PRIZEHOG, the massive, mind-bending Portland-by-way-of-the-Bay-Area trio, exists on another plane. Combining meditative grooves, punishing sludge, dazzling melodies, ultra-heavy psych, and crunchy riffs aplenty using a baffling and impossibly cryptic calculus, PRIZEHOG has created its own bizarro universe of heaviness. Re-Unvent the Whool, their fifth release, is a magnificently powerful LP, a byzantine labyrinth of impenetrable riffs, crushing dirges, heavy hooks, and warped excursions wrapped in triumphant progressions made complete with downshifted bellows and dark cries; perplexing and mystifying yet grand, spellbinding, enthralling, and uncannily soulful. With eight years of non-stop playing and four releases behind them, PRIZEHOG set out to make their most ambitious work to date. Recorded and mixed by Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Big Business, Tool, Russian Circles) at his Sun Valley studio Sound of Sirens, Re-Unvent the Whool is a wonderous invention, a record full of depth, complexity, power, humor, and beauty and a truly unique vision of genuine heaviness.
