"Wheelfall have crafted an album that will rightly be lauded as a classic in years to come."
"The production is top-notch, the musicianship is excellent and it is easily a major highlight of 2012. If their last release went under your radar, you would be crazy to miss this one. They are a french band but something about this reminded me of the very best of US desert rock from the 90's but only (dare I say it) with better riffs. All I can say is buy it, it is a awesome album that every doom, stoner and sludge fan should own.....10/10."
"I’m pretty impressed with this one. It’ll crush you and have you begging for more."
"Right now, Wheelfall have released the best debut album in the Stoner genre in 2012. They are a band to follow blindly, and 'Interzone' is an album you'll need to play again and again and again…"
"This gigantic dome of a record leaves you breathless and in awe..."
"Everything is big and bold, a relentless assault of steady jabs and left hooks, punctuated by an occasional uppercut, each landing a jarring blow that renders you senseless and wobbly from the weight and force, but smiling from the pleasure of the brutal encounter."
"And sure enough, this is a heady mixture of slow and heavy sci-fi themed rock'n'roll that calls heavily on the influence of the original masters of the Doom riff as well as incorporating some modern inspiration to bring the sound into the modern era.[...] The band whip up a sonic storm that will render all the criticism null and void."
"Today, it is one hell of a beating they gave me. [...] I thought I was hallucinating, thinking that Pelican had restarted to play like on their first EP, or that Kyuss had decided to follow up to its fabulous "Asteroid". Maybe they had imagined it, unable to make it now, Wheelfall has done it for them. [...] Inherently, a fan of "The Thing" can not have bad ideas."
"One thing is for sure with such an album: Wheelfall definitely plays in the big leagues. Superbly performed and produced, the band delivers a "stoner-metal"(but the word is a bit too limited concerning their music), with heavy, martial, and we must recognise it, a bit desperate atmosphere. We think, of course, about a Neurosis who has not forgotten to engage the "groove" pedal of their leaden riffs."
"the spacey trappings seem to lend the music a certain interstellar roominess."
"As soon as you close your eyes, you’re transported, your body falters, your mind can’t help going back and forth, as the riffing is perfect and groovy. It’s not every day that you come across an album of this caliber!"
"Somewhere along the way, there came a common misconception that true genius takes time. [...] "Interzone" is a mind trip, with or without the drugs.
There aren't enough adjectives to accurately describe what Wheelfall does. Somewhere between doom guitars, stoner tendencies, and melodic grooves, they have found a home all their own."
"This album offers two hymns that France had never dedicated to the mighty Stoner"
"Wheelfall succeeded in imposing their touch throughout the album, claiming a unique style highlighted by very interesting and quite original vocals. [...] But with this album, there's no doubt that they will gain more fame and be able to play their music on stages in whole Europe"
"it’s a rape by rocco siffredi, some cerebral hammering that would make Staline green with envy, to every last decibel, scene of a slow and loud agony…We maybe have here the french gods of the riff"
"As if from Zabriskie Point, you could see the Earth retracting to the delight our fucking eyes, and let the last solar segments vanish in an ultimate flurry of ignition before let ourselves swallowed by the whole outer-space … for those who tend to forget that the desert is already outer-space …"
"Interzone immediately stands out as a must have album."
"Tracks like the aggressive-entering “Howling” or the fuzzed-out, Blues-inspired “Holy Sky” can easily be next decade’s/generation’s Stoner Rock hymns, while the suffocating and Desert-mist-y “It Comes From The Mist” underlines two of the ten reasons why you’re gonna love the French juicy riffage and endless, sick, down-tuned groove."
"The Metal Storm 2012 Awards are fast approaching, so let me just come right out and say it. In the category of best debut album, Wheelfall's Interzone is a serious contender.[...] Whether it's the "trippy" ambience of the album's intro, the hook of the riffs, or the Yob-like monster of a title track that one can get completely lost in, Interzone's package is put together quite nicely, and I'd be very surprised if stoner metal fans don't enjoy this one."
