Colour Haze - Tempel (2006)
The seventh album from this German band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars and some vocals.
A keyboardist is helping them out with sporadic keyboards.
The band has gone from strength to strength on their albums.
Their basic formula on riff based dirty space rock is the same throughout. But the band manages to give each album it's own identity and soul.
Tempel sees the band retreat more back to the basic of their sound and musical expression.
The addition of some pretty discreet keyboards and organ sounds adds a lot of value to their music again and sees their music gets another dimension.
The riffs are also compact and dirty. Pretty monumental too. Parts of this album has an insane groove who makes even the less groovy person wanna groove to the music.
And that is how good modern space rock should sound. And there are very few, if any, better bands than this band in this scene.
This is another very good album from this German band and one to move your body to for all space rock fans.
