Frederick Jones My review is just buy it. I loved everything that this album brings that I just had to add it to my vinyl collection. Favorite track: Beyond The Electric Sun.

antares8001 Well the cover art is not the best thing about this album, and that's saying a lot.
Classic 70s psychedelic hard rock/heavy metal sound that would allow comparisons to bands like Cream, Blue Cheer, Uriah Heep and Blue Öyster Cult. One of the better, if not the best albums I've heard in this genre, that wasn't actually released around that time.
It's also certainly no small feat to achieve such an authentic retro sound without simultaneously making you feel like you have heard this one before. Favorite track: Celestial Empress.

Héctor Hurtado Grooscors The classic "power trio" sound for the 21st century listeners. These guys are graduates from the Jimi Hendrix/Cream/Blue Cheer University!

Our second offering of COSMIC HEAVY ROCK.

"With its gnarly odes to voodoo children and celestial empresses, Trails of Kozmic Dust finds Colorado’s Cloud Catcher settling further into their swampy, vintage sound. These eight slices of bluesy psych-rock capture heavy metal at its most classic. With a record store’s worth of riffs at his disposal, vocalist and guitarist Rory Rummings’ extended solos—equal parts cosmic grandeur and classic rock worship—are the record’s highlight. The whole album serves as a reminder that space might represent our projections of the future, but it’s been there long before any of us. “We’ll leave this world far behind/Believer in ancient times,” Rummings sings optimistically in closing track “Righteous Ruler.” And just like that, the great unknown feels a bit more familiar." - PITCHFORK

"Trails of Kozmic Dust feels like the output of a band that’s survived decades (and multiple musical trends) together, yet it’s only Cloud Catcher’s second album since forming in 2013. They already get it. Clearly, the next step should be a co-headlining tour with Earthless to completely disintegrate what’s left of our brains." - INVISIBLE ORANGES

"For some bands the saying goes “the sky’s the limit”; for Rummings Handman and Wentworth there is no limit, there is only infinite. It is an album that gets better with every listen and is sure to be on the end of year lists for anyone even remotely interested in heavy psychedelia. Mind-bending is a phrase overused in this genre (even by myself) but this is the one album scheduled this year where the term becomes an understatement. Not one you’ll want to miss." - METAL OBSERVER

"With Trails Of Kozmic Dust, Cloud Catcher have made an album that is not only out of this world on a sonic level but also on a spiritual level and if this album had to have a motto, it would be turn on, turn up and let loose! So do just that and turn this album up loud and get loose to the astral jams that reign supreme within." - INVICTA MAGAZINE

Track Name: Astral Warlord
The sword that's forged in the fire
Gains it's strength from the embers down below
Astral Warlord chants and sings
Of a cosmic forest that guards the mystic throne

Your ashes will fill this valley
And from your graves the harvest will be sewn
Twilight fades in your eyes
Guilty are those who fear the unknown

Winds of dawn are howlin'
Calling your name in the dark of the night
Winter comes for your life
Cold is the steel that ends your strife
Track Name: Celestial Empress
Soft breeze blowin' in her hair
Winter had ended as she kissed the air
Mountains rose up just to be in sight
Celestial Empress gave the gift of night
Oh how I love you

Heard her callin'
I came crawlin'

Rays of joy passed through my eyes
A fading horizon blends a purple sky
Saw her waiting there for me
Underneath the council tree
Oh how I love you

Heard her callin'
I came crawlin'
Track Name: Beyond The Electric Sun
Voodoo Children lurking in the swamp
Gazing over crystal time
Sacred magma chalice of the Earth
Reflects into the grieving eye

Visions of long ago
This I found beyond the electric sun

Lion's tale led me to the land where the ocean meets the sky
On the cliffs the natives sat laughing watching the daze go by

Sands of tomorrow
This I found beyond the electric sun
Track Name: Visions
I have seen a vision
Lucifer has risen
He's the one your fear
Judgement day draws near

End of time is comin'
See the people runnin'
Runnin' for their lives
It's your turn to die

I see people dyin'
Mother nature is cryin'
See the soldiers marchin'
Evil eye is watchin'

End of time is comin'
See the people runnin'
Runnin' for their lives
We're all gonna die

Upon a hill they gathered
A mist of cloaks and daggers
In his name they slay
For the figure in the haze

The moon and the stars
Guide my gilded path
Link between the worlds
Visions of the damned
Track Name: Trails Of Kozmic Dust
Flyin' high
On the beams of the sun
Eyes wide
As my senses overcome
Swirling patterns inside of my brain
Grasp the hidden hand
Welcome, my friend

Trails of kozmic dust connect my soul
Tellin' me secrets that should not be told
Time is iridescent in black holes
Trails of kozmic dust will guide you home
Track Name: Righteous Ruler
Riding through the valley
Woman by my side
Sun drips from my eyes
As we escape from the night

We'll leave the city
When we can
New horizons
Will appear

Righteous Ruler
Reclaims the land
Contorts the cosmos
Arcane magick in hand

We'll leave this world
Far behind
In ancient times
