Tentacula

Genre: Surf/Psych Rock

Origin: AT

 

Release the... eeehmm... Kraken? Or are we talking about another gigantic cosmic creature both divine and demonic whose arrival means the end of the world as we know it? Well, maybe. It might also be seen as a symbol that shows the awe and admiration for both the only flying mermal and possibly the smartest creature living in the oceans. In any case also as a hommage to H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and Sir Christopher Lee’s impersonation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

 

Long story short... whatever you may interpret into Tentacula...The name is their program! And this mystical neologism keeps its promise: dark, reverb-drenched melodies and haunting riffs create a refreshing blend, somewhere between dreamy psychedelic- and dirty garage-rock. Spiced up with a very distinct female voice that might come from the queen of darkness herself who summons the gods of Liquid Thunder together with her fellow cultists.

 

While the Necronomicon does not have an entry about Tentacula yet, they chose to write their own history. Tentaculove, the band’s first record is currently in production and will approximately hit terrestrial surface with the arrival of the Perseids. And whether or not there is a cosmic creature imprisoned in a sunken city here on earth - which, as scientists claim, may even be located right underneath the Nepomuk pond, be especially aware of tentacles when you are close to the water’s surface.
