Trippy Wicked: Underground EP

Heavy/Stoner Rock
3.0/5.0

Returning with an EP, Underground, is Trippy Wicked, or more properly Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight, to rattle your speakers and frighten your eardrums with their heavy rock.

Trippy Wicked: something's funny.

Basically, that's what Underground is, an excursion into heaviness and more heaviness. Slogging away with more fuzz intoned guitar than a leopard has spots. There's a good mixed metaphor. Of the five songs within, three are lyric songs and two, instrumentals. Frankly, the first two lyric songs aren't that interesting, just more droning heaviness.

Track three, Enlightenment, is merely a copy of the first two without words. Discoveries follows, again without words, where the guitar work is more inspired and the fuzzy heaviness toned down momentarily at the end. But it returns for the concluding piece, likely the best here, thanks to a better vocal, more melodic, even soaring at times, vocal arrangement. In the end, Underground is simply Trippy Wicked being Trippy Wicked, just not entirely that clever this time around.
