Debut outing from members of Sun Of Man and Megaritual under their new guise - Drug Cult. Hazy and very very heavy indeed, this is a huge dose of psychedelics through an Electric Wizard filter. Fuzzed riffs that is a must for fans of Baba Naga and the likes. CD, LP and Limited Deluxe CD on ritual Productions.

I was passed this with the promise that it’s heavy but honestly it just reminds me of all the times people screencap tweets that have 4 retweets and 20 likes. A Drug Cult indeed, these pals make the kind of stoner rock where the riffs really whine and the vox really howwwwwwwwwwwwwwwl. In terms of taking the lineage of Electric Wizard and co. further into the depths of time, Drug Cult truly succeed, creating a really fun and extremely crunchy record for fans of the more melodic strand of doom metal.
Drug Cult nail the hazy but hard schematic of their genre. This thing sounds kinda absent-minded, at times, but it’s threaded together with a heavy guitar effect and an absolutely pummelling drumming shift, the lethargic vibe matched with moments that snap the listener awake. I’ll take it; I need a rude awakening, sometimes. Formerly adjacent to Wolfmother and Sun of Man, it makes sense that Vin Steele’s new band would homage hard rock at every turn, creating a kind of third-hand Black Sabbath that amps it up a bit for our modern era.
Eats you, slays you, riffs you. All the things you could possibly want as a stoner. You bloody stoner.
