Silver Devil – Paralyzed (2019)
“The swedish band SILVER DEVIL fuzzoholics is like being run down by some rampant trucker on meth, you get truckloads of fuzz and piles of everything that stoner rock is all about and these animals are without any doubt comparable to bands like Dozer. They have marked their own unique trademark! The CD includes a bonus track !!!”
It’s been a good while since we heard anything new from Sweden’s Silver Devil. On Paralyzed the fuzz dial is turned up to 11 and the groove literally paralyzes the senses on their 8-song opus of heavy stoner metal. The label/band have been kind enough to send over a bunch of codes to spread their appreciation to the scene for being such faithful supporters over the years. Be fast!! You can also grab the CD and vinyl edition on the bandcamp page linked below to help wipe the fuzz from your face after your free code listen.
Here’s what a couple of our contributors thought:
- Silver Devil’s “Paralyzed” takes you back to a time when cargo shorts, Black Flag tees and suitably distressed footwear were the uniform of choice, a time when beards were still stubble and the most important weapons in any bands arsenal were their fuzz pedals, We are talking authentic “stoner rock/metal” here and although there has been a recent backlash against anything remotely associated with the term “stoner” Desert Psychlist defies even the most conservative of the “Tru-Metal” brigade not to garner some level of enjoyment from the grooves Silver Devil lay before them here.~Frazer Jones (Desert Psychlist)
- It’s been too long a wait since the bands first album was released but boy was it worth the wait. I’m trying to remain calm but this is so freakin’ great. Favorite track: Beast. ~Steve Rodger (God’s Holy Trousers)
