Queen Elephantine


Queen Elephantine is "a meditative blues of whirlwind ghost ships forced down the hopeless maelstroms of the Nile". Improvised, modal stoner/doom from Hong Kong, now based in New York. "A meditative space sound, like a solarized wind calmly blowing on an alien planet, or a brace of Tibetan monks on PCP, glued to their prayer mats and ommm-ing themselves to oblivion... There's plenty of galactic bliss... and plenty of underlying dread as well." - Hellride Music, on Surya Read more on Last.fm

There's plenty of galactic bliss... and plenty of underlying dread as well." - Hellride Music, on Surya "A fuzzy muscle play of distorted dirge and Hindu atmospherics that easily embodies the slow majesty of bands like Earth… but this is a rawer, far heavier brew, buckling the confines of the medium, so over-saturated that it almost struggles for definition.

The instruments take on a scary dynamic, like a vibrating cloud of flies, distorted in the heat. It's hard to avoid the magnetic pull of that turbine shackled hertz, or that accompanying tinsel soak from the cymbals, even the words seem to be dragging you through the dusty soil on mystic hooks." - Rottenmeats, on Kailash "To put this band into some sort of perspective, I would have to put them sort of what Pink Floyd or Hawkwind would be if they went metal while on serious rounds of downers while experimenting with some instruments from India… Forceful yet very melancholy, with this overall bleak feeling that nears the bottom of pure desperation in every word sung... Pretty heavy shit. My first experience with this truly unique band, left me needing and wanting more of the same...

8/10" -Doom Mantia, on Garland of Skulls "Your brand new Eastern drone gods 4.9/5" -RockSellOut "Some of the craziest psych this side of Alan Watts!" -Doom Metal Alliance "This is doom rock and its brooding, soul-stripping best." - Hong Kong Magazine "Young psychedelic rock masters... It will blow your head off." - Doom-sludge.com "An absolutely blissful place to get lost in for an hour or three... Like Floyd without the legacy." - HK Underground.. "So heavy that I couldn't wear headphones while I was listening caus it would be hard to hold my head up..." - ProgNotFrog http://queenelephantine.clfrecords.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
