Wino  


For those few who don't know, Wino is one Scott Weinrich, a revered man in the underground doom metal world. Since the late 70's he has plied his trade, never seeking superstardom but content to play his music on his terms. He has led three great bands of his own (The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, and The Hidden Hand), as well as hooking up in St. Vitus and Place Of Skulls for a time. For whatever reason, both his stints in other bands and his own never last more than a few years, and perhaps with that in mind, he finally went solo debuting in 2009 with Punctuated Equilibrium. Wino has always been about high-class, stoner-influenced doom metal, and that's the case here as well, his guitar work and vocals in top-notch form as always, with his new rhythm of Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster and bassist Jon Blank (sadly, recently deceased) supporting Wino in fine fashion. There's really no surprises here for the Wino fan, just more high-quality stoner/doom from the man himself. More recently he has teamed up with Conny Ochs and the duo have been performing mostly acoustic sets.
