The four piece EPHEDRA from Zofingen/Switzerland have their musical roots all over the place, spreading from stoner rock, metal and punk to death metal. That influences mixed up and stirred well, the new album, 'Can'-Ka No Rey', serves music that pleases friends of trippy instrumental music, which is deversified, entertaining and heavy at the same time, reaching its peak with the track 'Mother Stone', from my very doomish point of view.

"Founded in 2012 by Bass player Kilian & Drummer Tomi to have a fun project that should go in the direction of Kyuss, Karma to Burn & Monster Magnet, they went through some lineup changes in their early days before completing their current lineup with the 2 guitarist Andy & Roman in 2013. Over the past 2 years they played in Germany, Poland, Austria & Switzerland. Shared stages with bands such as Electric Wizard, Truckfighters, Yawning Man, Monkey 3, 1000 Mods, Karma To Burn, Sasquatch, Elder, Greenleaf, The Midnight Ghost Train, Goatess & Pentagram. Ephedra went back into the Studio at the Foolpark Studios, Luzern, to record their second Album Can- Ka No Rey, which is named after a place in Stephen Kings Fantasy Saga The Dark Tower."
