Album Review: Wo Fat — “The Singularity”

Let’s get the long and short of this review out of the way right off the bat: if you’re a fan of stoner heavyweights Wo Fat, you’ll likely be well aware of — and hyped as fuck for — The Singularity, the band’s first full-length in nearly six years. After all, the Texas trio possesses an immense scope and abundance of god-tier stoner riffs, which combine to make each new release feel like a proper event. When you hear rumblings from the House of Wo Fat, you get pumped — it’s that simple. And guess what? On The Singularity, the band continues to make damn good on all that hype.

CANTO: Fallujah, Dawn of Ouroboros, Final Light, and More

I know, I know. I’m late for these more often than not. Deal with it.

  • Dawn of Ouroboros have signed on with Prosthetic Records, and have promptly unveiled a new music video for “Sorrow’s Eclipse”. That track is taken from their debut album, The Art of Morphology, which dropped back in 2020.
  • Mörk Gryning, the Swedish black metal project that dates back to 1993, are about to embark on their first U.S. tour. The dates run from April 28th through May 9th, and they’ll be joined by Arsantiqva, The Noctambulant, and Promethean Horde on select dates.
  • A new project formed from the minds of Perturbator and Cult of Luna‘s Johannes Persson, titled Final Light. The one-time project are releasing their self-titled album on June 24th through Red Creek. Listen to “In The Void” right now.
  • Blackened doom trio Behold! The Monolith are releasing a new album, From The Fathomless Deep, on July 15th through Ripple Music. Check out a new single, “Crown/The Immeasurable Void” right now.
  • Closing out our Wednesday, we have new material from Fallujah, which is something I haven’t been able to say in awhile. The video for “Radiant Ascension” is below, a track taken from Empyrean, their new album set for a September 9th release through Nuclear Blast.

CANTO: Wo Fat, Enslaved, The Wraith, and More

Last one of these this week, because apparently I’m flying somewhere tomorrow.

  • Let’s lead off with some new Wo Fat! The psychedelic doom veterans unveiled an epic new 14-minute single titled “Orphans of the Singe”. Check it out here. That’s taken from their upcoming new album, The Singularity, which drops on May 6th through Ripple Music.
  • Sharing Enslaved happenings is pretty much automatic these days. Check out the live clip for “Bounded By Allegiance” here. The footage for that Isa track was captured during last year’s streaming event, The Otherwordly Big Band Experience.
  • We’re also big fans of Falls of Rauros. Key To A Vanishing Future is streaming in full over at Brooklyn Vegan, just in case you couldn’t wait until Friday. That one will be out through Gilead Media.
  • Recently signed to Nuclear Blast, Horizon Ignited have set July 1st as the release date for their label debut, Towards The Dying Lands. The video for the first single, “Reveries”, can be viewed here.
  • We’re going to close out the day with The Wraith. The video for “Toil” (from 2019’s Gloom Ballet) has surfaced as a tribute to frontman Davey Bales, who sadly passed away a couple months ago. RIP. Give it a watch below.
