* "White Lightnin" is a monstrous pound of sonic heaviness, psychedelic approaches and emotional riffage – ingredients that, if mixed together with love for the music can bring stunning results. Like here.
* OBELYSKKH fear no boundaries and no flavour of the heavy: "White Lightnin" draws from pure sludge filth through psychedelic soundscapes into postrock and back. Sure, this album is heavy and massive but it also breathes some kinda repetitive mantra-like ambition, which clears the air here and there and thus declines total negativity.
* White Lightnin" was recorded, mixed and mastered in winter 2010/2011 by the late great BILLY ANDERSON (Sleep, Neurosis, Mr. Bungle, Eyehategod, High On Fire, Melvins – to name a few) providing the record a raw live sound that gives you a hint to what an immense experience it is to witness OBELYSKKH live – clearly something you shouldn’t miss.
* Founded in 2008 as a project to work on a few ideas of guitarist Torsten (formerly of THE WALRUZ and VS. THE STILLBORN-MINDED fame) with his friend Adi it was never planned to become a full operating band.
Soon the two-piece got joined by Steffen of seminal German Stoner Rock stalwarts DESERT SUN, who played bass but switched to the drumkit after they couldn’t find a dedicated drummer. The vacant bass position was taken by the multiinstrumentalist David, who literally was recruited in a disco.
* OBELYSKKH have won over more and more fans and most importantly, us here at Exile On Mainstream as well. Their set on the 2010 SOUTH OF MAINSTREAM Festival still rings in our ears and it was that wonderful evening when we approached the band with the interest to release the next album. Now, almost two years later you are holding it in your hands.
