“Under Acid Hoof” is the band’s second full-length album. The album was recorded in 2019, mixed and mastered by Dionysis Dimitrakos of Descent Studios, who also worked with the band for their debut album back in 2017. Drums were recorded in Dope of Sound Studios in Athens.
The album is a direct continuation of the band’s self-titled, debut full-length album, but darker, heavier, and fuzzier. Five Tracks of Doom, each one offering something unique to the Opus. It just gets heavier and heavier as you dwell deeper into the album.
The father & son duo on guitars offer to the listener a horde of Iommi-style riffs with fuzzy melodies accompanied by doomy riffing, which is supported by wicked bass lines and heavy drumming. The clean mellow vocals add to the mix, and the occasional talk of witchcraft and mammoths can lead to a sublime, heavy experience.
The artwork is made by Branca Studio, whoelse could get the spirit of this album and put it on a cover?
You have to dig this album loud if you are a fan of Electric Wizard, Monolord, Sleep.

Siena Root came to life in Stockholm in the late 90’s and is today considered one of the pioneering Swedish bands in old school rock music. They persistently pulled through with releasing their first album on vinyl back in 2004, long before the retro trend had people carrying down their old turntables from the attic. The quest to bring out the beauty of analogue music production to the listeners continued.
Power trio based on Almería Desert City, Spain.

Ripple Music are honored and thrilled to announce the signing of doom metal icon Scott “Wino” Weinrich. Wino’s new solo album will launch Ripple’s new "Blood and Strings series, in which some of the most admired names in riff-rock and metal unplug to record albums of acoustic heaviness. Ripple Music will release Wino’s new Frank Marchand-recorded solo album ‘Forever Gone’ in early 2020.
WINO declares: "Hello friends, fans, freaks! It is with great excitement that I announce to the rock and roll world that I have signed on to the Ripple family and that Ripple will be releasing my next solo/acoustic recording 'Forever Gone' in early 2020. I think this is the perfect vessel to bring this music to your ears! Thanks all at Ripple Music and thanks to all who believe!" Ripple Music will soon unveil more details regarding this new solo album as well as their upcoming "Blood and Strings: The Ripple Acoustic” 12" vinyl series.
Scott “Wino” Weinrich is widely as known as the iconic frontman of cornerstone doom metal founders SAINT VITUS and THE OBSESSED — both founded in the late 70s and revered for inspiring hundreds of bands in their sovereign wake — as well as SPIRIT CARAVAN, THE HIDDEN HAND and SHRINEBUILDER. Through his prolific and passion-driven 40-year career, whether he was laying the foundations of modern doom or successfully sailing across stirring folk rock lands, Wino has remained an unwavering force of the underground scene. Wino formed his first band The Obsessed in 1980, starting the reign of “heavy and slow” decades before doom grew into a flourishing worldwide genre unto itself. A few years later, he moved to California to join Saint Vitus, with whom he released the seminal ‘Born Too Late’ (1986), one of the most powerful statements in doom’s early history, with Wino’s raspy, heartfelt and punk-charged vocals booming loudly above the crowd of howling, gimmicky Ozzy copycats.
Following a reformation of The Obsessed and a brief major-label flirtation in the early 90s which included a a piledriving update of Black Sabbath's "The Wizard" alongside Geezer Butler, Bill Ward and Rob Halford, Wino formed yet another influential outfit, Spirit Caravan. The new band fused his trademark sludgy churn with an increased soulfulness, beginning to lay the groundwork for his eventual exploration of acoustic and expansive songwriting. During this time, Dave Grohl also invited Wino to join his all-star Probot project alongside Lemmy Kilmister, King Diamond, Max Cavalera and other notables. Numerous world tours with his various bands later, the creative source remained inexhaustible as Wino embarked on a new direction with the release of his solo debut, ‘Punctuated Equilibrium.’ Quickly followed by second solo LP ‘Adrift’ in 2010 and a series of collaborations with German folk songwriter Conny Ochs, Wino embarked on extensive European and North American tours as a solo act, continuing to maintain his thriving solo output even with the arrival of a much-heralded and welcome re-constitution of The Obsessed for the third time in 2017.
Today, WINO is respected the world over as the godfather of doom and one of the heavy music underground’s most revered lifers. Worldwide festivals like Roadburn, Hellfest, Psycho Las Vegas, Desertfest, Maryland Deathfest, Rock Hard Fest, Monolith On The Mesa and countless others keep inviting Wino back through his various sonic incarnations year after year.
"The career of Wino is a rich and fabled one, and his tentacles of influence weave throughout the arenas of rock, punk and metal." – Alternative Press
"Wino, what a fucking guitar player, and one of my favorite singers. Nothing to prove, just soul-felt vocals." – Phil Anselmo (Down, Pantera)
"Wino's music has always been so serious, that's the only thing he knows, and he's gonna do it whether or not he makes a million dollars or ten bucks… he means it." – Pepper Keenan (Corrosion Of Conformity
Ready for take-off? Buckle up and hold on tight when the “fuzztronauts” of PARASOL CARAVAN start their spaceship and speed across the stage with the riff force of a supernova. The Linz-based band counts on calm psychedelic moments merged with heavy fuzz and driving guitar riffs, a fusion epitomizing the right amount of progressiveness and beaming the listener directly into orbit.
Stoner doom lords Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats have revealed they’ll be returning to Australia next year throughout February and March, taking in headline dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
They’ll also be making an appearance at Farmer & The Owl Festival in Wollongong, alongside the likes of Hot Chip, Sleaford Mods and Drab Majesty.
Uncle Acid, the brainchild of singer and guitarist Kevin Starrs, have released five albums of psych-tinged, riff-heavy metal since their formation back in 2009.
Their most recent was last year’s Wasteland. A concept record about a society in which people live in walled cities under heavy surveillance, the album strays from the usual Black Sabbath idolatry the genre can be plagued by.
Instead, the band took significant influence from ’70s power pop and, as Starr commented around the time of release, “tied it to the back of a van and will now parade it along Main Street. I’m sure people will be delighted that we’re back in town.”

