This reading week has quickly turned into shit-I-have-so-much-crap-to-get-done week, hence the lack of posts. But now is the time for riffage and with my stomach full of midnight snack (Read: Cake) let us worship Satan through the musical styling of Fellwoods.
This Portland, Oregon quartet bring you steaming servings of occult and psychedelically flavored rock and roll to pollute your ear holes. Their sound is a equal combination of devil worshiping witch music, riff rock swagger and distortion fueled rock ‘n’ roll. Very much in the veins of The Devils Blood, Fellwoods keep their occultism from getting to pretentious by drenching it in copious amounts of fuzz and distortion.
However, the drenching of fuzz is not a crush you skull in drenching, it merely serves to make the music sound even more organic and raw. Like a group of witches and druids found abandoned instruments in a black wood somewhere and then figured rock ‘n’ roll sounds way better than chanting. Sprinkle in some suitably creepy interludes that bring forth images of pulsating swamps and abandoned graveyards as well as a generous helping of cowbell, you’ve got the recipe for making me one very happy panda.
So if your in the market for some psychedelically stoner jams you can pick this album up for $6.66 on Bandcamp (All proceeds go directly to Satan). Got your links right below.
