General Information.

Hazemaze is a 70’s infused stoner-rock band hailing from the middle of Sweden, surrounded by lakes and forest. In the depth of Mälardalen, the three piece summoned the forces of fuzz and heavy riffing in the spring of 2016. A combination of early doom-rock and psychedelic elements with a modern touch is what creates the bands heavy fuzz sound.

In the fall of 2017 they went up north to the city of Falun to record their first full length album. The self-titled studio album will be released in 2018 through Kozmik Artifactz.

General Information.

The Wichita fuzzers managed to birth an album that comes on like a churning maelstrom of sound, and continues to punch listeners in the face with a heavy sound that mimics the stoner rock of yore, but is also undeniably their own. This album was made for vinyl, and we can’t wait to lower that needle down on what may be one of the more celebrated releases of this year.

Kansas trio Snowchild throw stoner, psych, blues and hard rock into a big melting pot, chuck in a big dollop of groove and serve it molten hot! Amazing blend of doom styles , yet always maintaining a Sabbath vibe throughout. I also am reminded of Pallbearer at times. This reminds me of the first few Sahg records, but with a tiny bit more doom and quite a bit more blues elements. Like Sahg meets Cream. There is an awesome organ part in track 2, even though Snowchild seems to be and sounds like a power trio. Superb stuff – Stoned Meadow of Doom

Thick as mud, yet as crystal clear as a super moon on a cloudless night, Snowchild releases Age of Change in a haze of fuzzed out psychedelic doom rock – WEAREWICHITA.COM

Be Drunk
By Charles Baudelaire

“You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: “It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish.”

….

A wonderful poem by Baudelaire that captures the whole point of existence and therefore just as precise captures the soul of this band. This is pure speculation of course and should be regarded as alternate facts.

General Information.

The Ugly Kings are four powerhouse blues rockers drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical background. They offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues. The catchy riffs and foot stomping rhythm lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.

Having 1 mini-album (Of Sins) under their belt already, they are thrilled to sign with Kozmik Artifactz for the release of their debut full length album in early 2018. The Ugly Kings have supported Airbourne on their successful sold out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews. They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne during the Black Sabbath ‘The End’ World Tour.

“What they delivered was something that I was not ready for. A sound that is almost indescribable. It’s as if a mash up of all my favourite artists had been put into a blender and formed this delicious power sludge bluesy stoner rock. Elements of the classics such as Led Zep, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sabbath, Danzig and a touch of Bowie were mixed in with the modern sounds of The White Stripes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Kylesa & Wolfmother. I was in heaven!” – Rogue, Inc.

“Loud, heavy, slightly-sludgy classic rock meets blues with a modern bend, played by a band that swaggered about the stage with a distinct, but subtle, air of cool. By the end, Sydney was more than happy to learn words on the fly and sing along when the front man held his mic over the mosh. The Ugly Kings are well-versed in the art of restraint, they know when to move and make the crowd get on their feet, and when to step back and let the music do the talking.” – Australian Guitar

“It’s not often you see a band have the crowd so excited and receptive by the second song in the way The Ugly Kings do with such an original sound. Only to be described as The Ugly Kings!” – Ryan O’Keefe (Airbourne Drummer)

“Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power.” – Joel O’Keefe (Airbourne Frontman & Lead Guitarist)

“Thick, groove induced chords, deep baritone vocals and a harden-the-fuck-up ethos” – Phantom’s Way

‘Promised Land, a four-minute beast that sounds like the Rival Sons and the Graveltones going head-to-head with John Bonham and Jim Morrison. With multiple riffs and deft twists and turns, it sounds fantastic..’ – SonicAbuse

For fans of The Doors, Jack White, Black Sabbath, The Black Keys, Royal Blood and Rival Sons.

General Information.

In a dark corner of an old dusty metal shop, alongside the menacing blasts of industrial age freight trains, that’s where the sound was forged…

Where the rusted steel of a bygone era meets the ancient spirits of legendary mountains, that’s where the reckoning came to be…

As a whole greater than it’s parts, a beacon arose from the valley below and brought forth a new sense of old ways and a recalibration of doctrine.

In other words…

Geezer lay down thick heavy grooves rooted in the tradition of pre-war slide guitar blues, while simultaneously breaking boundaries through sonic experimentation and improvisation.

2015 has been a year of milestones for Geezer. It all started with the worldwide release the highly acclaimed EP “Gage” on Ripple Music, followed by the release of “The Second Coming Of Heavy: Chapter One”. The first in a series of splits from Ripple Music, it combined Geezer’s heavy blues with the massive riffs of Borracho to create an instant classic.

Geezer also spent much of the year playing live, including a tour of the the American rust belt with Bison Machine. To date, Geezer has shared the stage with bands like Gozu, Wo Fat, Mos Generator, The Golden Grass, The Midnight Ghost Train and High On Fire, among others.

New material is in the works and preparations are being made for a new full length album to be released in Spring of 2016. Always moving forward and venturing into new sonic landscapes, 2016 promises to be the year that Geezer spreads their brand of heavy-psych-blues across the seas to an ever-expanding international audience.

