Church Of The Cosmic Skull - Science Fiction (CD)
Church of the Cosmic Skull release their second studio album 'Science Fiction' on limited edition heavyweight vinyl and CD.
Described as 'Occult Pop' for fans of ELO, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac and Queen, the 9 track record from the Nottingham based 'spiritual organisation' sees an expansion on the prog / psych / retro stylings and hook-heavy songwriting of the critically acclaimed debut 'Is Satan Real?' (2016 Bilocation Records. ★★★★ - MOJO). Piano and vintage synths have been introduced alongside the Hammond organ, electric cello and six-part vocal harmonies, resulting in a sound that truly 'puts the ABBA in Sabbath'.
The decision to self-produce the release is a reflection of both the changing landscape of the music industry, and the Church's wholeheartedly DIY approach, having turned down major label offers in favour of maintaining independence. Quoting one of the '7 Objects', Church founder Bill Fisher describes the record as a chance to 'Celebrate and uphold the freedom of art, science and thought.'
