7" vinyl single only 500 pressed. NHS0003. Second single release on New Heavy Sounds - house bag with 'The Heavy People' packaging, clear 7" vinyl, Leeds meets London heavy scene collaboration. Debut albums to follow by both bands in Autumn 2011. Six months ago, a Leeds 60s garage punk band were experiencing seismic shifts in their tastes and mentality with a dark rumbling beneath the surface and their heavier influences began to flood their veins. They emerged, as a new band, translucent-skinned and bleary-eyed from their cocoon as BLACK MOTH. Taking a powerful chunk of influence from proto-punk acts such as Iggy and the Stooges, Motorhead and early Alice Cooper as well as a sliver of 90s grunge and stoner rock, Black Moth draw out the darker elements and combine them with the heaving riffs of heavy metal giants, Pentagram and Black Sabbath, with"hooks so sharp you could hang a corpse on them". They also look to more current acts such as the Melvins, Sleep and Electric Wizard for inspiration, though
singer, Harriet Hyde, still maintains a vocal style that evokes the haunting psychedelia of Grace Slick and psych-Satanist, Jinx Dawson from Coven: the woman responsible for the "sign of the horns" in rock'n'roll. 'Spit Out Your Teeth' is the follow up to their debut single 'The Articulate Dead/Blind Faith' released to rapturous reviews and plentiful airplay in January. 'It's Possible' is the first taster from London's XM-3a's forthcoming concept album 'A Darkling Plain'. It follows on from January's debut 12" single 'Bad Robot Man', their 9.19 minute doom riffing acid-psyche drenched epic, and is an edited version of the ten minute cataclysm that will be a key part of said album, and a crucial instalment of the album's twisted tale of a dystopian future following the techno-wars. XM-3a press - 5 Star Single of The Month in Artrocker Magazine Jan 2011 "9 minutes worth of gasoline coated riffs, bursts of noise, ridiculous keyboard solos, duelling lead guitars, call and response vocals, phaser effects and a massive theatrical climax- a chop smackingly guilty pleasure".
