"...Wasted Theory plays their own version of heavy stoner metal with some 70's swagger, bluesy undertones, mixed with some deep-fried southern doom, and topped with some diesel-laced mountain rock for good measure…" Yea, that sounds about right.

Wasted Theory’s debut album is a stirring mix of Southern Metal, Hard Rock and Stoner Metal riffs. If you’re a fan of Black Label Society, Down and Crowbar then you’re in luck as their debut album – Death And Taxes – is a hard rocking affair jam-packed with monstrous riffs.

Tracks such as Hellfire Ritual, Boogie On Pony Boy, Celestial Voodoo embrace the Southern Rock/Metal vibe that plays out like a soundtrack to a classic western movie. You can feel the pummelling riffs coming at you from your speakers as the riffs are blazing hot with anger and fury. There maybe some Zakk Wylde guitar worship going on here and there but when it's this good who freakin cares.. Just soak up the excellent music that Wasted Theory have in store for you.

Wasted Theory are on fire through out as they leave no stone unturned in entertaining the hell out of you from start to finish. This album is becoming a firm favourite within the Stoner Metal community and on this evidence it's not hard to see why. Wasted Theory will take you on an action packed ride that will make you feel you're living life on the edge.

My advice is – Buy This Album Now as it's an excellent album showcasing a band who know how to ROCK!!!

Awesome Stuff!!!
