This should be a full ‘Stoner Surge’ but I prefer to book. Yes, it is true that what you will hear and see today is closely related to the dunes of Palm Desert and, why not say it, with the moles but no, today we are going to give a full-blown exclusive that will be a surprise for many , especially for those who adore and respect the Italians of La Spezia, King Mastino.

Some (I suppose many) will know that the Mastino’s two-headed head, read Alessio Perazzo and Massi, broke a while ago and, while the latter has continued with the mother band making necessary changes and preparing a new album, Alessio, together with the also ex-Mastino Holly, they have opted for the most ardent, reddish and cloaked fuzz music. Adjust the males because I present to you…. RED MOON SHAMAN !!!…

I already knew some little things last December. Alessio, always so attentive to me and careful with his music, put me on notice, he even shared three or four songs with me because he wanted to know with all the sincerity in the world my opinion, which I always appreciated. And the truth is that I did not expect to hear what I heard! The latest King Mastino albums clearly opted for a powerpop high energy and he thought that Alessio was going to exploit this facet outside the discipline of the band and, nothing further of reality !, fuzz, hypnotic structures, sonic density, space rock, heavy psych … I couldn’t believe it !!! and uncle just made me put my teeth bieeeennnn long …

And well, after the arduous work in search of a stamp itching in Heavy Psych Sound, Small Stone Recordings, etc, …, in the middle of April and in these circumstances so adverse with the pandemic in the middle, the RED MOON SHAMAN signed with the Retro Vox Records label that will cover their backs with the good expectations that, I assure you, the band is generating. By the way, the band ?, what band ?, well yes, I forget to tell you that the RMS are a Shaman One, Shaman Two and Shaman Three, I mean, Alessio, Holly and a mysterious third member from the band Dead Swamp .

Finally, on May 15 they published in RRSS their long-awaited first single titled Pale Rider (2020) and … buuuuufffff !!!, I assure you that it is scary to cope with the heat and generate all possible expectations and many more, it is a great song like the top of a pine tree, fiery, fiery, which takes me back to the days of the Monster Magnet Superjudge and the space psych developments of Hawkwind. Alessio convinces in his new facet of Lord of the Desert and Space and I predict a long career for the new creature. They will record album this summer and we will have it before the end of the year but before … let’s play “Pale Rider” again and again !!!
