TRACK PREMIERE: self proclaimed "sword and sorcery doomers" HAZE MAGE cast a spell with "Bong Witch"

Forged in late 2015, HAZE MAGE create riff-driven, anthemic fantasy metal that transports listeners to a world of ancient dark forests, savage beasts, and gloomy landscapes engulfed by a menacing miasma of haunting haze. HAZE MAGE weaves their fantasy world through lyrics and sound that draw inspiration from many sub genres of metal including Black Sabbath, Queens Of The Stone Age, The Sword, Clutch, High On Fire, and Sleep to create what they have dubbed “sword and sorcery doom.”

Having quickly gained attention in the Baltimore metal scene thanks to their exuberant and thundering stage shows, HAZE MAGE first caught the ear of local label and friends, Grimoire Records, in the summer of 2016. In 2017, Grimoire recorded and released the band’s “Blood Mist” debut EP to critical praise

On the 19/04/2019 2019, HAZE MAGE will release their first full-length album titled “Chronicles” again through Grimoire Records and it represents an expansion of the fantasy world created in their debut EP. The album and its concept have been in development since 2017 as part of an even broader narrative yet to come. Each song introduces a new character or piece of lore for the listening adventurers to encounter.

Today at THE SLUGELORD you can check out a brand new track entitled “Bong Witch”, so if you like the idea of grooving stoner rock with Danzig esque vocals, you’re gonna love this.  We think the band is rad and well worthy of your time.  So crank it up loud and watch your speakers die.  Preorders for “Chronicles” are being taken HERE
