It’s getting harder to be heavy AND original these days. In the world of riffing it seems a template was created and thusly many are following along instead of attempting to pioneer something different. I think I can say with certain sanctity that Palace in Thunderland are doing something different and succeeding. These guys have been around for a long time (over a decade) and are a home to members of esteemed bands Black Pyramid, Blue Aside and Space Mushroom Fuzz. They took a five year break, returning from the void with an exciting vision collecting together the best of 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s heavy rock. There’s no aping, lifting, copycatting, etc. The foursome simply calls upon their idols for inspiration, taking the asteroid handed down by the elders and crashing it into Earth. I sit down at the edge of the universe for an interview meet n’ greet with these entheogenic lifeforms.
