FUZZ EVIL presents their mighty self-titled debut full-length this week, releasing the album through Battleground Records. Celebrating its public availability, the underground rock aficionados at The Obelisk post the entire record for streaming alongside an intense dissection of the record.
Offers part of the portal’s massive write-up of Fuzz Evil, “Especially for a debut, it’s a pivotal turn, and one well made. With a few surprises in its overall sound, roughness, songwriting and front-to-back push, FUZZ EVIL‘s first expands on the work they have done in setting it up through their singles and sets in motion a creative progression that could continue in any number of directions. It’s reassuring to hear a relatively new band with such a clear idea of who and what they want to be.”

Decibel Magazine published of FUZZ EVIL‘s output, “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 is now available on limited clear 12″ LP, CD, and digital formats via Battleground Records; orders can be placed at THIS LOCATION.

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.
