Lamp Of The Universe - As We Unfold In The Skies

Lamp Of the Universe is the solo project of Craig Williamson from New Zealand (we may remember him because he was bassist and vocalist in the group "Datura"). It is a formidable modern mix of pysch "raga" folk with spacey rock elements. In its great variety the music offers astonishing acoustic guitar parts, exotic sitar "raga" scales, "tabla" percussions and "acid" heavy, bluesy rock guitars. Minimal "drone" bass lines alternate with fuzzy, sometimes aggressive psychedelic waves. This rather "cosmic" musical ensemble is without moderation a nice discover. It is a must for fans of Amon Duul II, Pink Floyd and classical raga style. The combination between the genres is well defined, providing a freak out journey throw eastern vibes.

Discography: The Cosmic Union (2001), Echo in Light (2002), Heru (2005), Earth, Spirit & Sky (2005), From The Mystic Rays Of Astrological Light (2006), Arc Of Ascent (2007), Acid Mantra (2009), Transcendence (2013)...

In the following audio we enjoy a very nice song. It has the title "As We Unfold In The Skies"...
