Mike Lysergic lightning strikes thrice upon heavy psychedelic soil. The fore-ruptured zenith bleeding premium compositions into the twilight sky, from which a timely trio craft silver sonics and spin golden grooves. While seers assume coyote shapes and snakes araise on molten lakes, all heed the sound that Kaleidobolt makes.

With one foot in classic heavy power trio rock’n’roll and the other knee deep in psychedelic frenzy, Finland’s Kaleidobolt blast off into inner space with their third album Bitter. Having perfected their craft on the road all across Europe, with two previous albums under their collective belt, Kaleidobolt have become a fierce live experience, guaranteed to blow minds and ears.

Kaleidobolt, however are far from your usual deafening stoner rock experience. Their music is all about texture and depth, and beneath the lysergically frenzied riffs hide worlds of exquisite soundscapes. For the new album the band decided to take an even greater leap into worlds beyond and hired Niko Lehdontie (Kairon; IRSE! and Oranssi Pazuzu) to produce the album and Lauri Eloranta (the current go-to guy in Finland for indie pop and rock bands) to mix it.

"We aim to make music that sounds dangerous, that is on its way to critical mass and could all fall apart at any moment", comments bassist Marco Menestrina, "This time we were thankful to have Niko the producer with us to ensure things were kept freaky and noisy enough."

Bitter is rock music frenzy that intermittently disintegrates into sonic cotton candy and the occasional western theme. Bitter is also Kaleidobolt's debut for Svart Records, and we are proud to release it on May 31st on LP, CD and digital formats.

Track Name: I Am The Seer
Come on my child, come on my dear
Come on my darling, come oh so near
Follow me down to the alley of dreams
Fulfil your lust with my choice elixir

Memories are tearing me apart
Memories that turn me on

Gather around me, give up your fears
Gather around me, I am the seer
Look through the mirror: what do you see?
A decaying reflection of yesteryear
