Band Name Novadriver. 版公司 Small Stone Recordings. 6. Shoot The Sky. 7. Void. 9. Particle Explosion. 10. Seasons Of Wither. Other productions from Novadriver.
Novadriver's space metal rockets out of Detroit to take you on a warped, interstellar trip "across the universe at the speed of light, alright, alright!" ("End of the Universe"). On Void, Mark Miers' real-deal rock vocals have a slight electronic fuzz, like they've been beamed in from somewhere out there. Blasting from behind are Billy Reedy's Black Sabbath, psychedelic power chords; Jim Anders' nuclear bass riffs; and Eric Miller's smash and bang drums.
Label: Small Stone Records – SS-022.
Novadriver finishes the album with an amazing, big, drugged-out cover of Aerosmith's "Seasons of Wither. This album evokes the heaviness of early '70s metal, when the world was truly rocked by the music. Novadriver makes the wall of riffage leading into guitar deity solos and insanely on the edge drums sound totally new again. On "Particle Explosion," Miers welcomes the listeners to "the ending of all time. Void just might be another big bang. 1 Satellite Night Novadriver 2:52.
Space rock is revived in Novadriver's "Void. Notwithstanding the somewhat critically requisite comparisons to Sabbath, Novadriver veers far closer to early Hawkwind than they do Volume 4 or Master of Reality. The music here, beginning (as one should) with the first track, is largely atmospheric and spare, even as crushing metal waits invariably in the auditory wings. Novadriver seems to have spent a good deal of effort mastering when NOT to play, which is just as important as having a good phase pedal hooked up to one's amp.
SS-022 :: NOVADRIVER – Void. Label: Small Stone Records. Release date: March 20th, 2001. From the riot-burned streets of the Motor City comes Novadrive. sonic high-octane blast of shag-carpeted, metal flake Detroit muscle fused with classic British psychedelia. Imagine Sabbath and the Stooge’s fist fighting at a Hawkwind concert over the last sheet of LSD. Exploring such topics as mind expansion, interstellar travel and tube amplification, Novadriver’s musical attack and creative vision are sure to thrust you into another dimension.
