Oh what wonderful things were happening here. Just wish it turned out to be more than just a side project with Egypt's drummer Chad and Guitar player Neal play on some of the EP. Shows just how good these guys are when they can take a side project like this and make it turn out so stellar. Instrumental greatness.
Favorite track: White Hot Mescaline Fever.
Hypnotic rhythm and basslines abound throughout this recording, strongly underlying crankin' guitars that at times turn out a total shred-fest! Heavily influenced, in different measures, by traditional blues, psychedelia and stoner rock jams. Goat Horns And Pentacles in particular reminds me (musically) of the sHEAVY track, Electric Sleep!
Favorite track: Livin' in a Whiskey Bottle Blues.
Love the sound on this so much I had to order the CD. Not an official Egypt release just a "mere" side project by their drummer. RETROROCKTASTICRIFFORAMA.
Favorite track: Julius Pleaser and the Renegade Brigade.
El Supremo was an instrumental solo project by EGYPT drummer, Chad Heille. Killer stoner jams. First time available in digital format!!! Exclusive to Bandcamp. It was originally released on CD in 2008. The record also features EGYPT guitar player, Neal Stein, playing lead guitar on half of the tracks.
