Album Review

New Day Rising proved to be an ideal title for On Trial's third album from 1999, being that it served as a stylistic bridge between their first two efforts' always spirited but rather indistinguishable Euro stoner rock to the far more flexible neo-psychedelic formula ahead of them (ironically, they'd been there before, early in their career — before going more "stoner"). Both counts are equally represented here, with the former showing the group still terribly reliant on the echoed vocals and feral acid-fuzz abandon of Monster Magnet (see "Pot of Gold," "Long Time Gone," "Cast It Aside"), while the latter opens up their horizons into organ-drenched, mid-paced head nods ("Flashin'ghast," "As If...") and soft-as-a-pillow, bubbling water guitars ("Doubt," "Sleeper"). Taking these experiments even further, and not always to victorious results, "Do You See Her?" successfully mingles Eastern-flavored sitar with ominous Western guitars; "Outside the Door" offers little more than obscure warped vocal effects; and the titanic, 11-minute title track embarks on a historical odyssey, starting with haunting sounds reminiscent of the Doors' "The End" and eventually crash-landing with a nightmarish vertigo à la Magnet's (yes, them again) "Spine of God." All of which serves to reiterate the notion that New Day Rising was indeed a happy augur of great things to come, with On Trial's ensuing fourth album, 2003's brilliant Blinded by the Sun, delivering on much that was promised here.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Danish retro-rockers On Trial are caught in time warp of their own devising. Though they only formed in the mid-'90s, vocalist Bo Morthen Petersen, guitarists Anders Skjodt and Henrik, bassist Nikolaj Lykkenielsen, and drummer/organist Guf "Lorenzo Woodrose" Lorentzen play psychedelic music reminiscent of late-'60s acts like Love and 13th Floor Elevators. Their releases include 1995's Seventy Kilometers of Underwater Nothingness, 1997's Head Entrance, 1999's New Day Rising, and a limited-edition...
