Temple of The Fuzz Witch - EP (2017)

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, for today you stand in the Temple Of The Fuzz Witch! Within these hallowed halls, three disciples of darkness send wicked stoner/doom rippling through the night. The band's debut release, which you can simply call "EP", offers up a trio of tracks that live up to the band's moniker by channeling the spirit of stoner/doom staples like Sleep and Electric Wizard. It's a headbanging, heavy groove snaking its way through the gloom here, leaving a thick trail of pungent smoke in its wake along with a touch of melancholy and a few bluesy trips and licks along the way. Each song seems to be soaked in more reverb than the last, so as the EP goes on it feels as though you're becoming more entangled in a spell, falling deeper and deeper into an effervescent shadow - but given how these jams sound, I'm not sure you'd ever want to come out of it! When all three of these dudes hit the rhythm together with guitar, bass, and drums it feels like you're being assaulted by an ogre's club - just being slowly mashed by a monstrous force. They're definitely driving some dark sounds into my ear holes and I love it! Rumor has it that Temple of the Fuzz Witch have some new stuff in the works - I'm looking forward to it! -Brandon
