“I have a feeling we’re going to hear a lot of things about this band in the very near future”

“This awesome new album just came out Thursday and it's been in our heavy rotation ever since. These Arizonians know a thing or two about the desert, specifically desert rock with their mystic brand being churned out loud and fully leaded.”

“This is the album everything I look for in an album. It’s heavy, the guitars groove, plenty of riffs that are catchy and songs that get stuck in your head (just listen to “Supa-Collider”). All that with a southern hard rock sound make for a well rounded album that is going to continue to get more praise as time goes on.”

“I like what I like, and I like this. If you herald Devil to Pay, Corrosion of Conformity and Brain Police as your jam, then this will fit right in with your music collection.”

“This EP is a cocktail of classic-meets-hard rock, metal, with punk aggression lit up with comical lyrics and solar-plexus-punch vocals. Much of the entertainment is in the lyrics, which indulge in tales of macho, red-neck, mullet laden men racing camaros and boxing with Superman, time-traveling gunslingers shooting at mobs of zombies in parallel universes, executing killer wrestling moves on ninjas while finding a Korean Jesus, and women so sexy their beauty kills like Steven Segal. The song titles: “Mullet Man”, “Led Masquerade”, “Death By Suplex”, “Recipe For Badass” and "Uhh Sexy,” are in themselves strange, amusing, and laced with testosterone.”

“Meet Sierra Vista's Biggest Band! — Upon first listen, one might call Powered Wig Machine a hybrid of Soundgarden and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band calls Tool and Queens of the Stone Age its greatest influences, and its genre, “Stoner Rock.” Whatever you call Powered Wig Machine, also call them the biggest band in Sierra Vista.”

““At the Helm of Hades” is a pro job all the way through, with a narrative, special effects and of course, some quality heavy rock and roll. The four-piece ride a Clutch-style groove pretty hard in the clip, but as you can see, they come out of it with plenty of personality of their own.”

“While the band readies their upcoming release, I'd like to take a quick moment to introduce to you, if you haven't already heard, Powered Wig Machine. They hail from the mighty Southern Arizona, home of some pretty gnarly and kick ass underground bands. This EP packs the mighty punch. Enough that you'll get a hernia just for turning an ear in the general direction of your speakers. Whiplash will ensue as well.”

“Don’t let their name put you off, this is a really good band. Another band that has that heavy, sludgie vibe, but this one from more of the revival style that’s been cropping up the last several years. These guys are like The Sword kind of 70′s throwback style, and really sound great. From Sierra Vista, Arizona, they came in to play two nights with Worm-Hole, here in El Paso and then in the LC. Great doomy cover of “Stranglehold”. ”

“Musically, PWM’s style and niche come strongly from where the band lives geographically. The band lives 12 minutes from Tombstone, “The town to tough to die” AZ. PWM’s self-branded heavy western Rock n Roll captures the modern spirit of the west. It’s their fuzzed out blues riffs and hard driving rhythm that provides the soundtrack for the Arizona high desert. Music made for biker on the southern desert highway or tequila drenched cowboy rocker. It’s that PWM heavy western rock n roll sound they can wear like a tattoo and raise their rock fists to. You need to hear these guys. Their hard rocking tunes are pretty f’n bad ass!”

"Arizona's Powered Wig Machine is a unique band to say the very least. The band combines spirited vocals, humorous lyrics and tasty riffs to create a one-of-a-kind sound. While the obvious description of the band would be Desert rock, after all the band is from Arizona, the band implies an unbridled jazzy rhythmic pattern which adds to their quirkiness. I guess that desert heat makes you a little crazy which is a good thing in this case. Become a Wighead today, listen now!"

“PWM have been powered out of Arizona since 2007 and is your quintessential rock band, a wee heavy and riffs so rocking you would think that they were made in a government laboratory. Lyrically PWM crafts lyrics that dabble between the worlds of sci-fi and comic book lore. Combine that with the music and you get 100% pure American Rock! Musically PWM Style and niche come strongly from where they live geographically hailing minutes from the legendary OK Coral in Tombstone. There self-branded heavy western Rock n Roll is the soundtrack for the Arizona high desert. The latest EP, available now from all the best online retailers, is called ‘Bearded Goddess’ – and if that doesn’t give you a clue to this band’s endearing brand of originality try the song titles: ‘Death By Suplex’, ‘Recipe for Badass’ and ‘Mullet Man’ are all indicative of the refreshing irreverence that makes PWM so popular on Arizona’s flourishing indie and college scene. ”
