Ephedra is an Instrumental Heavy Stoner Rock / River Rock Band from Zofingen Switzerland. www.ephedraband.ch is the Official Page.

„The Band takes us with the heaviness and the groove of bolt throwers drums, the sharp Flying V-based rhythm guitar and the chord based bass on a ride through different moods and colors of sound like “The Sinica Experience Part 2”. Over this clockwork- ticking and bulldozer rolling and Kyuss grooving sound thrones THE guitar like in the song “The forgotten one” Not just A guitar. She is the finisher, the sharpener of all edges, the grease between that massive grooving clockwork of a band.“ – martin ripsam metalegun 2016

„rocks precise and tremendous.  The ideal occasion for all stoner rock fans to shake their heads once again in a positive way.“ – regiolive march 2013
