Wo Fat are a band from Texas that plays a very heavy form of stoner rock and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Conjuring" which will be released by Small Stone.
Distorted sounds and drones start off the album along with some powerful sounding bass guitars and spoken word samples which leads to the music going into a heavier direction which is very close to doom metal and the band also brings in some 70's style retro rock guitar leads and solos.
Once vocals are added in the music they are very melodic sounding blues rock style clean singing and you can hear a great amount of psychedelic sound effects being utilized in the background and all of the tracks a re very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of slide guitars being brought into on of the tracks and they enhance the blues rock feeling of the recording and the last track is almost 20 minutes long and has the feeling of an improv jam at times.
Wo Fat create some very heavy riffs and jams with their own style of stoner rock/metal as well as adding a sound that takes the best of classic and retro rock but done in a more modern fashion as well as having the heaviness of doom metal, the production sounds very professional and powerful while the lyrics cover dark, metaphysical, occult and shamanism themes.
In my opinion Wo Fat are a very great sounding stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Conjuring" and "Beggar's bargain". 8 out of 10.
