Blackwülf thunders out of Oakland, CA uniting four hessian brothers who've burned their share of offerings at the altar of classic metal, ritualizing the worship of heavy music with a nod to the masters like Fu Manchu, Acid King and Sleep. Their upcoming 2013 release entitled “Mind Traveler” beckons with powerful rippling chords that unfold over time and space. Sweeping vistas of stoner rock and doom metal merge and slowly break against a flood wall of psychedelic consciousness. Sonically true to their respective influences, primed with layers of space and depth, this production is massive and deserves the loudest display possible. These songs are designed and delivered to conjure and transport listeners to that place beyond time. Full blown guitars weave a spell of slowly building madness on each cut while the vocals seem to either rage in throaty growls or simmer in pools of sacred fire. This slowly churned intensity lies on a rhythm section blasting and churning along as if forged from the dankest pools of demon rock in a bygone era, when volume was not a concession and good souls craved a pummeling groove.“ – Toby Carital, Mind Tree Music
