HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS To Reissue DOZER Classic Records!
A first sign for a comeback, or at least hope dies last? Definitely a news that will make every riff lovers’ and fuzz fan- heart beat faster: Legendary DOZER have signed a deal with cult label Heavy Psych Sounds, who will reissue the band’s first 3 records in early 2020!
In The Tail Of A Comet (2000, Man’s Ruin Records), Madre De Dios (2001) and Call It Conspiracy (2003, both out via Molten Universe), belong to the three masterpieces of the entire European stoner scene. These three records elevated the scene to a higher level, influenced heavy rock generations for decades, and handed Swedish DOZER the scepter of the Scandinavian stoner movement. The songwriting on these cult records distinguished DOZER from any other band in the early 2000’s. Not only had they a huge influence on the European stoner bands, but one can definitely say DOZER own the title of the European Godfathers of Stoner Rock.
As yet it’s unsure if DOZER will ever return back with a new release but in the meantime, fans can enjoy this very special “threesome”… The reissues will coming out this March on Heavy Psych Sounds and as special coloured vinyl editions; a bonus for all fans: In The Tail Of A Comet will be also released on a single vinyl for the first time ever!
DOZER guitarist Tommi Holappa comments:
“Our first 3 albums were recorded a long long time ago when we were still young and dumb! But don’t you worry, we are still dumb, just old and dumb! Finally our first babies will be reissued on vinyl again after being sold out for years! Enjoy!”
Says Rajko Dolhar of Heavy Psych Sounds:
“We are so stoked to present a big comeback, a dream come true! Heavy Psych Sounds Records is reissuing the first three albums of the Swedish legendary band Dozer: In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy! It’s an honor for us having this incredible band in our growing HPS fuzz family!”

More About DOZER:
As with hundreds of other young Swedish bands, DOZER was the obvious answer to the boredom of a small town youth in a land where the sun seldom visits. After forming in 1995, DOZER emerged in 1998 with their debut 7″ which was awarded “Single of the week” in KERRANG! magazine. DOZER quickly progressed beyond their early influences and created a style of their own incorporating modern elements into their classic heavy rock sound. A sound that always has been intensely heavy but yet also strongly song and melody driven by the distinctive vocals of singer Fredrik Nordin. DOZER has carefully culivated a following like none other and a reputation second to none due mostly assuredly to their constant touring and explosive live shows. The band scattered releases on labels like Meteor City, Man’s Ruin, & their own Molten Universe before finding a home at Small Stone. With albums like Madre De Dios and Through the Eyes of Heathens these simple Swede’s have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of stoner rock, often placed upon the same pedestal as the fathers of the movement – Kyuss and Monster Magnet. With the release of their 5th full length album Beyond Colossal in 2008, the sons of Sweden seemed poised to teach the Underground a lesson or two about what Rock and Roll is all about. After a hiatus the band returned to the scene with some live shows over the last years, for 2020 they are planning an Australian tour. Just recently they signed a deal with cult and fuzz rock label Heavy Psych Sounds, who will re-release the bands first three albums In The Tail Of A Comet, Madre De Dios and Call It Conspiracy in March 2020. One can only hope, this is just the beginning of a new DOZER era…
