FORGET GANDALF VS SARUMAN. GET READY FOR A REAL WIZARD FIGHT AT DESERTFEST 2017!
Named after the classic Weedeater song, this Hastings-based trio make no bones about where their NOLA-influenced filth comes from. Simple but effective, no-frills gutter crawling sludge is the name of the dastardly game. With some heritage from black metal (Luke Bolton of ROTS) and stoner rock/psych (Dan Kinsey ex-Steak and George 'Bungle' Cobbold ex-Enos) you also can expect a few other ingredients in there to taint the decrepit broth.
This is the second invite that Wizard Fight have had to Desertfest, cementing an impending return with a packed Black Heart performance in 2014. Now in their fifth year, some heaving shows sharing the stage with the likes of Tombstones & Dopethrone under the belt, and a brand new EP "Grave Lurker" in the pipeline, they’ll continue to provide the soundtrack to audience’s neck-testing melancholy at this year’s fest. You eyeless hordes will not be disappointed with the creeping cacophony that results!
