𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Dirty fusion of stoner rock riffs with distorted heavy-psych rhythm sections, deep (funky) bass-lines

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Stoner, hard/Psychelidic rock (doom-ish) clean vocals

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Slow dirty-catchy (heavy) drum patterns and beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Poisonfog is a fusion of a kind psychedelic drug, that takes the listener back to the good-old-days of fun & dirty stoner rock n' roll, Occult, Doom/Psychelidic days


Poisonfog is a different breed of stoner doom act, with only four songs, with a short playtime of only twenty minutes, it's the songs and craftmanship by the three members that capture the spirit of music, and how they created each song, with no dull moments, but a filling of vibrant, energetic and entertaining four songs that don't play one style, (this is the smart part of the band's music and playing style), within each song, the group seem to have their songs broken into musical sections, like making a potion of a magical brew, giving the listener a wide range of distortion sounds, slow moments of traditional doom metal, heavy-psych rhythms, raw/dirty stoner-rock 'n' roll drumming, while the vocals are a mixture of various tones, while the rest of the EP, is a mixture incredible/beautiful of a tint of a psychedelic/upbeat vibe & other elements/influences within the songs/music


So with only four songs, Poisonfog and their music as giving the listener more than four songs, but a bunch of songs all crushed into four songs and in a short time, surely this EP will keep your ears open, making you stop in your tracks, each song spontaneous changes style, one moment, you be listening to a slow doomy song, then moving into a trippy vortex stoner rock or another vibrant vibe sounds, tones & music


I thoroughly enjoyed this release, if you like bands in FFO section (personly I do feel like Poisonfog wovens all these bands into their own creativity brew), this magical brew, is undoubtedly for you

*full of energy from start to end*

*entertaining of magical craftsmanship & musicianship
