Grails - Doomsdayer's Holiday (2008)

Heavy, ritualistic psych from Portland, OR. I'm not fluent in international folk music, so forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think I'm hearing some Japanese influence, as well as a bit of Indian. Middle Eastern, maybe? Goddamn I suck. Regardless, this is highly advanced music and you need it in your life.

Track listing:
1. Doomsdayer's Holiday
2. Reincarnation Blues
3. The Natural Man
4. Immediate Mate
5. Predestination Blues
6. X-Contaminations
7. Acid Rain

Stoned at the Taj again

King Black Acid -
Wombstar Session (1995)
Kaada & Patton -
Romances (2004)


  1. oooo thanks, been looking for this one..

  2. excerpt from their Bandcamp page, bio info:

    ""But Doomsdayer's Holiday finds their already-broad palette continually expanding with 70s European film noir and cosmic free jazz explorations complimenting the Middle Eastern psychedelic folk-metal the group is already known for. After a wildly prolific three-year streak that saw the band ceaselessly pushing forward, Grails have finally made an album that pushes back.""

    1. Haha, thanks. I got the Middle Eastern part right, anyway.
