Blown Out is a heavy assemblage of Newcastle doomsters, taken from bands such as Bong, Drunk In Hell and 11Paranoias. This LP contains the truth about what they did at Supernormal festival in 2015: they blasted out some blackened jams. Live Transmissions iii is released by Evil Hoodoo in a limited edition of 350 vinyl copies.
6/10 Robin Staff review, 22 March 2016
Me and Blown Out go way the fuck back, through the bowels of time into the heart of love. We’re kinda like best friends at the end of our lives -- with nothing left to say to each other, we merely sip beer and exchange one word per hour. Described semi-incorrectly on our own website as a doom record, ‘Live Transmissions III” sees the band continue to pour out psychedelic riffs that veer more towards the guttural end of the spectrum, while navigating the endless swirl of space with rhythms as consistent as rocket science.
Blown Out’s music is different from that which you might typically assign to the “space rock” tag, insofar as it’s constantly full of things, ducking in and out of disgruntled meteor shower traffic. The first track predicates itself on a distantly recorded rhythm section -- a bass groove, plus some unstoppable drum fills to nowhere -- but then sees guitarist Mike Vest move every possible degree of sideways. His solos make the blank dot sound busy, and the distorted production takes us far away from tranquility.
Flip it over and the same chilled response to a threatening multiverse continues. “Transgalactic World Eater” sounds like a spaceship contentedly entering the mouth of a gigantic space beast, the tempo half-baked and the solos as-and-when. “Transcending Deep Infinity” begins with slapdash distortion but its torrent of noise still finds a basic rhythm and relies on the psych rawk, because even space can’t destroy this genre’s hype.
