Influenced by Hawkwind and Pink Floyd, Ampacity is a musical collective dedicated to exploring the realms of regressive rock, infused with stoner and space vibes. After releasing their amazing debut album "Encounter One," followed by "Superluminal" and "The Sum Of All Flaws" EP, the band disbanded. However, at the beginning of 2023, Ampacity announced their return to the stage as a four-piece band and signed with Piranha Music to release their new album titled "IV."
The official press text describes a musical fusion that I couldn't have imagined: the power of Hawkwind and the harmonies of Pink Floyd, united in a single song created by one band. Reflecting on the early stages of Hawkwind's career, I recalled many symphonic tracks that could easily stand alongside Pink Floyd. This band has brought together what seems to be a contradiction and molded it into their own creation. This is art. I'm impressed.
The release date for Ampacity's new record is March 31st, and I am already filled with anticipation. It is a masterpiece that pushes the boundaries of progressive rock, capturing the essence of Hawkwind and Pink Floyd in a truly unique way. With their influential predecessors in mind, Ampacity has crafted something that sounds both familiar and fresh. They have managed to exceed my musical expectations and ignite my imagination.
Give yourself the opportunity to dive into the captivating world of Ampacity and experience their extraordinary music. This album undoubtedly stands as a pinnacle of regressive rock and is a must-have for any enthusiast of these distinctive genres.
