Atmospheric drone doom WEEDREEK


It's a challenge to keep a positive attitude during the misery of the pandemic, and sometimes I don't even try. I just give into the sense of dread and hopelessness, and let the feelings of sadness wash over me. And the perfect soundtrack for this mood is the debut EP from WEEDREEK. This is 30-minute collection of songs from a one-man industrial sludge drone machine. The songs were recorded over the past several years, but they sound as if they were written during the pandemic. Check out Weedreek on Bandcamp: 

There is singing (chants? haunted ramblings?) on first track, then pure instrumental with samples, and a treat for all Blade Runner fans in the last track.

Drone with atmospheric effects, with a few samples, and some very good clean guitar work. I dig the long slow non-stop pounding that receives extended periods of tortured guitar work. The extended drone combined with the guitar layers builds up a dark sense of torture and anxiety. This is not music to relax with, but it is the soundtrack for dark moods and thoughts. 

When your brain needs half an hour of heavy pounding and despair, check out the riffs and growls of Weedreek. 

30 minutes of atmospheric doom is available at NYP at

Fuzzy's favorite track: "Humanoid DUB"

Weedreek is Miguel Krieg from Mexico City. From the band: 

Weedreek is my solo sludge doom experimental project. Here is the first EP, recorded some years ago and released in June 2020.
