Hypermagic Red Vinyl.
"Hypermagic Mountain is Lightning Bolt's fourth, most well-oiled
album: song-by-song it chugs into rockier Van Halen, Fucking
Champs, or Orthrelm territory." - Pitchfork
Hypermagic Mountain, Lightning Bolt's 4th album has been
unavailable for nearly a decade since it's 2005 release. Back as
a double LP including a full drawing by Brian Chippendale as
the D side Etching! The package includes a large scale 4-page
book (previous pressings included a cd size book). Recorded
at Machines with Magnets and Lightning Bolt's home by Dave
Auchenbach. Lightning Bolt play with abandon that is unmatched
and remarkably undiluted and this album is just one more example
of that raw power and sound.
They are often called one of the loudest rock outfits in existence,
both on record and on (or famously, off) the stage. Brian Gibson
creates sounds that are unexpected and remarkably varied with his
virtuosic bass playing and his inventive approach to the instrument,
centered around melody rather than rhythm. The dizzying fury
of Brian Chippendale's drums twist from primal patterns into
disorienting break beats as his distorted, and echoing vocals weave
more melody into the mayhem.
"Certain loud guitar rock records serve as brain erasers, a
form of shock therapy zapping through aural inputs and (to mix
metaphors) cleaning the proverbial clock. Lightning Bolt is one
such thing." -LA Times
