Following the Small Stone Records release of their Sonic Debris LP in May, Portugal’s MISS LAVA has just issued a new video from the record, created for the song “Another Beast Is Born.” The clip is an adaptation of 1971 French film Don’t Deliver Us From Evil (Mais Ne Nous Délivrez Pas Du Mal) by JoÃ«l Séria.
Offers vocalist Johnny Lee of the song, “In times like these is unbelievable how often we see people losing their lives by the hands of cold-hearted creatures who have no regard for human life. ‘Another Beast Is Born’ is our trip to hell to meet those creatures. It’s a song with a touch of doom and black metal, a dark place we haven’t explored before in MISS LAVA, a song with a big riff that still blows my mind, and is one of my favorites in the album.”

A true sonic voyage with a diversity beyond anything yet evidenced by the band, Sonic Debris traverses unexplored auditory landscapes. Throughout the record’s ten consuming movements, MISS LAVA manifests explosive sound textures, kaleidoscopic asteroids, and obscure beasts making for an all-consuming listen that’s difficult to overlook. Outlaws Of The Sun notes, “Sonic Debris sounds like the stoned out offspring of Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, Monster Magnet, and Truckfighters all vying for musical supremacy. And for that you will be crazy to miss this superb album. Excellent and highly recommended.” Rock And Roll Fables hails the band’s fusion of, “Kyuss’ wall of sound with Monster Magnet’s psychedelia and a little of Corrosion Of Conformity’s Southern-fried jam sensibility,” further gushing, “Saying MISS LAVA could be the next Kyuss is a bold statement. I know this. That band was the one that set me on the path to my musical awakening when I was just a wee lad. If Kyuss followed up Blues For The Red Sun with another album (and not the Sky Valley concept), then they’d be lucky to have it sound as good as Sonic Debris. Yep, I said it.”
Sonic Debris was captured at Pentagon Audio Manufacturers, JDB Showroom and EstÃºdio Crossover in Lisbon at various times throughout 2014 and 2015, produced by Fernando Matias and MISS LAVA, engineered by Matias, José Pedro AtaÃde and Ricardo Bravo, mixed by Benny Grotto at Mad Oak Studios in Boston, Massachusetts, and mastered by Chris Goosman at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Sonic Debris follows 2013’s Red Supergiant and 2009’s Blues For The Dangerous Miles, which was listed among Loud Magazine’s Top Five Portuguese albums of that year, and 2008’s limited edition, self-titled EP.
