Mother Engine Sign With Heavy Psych Sounds



European riff powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds added one more gem to their brilliant roster today, with the signing of German stoner/psych rock craftsmen MOTHER ENGINE for their third album to be released this fall. Stay tuned for more tunes!

MOTHER ENGINE plays instrumental rock music influenced by stoner and post-rock as well as the trippy psychedelic rock of the 60s and 70s, and indigenous German krautrock. It's no real surprise that the journey of that spaceship actually began on the stage of a big German stoner rock festival in the year 2013. What we talk about is a spirit of DIY, uncompromising endurance, and the strong will to play every single stage. After two records ("Muttermaschine" in 2013 and '"Absturz" in 2015) and appearances at some of the most important stoner festivals like Stoned from the Underground, Freak Valley Festival, Sonic Blast Moledo, Into the Void or Rotormania, it seems like they got their landing permission on the European stages for heavy psychedelic music.

In the fall of 2017, MOTHER ENGINE will release their third studio album "Hangar" and embark on a 6-week long tour through Europe to present their new material.

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
