Fucking Wrath,The: Season of Evil

Holy fuzz! The first thing you are going to say after hearing the opening instrumental track "Ride The Lighter" from this band is "they remind me of Black Sabbath!" That is the most consistent influence found in the majority of the songs and I am sure the band would be quite pleased with that analogy. After hearing "To The Eels" you will start to notice a Mastodon influence characterizing their overall feel and lyrical perspective. The pace starts to pick up a little and that adds a surprise because just when you think it is going to be a pure stoner doom album it changes it up. This is also one of the issues with this disc. Sometimes it's as though they are almost dedicating individual songs to a respective influence. All one has to do is blow away the smoke screen and you can clearly see it. Interestingly enough, the band makes mention of a Metallica influence and I am thinking Metallica? Indeed, it's there as "The Defeater" has a sludged out version of the "Fight Fire with Fire" riff that I just would have never imagined. And speaking of imagining…When listening to this short disc in full you start to get images of some earthy drifters who have finally come out to see the world after having spent a lifetime in the hills somewhere outside of nowhere.

I think you probably get the idea that this is about lighting up, getting inside and banging on your instruments. What the band has to watch out for is that they don't get too absorbed in their own folly and that seems to be the case here. You have to have a more relaxed and less serious disposition to truly appreciate this and a good bag of weed would probably allow you to be forgiving enough to call this awesome. Well, until the buzz wore off anyway.
