Kyuss, Black Sabbath, RUSH, The Stooges, Clutch
Forged in the fires of Mount Dandenong, this unlikely trio have emerged to unleash sonic doom on all non believers!
“When they come in with “Spud King,” the way that bass hits your ears you know it’s going to be a fine listen with a fine brewsky, not something from a six-pack.”
“From where I sit, stoner rock charm is a very peculiar and particular kind of charm, and Riff Fist have all the earmarks. A trio of lugs from Down Under, they’re armed with inside jokes, guitar-bass-drums and steady Fu Manchu, Clutch and Kyuss influences, a cartoon Clint Eastwood on their cover (by Brian Koshak) and a four-track debut EP of riff-led shenanigans that they’ve decided to call — just in case you didn’t get the point from the fact that they’re called Riff Fist — Fistful of Riffs.”
“Although I could make sound comparisons to The Datsuns, Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age, for the pure groove value and great 1970’s influenced stoner rock that Riff Fist produce, they have a sense of humour and an undeniable self-confidence that is all their own.
Furthermore, despite the comparisons to US and NZ bands, ‘Fistful of Riffs’ is noticeably an undeniably Australian EP.”
“Within the first few seconds of Riff Fist’s debut EP, Fistful of Riffs, I was hooked. Opening with a drum line and a riff so distorted and crisp it immediately brought Clutch and Frankenbok to mind, there is such a fantastic groove/stoner rock feel to opening track “Spud King” that it had me headbanging almost instantly with a smile planted firmly on my face.”
“4 songs 23mins of straight up ass kicking stoner comedy rock and roll... This is a really cool EP and if you dig Clutch, Monster Magnet, WO fat, then check these guys out.”
“filled with explosive riffs that will break bones.”
“How much does it cost to feed your bass player each week, he is huge...
It's actually very cheap as he lives off nothing but riffs and we have fuck loads of those.”
