Orange crush vinyl with printed innersleeve.
Gaia is one of the most acclaimed and popular songs taken off the Wildhoney album. It became one of the keystones in doom metal and evokes the lyrics of a classic melody. The band, led by visionary guitarist, singer and songwriter Johan Edlund have been at the forefront of doom and rock innovation since the early 90s, deeply influenced by Pink Floyd and paying the pertinent tribute here with their own interpretation of When Youre In. This cover really feels like a loose, lazy band session, rather than the fairly meticulous and detail-obsessive styles showcased on Wildhoney and A Deeper Kind of Slumber. It has a rather relaxed atmosphere, and the combination of Pink Floyd riffs and Tiamat’s style at the time works very well indeed. This is no coincidence, I suspect. This song is certainly the one most worth exploring of this release’s new pair.
