Ecstatic Vision have exploded onto Philadelphia’s scene with one of the most thrilling guitar-driven records in a LONG time. The trio have properly captured the sound of their phenomenal, hell of a ride live show which in time earned them a signing to Relapse Records. Sonic Praise weaves the guitar heroics of the ’70s heavy classics of UFO and Hawkwind with the rhythmic intensity of Sun Ra and Fela Kuti. Massive riffs vibe seamlessly with deep rhythms to create one of the most original and best heavy psych debuts in years.

Recorded at various studios throughout Philadelphia, the group’s debut is an acid-tinged mix of trance inducing, primitive African tribal and heavy psych a la Hawkwind, Goat and Amon Düül II. The band formed in early 2014 and have already played numerous high profile shows like Pallbearer, Georgia’s Meltasia Festival alongside Black Lips, Nik Turner’s Hawkwind and toured North America with YOB and Enslaved.
