Biography

Black Mountain's Year Zero soundtrack is nothing less than the band's full, balls-out glory distilled down to one dense, 45-minute acid tab of music. Featuring five new songs and five previously released songs, the Year Zero soundtrack weaves crunching, analog psych metal; futuristic droneouts; and, somehow, a twisted saxaphone ditty.

So how on earth does a band like Black ... Read more in Amazon's Black Mountain Store

5.0 out of 5 stars California Dreaming 6 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
8 tracks all written by BM's main man Stephen McBean. This album keeps you listening from start to finish. BM are not like any other band and each song on this classic is different, despite the anti- war, anti- pop music thread that runs, so 'tongue in cheek ', through the whole album.
The album starts with Modern Music. cleaver and witty, it reminds me of Gong during the early 70's with some fine saxaphone from Masa Anza.
Don't Run Our Hearts Around. A guitar epic with shades of Black Sabbath and a delightful backing vocal from Amber Webber who reminds me of Gong's female vocalist Bombaloni Yoni.
Druganaut is one of the weeker track but contains some excellent Cozy Powell style drumming supporting some very good 60's early 70's style guitar work from McBean and Co.
Next up is No Satisfaction " Put a flower in your hair hold hands and clang around. Everybody likes to clang around". If you can't tap your foot to this, rigor mortis has surely set in.
Track 5, Set Us Free. BM get serious and political. Worthy of a place along side the best 60/70's anti Vietnam protest songs.
Three quarters of the way through now and your thinking it's like no other album in your collection but like your first pint of beer you're not sure, however you get the feeling it will grow on you.
Track 6,No Hits. Hawkwind Synth effects held together with a Lemmy style bass riff and lyrics suggesting the bands dislike for pop stars, their music and commercial radio.
The penultimate song is Heart Of Snow and the good sounds just keep on comimg. Finally a Jah Wobble (PIL) bass riff keeps the last track, Faulty Time, tightly rapped in a general dislike for foreign policy that favours invading other countries.
Can't wait for the next BM offering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suits the heatwave perfectly 20 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I can't be done writing a long rambling heavy worded ode to this great album.

It's damn hot in my office. This album is on my headphones and it's prefect.

The up tempo tracks have got my flip flopped feet tapping away under my desk in the breeze of a carefully positioned fan. Traces of the Stones, VU sprinkled all over these ones. No Satisfaction, Modern Music, Druganaut.

The lengthier tracks have a sugarcubed dose of Neil Young, Sabbath and 70's Pink Floyd trinkling down their throats. Space to breathe, expand, wander around the mountains then back home to roost.

Get some sunshine, get this album, a beer and joint wouldn't go amiss, whack it up, take your time with it and take it all in.

Their off shoot band The Pink Mountaintops 'Axis Of Evol' is another essential as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars One I've gone back to 9 Jan 2008
By Big Jim TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album some time and didn't like it first time around. The style was a bit wacky/psychedelic for me and with the female singer's vocals well up in the mix, they sounded like a heavy (very heavy at times) Magic Numbers.
Having read some rave reviews of their new album (not yet released) I thought I'd give this one another go and lo and behold it has worked its magic (sic) on me and won me over, so much so that is playing even now as I type.
Reviews below go into much greater detail than I am willing to do so suffice to say, for me, this was not one of those albums that hit you straight between the eyes, but is a definite "grower".

5.0 out of 5 stars Why the Americans are so bloody good at this... 18 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Black Mountain are a hard rock band from Vancouver, Canada, and this debut album is a consistent 60s-styled masterpeice. Combining Black Sabbath slow-core guitars and Queens of the Stone Age quirkiness with Kings of Leon-now-featuring-Janis Joplin vocals, the end product is altogether trippy, druggy, warped, and driving enough to rival influences both old (Sabbath, Canned Heat, Cream, Joplin) and new (QOTSA, Husker Du, Lightning Bolt, Kings of Leon). But what really sets the album apart is the spirit and feeling for the music; Black Mountain are not sleep-walking through a 60s re-creation, they are bringing forward something wholly new and unique, and entirely North American.
