Stoner doomers ALBINÖ RHINO (Helsinki, Finland) will release their self-titled debut album on April 31st, 2014 in collaboration with Inverse Records.
The album, titled simply «Albinö Rhino», takes a slightly more straightforward approach than its predecessor, the 2013 EP «Return of the Goddess», but maintains the idea of letting songs flow freely and allow them length without limiting them unnecessarily with traditional pop song structures. The aim was to deliver an album which could be presented live as it is layed down on tape, on single takes, without «Pro-Tooling». The band has been inspired by the entire spectrum of doom metal from the 70’s to this day, naming bands such as Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Sleep and Reverend Bizarre as their influences.
With Albinö Rhino’s new album, the listener can lose himself for a 40-minute trip that ranges from looping riffs to classical doom, through heavy rock to something that then suddenly takes you on a rolling psychedelic journey for 15 minutes as a finale where one can rebuild himself back together again.
