"Woodwall are a band that I discovered only the other day but I have already listened to their album at least a dozen times. It's simply that great. If you're a fan of Kyuss, Sleep, Isis and Pelican then this is the album for you. As Woodwall include some great Post-Rock/Post-Metal vibes into their music and it's still sounds so damn fresh and original"

"Damnit, I thought I was dealing with an American desert band after I had listened to WoodEmpire. But guess what? Woodwall hails from Tuscany, Italy. So, that means, finally another Italian band which is an exception to the rule that Italian music sucks. One moment its stoner that rocks like theres no tomorrow, you get, and the next song is laid-back stoner with some light psychedelic moments."
"King Stuste" e "Red Toad" cavalcano scenari più classici ma sempre rivisti in chiave Woodwall e le quantità di erba che ci siamo fumati fino a questo momento della nostra gita tra i boschi iniziano a farsi realmente sentire."
" “WoodEmpire”, the debut album by WOODWALL, features nearly forty minutes of music over six tracks. The entire offering showcases plenty of grooving Stoner Metal riffs and the gruff, which call to mind the likes of the desert / Stoner rock circles. The band cites the likes of BLACK SABBATH, KYUSS and SLEEP among their influences, and you can definitely feel the retro doominess combined with rolling bass lines and headbanging grooves during the faster paced tracks likes “Locrian” and “King Stuste”. Nothing is overtly technical or flashy as the entire album takes you back to the glory days when rock was rock. Don't mistake that last statement with a lack of heaviness, as WOODWALL does belt out some gargantuan-sized riffs that will just lay you out. "
"My initial assumption was that this would be something of an Electric Wizard-esque stoner doom record, but it's quite a bit lighter than that. While definitely psychedelic, and still metal, this record comes with more of a Pink-Floyd-playing-blues-rock flavor to it than I'd anticipated. That works well, and it makes this extremely easy to get into for more casual listeners who may not be ready for thunderously heavy music."
