If you love that 70’s feel with a tinge of modern stoner rock meets Sabbath inspired riffs then Woodhawk‘s “Beyond The Sun” will be just your thing.
The title track really sums up Woodhawk’s strengths. It comes across as a synthesis of Mastodon (circa Crack The Skye) and Kyuss circa their spacey, proggy Welcome To Sky Valley. I just love this track; everything is just right, a really catchy song with a very modern mid-section.
Listen to Calgary’s Woodhawk
All this week from April 24- April 28th at 8pm EST on Toronto’s 94.9 The Rock
“The nine tracks that make up the fantastic trip of “Beyond the Sun” has its own delicious flavor wrapped in a sexy costume of desert/stoner rock, and once the riffs sink their hooks into you there’s no going back. To call this album captivating would only be the very beginning of how much Woodhawk grabs a hold of the human psyche with this music. It’s all top tier, high-quality stoner rock the likes of which we don’t see often, and it’s not hard to see why “Beyond the Sun” seems to enrapture all who behold its tunes.”
This album comes out swinging right from the get-go, and swing for the fences from track to track. WOODHAWK are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll and you get it from front to back, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés.
With slamming, groovy riffs, the band’s first full length record brings you back to the early 70s rock n roll sound with several different lyrical themes to keep it interesting… a killer 9-track debut record not to be forgotten soon by fans of stoner rock.
