cvltcorgi888 Holy shit -- well done, mates. Brits still call each other mate, yeah? Semantics, am I right folks?

Seriously, this band fuckin' rips. You can hear so many influences throughout this hazy, magical ride: blues, stoner, doom, sludge, and even a little post-metal; yet all of it coalesces cohesively into a crunchy and energetic romp of rock/metal. Favorite track: Diesel Breath.

remco van hattum This is the first time i heard of Sergeant Thunderhoof and the album sure doesn't disappoint a second. Good and heavy riffs, enough variety and love the vocal part. However the instrumental song B Oscillation, proves they are instrumentally as good as with vocals. The whole album is damn good starting with the opening track to the last track. Sound quality is also very good. Time for me to discover their previous work. Favorite track: Another Plane.

about

The third studio album from Somerset based psychedelic rockers Sergeant Thunderhoof.

“Barely tamed, extremely hallucinogenic and beautifully overloaded all round, this lysergic rollercoaster shows that the underground cottage industry is alive and kicking. 8/10” Classic Rock Magazine

“Sergeant Thunderhoof have a sound all of their own, and it is the sound of musical genius. 10/10”. Powerplay Magazine

“What immediately grabs you is the way this band hold themselves, the whole album feels and sounds totally in control, this is a band that knows exactly where they are going, and it sounds accomplished and polished throughout.”. Dancing About Architecture

“Terra Solus is an absolute killer of an album from beginning to end.” Taste Nation

“if you are familiar with their past work you will know to expect plenty of addictive grooviness, raucous riffage and hazy psychedelics all executed with a breath-taking level of musicianship and outstanding display of vocal dynamics and Terra Solus does not disappoint in any of those departments.” Doom Charts

“Like Kyuss before them, they refuse to be pigeonholed into a single sound, delivering varied, impeccably composed songs that always come back to the riffs, but don't live or die by them.” Metal Bandcamp

"It didn’t take long for this one to make its way to one of my most played albums this year. An album I keep coming back to for their impressive sound which is taking the right bits and pieces from our fuzzy scene.” More Fuzz

“a wildly ambitious and brilliant album. 8/10” Insomnia Club

“Sergeant Thunderhoof's unparalleled synthesis of Sabbathian grooves, transcendental psychedelia, and unpredictable hooky flair make them more than just a stoner rock band. Sergeant Thunderhoof is definitely one of the most original sounding entities out there right now and I hope that they will continue to impress us with their mercurial brand of heavy rock for years to come.” Moanineggnog

“Sergeant Thunderhoof just keep getting better with each release. Enter Terra Solus, the band's third studio album... and it looks like we've got another slab of Iommic riffs, soaring vocals and ripping solos to look forward to. Honing their craft with each new album seems to be second nature for vocalist Dan Flitcroft and company. Terra Solus is no different in this regard and would fit nicely in any record collection right next to any Dio-era Sabbath records (as a fan of Dio, I mean this in a good way!).” Doom Wizard Dungeon

“Eight killer tracks of heavy psyched out stoner perfection with sprinkles of metal, doom, and space rock throughout. This is the Bath, UK bands third studio album and it is delivered stunningly. The execution and recording are flawless and the songs are some of the strongest I have heard in a while.” Outlaws of the Sun

Track Name: Another Plane
The sun is rising in the East, beating me down like a beast.
Blistered hands to shield my eyes.
This is where I’m going to die.

She’s made of metal, are you entertained?
The world will crumble in a sea of pain.

No water no essence of life, the cosmic winds have made me blind.
Where does my God reside, now heaven’s gates are open wide?

She’s made of metal, are you entertained?
The world will crumble in a sea of pain.

How many days and nights have passed since water touched my lips last?
Something keeps me moving on. I’ll spit in to the devil sun.

She’s made of metal, are you entertained?
The world will crumble in a sea of pain.
It’s all so real, won’t you play the game?
We must assemble on another plain.
Track Name: Stellar Gate Drive
I believe the time is right to leave this holy place behind.
Ditch the regrets, swallow bitterness, ain’t no room for junk or jive.
Brothers in the back seat, Lord what’s ahead of me?
One-way ticket to ride.
The blood’s pumping up my throat, leave it alone, this one’s for love.

Thousand miles a second, breaking through the barrier.
Sands of reality die.
Cranking up the throttle, reaching for the bottle, drink until the well is dry.
You must reach the source to understand the reasons why.
Never gonna let this go, it’s a matter of flow. It’s all in your mind.

