Year Long Disaster: Black Magic; All Mysteries Revealed

Two former alcoholics/junkies and a pick-up drummer. That's how LA trio Yera Long Disaster started out. For their Black Magic; All Mysteries Revealed album they picked up The Master and Margarita, the Russian cult novel by Mikhail Bulgakov and the result is slightly more literate version of Soundgarden - monster riffing that fails to scare but succeeds to please.

Black Magic; All Mysteries Revealed is filled with songs about misfits trying to make a buck. All mysticism aside this if pretty basic stoner rock that is straight as its now sober members. FYI: Love Like Blood is an original song, not a Killing Joke cover.

Year Long Disaster:
Daniel Davies: guitar, vocals
Rich Mullins: bass
Brad Hargreaves: drums