Big Scenic Nowhere, the new collaborative project of desert rock vets Gary Arce (Yawning Man) and Bob Balch (Fu Manchu), recently released a two-song, 25+ minute EP, and now they’re set to put out their full-length debut album, Vision Beyond Horizon, on January 31 via Heavy Psych Sounds (pre-order). Like on the EP, Gary and Bob are the core, but they brought in a handful of collaborators, including Nick Oliveri (Mondo Generator, ex-Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age), Tony Reed (Mos Generator), Lisa Alley and Ian Graham (both of The Well), Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man), Bill Stinson (Yawning Man), Per Wiberg (Spiritual Beggars, ex-Opeth), and Alain Johannes (who has worked with Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan, PJ Harvey, and several others).
We’re premiering lead single “The Glim,” an instantly satisfying dose of riffy desert rock that fans of any of the members’ more famous bands should have no trouble getting into. Alain Johannes takes lead vocals on this one, and he says, “Total honor and pleasure to get on a sonic ghost ship with Bob, Gary, Mario and Bill on this track. Love these dudes and had a blast collaborating on ‘The Glim.'” Bob Balch adds:
“The Glim” is a result of Gary Arce and myself jamming in DAD’GAD. The first riff was an idea Gary had and then like three hours later while jamming, Gary played the chorus! I went home and put the pieces together and added a bridge part. Tony Reed on mellotron, Mario Lalli on bass and Bill Stinson on drums filled it out. Alain Johannes absolutely killed it on this one. He played all the leads too. This was the first track I recorded all of my guitars at my house. All Reverend guitars on my rhythm tracks. My signature on the left and a Pete Anderson hollow-body on the right. Signature ROLA head too. Killer tones all around! This tune has sort of a Soundgarden meets Bowie vibe to me. Hope y’all dig it!

