After "Heliosphere", I just had to have more of Mantra Machine and "Nitrogen" just caught me. With solid, almost psychedelic grooves coupled with an overlay of hard-hitting power chords and soaring guitar solos, this is some very varying (sorry!) music. Foundations provided by hugely consistent and furious percussions, this album takes you from dizzying heights of energy to drop you back into soothing chills that resemble a more stoner feel. This is definitely one of the best buys!
Favorite track: Thistle.

This is absolute quality that will fill any psychonaut with joy. ‘Nitrogen’ is a heavenly, instrumental trip through the universe, both the physical and the mental one.

"...Mantra Machine walks proudly in the instrumental footsteps of Kyuss and The Desert Sessions while bringing ode to the Dutch stoner/ psych masters like 35007, Hypnos 69, Gomer Pyle and 7Zuma7.
With a distinct interstellar touch leaning into prog and space rock territory, these guys combine the best of both worlds to create a bass-heavy fuzzed out instrumental trip that's remarkably addictive. Get hooked and hypnotized!"
Inspired by great 90's bands like Kyuss, the Melvins and Alice in Chains, Cosmic Android produces their own tube-driven rock full of catchy riff's, ass-kicking beats and psychedelic whimsy. Mantra Machine
