We’ve got something heavy here, man. The incarnation of Brooklyn, NY’s Naam manifests a signature brand of super-sonic and ultimately mesmerizing heavy psychedelia. Trance-like and punishing at times, this trio of psychonauts (John Bundy – bass, vocals / Ryan Lugar – guitar, vocals / Eli Pizzuto – drums) mold elements of classic psychedelia and prog with modern elements of jam-heavy bliss and apocalyptic amplitude. Naam’s self-titled debut is more so an aural-intoxicating odyssey than an album. Recorded on a 100-acre farm in upstate New York, Naam manages to capture an elemental sound, surfacing the hidden wisdoms of the forest and the fields while capturing the mysticism of the night sky. In its increasingly dark and sinister progression, the album depicts an unholy spiritual journey in the search for a higher plane of enlightenment. Naam delivers their deafening sermon to bring a new dawn for all civilization. The vast seas cannot drown Them, the darkest caverns cannot conceal Them, They will conquer insurmountable foes. They are war, They are peace, They are time and space, They are infinite, They are Naam. Naam's debut record came out in 2009 on Tee Pee Records. They are currently writing for their next 7" and record.
