Dark Fog "The Flow Machine At The End Of The World" (2015)
At the end of November the new album has pleased fans of the famous neo-psychedelic band DARK FOG from Chicago. 39-minute "The Flow Machine At The End Of The World" team released their own: in digital format, and (especially for gourmet-fetishists) on tape vintage 7-inch film's reels in.
This is the ninth release in the discography DARK FOG, who gathered under the leadership of guitarist-singer Ray Donato in 2003 and has since released four full-length albums on CD, vinyl and micro-cassettes ("Cosmic Tone", 2005; "The Ultimate Cult of Psychedelic Psychosis ", 2006;" DFIII ... thousands ", 2009;" Drug Portal: Heavy Dilemma ", 2011;" The Seaside Sounds Of Dark Fog At Doctor Officer Quimby's House ", 2012), a pair of 7-inch vinilchikov (" Til the End of Time ", 2004 and split with the band The Great Society Mind Destroyers, 2010) and one EP-album on vinyl (" Exotica ", 2013).
In its present form DARK FOG - a duo of Ray Donato (vocals, guitar, bass and so on.) And Chad 'YT' Robinson (drums, vocals).

Any guitar riff, figuratively speaking, requires surgical isolation of pulsating flesh of the fleeting and painful puhnuschih textures.

Which hovers somewhere on the other side of the window and had almost disappeared in the chaos of the outside world-space ...
Literal comparisons music duo with Hawkwind, Amon Düül II, Spacemen 3, My Bloody Valentine, Flaming Lips, Acid Mothers Temple, Dead Meadow, Pharaoh Overlord, etc., Abused by foreign writers, was not taken seriously. DARK FOG successfully absorb all of the above and more, and from himself tricked out something different - in any frame does not fit. Just and still is - to relate to the music of another phenomenon of the "new musical aesthetics (psychedelic)." Inquiring students, researchers recommend!
