VITRIOL INC. / A DARK UNITED FRONT: Kent Stump [ WO FAT ] Interview 02/21/2017
Written by Marc C. Pietrek 2017
Gather around the ‘ol campfire, ya rivet-heads!! I had the good fortune of doing a recorded telephone interview with (guitarist/vocalist) Kent Stump of Dallas, Texas-based (SUPREME!!) stoner rock/stoner metal trio, WO FAT. Let me begin by say ing that if you claim to love stoner rock/stoner metal but have yet to listen to WO FAT, do it and DO IT NOW….DO IT!! All of their albums are exceptional, but their latest offering, “Midnight Cometh’ (2016), raises the bar. Pure stoner rock/ stoner metal gold!!
During the course of our interview (see YouTube link below), we discussed his and the bands influences, Texas guitar heroes, what makes stoner rock/ stoner metal truly unique and what WO FAT has coming down the pike in 2017 amongst other things. A really friendly and laid back guy, Kent gave some pretty insightful answers, especially regarding one of heavy metal’s most followed sub-genres. After listening to the interview, take some huge bong rips (if you so choose to do so), dim the lights, put on some WO FAT and get launched into the audio stratosphere. Cheers, ya rivet-heads!!
