The Cosmic Dead are a psychonautal cosmodelic buckfaustian quartet from Glasgow, Scotland. Since 2010, they have been exploring the outer reaches of Krautrock, doom and psychedelia, tasting the extremes of sound and fusing them into a single, all-enveloping web of stratospheric riffing, otherworldly ambience and kosmische textures that has spread itself across countless shows throughout all Europe.
For anyone who hasn’t yet stood before the Dead and their live homage to the cosmos, expect religious devotion to synthesised dreamworlds, subsonic grooves, guitaristic splendour and the vast, hypnotic sounds of Hawkwind and Popol Vuh eternally jamming in the Möbius strip of time and space.
New album “Scottish Space Race” is due next September on Riot Season.
“Like having Ken Kesey and Spacemen 3 pour Irn-Bru directly into your third eye.” – The Quietus
“Clothing their spacerock epics in lead overcoats found in doom’s wardrobe while also occasionally drawing upon metal’s brutal thrash, The Cosmic Dead certainly don’t do things by halves” – Buzz Mag
“Alienating, hypnotizing, their performance is a big block heavy psych” – Give Violence a Chance