Brant Bjork (born March 19, 1973) hails from Palm Desert, CA, where he began gigging at the age of 13. By high school Brant had begun Kyuss with locals Josh Homme, Chris Cockrell (later Nick Oliveri) and John Garcia. In 1993, Brant left Kyuss and moved to Humboldt to flip pizzas and play soccer. Too much rain moved him back to his natural habitat where he started an independent record label, El Camino Records (3) which become Duna Records (now defunct) and Low Desert Punk Records; played drums in hardcore punk band De-Con; and played guitar with desert legend Mario Lalli in Fatso Jetson. In 1996, Bjork hooked up again with Homme, to begin The Desert Sessions saga and work on what became Queens Of The Stone Age. However, Brant decided to take the road less traveled and rock with his surf buddies Fu Manchu, an adventure which took him into the studio for five records and around the world in four years. After few solo albums in the 00's he joined a resurrected version of Kyuss under the new monicker Kyuss Lives! (without Josh Homme). Kyuss Lives! then changed name in Vista Chino and released an album before going to hiatus. In 2014 Brant formed a new band Brant Bjork And The Low Desert Punk Band. In 2016 he released a new album, Tao Of The Devil under his name only. In 2018 Mankind Woman was released on Italian label Heavy Psych Sounds that also started to re-release part of his solo output. A new album, Jacoozzi is expected in April 2019.
British heavy metal/stoner rock band founded in 1995 in London.
Orange Goblin was originally formed in 1995 under the name Our Haunted Kingdom before changing their name to Orange Goblin.

Taking their name from Black Sabbath's third album, Masters of Reality is a hard rock group formed in Syracuse, New York in 1981 by guitarist/singer Chris Goss and guitarist Tim Harrington (2). The band is sometimes associated with the "Palm Desert Scene", which includes Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age, and other stoner/desert rock bands. The band's lineup tends to be fluid with the exception of leader Goss.

