Biography

Black Mountain's Year Zero soundtrack is nothing less than the band's full, balls-out glory distilled down to one dense, 45-minute acid tab of music. Featuring five new songs and five previously released songs, the Year Zero soundtrack weaves crunching, analog psych metal; futuristic droneouts; and, somehow, a twisted saxaphone ditty.

So how on earth does a band like Black ... Read more in Amazon's Black Mountain Store

Editorial Reviews

Limited deluxe two CD edition of this 2008 sophomore album from the Psych-and-Prog-spiritual pioneers featuring a bonus CD that contains three additional tracks. It resonates with the same epic ring, beloved deep Rock touchstones, and genuine Folk fragility that made their self-titled debut an instant classic. In The Future possesses immense breadth, seamlessly showcasing short and classic Folk-Pop gems along with driving modern Rock masterpieces, peaking with 'Bright Lights', a 17-minute multi-dimensional opus that gives Pink Floyd's 'Echoes' a run for its money.

Customer Reviews

This band has a male and female singer, though most of the songs are written by the band's leader, Stephen Mcbean.

I would recommend to anyone looking to buy this album just to head on over to YouTube and listen to "Tyrants," "Wucan," or "Queens Will Play."
R. Reining
It took a couple of listens to really appreciate what they were trying to do, and as a musician, I love the production.

Format: Audio CD
Black Mountain exists in a swirl of heavy, grimy, vaguely psychedelic hard-rock, redolent of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin (with maybe a touch of the Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd).

And the band is in fine shape in their sophomore album "In The Future" -- they introduce some new musical twists, while still keeping their signature sound. It's a powerful, intense collection of hard-rockers, but with a few softer songs sprinkled in to show their range.

It opens with a grimy riff, a dark stomping bassline, and some smashing drums -- and for a minute, the appropriately-named "Stormy High" whips itself into a barely-restrained frenzy. When Stephen McBean's wailing vocals join the mix, the song straightens out into a solid, intense rocker that blasts its way down, reeking of classic rock concerts and apocalyptic fury.

Having reeled you in, Black Mountain turns out the bluesy "Angels," with McBean lamenting, "Come on, lay your head on down/angels, lay your arms around/every city's singing saddened songs...." And that quieter song is echoed in some of the others -- mournful folkiness, haunting fuzzy songs, or the ethereal closing lament "Night Walks."

But they haven't abandoned the harder music, thankfully. This is where their real power erupts out -- simmering hard-rock, gritty psychedelica wound with synth, stormy twisting electro-metal, and the penultimate song -- a seventeen-minute epic journey through explosive hard-rock, solemn organ instrumentals, and an earsplitting finale.

Whoo. What a ride. It's been only three years since Black Mountain came out with their self-titled album and EP -- it was great music, but still raw and unformed.

After a couple of listens to this record the songs seem to grow on you.
The record has a sound like it was taken from the earlier 70's and remastered.Check out the GRACE SLICK like vocals and the Black Sabbath pulsing guitar riffs. Throw in some underlying Pink Floyd, mix a little Zepplin in, and you have a pretty good record.
All in all,this band will take you right back to the seventies, with a littke bit of today's studio tricks.
Looking forward to their next release!!!

I heard this yesterday at the local record store and immediately grabbed it. This is one of those rare gems you infrequently get turned on to. Just one more reason to lament the demise of CD stores in favor of online downloading, eh? For everyone over 50, picture this: What if Grace Slick had been the lead singer of 70s era King Crimson? Great stuff!! A truly unique mixture of influences. Like the retro synth, B3 and acoustic sounds!!

Great CD. Thundering drums, interesting and varied song arrangements. If you like led Zeppelin's song "no quarter" this CD is for you. Heavy, dark and ominous psych rock at its best.

WOW!!!!!Sweet Baby Jesus!!!!!!!! THANK GOD Rock and Roll is still alive. This is a very good CD but, with all due respect, they're no Black Sabbath or Pink Floyd. They sound more like a the Jefferson Starship meet Patti Smith. They would be extremely at home in the late 60s as their music has that West Coast psychedelic flavor. This is very groovy, simple(musically and lyrically) but multidimensional sonic fair. No two songs sound the same, but the entire CD flows so well that it has a psychedelic feel when listened to in it's entirety. The whole CD is good but the songs Night Walks, Queens Will Play and Bright Lights KILLLLLLLLLL!!!! Amber Webber has the voice of a GODDESS!!! But, if you're into Black Sabbath (heavy/doom metal) you'll be wondering why, of all bands, they're comparing Black Mountain with them. But if you're into late 60s psychedelic rock, you'll LOVE this CD.
