“There’s no question that Valley of the Sun are placing themselves at the forefront of the new generation of American heavy rock.”
– THE OBELISK

 

Valley of the Sun sound like one of those bands best experienced in a dive bar with sweat dripping off the walls – a perfect setting for the short, sharp shock of ‘The Hunt’, the QOTSA-esque jaunt of ‘Land of Fools’, where Ryan Ferrier’s huge vocals sound like Steven Tyler experiencing an exorcism.” – METAL HAMMER

Enigma Experience – Question mark

The Enigma Experience have announced the release of their debut album, Question Mark, which is coming out November 13th via Fuzzorama Records.

 

The band have also unveiled the brand-new single ‘Lonewolf’, which opens with a funky and psychedelically charged Primus-esque melody before dropping into a driving groove amid crunching riffs with soaring vocal melodies.

 

On the track, guitarist Niklas ‘Mr.Dango’ Källgren comments,

 ”The lyrics are about suffering from and handling the pressure of the world, and the expectations from society that push you into a corner when feel different. It’s about daring you to be yourself, to let your creativity loose and to live like you want to live – it’s your life.”

 

The band sees Sweden and Norway joins forces, as Truckfighters guitarist Niklas ‘Mr.Dango’ Källgren has teamed up with ex-Truckfighters/Witchcraft drummer Oskar ‘Pezo’ Johansson and Maurice Adams from Breed/Motorfinger on vocals.

 

The brainchild of Källgren, he also produced, engineered, mixed and mastered the album as well as playing bass and singing backing vocals.

 

The album comes on LP, CD and will also be available on a limited-edition vinyl in a very exclusive boxset with double vinyls with silkscreen printing, double gatefold, double posters and of course a nice box.

 

Question Mark is a very diverse rock record that opens with the ten-minute odyssey ‘Realityline,’ with vocal harmonies reminiscent of early 90s grunge heroes such as Soundgarden and Alice In Chains whilst elevating guitar lines weave over a pulsating backdrop of rhythm.

 

Elsewhere ‘In My Mind My Secret Place’ sees them slow things up with an ethereal acoustic atmosphere building into a hypnotically heavy and devastating end, whilst album closer ‘The Zone’ is a furiously catchy anthem with Kallgren’s trademark fuzz-fuelled sound piercing through.

Witchrider – Electrical Storm

WITCHRIDER – ELECTRICAL STORM –

On the new album “Electrical Storm”  that will see the light on Nov 13th the mixture of loud and heavy guitars with dark electronic elements and strong vocals will explode in the audiences faces and hearts like a tender strawberry smoothie blast from a catapult.

 

It’s ‘just’ been six years since the debut album so about time for the follow up, right 😉

Witchrider is a stoner / alternative rock group from Graz, Austria formed in 2012. The idea for the bandname was taken from sleep paralysis aka. “riding the witch”.

After the critical acclaimed debut album “Unmountable Stairs” the second full length record “Electrical storm” is finally on it’s way! We’ve been waiting for a long time and this masterpiece is worth it.  The album is truly a step forward with 13 smashing songs and not a dull moment this will take you on a very enjoyable musical journey.

The music is varied and has good melodies, mellow and uplifting tunes. Even if categorised as stoner rock the band is not one of the more heavy acts, they remind a bit of early Queens of the Stone Age with a lot of ‘catchy’ things going on!

Since releasing their first EP in 2013, they have been a vivid part of the European rock scene. Signing with “Truckfighters” own label Fuzzorama records just a year after and releasing their debut full length album in 2014. They also toured numerous times all across Europe with some of the best and coolest band in the genre.

The album comes on CD digipack, LP black and the limited LP splatter (just 100 copies).

Elden – Nostromo

Elden believes in the power of heavy metal riffs, melodic choruses and an all out head banging experience. Formed in 2012 in Karlstad, Sweden, the band started writing songs influenced by artists like Mastodon, Baroness, The Sword and classic bands from the 70´s and 80´s. They recorded and released their first demo one year later and performed on a regular basis at local venues. Come 2015, Elden released their first EP and started touring across the country.

