"Revenge is served cold"

The geography of the small town of Colorado could not be more appropriate for the baptism of the new selection hopes. Since the decal of icy mountains winding through the bumpy coating, designed by the miners of the nineteenth century, physical space that fits perfectly within the Aspen Music figurative. Metamorphosis of "larva" Cosmic Vishnu much impact caused the infamous youtube, web installment of a universe where everything happens and rises, with three sample chapters gathered in "Colossus Mountain." An instrumental and undeniable colossus designed by James Pereira and Cristiano Veloso, two teenagers in the house 16 years that emulated the grip of a hardened city - Barcelos - quite different from what it is today. The early age was the stimulus reaction to apathy in the parable of the applicant city "apathy". The desire to make music was the size of the Himalayas. The point on the map was, at times, a reflection of the love-hate which required not only the raging guitars of therapy as a catalyst to speed the battery. In the stunned silence of a strategy to undermine the mob, this seed sprang the Aspen, consolidation mold basilar group, incorporating Victor Pereira, guitarist converted to low.
And yet, the city has changed as a "butterfly" changing the Cosmic Vishnu generated. Back was a cult of a tiny masterpiece with psychedelic stoner throne in "Iron Ships On the Silver Sea." There were concerts successive samples dizzying social networks, renewed the worship ... and suddenly, the mist fell again. The night and the drums fell silent and retreated in Aspen. In the cauldron where these young druids cooked hallucinogenic substances, resulted in the band's first work, a pe of 5 themes espoused "Winds of Revenge", published by Porto "Lovers & Lollypops". Serious bass clenched teeth, the sound operation of post rock ambience gave his hand the density doom that exorcised this seventh seal. The casings returned in the prelude to "Arashi" cannon fodder for what comes next. "Autopsy Headcrush" is exactly that, a fractured skull exposed the tragic consequences of a Suma Red Sparowes and a ride that precedes the title song is pleasing to say is simple: Matt Pike and his High on Fire. The firmness, consistency, sludge. A song of war spartan. "They Drop Like Crows" play again with that ambiguity vs post rock doom. Molten steel by the masters Russian Circles and Capricorns. Whoever dies with irons irons with woods. The funeral march that closes the album is majestic. A symphony of hell cut the princess of darkness, "Owing to Lilith" is the fifth track of "Worshipping Doom" of Bongripper. Lucifer's concubine and wife of Samael, the Aspen sing here despite the slow occult intercourse by biblical mythology. The earliest history of the planet.
The war machine is properly oiled. Have Barcelos, neither large mountains confers implode over time with this tectonic movement, called Aspen. "Winds of Revenge" is a dish best served cold. - Manuel A. Fernandes (Vice Mag)


EP - Winds of Revenge (



Aspen was born from the ashes of Cosmic Vishnu (a band that was born on a music boom of a small town in Portugal, wich saw the first steps of very good bands such as Black Bombaim, the Glockenwise, and others) the old stoner-doom duo that created the remarkable "Colossus Mountain" EP, wich travelled through blogs, streaming, radios and other information sites on the web. Unfortunately the band was "dead" before that propagation around the world; and its from here that Aspen's history begins, the same two guys started to play a different kind of sound, a more ambiental, dronie and post-rock sound, wich quickly changed to the old doom a little bit more fast and with those ambiental and dronie sounds incorporated resulting on a mix combining the old heavy lessons with the new visions on exploring sounds and frequencies with the addition of a thrid member on bass! Having travelled around Portugal and Spain for two years the band finally hits the studio and record their first EP, entitled "Winds of Revenge" wich is available on full stream at the band's bandcamp, through the label Lovers and Lollypops!
