ARGONAUTA Records welcomes Heavy Instrumental Stoner Rockers EPHEDRA from Switzerland in its roster!
The four Heavy Rockers from Zofingen (CH), have their musical roots all over the place, reaching from Stoner Rock, Metal, Hardcore Punk to Death Metal.
If you hear the band’s music for the first time, you’ll notice the different influences moving along between dreamy Space melodies & the Sound of a Tractor refueled with Kerosene! For a final result the press already described as a perfect blend of KARMA TO BURN meet DOZER.
The band says: “We are stoked & excited to be Part of the Argonauta Records family. This is a huge landmark in the history of EPHEDRA & will hopefully spread the band’s name all over the place. “
Founded in 2012 by Bass player Kilian & Drummer Tomi to have a fun project that should go in the direction of Kyuss, Karma to Burn & Monster Magnet, they went through some lineup changes in their early days before completing their current lineup with the 2 guitarist Andy & Roman in 2013.
Their self-titled debut “Ephedra” was released in Aug 2013 and available here.
Being asked to support the Midnight Ghost Train, this show changed the Bands spirit forever. They knew now that they wanted to play as many shows as possible. Over the past 2 years they played in Germany, Poland, Austria & Switzerland. Shared stages with bands such as Electric Wizard, Truckfighters, Yawning Man, Monkey 3, 1000 Mods, Karma To Burn, Sasquatch, Elder, Greenleaf, The Midnight Ghost Train, Goatess & Pentagram.
Ephedra went back into the Studio at the Foolpark Studios, Luzern, to record their second Album “Can’- Ka No Rey”, which is named after a place in Stephen King’s Fantasy Saga “The Dark Tower”, and will be released on CD/DD by ARGONAUTA Records by January 30th 2017.
