In Supersonic Space Rock in its own field. This band wears its influences well, but also creates its own cosmos within the genre to somewhat create a sub genre whatever that would be called. Faflung has now become Americas legendary cult Space Rock band with 6 LPs under the belt, and stellar voyages near and afar.
The name of this Italian band from Rome, Black Land, may suggest a connection with harsh goat-worshippers or some depressive black metal act. Not really.
The band is vehicle of much sinful music, of course, but as you can guess by the above "Extreme Heavy Psych" cover art , these guys are devoted to chemistry more than to the black religion!
The main influences for Black Land are obvious and recognized in their tunes: especially Pentagram, Saint Vitus, Black Sabbath, Cathedral, Electric Wizard, but also Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Orange Goblin, Monster Magnet, Spiritual Beggars, Nebula, not to forget bands such as Motorhead and Type ONegative and the heavy psych hard rock of the 70s, krautrock and space rock.
Undoubtely the bands guys are also inspired by the gloomy atmospheres created by the Italian proto-doom and doom bands like Paul Chain, Abysmal Grief, etc. even if the atmospheres in Black Lands tunes are less oppressive and softened by the passion for psychedelics and stoner rock.
