After over 12 years of slinging their Texas-sized psychedelic blues doom, WO FAT is going stronger and rocking harder than ever, as they continue their swampadelic visionquest of overdriven, fuzz laden riffage and jazz-minded jam explorations, and with six studio albums, a live album, and a couple splits under their belt, WO FAT has gained a reputation as one of the premier US Stoner Metal bands.
Starting with “The Gathering Dark” in 2006, they have stayed true to the deep, dark blues that wails from within and have forged their riffs with a primal grooviness, giving them a consistency of style, even while they have progressed and matured as a band, with their musical forays getting heavier but also trippier at times. 2009’s “Psychedelonaut” really began to solidify the WO FAT name, garnering them wider critical recognition, leading to releases with Nasoni and Totem Cat records and then on to their two most critically acclaimed releases to date, “The Black Code” (2013) and “The Conjuring” (2014,) both released on the iconic stoner rock label, Small Stone Records.
During these last few years, WO FAT has made appearances a number of iconic festivals in Europe and the US, including Roadburn Festival, Freak Valley Festival, Psycho California Festival, Sylak Open Air Festival, Desertfest Berlin, Desertfest London, Maryland Doomfest, Stoned Meadow of Doom, Doomed and Stoned Indiana, and one of the largest metal festivals in Europe, the famed Hellfest in France.
In 2016, WO FAT teamed up with Ripple Music to release “Midnight Cometh”, the newest slab of riffage that is possibly their most daring psychotropic exploration of heaviness to date. Rumor has it that incantations and conjurings of the Riff have begun for the next album...
