With the band fresh off of their latest successful European tour, Decibel Magazine is now hosting an exclusive stream of The Conjuring, the latest album from Dallas stoner doom metallers, WO FAT.
With nearly fifty foundation-shaking minutes of supremely executed spliff-torching thunder, WO FAT proves that they’re in the upper tiers of the vast stoner/doom metal universe alongside and comparable to acts like Nebula, Black Pyramid, Ufomammut, Elder, and undoubtedly Fu Manchu on The Conjuring. Small Stone Recordings will drop this bomb of raging fuzz-tone amplification and soulful, cosmic destruction this Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 via digital download, CD, and 180 gram vinyl with deluxe jacket and poly-lined sleeves and pressed in transparent red and black schemes, each limited to 250 copies and including a download.
Unleash all of The Conjuring via Decibel now at THIS LOCATION.

There’s been a creature lurking in the woods since WO FAT‘s 2006 debut, The Gathering Dark. Their second album, 2009’s Psychedelonaut, pulled back on the threat some to lighten the mood, but whether it’s the motor-driven rush of “Read The Omens” or the you’re-already-lost-in-it riff-exploration of seventeen-minute closer “Dreamwalker,” The Conjuring is indeed a backwoods ritual. Bluesmen have sold their souls for less. Topped off with a mastering job from Nolan Brett at Stump’s studio and an otherworldly cover courtesy of Alexander Von Wieding, the beast that WO FAT‘s tectonic riffage calls to earth has never seemed more real or more alive than it does on The Conjuring. Much in the same vein as their last two offerings – 2012’s The Black Code and 2011’s Noche del Chupacabra – The Conjuring boasts big jams and brawny riffs, the sort of record that turns the vaguely interested into converts and makes the corners on squares look even sharper.
“The Conjuring is the trio at their most confident and awe-inducing, doling out heaviness like heavy ain’t no thing. So be careful jamming this album beside a bonfire. There’s no telling what may come crawling out of the cinders.” – The Metal Observer
