Undoubtedly the most fuzz-laden song to be issued around the globe today, Arizona stoner metal trio FUZZ EVIL‘s new single, “Odin Has Fallen,” sees exclusive premiere through More Fuzz.
The band’s Joseph Rudell offers on the new single, “Odin has entered a deep sleep, and it is Thor’s responsibility to protect Odin from his enemies while he’s defenseless. This song sets the scene of Thor’s failure and Odin’s Death. ‘Odin Has Fallen’ is our favorite track on the album. This song is heavy and melodic and we feel that this recording is a perfect incarceration of the mood we sought to depict.”
Tune in and rock way out to FUZZ EVIL’s “Odin Has Fallen” RIGHT HERE.
Decibel Magazine published of the band, “Arizona’s self-proclaimed bringers of the ‘fuzzapocalypse’ pay their respects to the fore bearers of the genre like Black Sabbath and The Stooges, but FUZZ EVIL are plenty impressive in their own respect.” Sea Of Tranquility hails the band as, “all about upbeat stoner metal, with the influences of Black Sabbath, MC5, Clutch, Monster Magnet, and The Stooges seeping through these six hard hitting tracks… FUZZ EVIL have put together a fun album here for their debut, and based on this the band will certainly be one to keep your eyes on.” Nerdist notes, “If you are looking for something with a classic metal vibe, check out FUZZ EVIL. These guys play riff-heavy, reverb-infused metal that sounds like they’d be a killer opening act for Led Zeppelin.” Outlaws Of The Sun’s review bluntly includes, “ FUZZ EVIL has delivered on all counts. Miss this and miss out.”
Fuzz Evil will be released on limited clear 12″ LP, CD, and digital formats September 30th via Battleground Records; preorders are available HERE.

Formed in Sierra Vista in 2014, FUZZ EVIL is a riff propelled power trio founded by brothers Wayne and Joseph Rudell, also of heavy desert stoners Powered Wig Machine. On their first full-length, FUZZ EVIL serves up a thunderous blast of rock and roll reverie indebted to the likes of MC5, The Stooges, Black Sabbath, and Clutch, swirling and psychedelically enhanced with storylines spun from the mind’s eye of vocalist/guitarist Wayne Rudell and his obsession with comic books, science fiction, and cult cinema. From the opening crunch of “Good Medicine,” which features Unida/House Of Broken Promises’ Arthur Seay, to the progressively harbingered closer, “Black Dread,” Fuzz Evil flows like the diaries of a cosmic nomad. Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Primrose Studio by Brian Gold, the album is fitted with appropriately mind-altering cover artwork handled by bassist Joseph Rudell’s co-owned GhostTown Graphic Art.
