New Band To Burn One To-Spelljammer

The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Spelljammer.


Spelljammer was formed in late 2007 by former high school friends Niklas Olsson and Robert Sörling while attending a Fu Manchu concert. The aim was to simply play heavy music that had a connection to the music they grew up listening to. Their influence came from such acts as Sleep, Kyuss and of course Black Sabbath. Drummer Mattias Johansson and bassist Cloffe Caspersson soon joined and work begun on the debut EP, Inches From The Sun. The record was finished in 2009 but is yet to be released. Meanwhile Johansson was replaced by Oscar Olseryd, and they're now working on their second album.
Apart from their own record, the songs Nine and Mountainside were featured on the compilation albums, Cowbells and Cobwebs and Droning Earth Masters of Volume 36 respectively.

Current lineup:
Robert Sörling (guitar)
Niklas Olsson (vocals, guitar)
Cloffe Caspersson (bass)
Oscar Olseryd (drums)

Here is yet another pretty amazing Stoner Rock band from Sweden, and man do these guys really deliver the goods. Slow, bass-heavy, and insanely fuzzed-out stoner doom jams are what this band is all about. Go to their Bandcamp page now to hear for yourself.
