Cast your mind back to 2011. A thing is happening; a second thing is in the news; a person did a thing. Ah, 2011! So memorable. Perhaps but probably not most memorable of all was Glitter Wizard’s deliverance of hard psych in the form of ‘Solar Hits’, a parody metal record as jaunted as a speed-bump and as medieval as a lazer-quest reenactment of 1066.
Glitter Wizard offer welcome relief to those who find stoner rock a little stuffy, or perhaps way too slow: their preference is for brevity, hitting on the same raw-production values but with a higher rate of tempo and a love for squeezing out solos. If you’re playing in a self-serious doom band, you might find their sound to be enviously cheesy: keyboards whirr about the place as if cajoling the low-end out of bed. The vocals sound like how I imagine every gruff loser man on Game of Thrones to sound.
Ever wanted a stoner band to cover “I’m A Believer”? The majorly wacky, oddly ‘60s pop inspired hard rock of “I Don’t Like You” is a good start. “Snow Crash” calmly shreds its way through a theme tune opportunity, and “Mirror Man” gets wah wah with its solos before breaking it all down for a flute solo. They’ve got a tenorist too! I’m pretty sure they’re fucking with us, guys. I’m pretty sure.
