Number 8


Number 8

Dunsmuir on Number 9, has been on repeat ever since our renewed acquaintance. And with a definite moment of pain we move on to the next band. But only for a moment ofcourse. For the cats on Number 8 have been riding high on the Stoner HiVe Top 20 Countdown with many of their earlier releases, and it was only logical this one would make it as well. Number 1 in 2014. Number 13 in 2012. Number 8 in 2009 and now once again in 2016. Swampedelic as ever, it is their blues rock based heavy psychedelic doom and stoner metal sounds that we simply can’t live without. It is heavier, darker and doomier than ever before. But just as epic and just as grand. There is absolutely nothing wrong with his album or out of place. Or perhaps, perhaps, track two should have opened the record. Cause it shines through like a true mission statement. ‘We live by the old ways, we know what came before. Build ourselves a purple haze. We are the Riffborn’. Right on! It’s all happening man. It’s all happening!



Wo Fat - Midnight Cometh

  1. Killer album, killer band. Nothing but absolute top quality releases and long may it continue.
    Kent Stump is about as good as it gets as a guitarist for the heavyness and the rhythym section are no slouches either.

  2. I really love Wo Fat, but this latest album was not my favorite. To me it is a little too much "jam" and long-drawn out repetition, I would have preferred more focused songs.
