New Band To Burn One To: WEEDPECKER



The band was started in 2011 by the Dobry brothers, both taking guitar duties. At the end of the year Pan Falon joined the band, who also plays drums for Belzebong. The trio released their demo in 2012, still without a bassist. At the end of the year Jose finally joined the band as bassist, a Spanish musician who also played before in bands like Looking For An Answer and Antigama. In April 2013 this formation (Piotr, Bartek, Falon and Jose) started recording material for their first album and performed live first time supporting Americans Elder in Warsaw. Their album will be released in July 2013.


"Amongst the heavy grunge rumblings lies a savage serpent waiting to strike. Filled with a plethora of doom-laden riffs, the soft psychedelic tones swirl through the desert wind as it kicks up a huge tumbleweed aiming to bull you over. This group of fine musicians from Poland aptly named Weedpecker for obvious reasons, seamlessly fuse elements of grunge and desert rock to a background of delicate groove and heavy riffing. Currently, the band has released a demo in 2012 and is set to release a full-length sometime in July 2013. Until then, the current single featured above is streaming on their Bandcamp page. If the rest of the album is as good if not better than these two songs, it may have catapulted to my top releases of 2013. The artwork is pretty killer as well. Stay tuned..."
