The Wisdoom is a heavy psych sludge band based in Rome (Italy) and formed at the end of 2010 by Dario Iocca, Francesco Pucci and after joined by Luigi Costanzo and Daniele Neri. 

In June 2011 the band released their first self-title EP that received enthusiastic feedbacks from the critics and audiences, so much that the song “Katabasis” has been selected to be part of the soundtrack of the movie “Paura” by the italian masters of explotations films Manetti Bros.
They are now going to release for the label Heavy Psych Sounds Records: “Hypothalamus”, their first full length with 4 brand new songs for 45 minutes of pure ecstatic violence through a desperate and lysergic trip over sleep phases. "Hypothalamus" is mixed and mastered by Lorenzo Stecconi (who worked with Ufomammut, The Secret and his band Lento)
The Wisdoom have also shared the stage with world renowned bands such as Orange Goblin, Eyehategod, Hate, Peter Pan Speedrock, and taking part in festivals like Duna Jam, Stoned Hand Of Doom and Acid Fest.


""THE WISDOOM" is a down tuned pressure surfing band with a traditional italian doom attitude like Ufomammut or Lento. I didn’t expect the good sound quality, however thanks to Lorenzo Stecconis skills it comes fat like a wall. Speaking of their music, it hasn’t really surpised me as it is nothing new in the world of doom, but it definitely has function and is well structured, therefore I like what I hear. 

The spooky and echoing voice comes to the right point and gives you a roomful feeling. The permanent up and downs of the songs are pleasant to listen to, but sometimes it makes it hard to follow the whole song cause of the riff repetitions. If you like riff orianted Doom and Sludge with some space parts you will like "Hypothalamus" too, its full of power and dark energy. After their first bigger shows(Desert Fest Berlin; Stoned Hand of Doom) I'm curious what will happen in the future. Thumb up for this new and fresh band!""
