The Obelisk Orion Review and Stream

"they benefit greatly from the open creativity on display in Orion‘s tracks and from that sense of exploration of their sound and their dynamic. It would be a great third LP, but factoring in that this is their first, Orion is even more impressive for the cohesion that so clearly rests beneath all that exploration and the skill with which the band walks the line between the two. No question it will stand among the best debuts of 2016."

Sound Fiction "Orion Subsiding" Track Preview

"we are pleased to be streaming a new track from the record titled “Orion Subsiding”, which takes listeners on a subdued, mellowed out musical journey with haunting vocals and atmospheric tendencies. As the track progresses, it crescendos into a loud, arena blasting anthem before ultimately becoming subdued once again, ending how it started. Check out the track for yourself below and you can pre-order the album now."

Rock The Best Orion Review

" "Sleeps on A Vine"  is fucking hypnotizing, engulfing you in a crescendo instrumental and rhythmic which finishes with another explosive sandy storm. To highlight the vocal timbre of  Sean McVay  plunking down to  Ozzy Osbourne , one of his idols to be sure.  "Kerosene"  has a lot of 'groove' rhythmic guitar but it is still another great song of  Heavy Psych 70's  of good.  "Down from the Sky "  lowers the excessiveness 'Fuzz' for acoustic delight us with a good melody. The  "Planet Caravan"  particularly these  King Buffalo ..." - translated from spanish

Thy Demons be Scribbin Orion Review

"This album is fantastic and I've listened to it several times in the past couple of days. Honestly, I've had a hard time getting the rest of my reviews done for this week because I keep wanting to come back to this album. Bias got me to listen once but the fact it's fantastic has me on about my 20th spin in the last 72 hours or so. I could go through each track individually but the fact is they're all good, they all alternate between big fat grooves and trippy progressive grooves and there isn't a song I've skipped over at any point yet. The only hard part of this review is picking just one or two tracks to call my favorite, they're all f'ing great! "

Echoes and Dust Orion Review

"For a debut album this is highly impressive stuff, which leaves us wanting more. It’s a fulfilling listen with zero filler (highly remarkable for stoner rock) and works as a whole too. King Buffalo have a sound in their heads and they are prepared to stick to their guns in delivering it. That they have succeeded is a welcome sing and we can only hope they continue in this vein. Say hello to the new kids in town, they’ve got a real treat in store for you here."

Sludgelord Orion Review

"King Buffalo’s music is concise but it’s also psychedelic and free. Each note is hit with diligence, the builds take their time to unfold and every moment of these 45 minutes contributes something to the greater picture.  “Drinking from the River Rises” summarizes “Orion” neatly and therefore makes for a solid conclusion to this very impressive debut"
