High Energy Stoner Rock
with plenty of Raw Fuzziness from the 70's !
Coming from Arizona's Sierra Vista the brothers Wayne & Joseph Rudell are not really newcomers in the Heavy scene, even if we're here premiering a killer track from their self-titled debut album with Fuzz Evil out next week, September 30, on Battleground Records.
Yup, you might already have heard of their other fuzzy project called Powered Wig Machine, in which their new drummer Daniel Graves also fulfills the same role in Fuzz Evil. And the fuzz worship doesn't stop here with these 2 brothers ! They're even organizing together what seems like an awesome
And last but not least, Wayne the guitarist has a severe addiction to fuzz pedals, which he shares with us below 😉
Difficult to be Fuzzier than that !
Stream "Odin Has Fallen"
from Fuzz Evil debut album below :
Odin has entered a deep sleep, and it is Thor’s responsibility to protect Odin from his enemies while he’s defenseless. This song sets the scene of Thor’s failure and Odin’s Death. ‘Odin Has Fallen’ is our favorite track on the album. This song is heavy and melodic and we feel that this recording is a perfect incarceration of the mood we sought to depict.

Back to Fuzz Evil now.
But it's quite an easy move to arouse me I must admit. Now the music needs to be GOOD !
Well fuzzers, let me tell you Fuzz Evil clearly won on that side too ! Those 6 fuzz-driven tunes will most certainly
There is also a strong 70's flavor in their sound,

I have always had a love of fuzz pedals, how each one could change the feel and overall sound of a song. From Zeppelin to Blue Cheer simply by going from a Tone bender mKII to a Univox Super Fuzz. When I choose fuzz pedals I look for "texture" in
With Powered Wig Machine on the song "At The Helm of Hades" I used rare Chinese pedal called the "Fuzz Machine" which I believe was a clone of a Zvex Fuzz Factory. The reason I choose the pedal was because this pedal had crazy parameters where the pedal would just "take off" on this velcro ripping insanity. The song is a slow shuffle and I wanted the fuzz to drag sonically. You can hear how it take off at 4:34 at the end of the song.
In 2014 my Fuzz addiction so bad that it birthed a new band you now know, Fuzz Evil, who sole purpose was to blast the nastiest fuzz pedals ever made. I used a few of my favorite pedals to make this record. On most of the songs I have used one my of favorite pedals, The Univox Super Fuzz. Pete Townsend made this pedal famous then you had more modern acts like Fu Manchu's Scott Hill who made this a stoner rock holy grail. The pedal is very old and expensive 🙂 so I don't take it on the road.
One of the other mainstays on my pedal board is The Rat distortion with LM308 chip. I use this pedal on a song on the new record called "Good Medicine". This pedal gained it notoriety from Jeff Beck and Joe Walsh. This pedal has been stoner rock/
You can't have a favorite fuzz pedal list without mentioning The Electro
One of the last pedals I use is a pedal I actually built. Before I got too busy with two bands and a festival. I built a fuzz/distortion pedal called the Doom Treader under the company name Zombie Effects Lab. I made a small run that sold pretty good. I made a pedal for David Rodgers of Godhunter, Kelly from Mothership, and Joey my brother uses it on his Bass for Fuzz Evil live. This pedal works great for bass
