This record shows how Al Lover can re invent his already unique style and come up with something as incredible as Cave Ritual. Starting with the incredibly tense Genesis Porridge at an amazing 20min 56sec the track could easily be found in the archives of some 80′s sic fi horror classic. The B side bring an overall 60′s garage rhythm mixed with vintage drum machine sounds and a little more of that 80′s sic fi feel. Altogether you won’t find another record with such a unique sound thats carved out so perfectly and leaving you asking “where can I get more?”.
Al Lover should be on tour in the new year to promote the record…. more news on that soon. Till then have a listen to the tittle track Cave Ritual below..
“Al Lover is a groundbreaking artist, you might say a pioneer fusioneer (is that even a word..?), the only one I’ve encountered of his brand. Blending and looping traditional psychedelic/garage rock (retro and contemporary) with heavy beats into something completely new, the outcome is a hypnotic trancending kraut of epic proportions, with massive out-of-body-experience appeal!” – Sly Vinyl
““Genisis Porridge” is Al Lover’s psychedelic arrival, his terrifying ascension through a portal where there is little looking back to be done”. – Impose Magazine
“His latest (and greatest) LP – Cave Ritual”. – The Bay Bridged
