Oceans of Venus
'Oceans of Venus.....the most brilliant rock record to come out of the UK in ages.' Bob Ezrin, Producer (Jane's Addiction, KISS, Pink Floyd) 'Oceans of Venus contains everything a proper rock record should: muscular riffs, real hooks and rude words. In a world populated by skatepunk pseudo-metal and frat boy fart-lighters, Rachel Stamp are indeed a tonic' - XFM Rachel Stamp are the most exciting band in the world. It's a simple fact. Described by Classic Rock as 'the UK's only rock'n'roll hope,' the band collide influences as diverse as Black Sabbath and Prince to create a truly unique sound which Metal Hammer have called 'pure genius'. Passionate, magical, sexy and fierce, Rachel Stamp are a rock revolution. Self-styled mavericks David Ryder-Prangley (vocal and bass), Shaheena Dax (keyboards) and Will Crewdson (guitar) have built an intensely devoted following in their native UK with merciless touring. Hard work which resulted in the group's first two self-financed albums ('Hymns for Strange Children' and 'Stampax') both achieving UK independent chart top ten placings. Now Rachel Stamp unleash their brand new album 'Oceans of Venus' on the Captiva label. Hailed by Rock Sound as 'the best British guitar album since (Radiohead's) 'The Bends'' and 'an addictive antidote to sexless nu-metal posturing' by The Independent on Sunday. From majestic opener 'Starbirth in the Triffid Nebula' to the MTV2 and Kerrang!TV video favorite 'Black Cherry' the album is by turns raw, sinister, erotic and beautiful. Catch Rachel Stamp live in the flesh as soon as humanly possible and witness the 'total insanity' (Kerrang!) for yourself. **** Please note this version of 'Oceans of Venus' is a limited edition pressing which contains bonus tracks, different cover artwork and is only available on CD Baby and at live shows. ****.
