Dopelord - Magick Rites

Written by Ulla Roschat.

The Magick of the Riff

Dopelord is a four piece doom/stoner rock band from Poland, formed in 2010, and with Magick Rites they present their self released debut album.

What you hear is classic doom stoner rock par excellence. All the well known ingredients needed to perform the “magick rites” are in there. They are of such good quality, used so unobtrusively and well balanced, that you realize their intoxicating effects when it’s much too late. The driving fuzzed guitar sounds, the doomy echoing vocals and the 70s vibe all cast their spell imperceptibly.

And as if this wasn't enough, there are these riffs.... riffs of a magical power you simply can't withstand.
