Their best album so far; perhaps Easterfaust is as good. These guys always change a bit but after all these years you recognize their style. The three pieces fit well together and make a nice album structure.
Formed in 2010, The Cosmic Dead are a quartet from Glasgow, Scotland who share their music through good vibes and better vibrations. Known for their improv, chaos strewn, Buckfast smashed against the wall take on space music, they have roamed from Roadburn to Las Vegas, Dundee to Bangalore with each album offering a meditative window into a certain time and space.
'Psych Is Dead' is the sixth full length album from the band, the glowing embers of a a few days spent recording in a sweaty Sardinian kitchen overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Soon to be available on LP and CD via Riot Season Records, 'Psych Is Dead' is an aural exploration of their tumultuous universe.
"Like a careening, uncontainable torrent of Buckfast-powered kosmische chaos, whatever your feelings towards the Scottish quartet's synth-washed space-jams on record, their performance is something like having Ken Kesey and Spacemen 3 pour Irn-Bru directly into your third eye." - The Quietus
"The Cosmic Dead may hail from Glasgow but their music sounds as if it were created in another universe altogether" - Drowned in Sound
"A swirling, thudding vortex of sound" - Echoes and Dust

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
