Lo-Pan release mind bending new video for ‘Savage Heart’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at 12:18 PM (PST)

Lo-Pan return with a staggeringly cool new music video for their song “Savage Heart.” This trippy and creative clip will make even straight edge kids feel like they swam underwater to the Moon. Into it. Created by collage artist Somsara Rielly using old school stop-motion animation, it is one of the more refreshing videos I have seen in 2019.

Order new album Subtle today! The album is available on LP with a sleeve designed by Eric Palmerlee, and as always for Aqualamb releases, as a 100 page art book/digital download package. RIYL Torche, Nebula, ASG.

Album Review: Lo-Pan “Colossus”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at 7:02 AM (PST)

Lo Pan‘s newest Colossus is sweet relief for the ears, opening with all the swagger they can muster via hard rocker “Regulus” and never looking back.

This record had my favorite cover art of the year as well (until I saw the new Krokodil art, which is just insane). But the bold image of 4 horses sort of looking like part of a bleeding skull peyote bud really grabbed me as awesome and matches the soulful and well constructed but searching grooves herein. Spare and real production about PERFORMANCE but nonetheless pretty high quality (though not as much of a glossy sheen as recent excellent Fireball Ministry that seemed to aim for a solo Ozzy kind of vibe, for example). Lo-Pan have indeed made a Colossus of ” an LP with time of our lives” melodies and songs like “Land Of The Blind” that possess enough desert and mental spark to please fans of everything from Floor to Tool to Vista Chino.

Ohio volume squad, LO-PAN, is readying to take to the streets again on a mammoth live excursion alongside San Francisco’s Black Cobra. The journey will commence in Phoenix  on August 18th and wind through nearly three dozen cities, coming to a close in Oakland on October 2nd.

 

Comments the band, “LO-PAN is proud to be doing our part to support the oil and gas industry of America! Land of the Free home of the Brave. Seriously though anyone have an unlimited gas card they want to donate to our mission from god? Also, Black Cobra rules and we are very excited to support them on this trek.”

BLACK COBRA today announces a more than month-long US Tour, set to begin in late August and running into the beginning of October.

 916

With thirty-two cities confirmed to endure the BLACK COBRA live treatment at press time, the actions begin in Phoenix, Arizona on August 28th, then spiraling though the Southeast, up the East Coast and back across the country in a downward slash on their way back to their Bay Area homelands. Direct support for BLACK COBRA on all dates will be provided by Ohio riff rock quartet, Lo Pan.

With relentless dexterity and viciousness, as a meager duo, San Francisco’s BLACK COBRA delivers an even more concussive attack on stage than their already decimating recordings relay, with a backline to blow away bands with lineups more than twice their size. The band’s unhinged sludge metal loaded with neck-mangling time switch-ups and songwriting as devastating as their delivery is loud, unloaded with the most rampant punk rock energy, BLACK COBRA has proven their live devastation with endless devotion since their 2001 inception, the band having played nearly seven hundred shows worldwide since then.

Stand by for updates from BLACK COBRA as the band soon records their next LP, due for release in early 2015.

Lo-Pan cover art for “Colossus” is my favorite of 2014 so far

There have been some great album covers this year which defy the idea that an MP3 alone doesn’t need corresponding record art. Sure, digital is in some ways better for the environment (unless you start talking about mining issues worldwide to meet demands of technology, but I digress).

There has been some great shit out this year artistically, from Castle’s Russian symbolic painter Denis Forkas Kostromitin (who worked with Behemoth after first working with Castle, previously) painting for Under Siege to the very Zen/xistential San Francisco artist Seth Curcio’s Empress AD work for Still Life Moving Fast… but Lo-Pan’s Colossus art takes the cake thus far.

Maybe I just have a mutant boner for the upcoming X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse, but in that case you’d think the Lo-Pan record would be called “Archangel” instead if “Colossus”, though at this point I think Gambit and Wolverine were Horseman of Death as well, so I can’t fucking keep track. Point being, this art from the Ohio rockers next Small Stone release by Jason Alexander Byers (ex-Disengage, Black Black Black) is killer, bold, simple and apocalyptic. It would make a great tattoo and look great on an LP jacket…or a biker jacket.
