Black Space Riders are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of psychedelic space rock and stoner metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Beyond Refugeem" which will be released as a joint effort between BSR and Cargo.
Electronic sounds with acoustic guitars start off the ep giving the music more of a 70's feeling while the psychedelic elements have a 60's vibe to them and once the drums start to kick in all of the musicla instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the solos and leads are done in more of a classic rock style.
When heavy riffs are added onto the recording they bring in the heaviness of stoner rock as well as making the songs sound more modern and the songs also mix in a great amount of space rock elements and when vocals are added onto the recording they are done in a clean singing fashion and some songs also bring in elements of ambient, drone, and post rock and they close the ep with a couple of remix tracks.
Black Space Riders plays a musical style that takes stoner metal, psychedelic, space rock and ambient and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Black Space Riders are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic space rock and stoner metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Freedom At First Sight' and "Starglue Sniffer". 8 out of 10.
