Blaak Heat (And it's previous incarnation Blaak Heat Shujaa) is a French-American outfit whose recordings blend psychedelic rock with a number of outside sources, such as traditional Middle Eastern music, progressive rock, surf rock, spaghetti western, and metal. The band was founded by Thomas Bellier in 2008 in Paris while he was a graduate student at Sciences Po.[1] The band would gain significant praise in the stoner rock scene for their eclectic blends and creative psychedelic sounds.

to date the band had released two albums and an EP under the name "Blaak Heat Shujaa" and one album and EP under their current incarnation "Blaak Heat", all while touring the world and even collaborating with the likes of Louisiana jazz musician Sonny Simmons and Louisville, Kentucky poet Ron Whitehead among others.
