LA OTRACINA is the New Wave of Psychedelic Heavy Metal, a contemporary musical vision exploding with classic influences and mind-warping sonic fusions! Their sound is a dense and majestic universe where the epic glory of 70’s proto-metal and hard-rock dance with the graceful complexity of cosmic progressive rock and the hallucinogenic mystery of heavy psychedelia, and all the while free-form improvisational interludes give way to poly-rhythmic thrash assaults and spiraling jazz-rock freakouts!
Formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2003 by drummer/vocalist Adam Kriney and guitarist Joshua Anzano (TITAN/CHILDREN), LA OTRACINA was always hell-bent on creating highly visionary music that collided sonic ideas from the outer reaches of heavy and weird. Since that time the group has amassed a huge discography on labels including Holy Mountain (OM, LESBIAN, SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE, MAMMATUS), Foxy Digitalis, and Kriney’s own Colour Sounds Recordings. As a live entity, they have embarked on endless US tours and 1 Italian tour, in addition to countless shows in their hometown. Their tireless work ethic and far-reaching musical abilities have earned them a devoted cult following in the underground psychedelic/heavy music world, and their live shows leave fans screaming and fist-pumping in ecstatic awe!

2012 will see LA OTRACINA annihilate Europe with a 2 month tour from April through June, kicking off with ROADBURN Festival and ending in south Europe on a private event (no info can be gived)

“8/10. LA OTRACINA are raining death from above with their wah-wah pedals. This time, their instrumental psychedelia arrives fortified with Tom G. Warrior-style vocals and some newly acquired Black Sabbath vinyl. These Brooklyn weirdos will chase a quality jam wherever it leads them, from plodding doom into an epic Iced Earth gallop, out-of-control rocket rides, peyote-fueled muscle cars racing across the Mojave, and excursions into the Hawkwind sector of the galaxy. The sheer breadth of LA OTRACINA’s fantastic voyage makes it one worth taking.” – Decibel Magazine

“’New Wave of Psychedelic Heavy Metal’ frontrunners La Otracina staple prog, psych, metal, Deep Purple, and Big Business, plus unexpected about-turns and atmospherics with ridiculous results. Drummer and vocalist Adam Kriney keeps a tight shift, making this one hell of a strange beast that always comes up with something interesting.” – Rock-A-Rolla Magazine

“La Otracina aren't holding anything back, but they ARE making damn sure they're tighter and heavier and probably catchier than your band. Unless your band is, like, Pharaoh Overlord or Mammatus or Danava or something, in whose illustrious company La Otracina definitely belong. If you can imagine a New Age version of the Saviours you'd be close, though on “Reality Has Got To Die” these guys have almost moved beyond comparison, whilst making an album seemingly focus-group tested entirely at Aquarius Records. In other words, recommended!" – Aquarius Records
