Explorative Glaswegian space-heads Dead Otter are here to take you to worlds unknown via their first full length LP 'Bridge of Weird' following up on their heavy riffing debut 'Pathfinder EP'.
The band have been operating since the heady days of 1994 and take inspiration from Black Sabbath, Hillage, Groundhogs and Hawkwind. Their music is led by a twin guitar attack from John Riddell and Omar Aborida (The Cosmic Dead) and grounded by the electric rumblings of a rhythm section featuring Gavin Riddell on Bass and Scott Falconer (ex-Los Destructos) on drums.
Their sound warps blissfully from drifting improvisation to full on space noise oblivion.

A horrifically bleak album that I finally got around to listening to. Mesmerisingly dark and sludgy, and a distant cut above the usual stoner tripe that floods bandcamp. Truely a monumental album with some of the most deliciously tortured guitar licks I've ever heard. A dark, brooding psychedelic masterpiece. impressivelad
