Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

Gone Cosmic is:

Abbie Thurgood: vocalist

Devin Purdy: guitarist

Brett Whittingham: bassist

Marcello Castronuovo: drummer


I haven't really immersed myself in the psychedelic rock realm other than my love for Hawkwind and The Beatles, so I tread delicately as I don't have a large background to compare it to. A lot of times it turns out to be a good thing, as you don't go into the review with preconceptions. I received Gone Cosmic to review and what really sold me was for one, they are based out of Canada and I love the stuff from there, and secondly, the female frontwoman. And let me tell you, Abbie has amazing vocals. She reminds me of Ann Wilson in the very early days of Heart and maybe add a jagged edge of Janis Joplin. 

Their album is entitled Sideways In Time and if you give it a whirl a few times that is exactly the effect the album in its entirety rears upon you. With the smooth flow of its meticulous groovy rhythms and its pulsating underlying energy, this is certainly a band to go to when you just want something far out and unique.

“Dazed” is a song we can all relate to - getting that unquenchable temptation and even though you know it's gonna end up in some hellish outcome, you can't seem to help but be lured into its grasp. It ties in to a song a few tracks later called “Siren” and we have all been duped by ‘sirens’ in life, whether it's a person or a thing, it seduces the fuck out of you, causes you to lose your mind per se, and you find yourself in utter chaos. It's funny too because as I was really listening to the rhythm I ended up missing my exit, caught in the moment. I enjoyed the energy and the trippy feel interspersed throughout with songs like “Deadlock” and “Turbulent.”

I give Gone Cosmic a horns up even if it's not necessarily metal. Anyone that ventures into other worlds is metal to me.
