Wheel of Smoke started sounding out in 2005, and have since been dwelling within Belgian and European underground rock scenes. They fondly and passionately create a smoking mix of heavy, 70’s & 90's tinted rock/metal/prog/psych, blended with a dash of space and psychedelics.
The vibe varies from mesmerizing and melodic to pumping straightforward rock&roll sweetness.
Having played many gigs, they are experienced stage hitters. Creating spheres of musical heaviness, always raw and honest, hoping to bring exhilaration to your heart, mind & soul ♥

"Progressive, complex music is probably a fair description of what Wheel of Smoke are currently bringing to the table with their new album"Sonic Cure" however that is not the whole story, there is plenty of good old fashioned rock'n'roll to be found among the five tracks on offer here as well as good helpings of heavy psych and desert flavoured space-rock."
"What I like especially about the music of Wheel of Smoke is that way it wraps you up. The compositions find a way to curl around you and before you know it they are working from the inside. It is not as simple as a long fade in or even a slow build. It is more mercurial than that. Once they get you, you’re had. Give the new one a listen and see what I mean."
