A tale's power lies entirely in its telling, and The Brothers Keg are storytellers with the mightiest of pens: loud, heavy music. On the United Kingdom trio's debut album Folklore, Myths and Legends of The Brothers Keg, sharp and vivid tones flow like spilt ink from the band's hands, rendering an unpredictable concept album that delivers psychedelic stoner rock and doom across a multitude of tempos and timbres. One of the few constants on the album is the ever-exceptional riff-crafting and immense tones, which the band uses to tell a wild story about a mythological re-imagining of themselves, and they do so with a sense of impact that's staggering. With a vinyl release finally on the horizon, we're pleased to share a new music video from the band for the hypnotic stoner odyssey "Brahman," which you can watch below.

Opening up with a chanted mantra and an Eastern-influenced droning, monstrous constructions of titanic fuzz quickly follow. Coupled with creative lead guitar explorations, it creates a psychedelic, kaleidoscopic trance that seems to be eternally unfolding. At thirteen minutes long, there's more than enough time to fully sink into that state of mind, and the next full track (after a brief ambient interlude) switches gears into a sludgy beatdown, having accomplished what they needed to here. Folklore, Myths and Legends of The Brothers Keg is more of a conceptual anthology than a single fable: each chapter here has its own appeal, and "Brahman" is perhaps the most mesmerizing.

Band member Tom Hobson (guitars, vocals, synths) comments:

"Brahman" is my absolute favourite song to play live. It came almost fully formed into my mind after a weekend of psychedelic adventure at Supernormal festival at Braziers Park in Oxfordshire, as if it was downloaded into my head by aliens, or part of a mystic vision. It’s a song about the eternal force of creation, I suspect. The opening chant is the Gayatri Mantra and we play with a drone in the root note throughout the song. There are other nods to eastern religion and music throughout. It’s a straight forward transcendent blissed-out hippy doom jam that channels the eternal creative force of life and music.
