just one day. In 2016 they released their second full length album “II” as well as an EP, once more fully analog and live.
The band does high-energy live performances combining elements of psychedelic/progressive rock, stoner, funk, jazz and eastern music with a trippy video wall to accomplish full stimulation of the senses.
In summer 2015 they went on their first tour playing 5 countries in the Balkans. In summer 2016 they toured Europe once more playing more than 10 different countries including Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary, Austria, Croatia and Netherlands. They also played at Void Festival in Germany and Lake on Fire festival in Austria.
