Great Rift is a four headed Heavy-Psych Rockband, born 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

 

In February 2017 the band recorded their debut EP named "Voodoowoodland",  released on "Electric Fire Records".

 

In June 2018 followed their first full lenght album named "Vesta",  released  on the Viennese labels "Electric Fire Records" and "StoneFree Records".

 

The sound of Great Rift is modern and fresh, but strongly reminiscent of the heavy blues, hard- and psychedelic rock of the 70s, coupled with distinctive, unique vocals.

La Habitación 235 about "Vesta":

Un adelanto, una promesa, una esperanza, una garantía como StoneFree Records, el debut larga duración de los austriacos Great Rift... ¡¡ Un cierre magnífico para el jueves !!

 

Con el precinto de garantía de StoneFree Records, cuando escuchábamos sus primeros avances, creíamos ciegamente en encontrar con otro de los armazones de este 2018. Buena mezcla de stoner/doom tan arenoso como las dunas que atraviesa este "Vesta", un arranque prometedor para este cuarteto austríaco llamado Great Rift, con aires de grandeza para el presente curso.

 

 

 

Bucky Brown from Ripple Music about "Vesta":

When you listen to countless new albums every damn day it gets rarer that something just blows your mind out of nowhere. Well it happened today as I finally got to this new album by Great Rift from Austria. Incredible!

RePeAt!!!

 

 

 

Doom Heart about "Vesta":

From Wien, Austria, here you are fabulous 70's rock inspired heavy psychedelic blues stoner doom band Great Rift with a wonderful song off their incoming full-length "Vesta", co-released June 22nd by Electric Fire Records and StoneFree Records!

 

 

 

Roberto Lucas from DempaFuzz about "Vesta":

EL próximo 22 de junio se publicará via StoneFree Records y Electric Fire Records, "VESTA" el primer álbum de la formación austriaca Great Rift Temas que se estructuran con comienzos enérgicos de hard rock con acento stoner desértico, que van decayendo a espacios heavy-psych. Todo con el color que le da su vocalista Thomas Gulyas con su particular registro y estilo.
