High Desert Queen: With rip-roaring video…..

High Desert Queen - Secrets Of The Black Moon

«Their music is a journey into the open roads from the badlands of Big Bend to Joshua Tree, with no speed limit or second chance». -Thom Young, featured writer in PBS Newshour, Huffington Post and author of Instapoet among others.

Texan hard rockers High Desert Queen release rip-roaring The Mountain vs The Quake video; debut album coming this October on Ripple Music!

About the video, the band says: «High Desert Queen The Mountain vs the Quake: Ryan Mountain and Frank Quake give presentations to the board in hope of being selected as the singer of the company karaoke band. With so much at stake, the meeting turns into an all-out brawl to the death in this Office Space meets Fight Club classic. Who would you put your money on?».

Relocating from Houston in 2020 to accommodate the talents of bassist Matt Metzger and drummer Phil Hook, High Desert Queen found themselves in the enviable position of having twelve songs ready to commit to tape. Undeterred by a series of COVID-related setbacks, they finally completed the recording with Jeff Henson (Duel) at Red Nova Ranch studios in Austin, TX, and are ready to bring it barreling forth to the people just two years since the band’s formation.

The relentless foursome was recently signed by Ripple Music collaborator and Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko to the Californian label. Initially set for a June 2021 release under the title Bury The Queen, their upcoming debut album Secrets Of The Black Moon will see an October 15th release on limited edition vinyl, classic vinyl, CD and digital. It was mixed and mastered by Swedish producer Karl Daniel Lidén (Lowrider, Crippled Black Phoenix, Greenleaf) at Studio Gröndahl in Stockholm.

Track-list:

1. Heads Will Roll

2. The Mountain vs The Quake

3. As We Roam

4. Did She

5. The Rise

6. Skycraper

7. The Wheel

8. Bury The Queen

Formed in Austin, Texas in 2019 to an eclectic backdrop of influences and styles, as avid adopters of alt-rock progenitors Kyuss and Alice In Chains, the band’s sole aim was to make the kind of music they could file away on their record shelves, alongside the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age, Elder, Tom Waits, and The Allman Brothers. Providing high octane shows that never deliver the same experience twice, High Desert Queen were well on their way to establishing themselves as one of the hardest working rock bands on the Austin music scene.

Line-up:

Ryan Garney – Vocals, Guitar

Rusty Miller – Lead Guitar

Matt Metzger – Bass Guitar

Phil Hook – Drums

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6048 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.
