WO FAT --2011-- Noche Del Chupacabra

"Noche del Chupacabra" is all about a trip into a psychedelic swamp with sweet sludgy riffness guiding you into a world where you just can't stop feeling the groove! The dark and psychedelic ambient fits perfectly with their "swampy" riffs. And the cover is more than enough to prove my point. Being all about slow, heavy and sludgy riffs, you can see that these guys try a different approach when you think about most stoner bands that just want play heavy and fast. This band, on the contrary, doesn't have fast drums, but instead, gives you a seriously slow distorted guitar with slower bass and drums and make it work! As a result, you just can't stop nodding your head to this because their sound is slow, rhythmic and catchy. 
"Descent Into the Maelstrom" is the best example to describe their slow sound. Somehow, they managed to conciliate slow tempos with constant riff changes. It's simple, but unexpected! 
"Bayou Juju" shows that Wo Fat can also play a groovy fast sound making it, along with "Descent into the Maelstrom", one of the top two tracks of the record.
Despite the short track-listing, "Noche del Chupacabra" will guarantee you a good headbanging time with their sludgy stoner groove. I recommend these guys if you're a fan of nice and slow stoner vibes. You get tired of most bands of the same genre, but this one likes to fight back! These guys intrigue me so, rest assured, after listening to this they will most certainly do the same to you...~~ Toxine
