“Drenched in acidfuzz and nostalgia of film techniques (or decay?) from decades past, ‘The Silent Ghost of Doom’ will most certainly break up the tedium of your nine-to-five. Or add further injection of hallucinatory, trip-inducing heavy rocking, if that’s your sort of thing.” — Decibel
Portugal’s volume merchants, MISS LAVA, will drop the deliciously riff raging sounds of their Sonic Debris full-length via Small Stone Recordings next month.
As a precursor to its release, today Decibel Magazine delivers the visual accompaniment to “The Silent Ghost Of Doom.” The second single from Sonic Debris, “The Silent Ghost Of Doom” clip was directed by Bruno SimÃµes with direction of photography by Mr. Ivo Cordeiro (the team behind MISS LAVA‘s “Black Rainbow” video). “To shoot this video, we went to Lisbon’s old athenaeum — the Ateneu Comercial de Lisboa,” elaborates drummer, J. Garcia. “The historic scenery set the right vibe for the song.”
“This is a loud one that shouts about freeing yourself from tedium, apathy and past time glories,” adds vocalist Johnny Lee. “The broken mirror sights the silent ghost of doom.”
“Loud is the operative descriptor for this four-minute psychedelic rock rager,” writes Decibel. “Drenched in acidfuzz and nostalgia of film techniques (or decay?) from decades past, ‘The Silent Ghost of Doom’ will most certainly break up the tedium of your nine-to-five. Or add further injection of hallucinatory, trip-inducing heavy rocking, if that’s your sort of thing.”

Sonic Debris will be released May 20th and come available on CD and 180-gram light blue vinyl limited to 500 units. For preorders go to THIS LOCATION where you’ll also hear a stream of opening track “Another Beast Is Born.”
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.
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.