The reviews tell the tale…

“Five tracks of heavy and hazy blues rock drift across desert sands, echoing through moonlit canyons under starry skies, a moreish Peyote for altering the minds of easy riders everywhere.”: Metal Hammer, April 2015

“Geezer’s EP is a work of genius. Stoner Rock of the highest order… Brilliant and highly recommended.” The Sludgelord

“The bass is a leviathan of low end rumble, the blues guitar forging molten riffs of iron and steel, and the drum work massive and purposeful.”: Heavy Planet

“It’s a powerful and soothing expression of nearly a hundred years of music placed upon an altar that a thousand giants built and cherished, and this one may stand the test of time in ways that will continue to define the genre for a long time to come. Yes, it’s that damn good.”: Russell Mullen @ The Ripple Effect

Always Heavy… Totally Righteous… Geezer

General Information.

“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)

¡PENDEJO! is a four-piece heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots, El Pastuso and Jaap ‘Monchito’ Melman started blending heavy riffage, pounding drums, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish about the weirdest stories in life, and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.

“Check the irony that one of the best Latin American bands I’ve heard isn’t Latin American.” (Vagabundo Espiritual)

‘Cantos a la Vida’, the band’s first full length album, was released in 2010 and got stunningly positive reviews, especially in Spanish speaking countries. Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito”.

“You really won’t believe your ears.” (Stan Novak, Aardschok)

During the following years, ¡Pendejo! played mostly in the underground scene throughout Europe and Latin America, putting on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chile con carne.

“Smoke, alcohol, humor, sex and ah!, Rock n Roll!” (Max Metal)

The band recorded its second album ‘Atacames’ (2014) with producer Pieter Kloos in The Void Studio in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This resulted in a daring album containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from melodramatic to outright aggressive.

“Gewinnt jeden Schwanzvergleich.” (Legacy)

In 2014-2016 the band did several tours in Europe. In October 2016 ¡PENDEJO! toured in South America again, including Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Currently the band is working on a new album, to be recorded in August this year.

General Information.

His Masters Voice call their style of music “The Devils Blues”. Listen to their 2014 album ‘Possession’ and you will hear influences from the greats of classic HEAVY rock but with a contemporary energy and relevance.

Musically and visually the band possess an inventive and original signature style that showcases the strength of their collective song writing, yet allows their individual talents to show through. His Masters Voice put everything into their live performance. To them, their audience comes first and that audience grows in number and dedication with every show.

Reviews:

“…Full of Led Zeppelin swag, they are smooth and easy on the ears. It’s hard not to get swept up in the moment and it’s never easy to fully capture to readers how great of a show they put on. Vocalist, Jesse Sorensen has the blues running through his veins, an old soul in a young man’s body that clearly lives and breathes what he does and it shows. A tight band that sound years above their average ages…”

Muzic.net

“Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is big time kick ass. Listening to them takes you on a journey like no other, both calming, trippy, hard hitting, fast paced and edgy. A must have in your music collection…”

Rock Bandom

“… I’m sick of it (blues) sounding so generic… (His Masters Voice’s music) it’s a breath of fresh air that I think has worldwide musical value”

– Zorran Mendonsa (Producer/Engineer)

The 13th Floor’s Tove Partington had this to say…

“… Everything you ever wanted from the love child of metal and dirty blues has come true with His Masters Voice. After only five shows, they have already made it to my ‘bands you must see before you die’ list…”

13th Floor

NZ Musician Album Review by Stu Edwards

“While His Masters Voice has harvested a classic sound, Follow Me Down dishes up a modern flavour that could comfortably stack up next to modern icons such Black Stone Cherry or Mastodon. Bonus live track Lucid Dream is a weighty eight minute insight into what the band are all about”

NZ Musician

NZM Fresh Talent – Clovis McEvoy

“Like a smouldering volcano, His Masters Voice have heaved into Auckland’s live music scene – and with just a two-week turnaround from stepping into the studio to the release of their debut EP, it would appear the band could erupt anytime…”

Quebec’s stoner rock band, influenced by the sounds of Pentagram, Black Sabbath and Kyuss, Whitenails adds a psychedelic touch to their EP First Trip. Heavy riffs are not lacking on this business card which has received a very positive critical reception. Add a very seventies visual and you have a band that quickly gets a top spot on the scene.

General Information.

If John Lee Hooker, Kyuss and Janis Joplin had a baby, can you imagine how ugly that little alcoholic infant would be? Fortunately, South Australian quartet Kitchen Witch can hold their liquor long enough to write some booty shakin’ bluesy stoner grooves.

In 2013, Kitchen Witch formed and hit the live circuit hard. They recorded the double A-side single “Shock/Beer Swilling Baby”.

2015 saw the release of the “Trouble” EP. The 5-track blues rock release has attracted over 10,000 plays on YouTube and was featured on the attached CD of globally distributed Classic Rock UK Magazine.

In 2016, Kitchen Witch recorded the darker “Back To The Mud” EP at Studio Finetime (Hydromedusa, Woe), showing a heavier side to the group that is evident in their live shows.

Recently, Kitchen Witch have signed with Kozmik Artifactz for an exclusive vinyl release featuring selected tracks taken from both EPs.

Kitchen Witch continue to go from strength to strength with a powerful twist of blues, gospel, roots, country, punk, 70’s rock and stoner doom.

“A very unique alt. blues sound, incredibly fun.” – themusic.com.au

“Zepplin, Kyuss, The Kills, Deap Vally all huffing the one monster spliff, riffing you a sweet stoner blues lullaby.” – Spoz’s Rant

“Full of soul and excellent execution” – MusicSA
