this is a pretty damn good effort for an independent debut, dude!
An intelligent, vibrating and interesting album
Impressing is what this album is all about, from the off-the-hook heavy jam of ‘Living In The Sand‘ to the heady blues-ish traits of ‘Magnetic North‘. Everything is tight knit and super relaxed as the rollercoaster ride of ever-alternating tempos on the organ-laden ‘Lawless‘ and the apparent ode to Star Wars, ‘A New Hope‘, revel in their incredibleness. For me personally, my favorite here is the album-closing ‘Chrononaut‘ and its preceding introductory instrumental opener, ‘Foresee The Future‘. This is what the modern era of serious stoner rock sounds like, my friends.
Woodhawk play a lovely brand of stoner rock & for 39 minutes bare their souls for all to see. Beyond the Sun is a fantastic record filled with moody riffs, hazy beats & vocals that are lethargic in style but excite in equal measure.
It’s a rich, riff-heavy album deep-rooted in classic rock stylings.
Take Red Fang, The Sword and Witchcraft, strip them of nearly all distortion and add a canny knack for catchy as fuck riffs, with a psychedelic edge, and you arrive at the dusty doorstep of Calgarian stoner rockers Woodhawk!
