Review by Rivertree
4 stars This is a hell of a space rock collection from this Finnish band named DARK SUN. Eight archive jams taken from 2004/2005 studio sessions which fortunately were made available in the end. The given line up information is a mystery for me, they use kind of aliases, at least core members Janne and Mikko Kuokkanen are on board, I'm quite sure. The recordings however make it clear, they are experienced space cowboys. First the crew picks up Pink Floyd's 'Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' and the groovy interpretation of this classic marks a highlight, no doubts. Towards the end they even seem to move into Hawkwind's 'Master Of The Universe' a bit.

The tracks are often faded out respectively in, which means are extracts from more extended excursions. As usual they are alternating between relaxed moments and grooving parts. I especially like A Journey Through Space - the title exactly matches the mood first but then the jam picks up pace furthermore featuring two nicely corresponding electric guitars. This applies to the wonderfully melancholic Celestial Waves in the same way

Hope Turns Into Fear comes in a different vein with electric piano and vocal support, probably from another session. To name related bands I'd say this is close to Oresund Space Collective and My Brother The Wind. Designated space rock warlords who love to hear extended guitar jams can grab this without hesitation ... unless they are able to reach for one of the few produced copies. Otherwise you easily can pick up the stream samples on the DARK SUN bandcamp page.
