Nebula Bio

Band members
Eddie Glass Ruben Romano Tom Davies


Nebula are the full embodiment of heavy-psych rock: high-energy electric blues, lead-footed psychedelic warriors, rock & roll road dogs and the best damned band to come down the pike in a long, long time. If you're unconvinced, their latest havoc-inducing platter, Atomic Ritual, will send you preaching at the pulpit of Nebula.

The great swirling, electrical ball of dynamism and potential known as Nebula formed in the mythical abyss of Los Angeles in 1997. In its current incarnation the band is comprised of guitar-annihilation, 6-string-wizard/vocalist Eddie Glass, . Cosmic skins basher Ruben Romano also adds his voice to the sound and from England, holding down the bottom end is Tom Davies. The departure of original bassist Mark Abshire during the recording of Atomic Ritual brought back Simon Moon to fill the duties. The past 6 years has seen the band release two full-lengths, To The Center (1999) and Charged (2001) both on Sub Pop, two EPs, Let It Burn (1998 on Tee Pee later reissued by Relapse) and Sun Creature (1999 on Man's Ruin), as well as a split disc with Lowrider released on Meteor City. Additionally, in 2002 Meteor City released the aptly titled Dos EPs containing tracks from Sun Creature and the Nebula/Lowrider split. The disc also included 3 previously unreleased cuts. But even with all that nothing can prepare listeners for the crushing impact of Atomic Ritual.

Atomic Ritual is charged with electric guitars that send you into the stratosphere and a rhythm section that brings you back down to earth. Nebula has always done what comes naturally and the music they make flows straight from the "electric synapse" inside. The tracks, laced with fuzz guitars and ripping drums, were laid down at Lawnmower Studios in Pasadena, California. Produced by the legendary Chris Goss who, besides handling guitar and vocals for the highly acclaimed Masters of Reality, has worked in the studio with such notable bands as Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss and Stone Temple Pilots. Rockin' jams like "So It Goes," "More" and "Carpe Diem" are pulled down and balanced out by crunchy slow-burners like "Atomic Ritual" and "Out Of Your Head," leaving nothing but satisfaction in the end.

Nebula creates pure guitar-driven, conscious expanding rock for the 21st century and Atomic Ritual has everything you could want and need to start the ceremony. They are a culmination of their rock forbearers such as Jimi Hendrix, MC5, The Stooges, UCP (The Soundtrack Of Our Lives) and Mudhoney turned up a notch, taken to the next level and blasting through space. Nebula spread their gospel through their music and what they are preaching will leave the congregation on the floor.

The soundtrack has been written; let the Atomic Ritual begin. "Paradise is now."
