We are a collective of amp lovers and riff monsters. Upon our tubelifiers we ride with 4x12's stacked upon high. We are the heavy children of electric currency. Drone and riff, goat's meat, EL 34's, giant kicks and two floor toms and thunder.

Kult of the Wizard
Kult of the Wizard
Spit forth from the bowels of earth, Kult of the Wizard erupted in early 2013 in its first form and was captured as The Red Wizard. Written and recorded in a week, it’s a collection of songs about the burning destruction of man’s less than desirable habits. Less than a year later another form surfaced from the watery black depths and The Blue Wizard brought destruction to the shores. Carrying with it waves of monsters and ominous abode, The Blue Wizard explored the realm of space as it relates to a crushing watery grave. In 2015, the third form arrived, The White Wizard. Crafted with care and purity the album explores a tender subject of love. It’s in this form that Kult Of The Wizard resides physically. Tuned into their natural vibrations riff slingers, Aaron Hodgson and Ryan Janssen bring sonic devastation held steadfast by the drums of battle from Anthony Bierstedt. And just when you thought the bleak end was eminent, the soaring vocals of Mahle Roth bring life. Focusing their sound on aural landscapes each song becomes more about exploring the ride of the riff and less on a set form, presenting a live visual that takes the audience to a space outside of themselves and pushes their bodily resonances together into one unified form and experience.

Kult of The Wizard is a collection of human beings that set forth to bring different forms of Mother Nature to light. In each form a wizard presents itself and reigns down with all their force. Shaking mountains and bringing oceans to unrest, Kult Of The Wizard carves a path of destruction and life in hopes to bring favor to the powers divine.

Praise be to Gaia, the great creator, the great destroyer. All hail the riff.
MURF is a six piece punk outfit based in minneapolis. Its members hail from Iowa, North Carolina, South Dakota and Minnesota. MURF originally began as a venue for the vocalist Dan to vent anger towards the police force using Robocop as the inspiration and to get to know his then housemate/MURF guitarist Tom.
