“Vagabonds and neofreaks, the Slap Gurus roam into a dense and smoky rock that explore starry spaces and shady recesses of the deepest seventies. The band finds balance and personality in the pursuit of a hard laid-back attitude, built on relaxed times and the creeping rhythms of those who just smoked a first prize chillum.”
CLASSIX magazine #47
“This combo plays classic 70s oriented rock, blues tinged. The voice is really soulful, yet masculine, while guitar weaves vintage riffs of its own.
The record is varied, and these guys are capable to craft psychedelic desert tunes resembling a little the culling, soft spoken and shamanic voice of Jim Morrison.”
FIRE magazine, N°2
“Their style is the one that can do its magic on the stage: musical crescendos that carry healthy adrenaline, heavy solos, good arrangements and a pair of guitars that really know what they are doing; all this with a mystic and foreign mistery that make even more refined the project.
We already feel, from now, the very high potential of this band.”
“Cosmic Hill is a debut album that bring a breath of fresh air in the 70s hard rock.
Their music is not derivative, but is pure essence of what they love.”
“This debut album presents a promising hard rock reality, tinted of blues and psychedelic sounds that is deeply inspired to the 1970’s musical myth to give birth to a musical revival that fully convinces and astonish for its instrumental and compositional effectiveness.”
“Slap Guru are good and they let us glimpse the light.”
“A series of twists that invite you to span your mind and look to a higher and deeper dimension, halfway between dream and reality, with stories about purple flowers grown on the back and other visionary, delicate and poetic images. This is the extra gear of the band that has great performers inside it, which has good potential to emerge thanks to this mix of good technique, openness to the world and poetic mysticism.”
“A great debut that predicts a good future, recommended to those who are now approaching rock, the real one.”
“Six tracks that transpire a muscular and nervous blues rock, rich of hard moments and vicious psychedelic ideas.They try to shake the guts of the listeners with the language of rock, and with the good old ways, often and willingly, they succeed.”
CLASSIC ROCK magazine, N°46
“A liberating sensation that has few equal in 2016. A really successful disc.”
EXIT WELL magazine, N°8
“A kind of extended played rich of sound intuitions and liberating intentions. The Iberian quartet comes to us through crypto-stoner fittings and blues embroideries, ready to give a soul to clear ideas and visionary arrangements.
A successful mix of genres, which seems to be able to move us back and forth on the timeline of rock.”
“Blues, rock, latent psychedelic and stoner components are the main features of this EP. Six tracks exploring a good, expressive and wide range that denotes personality and ability to a very interesting writing and interpretation.”
“Definitely pleasant compositions and arrangements, linear and stretch-free performances. A nice surprise!”
They are like gypsies or butterflies that switch from a flower to another to deliver their naif load of vintage acid rock, blues and psychedelia.”
FIRE magazine, N°4
“The disc has clean sounds and is well produced. You can feel that the band is made up of professionals.”
