The Austin 100: Wo Fat

Wo Fat.

Hometown:Dallas, Texas

Genre:Metal / Stoner Rock

Why We're Excited:Named for a Hawaii 5-0 villain, Wo Fat cuts its thick, doomy metal with bluesy psychedelia and an agreeable Southern-rock chug that makes lines like "We are the riffborn!" ring out like mantras for a life of heavy-metal triumph.
