Ecstatic Vision

New Track: "Astral Plane" - Ecstatic Vision

Ecstatic Vision have taken their previously demoed track "Astral Plane," and properly gave the jam the attention that it called for in the studio. Check out the group's twelve-plus-minute second single, which premiered yesterday at Stereogum, off the band's debut EP Sonic Praise! The album is scheduled to drop on June 30 via Relapse Records, and Ecstatic Vision will be hosting a co-release celebration with Creepoid on Friday, June 26 at Johnny Brenda's.


New Track: "Don't Kill The Vibe" - Ecstatic Vision

We've been really looking forward to the debut album from Ecstatic Vision ever since we caught them live opening for fellow Philly heavy-psych rockers Creepoid at Johnny Brenda's. The band features former A Life Once Lost members Doug Sabolick and Jordon Crouse, and will be releasing its five-song EP Sonic Praise on June 30 via Relapse Records. Check out the first taste of their record below with "Don't Kill The Vibe"!


Ecstatic Vision Opening for Enslaved at Union Transfer March 22

As we await Ecstatic Vision’s debut LP via Relapse Records, they setup shop this evening at Union Transfer. The group relishes in the aura of heavy psych, stomping through in thick engulfing waves that takeover one’s headspace in that pleasant surrender of raunchy rock. Riffs soar in a melodic nature as a prominent primal freakout is formed by the consuming backend thrust and the vocals cut through like a demonic sermon. You’ll want to buy it hook line and sinker. Tonight, they will be joined by a pair of Oregon groups that similarly serve rock cultivated from the dark sludgy corners of the mind. YOB crafts extended doom-y sorcerer tracks, while Witch Mountain is cut from a similar cloth embracing a classic hard-rock core as blunt bass and percussion clear a path through the wilderness. Having just released a new album In Times, Norwegian metal veterans Enslaved complete the circuit with their controlled attack of thunder. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 7pm, $17-$20, All Ages - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Journey To..." - Ecstatic Vision

Uber-heavy psych rockers Ecstatic Vision are currently working in the studio on their debut album for iconic Philly label Relapse Records. Here's a taste of the onslaught to come entitled "Journey To..." It's off the recently released Relapse Sampler 2014, which you can stream and and purchase ("name your price") in its entirety HERE.


Ecstatic Vision Opening for Creepoid at Underground Arts Oct. 23

If the idea of heart-pounding, trance-inducing, raucous rock that temporarily encases listeners in an alternative sonic dimension is the remedy you’ve been looking for, Ecstatic Vision is serving it up at Underground Arts tonight. The band recently signed to Relapse Records, and has plans for releasing its debut early next year. With extended, heavy vibes filled with sweaty fuzzed guitars, relentless backend and scorcher-inspired vocals, be prepared to be sucked in. However, you’ll want to be at UA all night anyway with a lineup that includes the soothing cosmic navigation of neo-psych outfit Drone Ranger, whom are consistently changing speeds as they traverse farther out. Then, there’s Ruby The Hatchet, whose rough-edge 70’s hard rock sound, isn’t so much a throw back but rather a timeless tradition with its interlocked thick, rolling groove and guitar lines that take that step ahead, letting the flames emerge bigger, all while Jillian Taylor’s vocals provide a calming fervor. All this will set the stage for the earthy noise-rock of Creepoid that seeps into your pores and finds a home there. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
