GIÖBIAs ´Magnifier´ re-released
Heavy Psych / Cargo, VÖ: 5. Mai 2017
Das 2015 über 'Sulatron Records' veröffentlichte Werk ´Magnifier´ von GIÖBIA (Review siehe hier) erscheint Anfang Mai mit neuem Artwork, neuem Mastering und einem extra Song nochmals über 'Heavy Psych'.
'Magnifier' as an album really does have it all ... some ace psychedelic stylings, some heavy spacerock, some lysergic sixties grooves and some more delicate shimmery shoegazing. It has a heaviness that will appeal to some, and the delicate touch that will appeal to others. Another undisputed success for GIÖBIA.
GIÖBIA has been one of the most influential psychedelic bands in Italy over the last years. Seduced by the lysergic side of the ‘60s, by exotic mantras and the evocative power of space-rock, GIÖBIA is a band from Milano, Italy with many facets and one only faith, that is to turn every encounter with sound into a psychedelic experience. The band counts four members: leader Bazu (vocals and string instruments), Saffo (organ, violin, vocals), Detrji (bass) and Betta (drums) and their name - GIÖBIA - comes from an ancient pre-christian festivity celebrated in Northern Italy when a big straw puppet resembling a witch is burnt as a propitiatory ritual towards the forces of nature.
