Description:

We are so stoked to present a big comeback, a dream come true! Heavy Psych Sounds Records is reissuing first three albums of the Swedish legendary band Dozer: In The Tail Of A Comet (2000, Man's Ruin Records), Madre De Dios (2001) and Call It Conspiracy (2003, both out via Molten Universe). Three masterpieces of the European stoner scene. These three records elevated the scene to a higher level and gave Dozer the scepter of the Scandinavian stoner movement. In the post-Kyuss era, Dozer, along with bands like Los Natas and Acid King, brought a flurry of pure, desert-style monolithic riffs and tons of fuzz guitars. The songwriting on all these three albums was what really distinguished Dozer from the other bands of the early 2000's. The band had a very big influence on the European stoner bands and we can definitely say Dozer are one of the European stoner godfathers. Dozer's last album was Beyond Colossal in 2008, we don't know if they will ever return back with a new release but in the meantime we can enjoy this special “threesome”... The reissues will be released in a bunch of very special coloured vinyl editions, a unique opportunity to have these records on vinyl. Actually, it will be the very first time In The Tail Of A Comet will be released on a single vinyl !!! As with hundreds of other young Swedish bands, Dozer was the obvious answer to the boredom of a small town youth in a land where the sun seldom visits. After forming in 1995, Dozer emerged in 1998 with their debut 7" which was awarded “Single of the week” in KERRANG! magazine. Dozer quickly progressed beyond their early influences and created a style of their own incorporating modern elements into their classic heavy rock sound. A sound that always has been intensely heavy but yet also strongly song and melody driven by the distinctive vocals of singer Fredrik Nordin. Dozer has carefully culivated a following like none other and a reputation second to none due mostly assuredly to their constant touring and explosive live shows. Dozer scattered releases on labels like Meteor City, Man’s Ruin, & their own Molten Universe before finding a home at Small Stone. With albums like “Madre De Dios” & “Through the Eyes of Heathens” these simple Swede’s have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of stoner rock, often placed upon the same pedestal as the fathers of the movement - Kyuss and Monster Magnet. With the release of their 5th full length album “Beyond Colossal,” these sons of Sweden seemed poised to teach the Underground a lesson or two about what Rock and Roll is all about. Recorded between Studios 301 in Stockholm and Rockhuset Studios in their hometown of Borlänge, “Beyond Colossal” oozes with both the bleakness and beauty of the landscape. One can almost feel the sub-arctic winter cold that forces Tommi Holappa’s fingers to moves with superhuman speed alternating between beer chugging riffs and lightning solo’s. After a hiatus the band came back again with some live shows over the last years. In 2020 they are planning an Australian tour. Meanwhile they got a deal with the cult label Heavy Psych Sounds which will re-release the bands first three albums In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy. The releases will see the light in march 2020 in a bunch of amazing coloured vinyl versions and digipaks.
