Wiser Fool – All That Is Left Behind

wiserfoolVancouver’s seedy underbelly of punk metalheads has a long tradition of producing some of the city’s finest rock ‘n’ roll bands and Wiser Fool are no exception.

With their first album largely unnoticed by the masses in North America, unfortunately, yet getting recognition overseas, the band pressed on, earning support slots for big name touring acts and developing their style ranging from doom to psych rock.

The recently self-released second LP All That Is Left Behind sheds slower tempos of the first effort, stepping up the pace, and the result is a nine song rager full of upbeat goodies echoing 1970s melodic sensibilities and never falling into the “cock rock” trap.

More Pentagram than Thin Lizzy, it lures you in with soulful, yet sinister vocals, catchy rhythms, and hell-raising lead guitar work. It is easy to see the musicians’ experience through intricate songwriting and tasteful, yet never flashy mastery of instruments. Well recorded and detailed, the album flows smoothly and has enough hooks to keep it spinning for a long time.

Satan wants you to crank this all the way up and who are you to deny the Dark Lord?