Having built a small following of both local and international fans the band started developing their sound, taking their songwriting in an interesting direction – even heavier riffs, more distinct vocals and an overall more impressive production. Debut album “Death and Fear” hit the shelves in November 2016 and got fantastic reviews:

 

“Right from the opening song “Wermland” I was completely hooked, and now am having serious trouble turning this album off.” – Metal-temple.com

 

“…propulsive drumming, turbo-charged Sabbath riffs and vocals that are pure, 21st century Ozzy.” Stoner HiVe

 

“Eldens debut demo is a superb hard rocking affair from start to finish showing off the bands excellent talents. If you want a band with plenty of groove and riff then Elden are the band for you.” – The Sludgelord

 

After touring Sweden to support the latest album, Elden looked to perform outside their Nordic home. In the summer of 2018 the band got the opportunity to support Stoned Jesus in Zagreb, Croatia. This would be the bands biggest show to date and the response could not have been better.

The future is very much exciting for fans of Elden. Having been picked up by critically acclaimed label Fuzzorama Records, Elden will release their new album “Nostromo” on the 24th of January 2020. Inspired by the cold darkness of time and space, these are by far the best songs the band have written.

Swan Valley Heights – The Heavy Seed

A fat baby is born in Germany: The Heavy Seed, second album of Munich and Berlin based three-piece Swan Valley Heights. Ranging from three-minute-long instrumental bangers with no other intention than smashing heads to massive psych journeys that almost reach the quarter-hour mark; from big, ugly dissonances to acoustic guitar driven beach vibes – this eclectic piece of fuzzrock found its right home on Fuzzorama Records, even being mixed and mastered by no other than Truckfighters’ Mr. Dango.

Releasing their debut album back in 2016, which was praised as “of biblical proportions” (Heavy Planet) and “the perfect stoner rock / heavy psych album” (More Fuzz), Swan Valley Heights quickly found their booth within the scene. Heavy, unique riffing and a semi-serious take on stoner rock’s clichés are fusing with a fascination for the psychedelic aesthetics and big spaces of the many branches the genre has to offer.

Swan Valley Heights has been labeled progressive stoner, psychedelic fuzzrock and space grunge, birthing music that is far away from simply riding standard patterns into oblivion.

Five-track beast The Heavy Seed will see the light of day September 6th 2019.The album comes in CD Digipack, and three different vinyl versions:

LTD edition Aside/Bside twin colored vinyl RED / AQUA BLUE + poster + patch + pick – SOLD OUT

Valley of the Sun – Old Gods

VALLEY OF THE SUN

Old Gods by Valley of the Sun is released on 24th May 2019 on Fuzzorama Records

“Valley of the Sun sound like one of those bands best experienced in a dive bar with sweat dripping off the walls – a perfect setting for the short, sharp shock of ‘The Hunt’, the QOTSA-esque jaunt of ‘Land of Fools’, where Ryan Ferrier’s huge vocals sound like Steven Tyler experiencing an exorcism.” – METAL HAMMER

“There’s no question that Valley of the Sun are placing themselves at the forefront of the new generation of American heavy rock.” – THE OBELISK

Fuzzorama Records – home to world beating rock of Truckfighters, Deville and Skraeckoedlan – is thrilled to announce the release of Old Gods; the brand-new studio album from the US band, Valley of the Sun.

Formed in Cincinnati, OH in 2010, the band instantly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with, thanks to two self-released EPs; the kind that never seem to go unnoticed/unheard for long. Often compared to the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Alice in Chains and Badmotorfinger-era Soundgarden –the latter due in no small part to singer Ryan Ferrier’s exemplary vocal range – listeners are treated to a sound that runs the gamut of blues, hard rock, grunge and heavy metal, with big riffs, fuzzed out hooks and deep bass grooves.

For the band, whose last release came in 2016 with the impressive Volume Rock, new album Old Gods is a new and exciting concoction expertly packaged and delivered with a raw and unbridled power whether listened to via stage or speaker. In this incarnation, incorporating heady moments of psychedelia and assuming a form unlike anything the band has ever attempted before.

