Wizard Smoke - Live Rock In Hell

Label: Self Released
Year: 2009

I must preface by saying that this record was provided by the band for free download, so you can be guilt-free in your piracy.

Also, I will say, this record admittedly belongs on Colostomy Grab-Bag (or Sludge Swamp), but I think we can all equally rock out to these blasts of stoner doom. Plus, the make-up of this band was spawned from some local Atlanta/Athens, math rock types. Dudes from bands like Maserati, Cassavetes, and Dust Rabbit among others. You've probably never heard of any of those bands, because you probably don't live in the greater Atlanta metro area, so you'll just have to take my word for their pedigree.

Back to Wizard Smoke.
If you could take the wall of sound generated by Electric Wizard, some of Matt Pike's cyclic riffing, some of Sword's southern fried solos, and a little bit of the general thunder boogie of Skullfuzz, then you'll be in the right wheelhouse. Suffice it to say, this is heavy metal. If you don't like heavy metal, then you won't want to get too involved in this one. If you think heavy metal is a good time, then I would suggest getting into some of this dirge rock.
