Colour Haze - CO2 (2000)

"I've heard a lot of great music since we started this site, There is so much talent out there in hard music. Even the stuff that isn't so great, you have to tip your hat to because someone had a dream big enough to put it on a CD. Reviewing makes me feel like an asshole sometimes. I don't want to be the one to crush dreams, but as a heshrock journalist, I must calls 'em as I see's 'em. And for every CD I love, someone else is going to trash. That's just how it is. The magic just don't work for everybody.

So lemme call this one as I see's it.. Germany's Colour Haze is fucking incredible.

Colour Haze is head music....a swirling hybrid of Kyuss, Natas and perhaps the hypnotic ambiance of Spacemen 3, but with an originality to distance themselves from all three....slow lazy guitar jams followed by a valley of bass then mountains of pure distortion. Musicians joining together in elation, luckily captured by recording equipment, something the Grateful Dead did on stage at those rare times, something they called the X factor. No explaining, just three musicians coming together in a syncopated harmony of rhythm and distortion. Singer/guitarist Stefan Kogiek's voice weaves in and out of the music, sometimes cool and mellow, other times drenched in adrenaline."Shine", "Inside" and title track "CO2" are the musical equivalents of tantric ecstasy, radiating an brilliant afterglow long after the CD player stops.. A rare and incredible find."
