Just came out today.
I got the email from Bandcamp about this. It's been too long since I've thought about Cloudkicker, so this was a lovely reminder of the excellence that is Ben Sharp.
Also, that album art is dope.
Love the album art, been forever since I've listened to Cloudkicker. Thanks for this.
There's gonna be a physical release of this.
Love the art.
Still need to listen to it.
I've been a fan of Ben's since The Discovery.
I dig the album. Realistically there's only 3 heavy tracks (Xaoc/Blackbird and Void) but I'm fine with it. The balance between that crushing wall of sound and delay laden post-rock guitar riffs that linger in the air feels just right imo.
This guy, this freakin guy. He didn't even tease it or anything, just drops it as a wonderful Friday surprise. Cloudkicker rocks!
Oh hell yeah.
Got the email for this yesterday and am suuuper excited. Every time I get a Cloudkicker update from Bandcamp is like Xmas. He tricked me a few months ago when he consolidated a couple of his older works into single releases for easier book-keeping.
Definitely gonna get that physical release.
The first big riff in Xaoc has me grinning like an idiot. Cloudkicker songs are always such inspiring adventures, this is making me want the day to go by quickly so I can go home and record stuff too.
Blackwing opens up the same way, such freaking cool and melodic riffs.
whaaaat!??? where's my email!?? thx 7S.org!
sooo glad I got to see him live.... maybe again????
This. This is the new Tool album we all wanted. I rarely buy music anymore, but I’m getting this one today.
Any news on when the physical release will drop?
He posted on IG that it will be the end of the year... I assume Q4
Just purchased, looking forward to the physical release
This new record is FIRE!! Feels derivative of Beacons. I hope everyone takes a moment to donate to Ben's hard work!
One of the best experiences ever will be seeing Cloudkicker live while tripping my balls off.
That is so sexy. I wonder what he will tune it to. The fact that it's baritone makes me think lower than his usual tuning.
His usual tuning is Drop B, he might just want a tighter tone in that tuning? He's been recording everything on a Les Paul iirc, except for the earliest stuff that was on an Ibanez... SA, I think.
Either way that guitar is the bomb
Forgot about Cloudkicker. Amazing stuff!
Yeah, he was using the Les Paul when I saw him live as well.
