Mother Engine - Hangar (Heavy Psych)

Mother Engine Hangar Heavy Psych
30 September 2017

German trio Mother Engine return with their third full-length of sprawling prog-inspired instrumentals.

Hanger breaks from the more song-based format of the previous two albums with four massive compositions clocking in at about twenty minutes each. Within the constantly evolving tracks, numerous elements emerge, from classic blues-based psychedelia to heavy stoner rock and even Eastern sounds and MC5-infused jazz. Chris Trautenbach’s guitar constantly flows in a blend of Randy Holden, Robert Fripp and Isaiah Mitchell from Earthless while the rhythm section of bassist Christian Dressel and drummer Cornelius GrĂ¼nert range the propulsion between metal heaviness, krautrock repetition and avant garde space. It’s extreme musicianship without the pretentiousness that typically accompanies it.
