The original
pioneers of Space Rock return with their eagerly awaited stunning new album –
Blood Of The Earth, their first in 5 years. Produced by the band at state of the
art recording facility Earth Studios, 'Blood Of The Earth' takes the listener on
a journey through crushing visceral space rock, doom driven poetry, whimsical
mantras and imagination opera. An example of humans and machines pulsing in
harmony out into the void……..

Hawkwind are
an English rock band, one of the earliest space rock groups. Their lyrics favour
urban and science fiction themes. They are also a noted precursor to punk rock
and now are considered a link between the hippie and punk cultures. Formed in
November 1969 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Brock, Hawkwind have gone
through many incarnations and styles of music. Critic Jim Green describes their
trademark sound as characterised by "that gargantuan and impenetrable
pre-metal/hardcore drone, those great riffs, that inexorable drive to
destinations unknown". Dozens of musicians have worked with the group; notable
fantasy and science fiction writer Michael Moorcock was an occasional
collaborator.
