"Moose Factory Review"

Dom Keller hail from Nottingham and are currently stumbling in a rather aggressive haze around the country. 'We Left Our World' is a trippy soup of Stooges/Black Sabbath meets Acid Mothers Temple with the singer from Suicide showing up to mumble something occasionally. Dom Keller's mix of all out rock and psychedelic manipulations of overall sound are captivating. If Iggy Pop, Tony Iommi, Lou Reed and Kawabata Makoto went to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Dom Keller would be the house band! - Moose Factory


"Cult of dom keller review"

"Dom Keller sound like they've fallen from the back of Ken Kesey's legendary LSD loaded magic bus, down 'n' dirty slabs of fried freak beat are sumptuously decoded within a swamp infested heavy beatnik chassis, part acid laced shade wearing psyche and part heavy stoner goo, a wasted baby laced with hazy 60's sourced keys and looping gridlocked riffs of mind expanding proportions; a blissed out frenzied fuzz laced tripping haze and bone rattling f**k you,a bludgeoned blues bastardisation spewed out by a tranced out Brian Jonestown Massacre amid an impenetrably squalling sonic wall feedback fisticuffs with a volatile 13th Floor Elevators" - Losing Today


"Terrascope review EP1"

Fans of space-rock, early Floyd and Hawkwind in particular, should look out for Dom Keller, whose four track self-titled CD is a feast of crushing guitar riffs, effects and psychedelic madness. Their stated mission is "To document our hallucinations into sonic impressions", something they achieve! - Terrascope


"The Austinist review CODK at AP4"

The Cult of Dom Keller is sizzling acid sickness, and it is highly contagious.
This band was one of our Psych Fest favorites.
The ideal venue for their sweeping, spacey, fuzzed-out sound, hard charging rhythms and slow, trance chant vocals would be a black light opium den with crushed velvet wallpaper.
Unfortunately, ours is currently undergoing renovation, so we had to settle for seeing them on the second stage at Seaholm Power Plant, which played up the bit of garage rock they've worked into their music.
Their retro early new wave aesthetics come off effortlessly and without affectation.
We very much hope that they’ll leave their UK homeland for a USA tour in the near future, and look forward to more lengthy releases than the two EP’s they’ve released since their inception in 2008 - The Austinist

Bio

CULT OF DOM KELLER arrived on earth in 2008.

In its few years of existence, The Cult has managed to bestow upon our eardrums an abundance of merciless, psychedelic, whacked out sound via a string of limited edition EPs.

The band was born when four Nottingham musicians were drawn together by a love of old blues records, David Lynch’s films and William Burroughs’ novels.

At the very beginning the Cult used, quite aptly, to rehearse in a church cellar.

The jams that resulted soon became EP1, a stream of unconsciousness, a bad trip that first drew the listeners in, just to subsequently bury them alive in otherworldly sounds.

People seemed to dig the blissful torture and the Cult ended up playing with the likes of The Warlocks, Asteroid No.4, A Quarter After and Spectrum.

EP2 arrived in January 2011 and it contained four visceral, acid tinged tracks that led them to being asked to play at the 2011 Austin Psych Fest.

On 11/11/11 EP3 came to light.

This last effort sees the band getting, if possible, even deeper and darker.

These seven new compositions will enrapture you with their lysergic and fuzzy textures.

The band will be releasing their "Swamp Heron" single on February 27th on US label Custom Made Music and in March will be releasing their "Painted Skulls" single through Canadian label Leaning Trees.

In April they will be releasing a split EP with The Vacant Lots on Austin USA's premiere psyche label Reverberation Society with an album for release shortly after.

The Cult Of Dom Keller offers a live experience that is totally synesthetic and that will involve and shock all your senses.

To taste a bit of the wonder, just explore the band’s You Tube channel, a rich collection of mesmerizing sounds and visions.

"Dom Keller sound like they've fallen from the back of Ken Kesey's legendary LSD loaded magic bus, down 'n' dirty slabs of fried freak beat are sumptuously decoded within a swamp infested heavy beatnik chassis, part acid laced shade wearing psyche and part heavy stoner goo, a wasted baby laced with hazy 60's sourced keys and looping gridlocked riffs of mind expanding proportions; a blissed out frenzied fuzz laced tripping haze and bone rattling f**k you,a bludgeoned blues bastardisation spewed out by a tranced out Brian Jonestown Massacre amid an impenetrably squalling sonic wall feedback fisticuffs with a volatile 13th Floor Elevators"

"The only cult worth joining. Psychedleic tinitis inducingworld shaking sounds from a world where death and drugs and darkness are the only glimmer of light!"

"From the acid garage adrenaline rush of "Eyes" to the glorious waves of euphoric psyche bliss that is 'You are there in me' EP2 is undoubtedly the sound of a band creating really special music"

"These Nottingham based psychedelicists may well be the coolest thing in fuzz washed fringe parting chemical blues right at this very moment. Pissing in the same lysergic swamp as the likes of Black Angels and Brian Jonestown Massacre they craft out a deliciously hazily glazed mind blown tapestry of trip wiring third eye transcendentalism, indelibly treated with a vintage craftsmanship trademarked in the 60’s they’re working knowledge of the rudiments of psyche blues is second to none...the beatnik beauty of fuzz laced demo cut ‘YOU ARE THERE IN ME’ is causing all amount of wig flipped flashbacks in our gaff given it sounds like some shimmering shade adorned slice of mojo tooting kaleidoscopia dreamed up by a studio gathering of members from Spacemen 3, My Jealous God and a few rogue Weather Prophets. Consider yourselves warned" - LOSING TODAY .
