Best metal band to hit the bong to

Staff Pick

The devil's weed is always a little sweeter when cosmic metal monsters Wizard Smoke spark up the joint. The menacing five-piece ensemble drives its up-tempo rock 'n' roll dirges with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, while sidestepping the typical woozy-eyed dreariness that so often defines the stoner aesthetic. Wizard Smoke's songs are glacial in size and epic in stature, but there's a sense of humor hiding behind every riff throughout the band's latest LP, The Speed of Smoke. Take another hit and let the perma-grin begin. wizardsmoke.net.
