Polymerase announces the details of upcoming album

The Philippines-based stoner/psych outfit Polymerase announces the details of upcoming album “Dreams & Realities I” which will be released on February 3rd via Electric Talon Records, Sliptrick Records and Bear’s Den Records.

Polymerase introduces the masses to a new type of outlook on daily life, its sound can be summarized as an other-worldly outlook on what the naked eye would perceive as regular life. The band provided fans with a sneak peak of its philosophy via the artwork which the band claims is the whole concept of the album itself as well as the single “Evil Hand”.

“Evil Hand” plays a key part in the concept of “Dreams & Realities I”. The central character of the story, represented by the astronaut (or the sage) is faced with an “Evil Hand”, a representation of all the negative emotions and persuasions of the human species.

“Dreams & Realities I” will show what Polymerase represents within the stoner/psych landscape – a renewal of the roots of the genre and a fresh tribute to its pioneers Black Sabbath, Sleep, and Electric Wizard!
