wicked king wicker Wicked King Wicker (CD, £14.75)label: Noiseville
This is the debut CD of a doom noise band from New York making quite a name for themselves in the extreme metal scene. “While there may be a plethora of sludgy doom dirge-type outfits delivering varying degrees of damage, WKW are not to be glossed over. ‘Flydust’ delivers two tracks of punishing, decayed black drones as expansive as they are devastating but if push comes to shove it’s the self-titled ‘Wicked King Wicker’ that really goes off like a neutron bomb. [8.5]" – Terrorizer magazine. “This self-titled album is Wicked King Wicker's debut, with four songs of unbelievable psychedelic heaviness. Minimal and crushing, way, way zoned out, it's like this mutant spawn of Skullflower and extreme black doom, ridiculously heavy, and mega recommended to any of you that worship damaged droning." – Crucial Blast. “A serious new contender for sure in the world of crushing slow motion ultra doom-dirge-dronemusick. Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, Sunn O))), Skullflower, Khanate, Wolf Eyes, Bunkur, etc. Any of those names get your blood boiling, then WKW just might be your favourite new band. Think Godflesh or Pitchshifter mixed with Ramleh and Wolf Eyes, but super charged and revved up, and dipped in a psychedelic concoction of tripped out prismatic psychrock filigree and blown out amp destroying drone drenched doom.” – Aquarius Records.
