Black Heat Shujaa - Edge Of An Era

“Heavy Mental” psych rockers BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA will
release their sophomore LP The Edge Of An Era, on April 9th.
The follow up to the Los Angeles trio's critically acclaimed Tee
Pee debut EP, The Storm Generation, The Edge Of An Era sees
the über-talented band’s enticing blend of genres combine to
shape a sound unlike anything you’ve likely heard before; one
that has been called “a dissonant symphony unveiling visions
of great natural expanses.” BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA’s
transcendental tension between its heavy rock roots and an
organic inclination to drift towards psychedelia pays homage to
the vast collection of mind-expanding sounds the trio grew up
on: neo-psychedelia, surf rock, spaghetti westerns, Middle
Eastern scales and even Far Eastern melodies! Produced by
desert session legend Scott Reeder (Sunn O))), The Obsessed,
Orange Goblin) and mastered at Ventura, CA's Golden
Mastering (Primus, Sonic Youth, Calexico), The Edge Of An Era
boasts guest appearances by both Nobel Prize-nominated
gonzo poet Ron Whitehead and desert rock pioneer Mario Lalli
(Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man) adding even more color to BLAAK
HEAT’s signature psych rock! Prepare to take a windswept
magic carpet ride over vast plains of desert soundtrack
"Parisian trio Blaak Heat Shujaa has decamped to L.A., and the
scorching of year-round sun pleasantly stains this psychedelic
desert-rock record. The band moves between thick,
bass-driven riffing, lo-fi surf rock, Cisnerosian lyrics, cues that
sound borrowed from an Ennio Morricone score, and even slam
poetry." – THE ONION
"Colored by elements of garage rock, surf, classic Western film
soundtracks and even the occasional Middle Eastern twinge...a
sweet, hot, brain-stretching album." – EXCLAIM!
