Magic Wave - _Magic Wave_
(Independent, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
Radiating ultra-Monster Magnet vibes and a good solid psychedelic doom feel, Finnish moody metallers Magic Wave play their hearts out here on this rather impressive debut disc. Throw in comparisons to early Black Sabbath at times (it's in the vocals) and the real crunch of the simpleton-like guitar work a la AC/DC and this really flows deep and hard as a stoner disc to take part in and just light up and rock out to. While at times the music looses itself in somewhat stalling jam sessions, for the most part Magic Wave kicks it in motion. I'm totally impressed by the band's true professional manner on disc, playing as well as any signed band out there. Worth looking into, people, as Magic Wave keeps the ball rolling and will keep the rolling papers rolling just as much. Choice cuts: "Get Down", "Trapped" and opener "Dead & Gone". I still can't believe they're from Finland!