“To me, Old Gods is a meditation on who I once was, who I am now, and who I’d like to become,” explains guitarist/vocalist Ryan Ferrier.

“We try to evolve with each album,” adds drummer Aaron Boyer. “On Old Gods we added some heavier elements, darker tones, and a touch of psychedelia. We tried some things on this record that we’ve never done before and that made it a lot of fun to make.”

The album comes in CD digipack as well as three different vinyl versions; Black LP Gatefold incl poster and sticker , Transperant Green LP Gatefold incl poster and sticker, Splatter LP Gatefold incl two posters and a sticker. The Splatter version will only be sold through Fuzzorama’s own webstore as well as by the band at live shows.

Ryan Ferrier – Guitar/Vocals
Aaron Boyer – Drums
Chris Sweeney – Bass, Keys
Josh Pilot – guitars

Skraeckoedlan states this concerning the release: “This is by far our most ambitious work of art as of yet. It’s been a real challenge to do someone else’s story justice whilst making the songs cohesive as well as standing strong on their own, but through a lot of effort we’ve done just that.”

We Hunt Buffalo delivers hard hitting fuzz rock with delicious grooves and psychedelic overtones.

After forming in Vancouver, their debut EP introduced the band that was “dedicated to tracking down and capturing the dying breed of rock and roll” (Georgia Strait). The band went on to release ‘Blood From a Stone’. Recorded at Nimbus School of Recording Arts by Alex ‘Condor’ Aligizakis, the title track was hailed by Exclaim! Magazine as “…a fuzz-bomb riff that would make Tom Morello proud… Indeed this is a headbanger’s paradise.”

In December 2013, the band was added as direct support to Monster Truck on their cross Canada tour. The remainder of the year saw them doing multiple tours supporting the likes of Sleepy Sun, Band of Skulls and Biblical. In the years since, they’ve shared stages with Red Fang, Electric Wizard, Earthless, Elder, Truckfighters, Monolord, Monster Truck, Chevelle, Matt Mays, Danko Jones, Electric Six, and Nightseeker (of Fubar fame).

Amidst bombastic international tours and growing acclaim, the band unleashed their debut ‘Living Ghosts’ in 2015 via a coalition between Fuzzorama Records and New Damage Records. Hailed as ” both heavy and catchy” by PopMatters, Ghost Cult Magazine raved, “imagine the offspring that would be conceived by a three-way between A Perfect Circle, Spiritual Beggars and Mastodon. That’s pretty much what we have here, and it’s wonderful.”

With more touring and tunes on the horizon, We Hunt Buffalo is ready for the kill.

Steadily pushing on since 2004 with more than 400 live shows in their backpacks the Swedes have recorded a great metal album. The first single ‘Gold sealed tomb’ became a small hit on Spotify featured in official metal playlists ‘Kickass Metal’ and ‘New metal’ with over 100.000 Spotify plays in a few weeks.’
‘Pigs With Gods’ is the bands second release on Fuzzorama and their fifth release in their career. It picks up where ‘Make it belong to us’ left off moving in an even more heavy direction straight in direction of metal, leaving the stoner genre behind in favor of a more classic metal sound. It
fits the guys perfect!
Whilst still being a record that has nice dynamics ‘Pigs With Gods’ is definitely the bands heaviest effort to date. As the band themselves would like to put it: “When we first started writing music for a new album it became evident to all of us that we were quite tired of the traditional doom/stoner genre… It soon became clear that more Metal was what we all wanted! Thus the album was given a very metal feeling…”

– “Like a rock / metal punch right in your face” – Andreas Bengtsson (vocalist / guitarplayer)

– Sharp balance of beat-up stoner hedonism and a shiny overcoat of vocal melody, which gives a modern-day feel without loosing that sense of nostalgic rebellion – METAL HAMMER
– Swedish heavy rockers Deville craft classically structured, memorable songs – THE OBELISK
