If you’re looking to “turn off your mind, relax and float downstream,” as the Beatles once suggested, we’ve got a doomy/psychedelic track premiere, “Above the Bloodline,” from Swiss post-metal quartet Preamp Disaster that’ll do the trick. This roiling, slow-burner churns along with alternating atmospheric guitar lines over an ascending rhythm for several minutes until the arrival of guitarist/vocalist Urs Schnyder, who shouts a few lines of lyrics as the rest of the band—drummer Sandro Hächler, guitarist Damian Ruckstuhl and bassist/synths Silvan Weibel—brings the song to a crunching close.
The foreboding tune is one of four tracks on Preamp Disaster’s upcoming fourth studio album, By The Edges, due for release on February 4, 2022 via Czar of Crickets Productions. “Above the Bloodline” will see its official release as the album’s first single on Friday, January 14. You can preorder the album—CD or vinyl—here.
