Karisma Records has today released details of the debut full-length album from Psychedelic Rockers SHAMAN ELEPHANT. Titled “Crystals” and recorded at the Solslottet and Duper Studio with producer Iver Sandøy, the six-track album is due for release on the 9th December.
With a lineup that comprises Eirik Sejersted Vognstølen on vocals and guitar, Jard Hole (LINT) on drums, Ole-Andreas Sæbø Jensen on bass, and Jonas Særsten (ex-TIEBREAKER) on keyboards, SHAMAN ELEPHANT is a band that exudes energy, both in the studio and on stage. With its heavy riffs, flowing melodies and improvisation, the band’s music fits easily into the Psychedelic Rock genre, but also includes elements of Jazz and Prog Rock.
SHAMAN ELEPHANT ‘s only release to date is “More”, a three-track EP which was released digitally in 2015, so what can the band’s fans expect from the first full-length album? According to the band’s intriguing description, “Crystals” is “A psychedelic flying carpet ride taking you across a diverse musical landscape. Let the Shaman Spell fly you through waterfalls of melting melodies and fields of mastodontic riffs – open your third eye and prepare for the crystallized illusions”
Artwork for “Crystals” is by Kåre Thomsen. Tracklisting is as follows:
2. Shaman in the Woods
5. The Jazz
6. Stoned Conceptions
