Spiral Guru: Presents as a musical synthesis of the evolution of the band….

Spiral Guru - The Fantastic Hollow Man

Expanding the frontiers of the stoner, the Brazilian band Spiral Guru shares the new lyric video for their recently released single The Fantastic Hollow Man. The track is a re-recording of one of the band’s best works, which is presented as a musical synthesis of the evolution of the Spiral Guru. Connecting its origin and its current moment, the music is a synthesis-statement of the band’s musical and political side.

The creation of the new single coincides with the creation of the band itself, in 2013, by guitarist Samuel Pedrosa and bassist, and then vocalist, José Ribeiro. After different formations, the current quartet was consolidated with the entry of Alexandre Garcia and Andrea Ruocco, releasing, in 2019, the album Void their work with the greatest repercussion.

We are releasing a new track, a re-recording of The Fantastic Hollow Man, originally released in 2014 (different drummer, singer and studio). This is something we always wanted to do and it was only possible due to the support of all of you. Be it through feedbacks, reviews, shares and even financially supporting the band. We are glad to send Bandcamp codes for anyone that wishes to download the single, as a token of appreciation for all that amazing support, which allowed us to keep writing and recording new songs», says band.

Spiral Guru was formed in 2013 by Samuel Pedrosa (guitars) and José Ribeiro Jr. (bass). The band from Brazil has since gone through different lineups until consolidate itself as a quartet with Andrea Ruocco (vocals) and Alexandre Garcia (drums). Initially with male vocals and a straightforward stoner/doom sonority inspired by 60’s and 70’s bands like Coven, Grand Funk Railroad, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Blue Öyster Cult and Black Sabbath, Spiral Guru has changed not only its lineup, but also their own musical personality. Expanding the borders of stoner, the band incorporated in their first full length album, VOID (2019), different influences that goes widely from psychedelic rock to post punk from late 70’s.

The use of effects, synths and unconventional instruments, especially in the synth intros, conjoins to a sound that some listeners associate to space rock or heavy psych. Without losing the cadence, groove and fuzzy distortions associated to stoner, Void is the transformation of all the cultural repertoire gained by the band in the past years into an unequivocally authorial piece. The album caught the attention of domestic and international specialized media, highlighting the Doom Charts appearances and a spot in the Classic Rock Magazine Best of The Year 2019 CD. In 2020 and 2021, the band recorded several songs that will be released in the coming years.

Line up:

Andrea Ruocco – Vocals

Samuel Pedrosa – Guitar

José Ribeiro – Bass and backing vocal

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5513 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
