about

"OWL (sometimes referred to as OVVL) are from Oakland, CA and have been honing their sound for some time now, playing heavy 70's rock (and i mean rock!) mixed with some psychedelic stoner jams. Think older bands like THIN LIZZY / BUDGIE / BLUE CHEER, and newer bands like WITCH / LECHEROUS GAZE / MAMMATUS. No rock band that is this adventurous can be described as being exactly like their contemporaries or the "classics," though. They tend to take a little from here, a little from there, and then put their own spin on it. Their sound boils down to multiple vocals and dueling guitars backed by a lockstep rhthym section , highlighted by one of the Bay Area's most ripping drummers, Clint, who just kills it in every band he plays in. The record keeps up the pace for the most part, which is something I like in my stoner rock. Favorite jams are "Cave Of Whispers," "Atlantean Key," and "Immaculate Misconception." -Maximum Rock 'n' Roll, October 2016

"Owl really begins to hit their stride here in these eight mystical, bombastic tracks! Moving beyond the trope of the mere psychedelic proto-metal that defined their first album, Screech takes the listener on a journey from the California coast, to the River Styx, and through many dangerous enclosed spaces in between! Tastes of NWOBHM, heavy blues, prog punk and delicately creepy instrumentals, sure to please every palate, that is if you have an appetite for HEAVY ROCK!"
