Osaka based psych-rock three piece Hibushibire return after a long break, with a new line up and a stunning third album. Following the successes of their debut album 'Freak Out Orgasm!' (2017), the follow up 'Turn On, Tune In, Freak Out' (2019) and two very well received UK tours. The band headed home to Osaka, Japan and then, the pandemic hit. During this downtime, guitarist/vocalist Changchang decided to create a new power trio. Enter Tetsuji Toyoda (bass/vocals) and Aoi Hama (drums/vocals). The new trio have spent the last three years writing new music, playing live and honing their sound in Japan, and a short well received tour of Taiwan with Riot Season labelmates Dope Purple. And now finally, Hibushibire mark 2 is born properly. "Hibushibire has returned after a change of members. A psychedelic, progressive work, suitable for a new beginning." Entering the studio with Acid Mothers Temple/Mainliner guru Makoto Kawabata in the producer chair (and also as a guest musician) once again, the band recorded album number three, 'Magical Metamorphosis Third Eye.' Makoto also adds some of his own trademark guitar howls through out the album, perfectly complimenting Changchang's own growing prowess. Here the band have taken their trademark psych-rock blasts and blended them perfectly with some more trippy, dare I say sweet progressive psychedelic sounds. "The idea of this album is based on the theme of "occultism and mysticism." But it's not a serious thing, it's about the things we like (UFOs, pyramids, psychic phenomena, shamanism etc) and we all had fun while making it. In terms of what makes it different from the previous Hibushibire albums, it's where Aoi Hama's vocals are present. I had wanted to use a female vocalist for a long time, so it was a good feeling!" Like the band's first two albums, 'Magical Metamorphosis Third Eye' is very much an album of two halves. Side one again is full of killer shorter tracks, while side two is reserved for a blinding majestic 20 minute epic 'Ayahuasca Witch Abduction.' Perhaps the biggest musical surprise here though is probably track two, the beautifully mellow tripped out 'We Won't Go Back To The Past,' which sounds like it's been beamed straight out of the late '60s/early '70s. The band also tip a nod to the Beatles psychedelic classic 'Tomorrow Never Ever Knows,' but with their own twist of course. It's clear with the line up changes, Changchang has decided to expand the band's musical pathway, and he's achieved stunning results. Japanese made CD in card sleeve.
