Hidden Masters



Hidden Masters – Of This & Other Worlds (Metal Blade)

Oh man! I wanted this so much to be metal. I kept listening and hoping for them to jump into some stonery, doomy, sludgy action, but instead they stuck with a mix of Beatles, the 5th Dimension with a little of The Doors.

I wanted some hint of Ghost-ly evil Satanism at least , but instead they “let the sunshine in.” Still, I dare you to play Into the Night Sky.

MORE ABOUT HIDDEN MASTERS

Their first 7″, ‘Nobody Knows That We’re Here‘ was described by SHINDIG! magazine as “the most important psych-pop ’45 to come out of these fair isles for the past 30-something years”.

Debut album, Of This and Other Worlds is a true revelation. Defying genre imprisonment of any kind, Hidden Masters have ingeniously created their own world of mind bending musical ecclecticism, avoiding any notions of pastiche. Whilst there is a strong leaning towards 60’s pop and psych moves, the overall vibe is one that is vital, fresh and visionary.

Since their emergence at the turn of the decade, Glasgow-based trio Hidden Masters have been catching ears and turning heads with their dynamic ensemble sound, lush three-part vocal harmonies and a highly original and idiosyncratic fusion of musical styles, running the gauntlet from Rock’n’Roll to pop, West Coast Psych rock to Gospel and Folk to mind melting Vertigo-era prog, often all within one song, and positively aglow with melody, movement and imagination.

Their electrifying live shows offer the audience a one-stop intravenous blast of hedonistic joy, involving carnal flailing of limbs, euphoric wow-impulse neural stimulation and unprecedented levels of perspiration.
