Violent Sagas of the Ancients
“There was a point in ‘60s rock where garage turned psychedelic for millions of bands in American basements, and REPTIEL reproduce that point with loving accuracy and detail. They get back to the source of the stuff that became the overblown prog-rock of the ‘70s, and show that there was actually a beauty in music inspired by inventiveness rather than self-indulgence.

SAN FRANCISCO — Cubby Control Records enthusiastically announces the release of REPTIEL’s Violent Sagas of the Ancients, their new mini-album epic of conflagration, conjuration, and invocation spanning the ages. Violent Sagas of the Ancients is REPTIEL’s sophomore effort, building on and expanding the Indie Psych Prog Rock of its predecessor, the eponymous REPTIEL, which coincidentally was described by FLABmag as like “sailing across the high seas encountering adventures, but in a Viking’s ship.”
Violent Sagas of the Ancients was recorded and mixed by Elton Cunniffe at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco, CA, during 2012; was mastered by Thee More Shallows and Fops headman David Kesler at his historic infomercial production suite in San Francisco, CA; and was post-mastered by Jason Gonzales at the SoAr Sound Shack in San Francisco, CA.
REPTIEL is Alec Way (occasional collaborator with Hans-Joachim Roedelius), Brian Weaver (founder of Cubby Control Records), Jason Gonzales (one-time multi-instrumentalist with Thee More Shallows and The Cubby Creatures), and Jason Yakich (former lead guitarist of San Francisco conspiro rockers Thee Druggles).
In addition to promoting Violent Sagas of the Ancients, REPTIEL is preparing to enter the studio again to record a fantasy rock epic they’ve written, tentatively titled Hobbitozz (The Land That Never Was).
