TheSludgelord Album Premiere WOODHAWK ‘Beyond The Sun’ + “Vagabonds of The Western Gig Tour” (BC/AB/SK/MB)

Riff-tastic Debut LP “Beyond The Sun” Out April 7th

New Video “The High Priest”

From the foot of the majestic Rocky Mountains comes Calgary, Alberta’s WOODHAWK. Masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry, the power trio released an EP in 2014 and have continued forging ahead. Made of equal parts 1970’s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who,WOODHAWK are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.

Set to unleash their debut full-length ‘Beyond The Sun’ produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) on April 7th, WOODHAWK has teamed up with TheSludgelord for the full stream premiere at the following link: http://thesludgelord.blogspot.ca/2017/04/album-premiere-calgary-albertas.html
