Full Length Review: TRANSNADEŽNOST' Monomyth (Nologo Noname Records) by James K. Blaylock

Place of origin: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Genre: Psychedelic, progressive stoner rock
Full length: Monomyth
Release date: September 23, 2018
From the first few twangs on the guitar I was hooked on the hypnotically lush soundscapes of Transnadežnost'. Monomyth is so much more than psychedelic stoner rock n roll, as it draws the listener deeper into its vortex of pleasantly penetrating noise. It feels like an epic undertaking unfolding before our very ears, plus, you don’t have to be high to partake on this journey. Although, some may still choose to do so. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a whole lotta back information on this band, this doesn’t really take away from their awesomeness. In fact I listened to the CD so much on band camp that I wasn’t allowed to listen any longer without paying - I guess that’s saying something for them. Or maybe that’s just saying something about me... either way check these guys out... you’ll be glad you did. Maybe you’ll do like I did and wear out your welcome, that’s just a joke. Anyways, enjoy. There you have it: the good, the bad and the ugly. -James K. Blaylock
