We are happy to announce that the next tape in the Love Lion (LL3) roster is Portland, Oregon's Purple Rhinestone Eagle! Look for the cassette version of their Stank House Records release, The Great Return, due out in November/December.
Some review vibes:
"Portland, Oregon's Purple Rhinestone Eagle are carrying the torch and continuing the rich tradition of Black Sabbath-style metal that can be appreciated by all who have admired wizardry, gems and stones of all cuts and origins, and the gritty battle fields of the riff. This power trio wields heavy riffs, gnarly tones, and lyrics any Sleep fan can grab a hold of as they fold over into the under belly of a bong rip. Sludge Riffs + all female line-up + Crystal Worship + songs about burning down monoliths and empires = your new favorite album, The Great Return." Reckless Records
"Purple Rhinestone Eagle are the new soldiers of the feminist armageddon. The Great Return is the soundtrack generated from the explosion and the beautiful aftermath left in its wake. This Portland OR trio use a cornucopia of psych and metal influences and mix them together in a medieval cauldron, the result being a mastery of the psychedelkic craft and a fully realized collection of songs and rhythms celebrating the power and sensuality of woman or more importantly, humanity...This writer is not one to overemphasize gender but only a few sister bands like Quixotic, Lozen, and Afrirampo come close to the grandeur that PRE are able to conjure, but the Eagles spectrum of musicality stretch further than even most of their male counterparts." - Chris Sutton (Hornet Leg, Dub Narcotic Sound System, The Gossip)/Shotgun Seamstress Zine
