“Hemplifier is a stoner/doom band from the island of Malta consisting of Emanuel Portelli (Thy Legion, Victims Of Creation, Pilgrimage, Animamortua), Bażaż (Lady Lizard, R.A.S.) & Dino Mifsud Lepre (Victims Of Creation, Pilgrimage) – we ‘joint’ in 2019. All of us 3 have experience & have been playing in other bands before, whilst also still active presently in other bands apart from Hemplifier. Some of us have been in the scene from the ‘90s. The trios’ target was to jam, get high, compose the heaviest riffs possible, have a good time & send seismic waves to the planet while aboard their spacecraft! We worship Amps & Vintage Gear! Our lyrical themes are that of sci-fi, aliens, the supernatural, occult, voodoo, weed, giants & a touch of local folklore & myth.”
The band’s debut album »The Stoner Side Of The Doom« was recorded live during September 2021 at the local Cornerhouse Studios. The album consists of 6 tracks from which 1 track, with the name of »Weedcraft«, they have already released as a single on November 17th, 2021. »Weedcraft« got also a very good response & was shared by the renowned 666MrDoom among others.
