Black Space Riders: Unleash an electrifying finale.

Black Space Riders - We Have Been Here Before

Av41 says, «I don’t like prog. But Black Space Riders produce incredible music you could call progressive. Amoretum Vol 1 & 2 are a pair of immersive soundscapes that will melt your face with guitar riffs and passionate vocals then leave you dreaming of a wide open sky. The variety throughout their back catalogue is stunning. This really is a band you need to hear».

Black Space Riders have released their new album We Have Been Here Before.

Progressive, heavy psychedelic outfit Black Space Riders have unveiled a teaser for the upcoming full-length We have been here before releasing on October 21st, 2022 via Cargo Records. An out of this world voyage awaits as Black Space Riders journey through an array of thrilling musical offerings.

Black Space Riders launched in 2009 founded by members Je and Crip in Münster, Germany. Their debut album materialized in 2010 and over a decade later, We Have been Here Before marks their seventh full-length. The collective strive to deliver a distinctive sound with no musical styles or influences off limits.

Crawling In swathes a dynamic soundscape of synthesizers, segueing into the heavy groove rhythms of Crawling (down with everything).Bringing A Stylistic Change, Almost (the) Lost sees low, soft intimate vocals with minimalist instrumentation along with reggae inspired melodies and instruments. Gradually building with added distorted guitars as the track progresses, Almost (the) Lost transforms into a full heavy arrangement.

«AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGH is a fury of anguish-fuelled punk and hard rock, while the following title track delves further into progressive realms. Concluding the album with the spectacular Worlds Collide Dans Ma Tete extending over ten minutes in length, Black Space Riders unleash an electrifying finale».

We have been here before is an odyssey of striking creativity and production. The new album is a fusion of immersive soundscapes, catchy hooks and driving rhythms all accompanied with a Sci-Fi undertone. Black Space Riders have crafted a record that showcases the breadth of their musical capabilities. Their sound is by no means caged inside one genre as it transcends boundaries seamlessly combining a multitude of styles, all while remaining cohesive to their core identity».

About Ulf Backstrøm (7417 Articles)
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.
