Formed in 2004 on the ashes of a band called Jerk with a Bomb by Stephen McBean (guitars) and drummer Joshua Wells, Black Mountain quickly gained attention not only from music fans but also from labels, deeply interested in this crazy mix of psycho-stoner rock influenced by bands like Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd.
Since, the band has released 4 acclaimed albums in particular 2010 Wilderness Heart which was nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, (Canadian version of the english Mercury Prize).
This year, the band released IV , their very last album. An album that McBean first wanted to call Our strongest material to date , as he was so proud of it. Mesmerizing, haunting, exiting, enhanced by the enchanting voice of Amber Webber, this new album contains epic tracks like Mothers of the sun , the song that opens the album (more than 8 minutes long) or Space to Bakersfield , the 9’ final track.
For fans of Blues Pills, Wolfmother or Monster Truck.