Whoa, this man’s that way inclined.
Whoa, two suns, your worlds collide.
Whoa, four words to claim a life.
Whoa, down the stellar gate drive.

Gravity is locked down, dreams begin to melt down, a mist that’s the colour of grey.
Mushroom in the mouth, paralysed and down.
The night becomes an endless day.
Our friends stand alone in a place that knows no other way.
I pay no heed to time, it’s all in your mind, it’s where I’ll stay.

Whoa, this man’s that way inclined.
Whoa, two suns, your worlds collide.
Whoa, four words to claim a life.
Whoa, down the stellar gate drive.

Raise your body to the sun.
Angels fear us, their masters run.
The truth is with you, we’ve paid the purse.
A mighty thunder, say the words, yeah!

This man’s that way inclined.
Whoa, two suns, your worlds collide.
Whoa, four words to claim a life. Whoa!
Track Name: The Tree And The Serpent
A call to the Mother, mistress of the fall.
A strange taste of other visions from another world.
So, I look for my Father, I’m scared and all alone, alone.

The steam and the sulphur rising from a distant hole.
The tree and the serpent beckoning another whore.
So, I call to my Father “When will you return?”.

It’s the dawn of a future already told.
And he holds on to the answers in a void.

Fog in the distance, a tower made of stone.
The words that guide us promise of a life reborn.
So, I pray for my Brother whose face I can’t recall.

It’s the dawn of a future already told.
And he holds on to the answers in a void.

I dream of thunder, I dream of rain and snow
I grieve for Lunar, forever etched in stone.
The journey we’ve taken is a sea of death and blood.

It’s the dawn of a future already told.
And he holds on to the answers in a void.
Track Name: B Oscillation
(instrumental)
Track Name: Diesel Breath
It’s a long savage road.
There’s a fear pulling you down to the ground by your throat.
And you’re so consumed with lust, with your eyes locked on the prize of somebody else’s love.

Take your foot of the gas, lets take it slow.
You’ve got your woman, is that not enough

In your palm you will find a simple choice, you ought to know
It’s jealousy you hide in a cold you call your home.

Take your foot of the gas, let’s take it slow.
You’ve got your woman, is that not enough?
Take your foot of the gas my friend and breathe in slow.
You gotta damn fine woman, open your soul!

We have cracked the human code, in your prayers you’ve gotta know.
It’s an ancient fair ground when your life turns to pride, oh you know.

Take your foot of the gas, let’s take it slow.
You’ve got your woman, is that not enough?
Take your foot of the gas my friend and breathe in slow.
You gotta damn fine woman, open your soul!

Open your heart to the sky and pray.
And give your lady all the love you can, I beg you.
Unleash the power in your veins.
And pull your lover close and feel the breath inside you.

Soon we’re alone with the stars above you.
And your heart yearns for more.
It’s just your pride taking over.
Soon we’re alone with the stars above you.
And your heart yearns for more.
It’s just your pride taking over.
Soon we’re alone with the stars above you.
And your heart yearns for more.
It’s just your pride taking over.
Track Name: Priestess Of Misery
A figure alone in the dying light and the fires have ceased to burn.
Lit by the power of human sight now the wheels are beginning to turn.
And the storm is allowed to fade to show the path to crawl.

The sooner we sail out inside.
You’ll feel it, a sign.

Wind swept, heavenly.
Priestess of misery.

A woman alone, it’s a cold grey light and she shines like I’ve never known.
The blood creeps up in to my throat with a feeling that’s not my own.
It’s a long, long way down.
So, we turn this tale around.

The sooner we sail out inside.
You’ll feel it, a sign.

Wind swept, heavenly.
Priestess of misery.

Wind swept, heavenly.
Priestess of misery.
Freedom is fallacy.
Sorrow, reality.

We started alone, fire!
Alone in the world, Sister.
We started alone, fire!
We started alone, fire!
Track Name: Half A Man
Shooting streams of colour, filtering the noise.
Glimpses of the reflection staring back at me.
Showering the starlight, a veil so thin and so bright.
Hate just becomes a word, no meaning, no force.

If I was strong I could be a man.
Holding your hand for all.
I’d face the world alone, I’d build on your walls.
But I’m only half a man.

If I was strong I could be a man.
Holding your hand for all.
I’d face the world alone, I’d build on your walls.
But I’m only half a man.
Track Name: Om Shaantih
Keep me not in the darkness, lead me to the light.
Keep me not in fear of death but lead me to the light.

Keep me not in the darkness, lead me to the light.
Keep me not in fear of death but lead me to the light.
