“It’s Coming…” ensures a trippy sonic experience as the moody guitar phrases flow like a colorful daydream channeling peaceful vibes while the rhythmic section keeps a steady charismatic stoner rock core enriched by the insanely intricate psychedelic arrangements. 

“Citadel On A Satellite” offers some elaborate heavier rhythmic patterns that highlight the presence of the monolithic guitar riffs and the untamed leads yet the psychedelic soul is often bound to prevail generating slower hazy melodic progressions.

The lengthy final track “Lions, Tigers And Bears” symbolizes the band’s sonic manifesto offering intense guitar driven grooves that channel colossal stoner rock vibes while the guitars and synths ultimately embrace a major psychedelic essence that could make you space out forever beyond time and space.  

You will feel immediately compelled to join the cosmic journey embodied by the edgy psychedelic stoner rock grooves of “Ummon” as Slift successfully showcase great passion and unrestrained creative force.
