Three years on from the bands acclaimed ‘Grateful End’ album, and following up last years reissue of their live release ‘Psychedelic Scum Freaks’. Taipei's underground psych monsters Dope Purple return with their new album proper, ‘This Is The Harsh Trip For New Psyche’
The album is co released again by Riot Season & WV Sorcerer Productions and is available on three vinyl variants, and also digitally.
The album, it's a mixture of harsh noise and psych rock, the noise element being well recorded and presented so we can hear many details, and blends perfectly with the other instruments in all frequencies. The whole album moves between a spectral sadness and insanity, each track takes a rather different direction, recognising the influence of Classic Japanese bands such as High Rise, Mainliner, and Les Rallizes Dénudés.
The album is a collaboration with Berserk, a young underground pioneer from the Taipei scene, and has been performing chaotic frequency manipulation and carefully textured post-apocalyptic soundscape since 2015.
The cover features hand-drawn artwork by Japanese artist 柏木辿 Ten Kashiwagi, and the mixing/mastering was taken care of once again by 濁朗 Darklaw from Japan, perfectly capturing the aesthetic and technical aspects of the recording.
