josedenoche These riff can take you to places were your mind can't even tell if is a dream or one trippy ride to blissfulness. Great album in all measures. Favorite track: Inert.

Logen Ninefingers Imposing and robust instrumental music, steeped in a swirling Psychedelia from these Austrian Space Rockers. At times, the brooding nature of the music reminds of early Mogwai, such as on 'Inert' where the melody controls the storm this trio whip up. Other tracks, such as closing number 'Morph' has a deliberately tempered pace, the closing 5 minutes of this epic track is amongst the most hypntoic and inspiring soundscapes you're likely to hear. Favorite track: Morph.

LUTCH their overall sound is so awesum👍👿😎
Huge riffs and echoing lead guitars that make you feel like you're speeding in a muscle car on a desert road. The psychedelic side of this album is toned down a bit, so it doesn't distract you from the experience by sounding too weird. As far as instrumental albums go, this is simply 10/10. Eternal thanks for the album code guys!
Favorite track: Orca.

"...have experienced such sounds at a happening hosted by The Pink Floyd, Les Lekin deliver their work with a solid combination of ability and enthusiasm that would have an audience blissfully swaying at a modern day equivalent like Freak Valley."

„Died With Fear“ ist ein verdammter Trip geworden, der keinen Gesang braucht. Bedrohlich aufbrandende, dann wieder herrlich tiefenentspannte und überaus launige Songs unterhalten mit allerlei Überraschungsmomenten, mächtiger Gitarrenarbeit und rhythmischer Präzision. Les Lekin spielen sich mit wachsender Begeisterung in einen wahren Rausch und entsteigen in knapp 44 Minuten der szenischen Enge der Heimat in Siebenmeilenstiefeln – eine faszinierende Offenbarung, gerade mit Kopfhörern."

"...Heady, trippy and with a satisfying crunch at its core "Died With Fear" is an amazing collection of instrumental pieces that should not only appeal to those that like their music a little on the psychedelic side but also those who like a little bite in their grooves..."

Nos autrichiens jouent d’un heavy psychédélique vintage en quatre actes, de longues pièces instrumentales où seuls basse, batterie et guitares sont invitées.

FLIGHT 13: "...Ziemlich beindruckend und noch einmal eine Verfeinerung gegenüber dem Debütalbum stellen die 4 rein instrumentalen Tracks in epischer Spiellänge dar. Les Lekin agieren wie ein längst versunkener Koloss, der sich zu einer schweren Klangreise aufmacht: die 4 Tracks sind härter, wenn hart und zugleich hypnotischer, wenn psychedelisch ausgespielt werden soll, das klassischeTrio lässt sich Zeit, lässt sphärische Noten stehen, spielt mit der Zeit, baut effektive Dynamiken auf und lodert dann irgendwann auf: diese Breaks kommen gleissend und kathartisch. Das erinnert an Tempel, Colour Haze, an Earthless und frühe Long Distance Calling."
