If Lemmy dabbled in acid, Mötorhead might have sounded a bit like London stoner-metal maestros Riddles, whose new double A-side 7'' single 'Psychedelic Power Engine Iron Claw Thunder Mistress' (Metal much? Now THAT's a title) offers a diesel-spitting hog-ride straight through the doors of perception (man!), hurtling through punk, doom and flamboyant NWOBHM influences at 180mph. Listen below to our exclusive stream of 'Wizards Of War', the single's righteous B-side, and bow to the masters.

To celebrate Record Store Day, Riddles will be playing a set at London's Rough Trade East on Saturday at 7pm. Frankly we're scared for the staff.
