Turned to Stone Chapter 4: Higher Selves is a split album by Spanish rock bands Saturna and Electric Monolith. It was released on April 15, 2022, by Ripple Music.
The album is the fourth installment in the Turned to Stone series, which features collaborations between two bands from the same scene. Saturna plays soulful, Southern-infused classic hard rock with gripping, soulful vocals, while Electric Monolith operates on an edgier, more psych-laden side of the 70s rock spectrum.
The album opens with Saturna's "Keep Me Tryin'", a driving hard rock song with soaring vocals from singer Sandra Sangiao. Electric Monolith follows with "By My Side", a dark and atmospheric track with heavy guitar riffs and driving drums.
The two bands continue to alternate tracks, with Saturna delivering more soulful rockers like "Following the Sun" and "Drowning", and Electric Monolith providing more intense psych-rock tracks like "So Lonely Drying" and "Nightmares".
The album closes with a cover of the classic rock ballad "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Saturna and Electric Monolith put their own unique spin on the song, creating a powerful and emotional rendition.
Turned to Stone Chapter 4: Higher Selves is a great collaboration between two talented Spanish rock bands. It's a must-have for fans of classic hard rock, psych rock, and 70s rock in general.
