Forewarning! Lower your expectations!
Being a band like Red Fang who have such a legacy when it comes to music videos must be a double edged sword at times. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t how I originally found out about the band, but at the same time, the expectation level for every single music video must be huge. ‘Dirt Wizard‘ takes a more traditional approach, there’s no LARPing, no driving of cars through drum kits and only minimal air guitar, instead the band opts for live footage from their recent touring scheduled. Which, to some extent, seems like a good idea. Here, the focus is on the huge stoner riffs and surging solos rather than anything else and the whole thing serves as a great reminder that you should definitely catch their blisteringly good live show if you can.
