Deaf Proof – Brain Utopia Giveaway (2019)

Wake up you stoner dudes and dudettes! Grab your headphones and light ‘em up because DEAF PROOF from Freiburg, Germany is unleashing a monster of an album with “Brain Utopia”, distributed by Clostridium Records. This work is a no-brainer must-have for music fans, even for those whose brains tend to be mildly incapacitated at times.

Yes my friends, we are talking vintage, fuzzy, psychedelic, and indeed, excellent stoner material here. To say otherwise would require serious checking of the hearing, which is not a bad thing to do once in a while anyway.

The title track BRAIN UTOPIA immediately lets you know what you have gotten yourself into as it dives into a very strong and non-negotiable head banger riff. From there you are treated to an impressive 14 minute long experience that would best be accompanied by one of those mucho longo thingamajiggies. This song perfectly displays the DEAF PROOF sound and feeling with so many different passages for the listener to explore.
It all thrives along with a pounding intensity that does not let you go until it slowly dissolves into Trial & Error. At first it feels like an extended ending to BRAIN UTOPIA, but then it turns into its own standout piece with some really wicked sound. Do be cautious when listening to this song in rooms with low hanging lamps and freaky wallpaper.

Next up is THE AWAKENING, and if you haven’t woken up yet, you will now. This tune is just flat out awesome. Picking a favorite of these four new tracks isn’t easy, but for me, I think this is it. There is some amazing stuff in this song and there really is no way to do it justice with words. You just have to hear it to know what I am talking about.

The album then closes with DESERT MAN, and it is just as it should be with such a collection. It grabs you just as you are exhaling from the Awakening, and it gives you something that you can see yourself following for a nice long while. But instead of developing lengthy patterns like some of the other songs, the Desert Man decides to swiftly wander off into some far away landscape where things are most definitely groovy. Maybe in the next album we get to visit him.

If you don’t already know DEAF PROOF, there are a few other collections available that are certainly worth looking into. The EP “Death Sounds Angry” and the LP “Blood Red Sky Sessions” have both been released through Krauted Mind Records. Then there are the their two self-produced projects in conjunction one with Holistic Hobos (CD digipack) and one with Mount Hush (various crowd-funded vinyl editions) where there is much more grooviness to explore.

“Brain Utopia” was released as a limited vinyl and CD digipack on December 1 of this year with some really nicely designed cover art by Johannes Walenta. The CD version contains the bonus track “Everything Dead” from the Mount Hush Deaf Proof Interstellar Smoke Split album.

Be sure to check it out.
