The Philadelphia trio Ecstatic Vision introduced their brand of heavy primal psych influenced by groups like Hawkwind, Aphrodites Child, Olatunji, Can and early Amon Duul ll in late 2013. Formed in Philadelphia to primarily “play what they wanted to hear,” the band quickly rose to those in the know as a force to be reckoned with.
They have toured with metal acts like YOB and Enslaved; they signed to the metal-associated label Relapse Records, and they look like a metal band. However, Ecstatic Vision’s 2015 five-song debut, Sonic Praise, only occasionally intersects with metal, and when it does, it resembles bands like Hawkwind or Monster Magnet or Earthless. In 2015 the band toured the US with prestigious acts such Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats and others.
This was followed by a European run that saw them perform at the legendary Roadburn Festival in addition to dates with Bang, Pentagram, and more.
In 2017, Ecstatic Vision returned with their 2nd LP Raw Rock Fury, an even more tripped out showcasing of the band’s raucous mix of troglodyte Detroit rock grooves. These are sun-baked, cloud-high psychedelic jams, drawing from free jazz, Krautrock, and Afrobeat. The result is music that lives up to the lofty promises made in both the band’s name and their album’s title. Do not miss them kicking the stage at Cascina Bellaria!
