ALBUM PREMIERE: Calgary, Alberta’s Woodhawk deliver their riffmatronic new album "Beyond the Sun"


Fans of Black Sabbath, The Sword, Clutch, Truckfighters, Priestess, Mastodon,
Red Fang, Thin Lizzy take note, from the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains comes Calgary, Alberta’s Woodhawk. Masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry, the power trio released an EP in 2014 and have continued forging ahead. Made of equal parts 1970s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy metal royalty, Calgary trio Woodhawk are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.

In their brief existence, Guitarist Turner Midzain, bassist Mike Badmington and drummer Kevin Nelson have taken the stage at The Commodore Ballroom, as well as landed slots supporting Elder and The Shrine. Expect their upcoming album ‘Beyond the Sun’, recorded with Jesse Gander at Rain City Recordings to official drop on Friday 7th April, however you can stream this riffgasmic riffmatron only here at your no1 riff station, The Sludgelord.  Check it out below, drool bibs are advised.  You can preorder/buy the album here
