Sys Malakian new LP Unknown Creatures is available now on colored vinyl

Hi! My new album called Unknown Creatures by Otitis Media Records is available now on colored vinyl. This time I played all the instruments, recorded, mixed and mastered for vinyl. Here is also a little description of what you can listen:

Brand new sounds from the composer of "Sin Retorno" and "Nondum me amat", Sys Malakian. This LP contains an evolution of sound, going from classic instrumental surf music to lydian/phrygian songs. What is Drip? will teach you just about it, Infinite Space will make you travel around space, then you gonna come back to earth and listen to the post surf Trail Of Tears, in Bioluminiscencia you will have a relax mixture of sounds, after that you gonna have a Dolphin Ride to a little town called Pueblito. When you come back to sea, you will need to figure out what to do if you are face to face with a Megalodon, listening to the horror surf song Las Caricaturas while escaping, then you will be watching the Atardecer on your board, suddenly a Giant Squid will drown you deep down to his Domain, you will be eaten and become a Zombie, but at the end you gonna enjoy a Banquete with all the gods and goddesses at the pure greek style.

photo

Insanitizers' "Reverb Rockets" album welcomes you to 2022 with 14 high-adventure newly recorded instrumentals. Hear an energetic re-recording of our award-winning song "Shootout" and memorable new songs such as "Improper Tango," "Wild Loco Motive," and "Spacewalk." It's at https://insanitizers.bandcamp.com/album/reverb-rockets .

Brief comments:
Pristine reverb tones with harmonic distortion effect used only in sections of Fright Night and Doctor Space.

  1. Improper Tango. Gorgeous tone, strong melodies. No one can hear it only once.

  2. Wild Loco Motive. Runaway fast yet on track. Best with headphones.

  3. Fright Night. Genuinely scary. Two bass guitars accompany, one on each channel.

  4. Spacewalk. Impressionistic amalgam of sleepwalk with somewhere over the rainbow.

  5. The Escape. Bluesy surf with emotional improvisations in the middle.

  6. Surfin' the Stars 2. Rocketing adventures.

  7. Yup. Bonafide organ with colossal tone and strong beat. Onions, onions!

  8. Shootout 2. Grows in intensity.

  9. Exotic Planet Charm. Psychedelic surf guitar. Twangy bass guitar lead for last verse. A scifi theme.

  10. Huntington Surf 2. High surf guitar.

  11. Murder in Paradise. Danger twang.

  12. Spacedrunk OOO. Snappy. Like Popcorn.

  13. Galactic Tide 2. Organlike guitar accompaniment and bridge lead insanitizes it.

  14. The Arrival of Doctor Space 2. Another scifi theme...knock knock...Doctor Space Who?
