Wheel of Smoke was born in 2005, and have since dwelled within the Belgian underground rock scene. They create a smoking mix of heavy, 70’s & 90’s tinted rock, blended with a dash of space and psychedelics. The music varies from mesmerizing and melodic to pumping, straightforward rock & roll. Wheel of Smoke invites you to join their realms of cosmic inferno…
In March 2011, a first album ‘In Sense’ was released, with a second full-length ‘Signs Of Saturn’ in 2013. The band’s 2015 ‘Enter The Pyramid’ EP was followed by their 2016 album, ‘Mindless Mass’. Since joining on in 2017, Johan Overloop, an expert analogue synth builder and player, has given their sound a more spacious and broader spectrum, opening doors for farther reaching writing concepts.
The new album ‘Sonic Cure‘ explores the more adventurous side of psychedelic rock, incorporating post-progressive psych-rock elements and harmonic vocals. The story within the album is based on an unknown, far-off planet with giant loudspeakers embedded into its surface, serving as sound-healing ritual temples for its alien inhabitants. Let Wheel of Smoke take you on the journey for the quest of Sonic Salvation…
