ROADBURN MAGAZINE
Sophomore album from ill-fated Detroit space lords.

"Deeper High" is the sophomore album from the ill-fated Novadriver, out of Detroit. Their stunning debut, "Void", released in 2001, was a twisting, turning hard rock/psychedelic riff-rock extravaganza, and it fused the effective simplicity of "Detroit Rock" [think Iggy, MC5 etc.] with interstellar psychedelica [think Hawkwind, Kyuss]. Internal disputes led to the departure of singer Mark Miers; the band couldn't find a proper replacement over the past few years, and their struggle to break in a several vocalists led to cancelled tours and lost opportunities.

Novadriver - Deeper High Fortunately, "Deeper High" marks the return of Mike Miers, and his distinctive, soaring voice is among the high points of the album. The same can be said for the songs; grabbing your attention with massive, high octane fuelled riffs, and then fleshing things out with acid-induced guitar leads. This is one helluva cosmic freak-out, pairing classic psychedelica to groove-laden, heavy rock. "Deeper High" will force the listener to indulge oneself in serious amounts of mind-altering substances, or at least make them feel like they did.

It seemed Novadriver was set for a bright return on the scene, but, unfortunately disaster has stuck. The sudden death of bassist James B. Anders, the band's driving force behind all the songs and lyrics, casts a dark shadow over the band and the release of this enthralling album - life is very hard hard for Novadriver.
