Here Lies Man
Ritual Divination

That's some impressive sleeve art - they are matches you know. Here Lies Man are an LA-based collective who have been described as "Black Sabbath meets Afrobeat". The hard-touring quartet have just delivered their fourth album 'Ritual Divination', a record which seems to be one of those "soundtrack to an imagined movie"-type affairs that takes the listener on a psychedelic journey and whatnot. Amazingly, Here Lies Man's keyboard player is called Doug Organ.

Here Lies Man
No Ground To Walk Upon

Third album from what if Black Sabbath but afrobeat band Here Lies Man. Of they've got the riffs alright, riffs aplenty. It's the rhythms that are so strikingly different. You probably won't hear Bill Ward bashing out the beats on No Ground To Walk Upon. In sum they're a party band who've managed to sneak in a bit of the the ol' \m/. Very tasty. 

Here Lies Man
You Will Know Nothing

Antibalas offshoot Here Lies Man follow up 2017’s well-received debut LP. You Will Know Nothing sees the group going just as deep on their Black Sabbath-meets-Fela Kuti thing. On a lot of the songs - lead single ‘Fighting’ for example - traditional rock instrumental roles are reversed. While the thick riffs keep steady away, a mixture of kit drums and tuned percussion are free to invent as they please. It’s a stirring psychedelic mix.

Here Lies Man

Here Lies Man is an interesting concept for a band. Basically, they take the magically groovy genre of Afrobeat and then fuzz it up to psychedelic heavy rock levels. The results are pretty damn sweet: simultaneously heavy and light on its feet. Do you thrash about or simply funk out? Try both. The self-titled debut of the project is released by RidingEasy.
