Weedevil, a stoner/doom metal band, was formed in 2019 by Flávio Cavichioli (Forgotten Boys/Pin Ups). From the beginning, the band stood out by blending influences from heavy metal, doom, stoner, and psychedelic rock, creating a unique and engaging sound. With Flávio Cavichioli on drums, Poison on vocals, Jimmy Olden and Henrique Bittencourt on guitars, and Cláudio Funari on bass, Weedevil quickly gained a loyal following.

The band’s first album, »The Return«, released in 2022, received critical acclaim and helped solidify the band’s position in the metal scene. »The Return« followed in the footsteps of heavy metal classics while incorporating the dark, dense atmosphere of doom.

In 2023, Weedevil released the split EP »Cult Of Devil Sounds« in collaboration with the Mexican band Electric Cult, expanding their international reach. The continued success led to the release of their second album, »Profane Smoke Ritual«, in 2024, which delves into themes of spirituality, mystery, transcendence, and occultism.

“The album »Profane Smoke Ritual« is a deep journey through the mysteries of spirituality and liberation, inspired by figures like Crowley, Lilith, and Baphomet. Our lyrics invite listeners to dive into reflections on existence and the meaning of life. With a unique fusion of styles and an intuitive approach to composition, each track of this album seeks to provoke a significant impact, encouraging profound thoughts and a deeper connection with our spiritual journey.”

The band has performed at various important festivals, including Dopesmoke (Bahia), Doom Over BH (Belo Horizonte), and Koolmetal, and has opened for bands such as Asteroid, Pesta, and Lucifer. Weedevil is known for their intense and atmospheric live performances, transporting audiences to a world of shadows and rituals.
