Writing and Recording[edit | edit source]

“Under Acid Hoof” is the band’s second full-length album. The album was recorded in 2019, mixed and mastered by Dionysis Dimitrakos of Descent Studios, who also worked with the band for their debut album back in 2017. Drums were recorded in Dope of Sound Studios in Athens.

"The album is a direct continuation of the band’s self-titled, debut full-length album, but darker, heavier, and fuzzier. Five Tracks of Doom, each one offering something unique to the Opus. It just gets heavier and heavier as you dwell deeper into the album."

The album art was designed by Branca Studio.The album was released by Heavy Psych Sounds Records January 24th, 2020.

"The father & son duo on guitars offer to the listener a horde of Iommi-style riffs with fuzzy melodies accompanied by doomy riffing, which is supported by wicked bass lines and heavy drumming. The clean mellow vocals add to the mix, and the occasional talk of witchcraft and mammoths can lead to a sublime, heavy experience."

“Under Acid Hoof without a doubt surpasses its predecessor in every way from a creative standpoint as well as production-wise, and we are really proud of the final product. We are also very excited and honored to be a part of the great Heavy Psych Sounds Records roster; it’s a dream come true. The response to the album up until now has been really positive, and we are grateful to all those who have supported us so far.”
