Spaceaxers

by Nightosaur

Spaceaxers is the second album from Nightosaur, and is heavier, weirder, and even more epic than the first. Hear tales of a world clinging to the edge of madness, with dynamite sludge and dual-guitar hooks big enough to hang a side of T-Rex.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Spaceaxers is the second full length album from Minneapolis metal band Nightosaur. Featuring seven all new songs, this release is heavier, weirder, and even more epic than 2011’s debut, Black Blood of the Earth. With duelling lead guitars and an explosive rhythm section, Nightosaur draws inspiration from the prog-blues metal of early Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, the taut ferocity of Dio and Iron Maiden, and the brutal force of today’s sludgiest stoners. Spaceaxers expands on these roots and spins epic tales of a world on the edge of madness, with hooks big enough to hang a side of T-Rex. Recorded and mixed in four days in a South Minneapolis duplex, Spaceaxers manages to capture the intensity of Nightosaur’s relentless live show. Within are epic stories of doomed polar explorers, lost love avenged, and salvation by fire from the stars. The album’s centerpiece “There May Be Dragons” is a thunderous rallying cry to embrace the monsters within us all, and to join Nightosaur in their conquest of all that is heavy.

Here's what the press has to say:

"[Nightosaur] remember that rock 'n' roll is supposed to be fun. In the hype-driven web press world, where bloggers are racing to predict the next big thing, Nightosaur give you that old-fashioned belly-fire enthusiasm."
http://digitalissue.citypages.com/publication/?i=85892&p=18

"a thick, meaty slab of prog-metal delivered with maximum levels of gusto, touching down both in the fun, over the top side of the spectrum and scratching that “wildly technically proficient” itch that seems to be a prominent fixture on metal fans."
http://www.reviler.org/2012/06/14/stream-nightosaur-spaceaxers/

"an epic journey through space and time; and you’re probably going to be sweaty by the end."
http://mplsmusic.com/news/nightosaur-spaceaxers/

"the band oozes rock ’n’ spirit."

"these guys aren't kidding around"
