Charlie Hodgson A great stoner metal album, a nice variety of tracks, listened quite a lot to this one. Favorite track: Desert Moon (Feat. Dave Sherman).

Justinuff Red Mesa play the sound of the Desert in their own unique way. Gathering inspiration, and styles morphing along the way. Seeds of Americana are sown. Sludgy riffs and desert winds blown. Mescal rites and biker bar fights!! If you thought the desert was Jim Morrison or Josh Homme, think again. The stoned psych sound of the high desert biker blues will obliterate your perceptions!!

THE PATH TO THE DEATHLESS When I was born, I was never dead Life, it crept into my head Comin' out of a big black hole Opened my mind, opened my soul I walk the path The Path To The Deathless Coming out of the hole again Comin' 'round and up and again Climbing up the mountainside Spread my ash o'er the oceanside I walk the path The Path To The Deathless They don't know They don't know Like I know They don't know Livin' in the shadows (x2) I walk the path The Path To The Deathless

Swallowed by the Sea As the sun descends So far away at the water's edge Regrettably leaving all of us behind As Lahanna to watches o’er the sky Wishing it could stay, to relive the day A slave to its own way While the wanderings of the moon Have their way Sleep comes And then we wait For the tide to return Will the moon allow us to be Swallowed by the sea The waves came lapping close But still so far away, for to dissipate our fears of being Swallowed by the sea Death embrace me as I embrace you For I know that I am unbound Waiting for the ebb of the tide For I know I’ll never truly die

Red Mesa's third studio album is a concept about death and beyond. This full-length features the blend of desert rock/doom metal/heavy psych/western singer-songwriter/folk that only the Albuquerque, NM trio can create and deliver.
No doubt, this is Red Mesa's heaviest and most exciting album to date.

Guest musicians include:
Wino (The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan) on "Disharmonious Unlife"
Dave Sherman (Eathride, Galactic Cross, Spirit Caravan) on "Desert Moon"

Recorded at Empty House Studio by Matthew Tobias (OM, SuperGiant, Al Cisneros solo albums) and mastered by John McBain (original guitarist of Monster Magnet) in January and February of 2020.

Original album artwork by Joshua Mathus.
