LIVE ON STAGE:
Ananda Mida is a stoner and psychedelic rock collective led by Max Ear (drummer of OJM and art director of Go Down Records) and Matteo Pablo Scolaro. Since the beginning of the project, graphic representation has played a crucial role thanks to the valuable collaboration with visual artist eeviac. Since 2015, they have been performing in different line-ups, from three to six members, either instrumental or with singers. Their sound is inspired by 70s rock, mixed with desert and psychedelic grooves.
In 2015, they debuted with the double-sided 7-inch Aktavas/Passavas, which gave rise to the band's mythology, developed from some fragments of enigmatic teachings. In autumn 2016 they released their first full-length album Anodnatius, co-produced by Go Down Records and Vincebus Eruptum Recordings. It reminds us of all the positive forces and light vibrations that are inside and outside of everything and everyone. In January 2019, the second chapter Cathodnatius was released, describing all the opposing forces and obscure vibrations we live in today. The album, featuring Conny Ochs on vocals, was released via Go Down and Vincebus Eruptum on vinyl, CD and digital. In June 2021, the band will release the live EP Karnak on a deluxe picture back disc with a special appearance by desert rock icon Mario Lalli on guitar. November 2023 will see the release of their third work, which will conclude the trilogy "mythologically".
HUMULUS are a psych-stoner power trio from Bergamo, northern Italy and active in the international stoner rock scene since 2009. After several albums and EPs, HUMULUS will release their fourth album "The Deep" in February 2020. The album length of 50 minutes with only 6 songs is a clear sign of where the journey is heading. HUMULUS speciality are the ell-long, hypnotic stoner jams, which they mature in lonely jam sessions in the rehearsal room. The constrast forms of expression of the likeable trio range from fuzzy-rocky, to barrel-chested-doomy, to psychedelic-spacy. The three musicians, whose band name is the Latin word for hops, also have a passion for brewing beer: Since 2014, HUMULUS have been lovingly brewing their own beer, a dark "Stoner IPA", which they also bring along on tour!
