Electric Valley Records presents Cancervo’s upcoming debut LP, 1!

Electric Valley Records presents Cancervo’s upcoming debut LP, 1, out February 26th digitally and on LPs — 150x Green Vinyl, 120x Transparent Vinyl, and 30x Ultra LTD “Mountain Edition.”

Cancervo is an iconic mountain in the heart of a valley, rich in tradition and popular legends. Charmed by the tale of a half dog and half deer creature who lived on that mountain, three local guys from San Giovanni Bianco, Bergamo, started a heavy psych group, brimful of ‘70s heavy riffs and mystical moments. Without further ado, the power trio named the band Cancervo as a tribute to their own valley.

The Italian psych dealers’ debut, straightforwardly titled 1, represents local places and folktales. A complete instrumental outing, the album will drag the listeners between mystic mountains (“Aralalta”), rushing river (“1987”), wildfire (“Cancervo”), deathly gallery (“Darco”), and murky village (“Averara”). As a surprise, the LP additionally offers an instrumental version of Cream’s “Swlabr.”

Throughout the six numbers, the heavy rock ensemble walks the line between both erratic and expected territories, dabbling in sedating psych, deserted stoner/doom, and preternatural prog — certainly upholding the ‘70s spirit.
