Warfaring Strangers – Acid Nightmares


Warfaring Strangers – Acid Nightmares
Numero Group Records – 2017
Proto Metal, Acid Rock, Psychedelic Fuzz
Rated: *****

A double album of forgotten riff monsters that the Bandcamp description sums up nicely. “As the hippie movement hurdled towards its emanate demise, bad vibes infiltrated the rock world. Tainted LSD, loud motorcycles, and a series of brutal deaths spawned inspiration for guitar-wielding teenagers across the globe. Implementing deafening fuzz and satanic screams to create their proto-metal monstrosities, short-lived stoner bands pressed their lysergic experiments in microscopic quantities before blacking out entirely. Lifted from the ashes of the acid rock hell fire are 18 distorted tales of dope fiends, pill poppers, and the baddest of trips.” Just like the “Nuggets” series which introduced the world to forgotten tracks that featured fuzz, riffs and finding yourself, this moves forward in time to when the Woodstock dream was dying, love beads were replaced with leather jackets and bands started using riffs as weapons, fuzz boxes were cranked up and bad drugs being dealt on the streets. This, Acid Nightmares collection is topping my albums of the year list. Recommended.
