Wo Fat: The Conjuring

Five albums in and Texas act Wo Fat have made it crystal clear what their mission is, and that is to deliver big, fat mountains of swampy stoner riffs & grooves for any fan of heavy music. Don't be fooled by the fact that The Conjuring only contains five tunes, as these are all lengthy epics chock full of some of the most psychedelic, beefy riffs around. The title track packs all the punch of vintage Black Sabbath but with a spacey twist that wouldn't sound out of place on a Monster Magnet record, while "Read the Omens" hits hard with mean intent, monster fuzz riffs and wah-wah solos like a head on collision between ZZ Top & Down just piercing your jugular. If that ain't enough, how about the behemoth bass & guitar death march of "Pale Rider From the Ice", an undulating, throbbing slice of lethal fuzz that just grabs your entire body, takes hold of it, and smashes it into oblivion with slow, ponderous strikes. It's a 7-minute ride you won't soon forget. Oh wait, there's more! How about the upbeat, Southern fried raunchy blues-metal of "Beggar's Bargain", or the closing 17-minute cavalcade of fuzzy wah-wah inflected riff-o-rama that is "Dreamwalker"? Sounds like a fun batch of stoner rock doesn't it? Well, it sure as hell is. Wo Fat are quickly building a name for themselves on the scene, and this latest release sees Kent Stump (guitar, vocals), Tim Wilson (bass), and Michael Walter (drums, backing vocals) doing what they do best, but kicking it up a notch just in case you weren't paying attention.

In summary, if you love extended, psychedelic riff fests, you have absolutely come to the right place. Spark up what you got and settle down for some heavy, heavy sounds.
