Ruby The Hatchet's vivid heavy dreamscape Valley Of The Snake

Valley Of The Snake grooves on at a slow but driven pace with a fantastic warm and fuzzy growl brought to peaking with the alluring vocals of Jillian Taylor.

Philadelphia's Ruby The Hatchet have released a vivid heavy dreamscape Valley Of The Snake on both digital and analog formats. The 5 piece are yet another contemporary band reaching back into 60s and 70s sounds of yesteryear bringing new life to the psychedelic music scene.

Valley Of The Snake grooves on at a slow but driven pace with a fantastic warm and fuzzy growl brought to peaking with the alluring vocals of Jillian Taylor. The heavy layered mix of bass, guitar, organ and drums create that thick familiar wall of sound that makes the psych stoner sound so lovely to the the ears. The album is for the most part dark and edgy brought to a close with a predominately acoustic ballad with flourishes of flute that rounds the whole trip smoothy. For those that require names, the sound is parts of the heavier side of Deep Purple mixed with a good dose of Sabbath and a very light sprinkle of Led Zeppelin.

Like many of the other great bands currently releasing psych, stoner and doom Valley Of The Snake is superbly executed and produced. For those of you who won't have it any other way, it's of course available on vinyl. Have a listen and pick up a copy of Valley Of The Snake at Band Camp.
