Lizzard Wizzard – Lizzard Wizzard

Lizzard Wizzard – Lizzard Wizzard
Self released - 2013
Rock, Doom, Stoner, Sludge
Rated: ****

Except for the drummer the rest of the quartet all take on some of the vocal duties. Something I always applaud and especially when they’re very different and abundant. But the Brisbane, Australian foursome Lizzard Wizzard don’t even need them. For their massive doom grooves and grimy stoner sludge does all the talking for them. Their screams and howls even seem to interfere a little on one or two occasions with the awesome doom march that we partake on. For on their self-titled debut effort the riffs and rhythms are of a legendary nature. They are wild and boisterous; while slow and precise even though the ever-present fuzz might seem to grind it all down to loose cement. It isn’t. It is rock-solid and with pure evil fun. These movie-loving freaks seem to have actually found some moves Sleep forgot to include on their masterpiece. And any Game Of Thrones fan out there will surely love their take on the intro. So grab a twenty-sided dice or two and get on the board with this incredible self-proclaimed turn based stoner doom band…
