Germany’s new prog lords announce plans
True talent can be found anywhere: black metal in China, NWOBHM worship in Peru, crushing death in Indonesia, yet brilliant psychedelic doom rock which easily can compete with today’s high international standards from Thuringia, a state in the eastern part of Germany, is still quite a surprising discovery though the region is renowned for its diverse music scene. Now, Century Media Records, proudly present you the young quintet, MOTOROWL, formed in 2014 when most of its band members were not even twenty years old! MOTOROWL quickly developed a heavy sound blessed with fabulous riffs, great vocal melodies, and a grinding Hammond organ on top. Think SPIRITUAL BEGGARS or Uriah Heep on a bad acid trip. Think 70’s inspired, damn heavy hard rock with a contemporary, gloomy twist.
Dan Swanö: “Amazing mixture of stoner and 70’s hard rock executed with finesse. I had an amazing time mixing their songs, that always seemed to take a turn towards the unexpected.”
Fabian Hildebrandt: “Congratulations to my buddies from Motorowl! It does say something, when a band goes from a rancid rehearsal room in Gera straight away to touring with Bombus, and even manages to convince a label as renowned as Century Media . I still remember vividly, how they asked me to record their album. Initially, I was rather critical, but after I saw them live I immediately knew that I HAD TO. Stunning… extremely young, no idea about nothing, yet insanely talented! Motorowl are a true rock band and I am curious to see, where the future journey of Daniel, Martin, Max, Tim and Vinz will take them.”
After having played a good share of gigs with Jex Thoth, Path Of Samsara, and a tour with Sweden’s BOMBUS, MOTOROWL offer live experience as well and even Germany’s Visions Mag highly recommended these newcomers promising it would not take long until they got signed.
‘Om Generator’ will be released worldwide through Century Media Records on August 26th, 2016.
