Wizard Master (Phasmatis)
Crank this to 8.5 of 11
Sounds Like: Electric Wizard, 1782, Salems Pot
Homeland: Rome, Italy
Yes, another doom band with 'Wizard' in the name. Seems all to common these days, but don't let this stop you from diving into their hypnotic fuzz
Filthy raw doom with meandering heavy riffs leads the way on Wizard Master's debut release
The vocals of Livo and Alessandro have that unpolished Uncle Acid meets demented Salems Pot tone; a bit muffled and trippy
Those who love the 70s occult doom scene will easily gravitate to Phasmastis. They bring their own welcome doom style to the genre

Know the Wizard
The vocals and lead guitar shine on this track. The slow head-bobbing riff is all consuming, than the songs takes a left turn at the 3:41 mark. The song stops to a sudden slower pace where the vocals are so fucking mellow with a weeping guitar and minimal percussion, it's fantasic.
(Minuetto) Solve et Coagula
The doom riffs are just so addictive here and sound amazing when cranked. This kind of fuzz is a beautiful thing.
Grab some Glasshouse by UK based Deep Seeded Brewing. This 5.5% Fruited Kettled Sour provides an aroma of sour bramble and flavors of gooseberry. A sour beer enthusiast's delight and a nice pairing to chill with Phasmastis.
