His Masters Voice: Save My Soul EP

‘Possession’  is the product of the psychedelic melting pot of influences that is His Masters Voice. Hailing from Auckland, the four-piece has carved a loyal following in the two years they have been together, and show no sign of relenting. The Ep’s opening title track is as much as Black Sabbath as it is blues. Drummer Rene Harvey‘s bludgeoning approach on Don’t Trust Myself  lifts the energy levels that tease what they are capable of live. Diversity and groove are the keys to the recording’s success and the bands uniqueness is in their disregard of convention. While His Masters Voice has harvested a classic sound, Follow Me Down dishes up a modern flavour that could comfortably stack up next to modern icons such as Black Stone Cherry or Mastodon. Bonus live track Lucid Dream is a weighty eight minute insight into what the band are all about.
