Jupiter Zeus-On Earth

I've been getting a lot of good stuff from Western Australia lately and Jupiter Zeus is the latest from a triumphant breed. Their new record On Earth is a testament to the enduring power of space rock in its modern context. On Earth creates simple yet vast soundscapes that bring in the listener and show that you don't have to be old to be wise. These eleven tracks contain more power than most bands can put together in years of work. This is the kind of record that will get people talking for years, filled with poignant riffs that don't just make music but touch on the human condition.

The thing is, Jupiter Zeus are the kind of band who really have no true peer. Their approach to their music is distinct, their attack powerful and the riff style direct. Jupiter Zeus are not just a very stoned group of space rockers, they are artists, men who grasp the significance and beauty of their craft. The power behind the vocals is incredible and brings the entire sound around a powerful and distinct formation. The guitar parts are also fully engaging. I really dig the way the songs are structured, soaring and swooping from one ear to the other, showing the eternal magic of this bands music. It goes beyond the triumph of bands like Soundgarden and into a realm all of their own.

Let's just say, Magnetic Earth Records have done good in signing this band. Their innovative sound combines a variety of old school giants into something fresh and exciting. It fits perfectly within the modern rock context yet gives a distinct and fresh vibe. Not a lot of bands have the sheer promise that Jupiter Zeus do and I'm excited to see that their fan base is rapidly rising. Prepare yourselves my brethren for one of the most promising and destructive rock bands to come up in recent years. The perfect fusion of Sabbath, Soundgarden and Led Zeppelin this is the new generation of rock and rolls triumph.
