Tripping Haze Ceremony stoner doom metal from Malaysia album review and band interview by Fuzzy Cracklins

🌿 Debut EP from Tripping Haze Ceremony drops on 4/20 🌿
Demo 2018 from Tripping Haze Ceremony might only have two tracks and a bonus, but just set it to play on repeat and you will enjoy it for hours. THC delivers exactly what you like in a stoner track: slow heavy riffs, fuzzed out vocals, choice samples, and some amazing guitar solos. Take a listen:


One thing about THC that sets them apart from a lot of other stoner bands is they bring in some really nice, clean guitar work towards the end of the song.

I like THC so much that you can find the song Night of Damned on my doom comp Opium Warlock's Dungeon of Darkness. Check it out! Here's a video I made with a clip from it:


And good news! THC has a new single EMPEROR OF DOOM coming out on 4/20! Follow THC over on Bandcamp to find out as soon as it drops. Click here for a sample of it or watch this video!


More good news! Tripping Haze Ceremony has taken the time to answer some questions, so here is the Fuzzy Cracklins band interview with them:


FUZZY CRACKLINS: Who is in the band? When did you start as a band?
THC started as one man back in 2017, it was me, Epulyard playing the guitar and vocal. Later me and our bassist, Sara worked out for our first demo without a drummer, we frequently changed our drummer. Slowly after our demo was released in 2018, we tried to find a drummer that could fill in the position, then we got my old friend, Lim as our drummer now.  
FUZZY CRACKLINS: Who are the influences on your music?
Influences on music obviously it is Black Sabbath, but I will say there’s many band that influence me to write my own song. Uncle Acid, Beastmaker, Electric Wizard, Church Of Misery, Orchid, Down, Elder, Belzebong, Mooner, Graveyard, there’s too much name to list down. We love 70s and heavy stuff like Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Flower Travellin Band, Fleetwood Mac, Blue Oyster Cult, Stone Axe, Blues Creation, and still the list will go endlessly. (laugh)
FUZZY CRACKLINS: What bands are you listening to right now?
I’m listening to Pink Floyd while writing this, ahaa they’re great man. Witch (2006) and Master Of Reality was played before that.
FUZZY CRACKLINS: How do you find out about new music? Friends? Bandcamp? Instagram? or where?
Basically we will look out for new music on the internet nowadays, but our family and friends do take part too in great music. Among the band itself, the people you meet at local gig here, they’re just great in music. We are still digging the old and new music, all kinds of genre but stoner doom for sure.
FUZZY CRACKLINS: What is the music scene like where you live? Where do you live?
We are from Selangor, Malaysia. It’s a city named Shah Alam (SAC All Day!). The music scene here is doing great, it grows day by day. Almost every weekend you can find a gig here, in Kuala Lumpur especially. It’s great to see them struggle for what they love to do, really.
FUZZY CRACKLINS: Does THC play gigs or have plans for upcoming shows?
We haven’t played our first gig yet, yeah we would love to play live shows, tour maybe! It would be great right? [Fuzzy says: Be sure to tell us when your first gig is and we'll get the word out!!]
FUZZY CRACKLINS: Do you have any plans for a debut album?
Definitely yes, we want to release a full length album. As for now, we will release an EP album first, in the nearest time hopefully. We’ll see how it goes. 
FUZZY CRACKLINS: When is your next single being released?
Our single, Emperor Of Doom will be released this 20th April 2019 digitally on Bandcamp and YouTube, so make sure you ready with your joint and smoke to the emperor!
FUZZY CRACKLINS: What else would you like to share with your fans?
We would like to say thank you for supporting us since day one, everyone who is involved both directly and indirectly when we make our music, thank you. Don’t forget to check out our demo album and new single “Emperor Of Doom” this coming 420 on our Bandcamp and Youtube!
FUZZY CRACKLINS: Thank you for your time!
You’re welcome, thank you Fuzzy. Cheers!
