As soon as I seen the cover I thought this as got to be worth checking out, and boy was it worth it. This absolutely rocks and should be a hit around the the world. Not a single bad track on the album. Money very very well spent
Portugal’s foremost heavy rock and rollers Miss Lava return in 2016 with Sonic Debris, their third album, to be launched on May 20th, 2016 worldwide through Small Stone Records.
Sonic Debris witnesses the band exploring new sonic landscapes and an open and inclusive creative process. Throughout, they design explosive sound textures, get high on psychedelic asteroids and unleash obscure beasts. The album is a sonic voyage with a diversity beyond anything yet evidenced by the band.
The new album follows Red Supergiant (2013) and Blues for the Dangerous Miles (2009) – named by Loud Magazine as one of the top five Portuguese albums of the year – and a limited edition self-titled blood red vinyl EP (2008).
Miss Lava has brought their explosive presence to stages in the UK, Spain and Germany and played slots at festivals like Stoned from the Underground (Germany), Stonefest (Spain), as well as Super Bock Super Rock, Rock in Rio Lisboa (Vodafone Stage), Reverence Valada, Vagos Open Air, Barroselas Metal Fest and Faro Bike Meeting in their home country. In addition to having traveled to play an exclusive one-off at the legendary Whisky a Go-Go in Los Angeles, the band has shared stages with Queens of the Stone Age, Metallica, Mastodon, Slash & Friends, Graveyard, Ufomammut, Greenleaf, W.A.S.P., Kyuss Lives!, Fu Manchu, Valient Thorr, Entombed, Meshuggah, Truckfighters, Barn Burners and Year Long Disaster.
Previous videos featured on MTV Portugal, and with Sonic Debris, Miss Lava expect to launch a series of singles and videos to promote the album and announce many European dates throughout 2016 and 2017.

Holy smite. Phew. Umm.. Could I hear the album just once more?
Simply mesmerizing, which ends far too quickly, if judging by accounting mere experience. .flac on loop does not disappoint my fellow stoners. I really don't have anything sensible to say. I'll just hit play again. Cheerio. modifier
SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Harry Harrison
Among the best heavy rock bands in existence today. The guitar tones are so awesome! So heavy! And the vocals are perfectly suited to the mean fuzz. The drumming is done just right, too. Not overdone, just a good pummelling. Love it! Thank you, 1000mods! 9/10. Alrihkh
