Telestrion: Telestrion

Combining the riff energy of such hard rock acts as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Grand Funk Railroad, Mountain, and Cream, with the psychedelic space rock of Pink Floyd and Hawkwind, is the self titled debut from Telestrion. While many bands have come out of the woodwork over the last few years pretending to know how to deliver solid 70's retro rock, Telestrion show here that they have a good handle on these classic sounds and can deliver catchy, memorable songs. From the funky wah-wah drenched "Middle Of Something", to the Sabbath-meets-Floyd stomp of "Melting Away", the spooky dirge "Sleeping Pill", or the psychedelic acid trip epic "Lost in the Sky", there's no shortage of tasty heavy rock flower power on this sucker. Andy Samford & Brian Holcome throw down plenty of crunchy riffs throughout, and their vocals have a sort of Ozzy-meets-Waters delivery to them. Speaking of Pink Floyd, the band even covers the mighty "Astronomy Domine" here, complete with raging guitar lines, eerie vocals, and frightening electronics.

While not re-inventing the wheel, Telestrion is a rather enjoyable slice of 70's psychedelic hard rock, providing plenty of stoner riffs and just enough Moog, Mellotron, and Theremin to keep things interesting.
