MORKOBOT - MOSTRO (2007)
Is everyone familiar with the flying saucer controversy in Stephenville, Texas? As the details unfold, I would not be at all surprised to learn that Mostro could be heard blasting from the bizarre craft's hi-fi rock system. MORKOBOT certainly sets the soundtrack for visiting other worlds, some beautiful, some not so much, on this limited release LP (500 hand-numbered copies). Mostro is truly a unique instrumental adventure, drawing equally from SABBATH, FLOYD, and HAWKWIND. Not the easiest listen in the world, but ultimately rewarding, I find Mostro to be a sign of great things to come for this Italian band. Highly recommended for all GOMIES watching for strange happenings in the night sky while enjoying an elevated state of mind.
