Fiftywatthead are back with their third and most accomplished album to date "Fogcutter".
Known as one of Canada's heaviest bands, the Windsor, Ontario four-piece have put together a merciless eight song monolith of a record that Signed By Force could not resist. The album captures the legendary volume and sheer intensity of their live shows without compromise and proves that they are in fact Canada's answer to Neurosis.
Although "Fogcutter" is also the name of a rum based Tiki drink, this is not something that would remind you of bamboo, Hawaiian shirts or colored cocktail umbrellas. The album title comes from a kind of boat that could carve its way through even the densest of fog and their music does just that ..... The relentless onslaught of colossal riffs and monumental heaviness storms through what would be the ideal soundtrack for the sinking of the Titanic or the impending doom of the Ancient Mariner.
Their barrage of heavy rock, noise and prog brings on a maelstrom that broadens the horizons of metal and hard rock and puts Fiftywatthead on the map as one of the leaders of Canada's heavy music scene.