Recently on social media, we ran something called the “Resin Roundup”, a March Madness-inspired bracket of 8 surfboards featuring artisanal resin work by some of the world’s best glassers. SURFER’s Instagram followers voted for the board they liked most in rounds and heats until only one beautifully glassed stick was left standing: a Chemistry Surfboards model shaped by Jason Bennett, adorned with the unique resin art of a young talent named Micah Beutz.
Beutz, a 26-year-old from Oceanside, California is a perfect example of an uber-talented shaper/artist creating eye-popping rest tints. We caught up with Beutz to find out what got him into the industry in the first place, how he learned such a niche craft and what inspires him to come back to work in a factory of foam dust and fumes day after day.
Starting in the beginning, what drew you to the surfboard building business in the first place?
In high school I was looking for a job and my buddy got me one at Christenson [surfboards]. I started by packing boards for him, and then started helping with quality control and just overseeing the whole process. From there I got a job in Oceanside at a place called OSI, glassing for Takayama, Hobie, Xanadu and a couple other brands. After that I kinda jumped around to different glass shops doing a lot of different things and learning about resin tints. When Jason Bennett [from Chemistry surfboards] was looking for a ghost shaper, someone recommended me to him, and I said “hell yeah” when he called [laughs]. That was three and half years ago and I’m still here today. Shaping and doing resin art.
What side of the craft do you enjoy most: Shaping or doing the resin?
That’s tough. Probably the resin art, to be honest.
How long does it take you to do a resin job, start to finish?
I can flip a color glass job in a of couple hours. Glassers put a lot of time and effort into making a glass job the way we like to see it. We take pride in quality work, which can sometimes go unseen.
How did you learn to do that? Your work is really impressive.
Thanks! Yeah I learned from so many talented people. At the different shops I worked at I just picked up a little bit at a time watching how these guys were working with different colors. These days, everything inspires me. Everywhere I go I’m always looking at color combinations and paying attention to what looks good and how it makes me feel. I try to relate that to a customer. It’s always different: I never want to keep doing the same things so I’m always trying to learn more about the process and how I can do it differently. It keeps me hungry. I don’t know shit, compared to where I want to go. But that keeps me hungry. Everyday I wake up I’m excited to work with new colors and combos.
Skeleton Bay only lights up a few times each year, so when it does it sends surfers around the world into a flight-booking frenzy. This year, the season started with a bang—two days of cartoonish-looking pits exploded for miles down Africa’s freakish sand point, documented it in-depth.
While it’s been relatively quiet since, there have been a couple of notable swells, most recently the one you’ll see above in Matt Bromley’s recent Vlog episode. While this swell is a little smaller, and a lingering fog bank makes it appear less appealing on film, Bromley’s session was filled with plenty of ruler-edged left tube perfection, capped off by 4-time kite surfing world champion Keahi Aboitiz towing him into a wave with a kite. As you’ll see, by whipping into the wave early, Bromley takes off deeper and with more speed than normal (Jet Skis aren’t allowed at Skeleton Bay), allowing him to perfectly backdoor the first heavy section, and get tubed twice more. Just another day at the world’s best sandbar.
Sure, the terms “best ever” and “as good as it gets” are thrown around loosely on the east coast during hurricane season. In this case, well, the hyperboles might be warranted.
Last week, for two days straight, legit 6- to 8-foot A-frame teepees broke and spit all along the coast of Long Island. Beachbreaks on the east coast are finicky, and it’s rare for them to fire for more than a few hours, much less two full days. So rare, a swell like this hasn’t happened in at least a decade.
Ben Gravy, YouTube vlogger extraordinaire, was on hand to document the day(s) in this 17-minute piece, in which he gets barreled off his head alongside Stack, Dunphy, Sam Hammer, Mike Gleason and more lucky souls that happened to be on hand.
Right before Christmas last year, we teamed up with intrepid filmmaker Ben Weiland to create a documentary highlighting Weiland's lifelong passion of chasing waves to places few would ever want to look. The 45-minute film, called “Coldwater Journal,” tells the story of a decade-long journey with fellow fringe-wave connoisseurs to some of the most inhospitable surf zones in the world. Over the next few months, we'll show you some highlights from "Coldwater Journal," starting with an arctic mission with Dane Gudauskas, Keith Malloy and Pat Millen, who went way off the beaten path in one of the most extreme climates imaginable. To read more about "Coldwater Journal," click here for an interview with Weiland.

Sharks are at the top of the food chain. The ocean predators follow their instincts. The good news is that humans are not on their diet list. However, like us, they make mistakes, too.
Swimmers and surfers are not sharks' favorite meal. They prefer sea lions, sea turtles, fish, whales, and seals.
The majority of shark attacks occur near the shore, in the surf zone and sandbars, because their natural preys live in these areas. But attacks also take place in steep underwater drop-offs, where divers often swim.
Sharks have to make quick decisions to capture food and, sometimes, the predator misinterprets humans for its natural food item.
When that happens, sharks put their teeth to work and generate 40,000-pound of pressure per square inch that crush flesh and bones in the split of a second.

Cosmic FuzzFm was created after my Friend and Colleague Cody Allen passed away suddenly and this came as a shock and stunned us all. I let FuzzFm continue as it was for about a year or so before deciding to start again with cosmicfuzzfm. Myself and Cody created FuzzFm and created it to how we wanted it to be. However before the Fuzz Cody first started up a station called Skunky Fuzz, got me on board and somehow it evolved into Fuzz Fm. Shortly after Cody passed away things seemed to be changing on the Fuzz. Too many Podcasts and not enough live shows, artist features and Full album plays. So i decided to start this new cosmic journey and created CFFM. Its been tough and a pain in the arse at times but we finally getting back on Track, with thanks to our new team members, two of which are my best friends since we could walk. As always many thanks for all your support over the years and FUZZ ON!.
