Psychedelic Rock Howlin Rain. Band Name Howlin Rain. Album Name Magnificent Fiend.

If Magnificent Fiend, the second album by Howlin Rain, sounds like a different band made the record, it's not the brown windowpane working its sickly magic on you, it's in many ways an accurate perception. Howlin Rain is Ethan Miller's side project when he's not playing with his "other band," Comets on Fire. HR's self-titled debut was released in 2006. It was well-received for its taut, simple song structures that evoked everything from the Grateful Dead to harder, more riff-laden big rock & roll power plays

Howlin Rain, the side project of Comets on Fire frontman Ethan Miller, are often posited as a blend of Comets' psychedelic rock and the more traditional AOR sounds of late 60s/early 70s hard blues acts. The issue, more so, is that on their second album, Magnificent Fiend, Howlin Rain make absolutely no attempt to incorporate Miller's sturdy noise background into their tracks, unless.

Magnificent Fiend is the second album from Howlin Rain. By turns pummeling and pastoral, it oscillates between roaring, all-stops-out, Hammond organ-driven tracks and delicate electric piano passages, topped by harmonized, often dissonant guitar lines. Toss in counter-melodic bass, sometimes quirky breaks, and extended instrumental sequences that are either ascending to the heavens or cascading softly, from the skies in sparkling showers of gunpowder and smoke.

Howlin' Rain is an American, San Francisco based band, which formed in 2004 and released their first album in 2006. Described as "classically soulful" Howlin' Rain are currently signed with Rick Rubin to the Columbia Records subset American Recordings. Subsequent releases by the band will be handled jointly between American Recordings and the indie label Birdman Records.

Howlin Rain, Magnificent Fiend. Ethan Miller spent much of the past decade fronting Comets on Fire, one of the planet's most cacophonous psychedelic avant-rock bands, and many of the personnel he recruited for Howlin Rain can boast similarly ear-bashing past form. There's some crossover with those tendencies here, but Howlin Rain exist more as a paean to grand, golden-toned rock of the rootsy, 1970s Allman Brothers school. True to that spirit, the first big guitar solo arrives within the first minute, backed up by a heady swirl of Hammond organ and Miller's soul-man holler.
