There is a new Kuala Lumpur band to watch out for, Speed Witches. Featuring Emi from Tools of the Trade on bass, they play high spirited, galloping 70s-worshipping stonerrock like no one else in Southeast Asia.

I am quite happy to see how the influence of a wave of American heavy rock, and especially, the past greatness of bands like Mountain, Captain Beyond and Atomic Rooster has finally crept through the wastelands of Central Asia, leaking through the Malaysian Peninsula…

Will this be the beginning of a new trend, and a welcome addition to other Malaysian heavyweights of doomy tremolos like Daighila and GAUR?
