Demo: Throne of the Void in the Hundred Petal Lotus

This one was actually a submission by no other than the man behind Concrete Lo-Fi Records and mastermind in Queen Elephantine, Indy. This is a self titled demo from his new Rhode Island based project called Throne of the Void in the Hundred Petal Lotus which is some really low-end, tribal, groovy and eerie heavy psych. You can hear hints of many different bands in this unique demo including Ufomammut, Om, Naam, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth and, of course, Queen Elephantine as it takes you on a slow, mind melting 16 minute journey through fuzzed out riffs, meditative chanting, tribal drum beats and haunting whispers.

Obviously I didn't really have to think twice about posting this after hearing how incredible it sounds (and combining that with an already raging Queen Elephantine obsession). I've already seen this posted on a few other music blogs here and there but I'm thinking this should be as widespread news as possible so download this demo, check out their myspace, and book them for some shows as they are looking to play!
