Right Sludge Fans. Before I rush off to see the mighty Kyuss Lives at Nottingham Rock City tonight. I am going to do one article for the day.
And its the brilliant Wizard Smoke. Wizard Smoke is a 5 Piece Doom/Stoner/Sludge/Psych Metal Band from Atlanta Georgia.
The members are:
Jizz'n James Halcrow
The guys released their first release in 2009 entitled Live Rock in Hell for free download from their official website. It got some brilliant reviews from all the Doom/Sludge fans. And its hard not to see why. 5 tracks that run for 28 mins in total. Showed the band's intent, purpose and huge talent from the start. Download it now!!!
Well in 2011 the guys have just released their brilliant new full length album The Speed Of Smoke for free download as well from the same website. And the guys have kindly offered it for free download in two versions. The 320K Version or the 192K Version. The Vinyl and Cassette Version will be released end of April 2011.
The Speed Of Smoke is a fucking amazing record. No doubt about that. Its loud, heavy, doomy, sludgy, psych and has some brilliant guitar solos.
The whole band play excellent Doom/Stoner/Sludge Metal music through out the albums 46 minute running time. There is only 6 songs on this album. And nearly all of the tracks run past the 6 or 7 minute mark.
The vocals are delivered in true doom metal style.
Track 3 of the album Weakling is a 8 minute journey into the unknown. My fave track on the entire album. As it goes through many styles of metal in just one song. Doom, Psych, Stoner and Sludge.
How the hell these guys are un-signed is beyond me. As this destroys all major league Doom Metal Records out there. If a label is out there. Sign these guys.
This is an album that is a contender for my Album Of The Year. Simply Brilliant Stuff. Along with other amazing bands already published on this blogspot.
Add these guys to the ever expanding list of must have albums to own this year. Just download both releases as its some of the best Doom/Stoner/Sludge music out there.
These guys are definitely ones to look out for if any future releases are like their extraordinary new full length album. Check them out on the links below:
