Royal Thunder – Wick


Royal Thunder – Wick
Spinefarm – 2017
Rock, Hard, Stoner, Psych
Rated: ****

Wick, the new Royal Thunder has been spinning regularly for a while now. And our love for the band that started with CVI, went through a small dip with Crooked Doors, is now blossoming once again. For on Crooked Doors they looked back and searched the remnants of a romance wrecked for anything artistically usable. There have been a lot of breakup albums over the course of musical history, but Crooked Doors never quite got there. On Wick, they make their ambitions known and look to a future, which is undoubtedly filled with fast paced stoner concrete as well as slow heartfelt little miracles. And it’s during those moments when the true beauty of Royal Thunder shows itself best. A Mlny Parsonz that not just howls like the best, powerful, raw and voluminous. But also clean as whistle and deeply evocative.  And whether they opt to go mysterious and psychedelic or fill your head with vertiginous riffs and wild colors, guitar player Josh Weaver shows itself master of every facet and shows himself to be one of the great ones. Versatile and Wicked! This is Royal Thunder, exactly the way we love them!
