STRETCH GOAL $20,000

We are making additional rewards available to current backers.

Black Sabbath was single handedly responsible for heavy metal with the release of their debut studio album titled "Black Sabbath" on February 13, 1970. Black Sabbath has influenced and been responsible for inspiring more metal and doom artists and recordings then perhaps Satan himself.

Magnetic Eye Records and our friends from the global heavy music community are coming together to pay tribute to Black Sabbath by recording and releasing a Redux of their fourth studio album, Vol. 4. 

As life long lovers of Sabbath, we at Magnetic Eye Records take our role of introducing new listeners and music lovers to classics redone and reimagined in their entirety. As intended by the artists themselves.

To date, we have launch and successfully delivered Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland", Helmet's "Meantime", and Pink Floyd's The Wall as Redux recordings with contributions from recording artists such as Earthless, All Them Witches, Elder, Ken Mode, Earthship, F*ck the Facts, Mark Lanegan, The Melvins, Summoner, Elephant Tree, Pallbearer, ASG and many others.

We have a few artists invited to join us in this project and we will begin announcing contributors late in our Kickstarter campaign.

Please join us in reimagining and honoring the legacy and legend that is Black Sabbath with our Various Artists - Vol. 4 Redux release!

Okay, so nearly a week slipped by in which I did not have time to get to a desktop computer and do an update on the Kickstarter. So, here we go, a summary of the progress we have made in the past 6 days in creating the right mix of bands to pay proper tribute to Black Sabbath's Vol. 4 record. 

First, you need to know that legendary heavy metal band The Obsessed lead by Scott “Wino” Weinrich has been confirmed as participating in the label’s reimagining Black Sabbath’s heavy metal classic, Vol. 4. Sick!

UPDATE 4. FRIDAY/SATURDAY, MARCH 1/2, 2019. HIGH REEPER! & COVER ARTIST ALYSSA MOCERE!  ANNOUNCED.

High Reeper Joins Vol. 4 Redux
High Reeper Joins Vol. 4 Redux

from STONED MEADOW OF DOOM ON YOUTUBE

Formed in 2016, High Reeper is made up of Zach Thomas, Napz Mosley, Andrew Price, Pat Daly and Shane Trimble. Originally started as just a studio band, it rapidly became apparent that these songs were meant to be heard live and loud. The band made their debut in the Philly/DE stoner rock scene in early 2017 with success which was followed up by the recording of their self-titled debut in May. With a sound deeply rooted in modern stoner rock while still giving a nod to the earliest Sabbath records, High Reeper's first offering is driven by pounding rhythms, thick guitars and soaring, screeching vocals.   High Reeper’s self titled debut is an unapologetic punch to the face for fans of early ‘70s proto-metal. The sound and smell of leather, weed, boozing, gambling and death permeate the record from start to finish. Nine tracks that run from uptempo straight ahead rock, to slowed down, heavy, early doom. With a rhythm section throwing down grooves that are deeper than the darkest abyss and guitars big enough to put a hole in your chest, the record’s finale hits just as hard as its opening track. Vocals that soar above the guitars with laser like precision, while delivering a direct hit to your soul.   1.  Die Slow - 0:00 2.  Chrome Hammer - 5:28 3.  Soul Taker - 8:21 4.  High Reeper - 11:49 5.  Reeper Deadly Reeper - 16:25 6.  Weed and Speed - 22:33 7.  Double Down and Let It Ride - 28:09 8.  Black Leather - 32:49 9.  Friend Of Death - 36:18  Support High Reeper by purchasing the album here https://heavypsychsoundsrecords.bandc... https://www.heavypsychsounds.com/shop... https://www.facebook.com/HIGHREEPER/ https://www.facebook.com/HEAVYPSYCHSO...  Support the continued funding of this channel, become a Patreon https://www.patreon.com/MeadowOfDoom  Check out Stoned Meadow Of Doom 2 for more excellent full albums! - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkqj...  Stoned Meadow Of Doom Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/StonedMeadow...  Join the SMOD Nation Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/18844...  Our annual music festival SMOD Fest is coming soon.  Like the page on Facebook for important updates you don't want to miss! https://www.facebook.com/smodfest/
