Slo Burn - Demo (1996)


Another stoner oldies but goldies. Slo Burn's Demo and Amusing The Amazing. I think that everyone knows who Slo Burn was and and there's no need to introduce them.

Remember, this is a demo so the sound is lo-fi.

The Want - 5 O'Clock Orange (1996)


I just found this album in a pawn shop (I paid only 1 euro!!!) a few days ago, so here's my rip. I highly recommend this to fans of retro rock! Just check the song below, Ballroller is a killer song.

"The Want put out two albums in the 90s but are best remembered for their "greatest hits" compilation on Southern Lord Records released in 2000. They draw heavily from 70s influences (Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath are usually noted[1]) and have been criticized for being too loyal to their roots. The Want released their debut album, 5 O'Clock Orange, in 1996 on Mack-Daddy Records. A follow-up, Acid Millennium, was released the following year. In 2000 Southern Lord Records released a compilation of songs from the first two albums with the misleading title Greatest Hits Vol. 5. They also recorded "Let the Music Do the Talking," which appeared on Right in the Nuts, a tribute to Aerosmith released by Small Stone Records. After the Want disbanded, bassist Jeff Mackey joined Eighteen Wheels Burning and later recruited former Want guitarist Adam Valk for the same project." - wiki

Umor - Umor EP (2009)


Back to Croatia and one of my favourite stoner rock scene. Umor are from Zagreb, Crotia. They describe themselves as loud and heavy atmospheric rock/metal band with stoner and doom influences. I loved their split with Cojones (another great Croatian band) back in 2007 and listening to it everyday for a very long time. This EP almost as good as that Split. Highly recommended!

Naked City - Torture Garden (1989)


More grindcore next month.

"Naked City was an avant-garde music group led by saxophonist and composer John Zorn. Active primarily in New York City from 1988 to 1993, Naked City was initiated by Zorn as a "composition workshop" to test the limits of composition (and improvisation) in a traditional rock band lineup. Their music incorporated recognizable elements of jazz, surf, classical, heavy metal, grindcore, country, punk rock and other genres.

Torture Garden is a compilation album by John Zorn's band Naked City featuring Yamatsuka Eye on vocals. The album is a collection of "hardcore miniatures" from Naked City and Grand Guignol" - wiki.

PainKiller - Execution Ground (1994)


The last one from PainKiller, the double album Execution Ground.

"The first disc of this inventive and unsettling two-disc set features three long improvisations that show off the band's dub influence. The second disc, subtitled "Ambient Dub," is a rethinking/remix of the third and first improvs on the first disc. Overall less thrashy than some Painkiller excursions, the improvisations here are striking for their greater sonic space without sacrificing any of the heaviness" - wiki

Be forewarned, this music is not for the weak-minded :). Here comes PainKiller's debut EP - Guts of a Virgin.

Black Pyramid/Odyssey split 7" (2012)


Requested by Odyssey. No download link this time.

Limited 200 coloured vinyl. A split 7" vinyl single between US heavy rockers BLACK PYRAMID, and Swedish ODYSSEY, both bands bringing out a track of heavy and stoned rock with thick layers of distortion and sonic madness.

"Odyssey is a trio consisting of Jonas Pedersen on vocals, Jesper Karlsson on drums and Marcus Ă–stensson on guitar. The band came about after many discussions between the guys about creating a band that possesed a heavy sound and a driving energy. In spring 2010, it took shape. Already on day one Odyssey knew what to do, after only two rehearsals the first demo was recorded and the first gig booked.

And that pace has continued ...

After recording numerous demo tapes and an EP in true DIY spirit Odyssey will release their first full-length album on Transubstans this spring.

Odyssey is difficult to determine in genre, but think of Sleep, Converge and Pink Floyd and you have an idea of what is Odyssey. Over time, it has in several occasions been called garage-stoner.
With the chaotic gigs and a personal stage presence Odyssey have been able to travel around on Sweden's club scene and festivals. Shit goes down, people get hurt ... This is the Odyssey." - info from the band

Sun Eater - Sun Eater (2012)


Wow, fantastic stuff, thick psychedelic grooves all over the place. Really relaxed jams with a subtle heavier side. Thanks to Ben for sending me his work.

"Sun Eater is a psychedelic stoner trio from Tacoma, WA. Comprised of three college students between the ages of 19 and 20, Sun Eater is bringing a fresh sound to the psych rock genre with an emphasis on heavy riffs, intense guitar solos and quality. Founded in the Fall of 2011 by Ben Block and Kirby Lochner, they soon picked up Daniel Salas on the drums and the band has been the same ever since. With diverse musical backgrounds between the three members, Sun Eater is sure to turn heads with a strong, new sound. Working hard in the basement for the past six months they are finally ready to release their first debut EP, recorded at the band's home in Washington state." - info from the band

The series of requests will continue until the end of the month.

Shock Radar - Generator EP (2012)


Another day, another great request.

Shock Radar are an experimental, alternative/stoner rock band from New York, USA. The Generator EP is their newest release. The sound is classic but yet original. Actually, some of these songs sound like they could have come from Soundgarden's Superunknown or Down on the Upside recording sessions (which of course is a big compliment). Some highly recommended grooves, thanks to Lee for sharing this!

Dead Man's Band - Dead Man's Band (2012)


WOW! A massive, killer album. This record receives the first Stoner Mountains's Official Seal of Quality :D. This is for all you retro rockers out there.

Hailing from Piraeus, Greece. Dead Man's Band is a huge tribute to all the fabulous bands from the 60's & 70's. Blues rock with psychedelic overtones and powerful female vocals (the Greek Ann Wilson?). The album was recorded live at the Penthouse Gravevard Studios in Piraeus. Dead Man's Band contains 9 great tracks and it’s tough for me to find a favourite song on this album as they’re all so good. And finally, this is fucking underground! No internet page, no physical releases (maybe some vinyls in summer) and no record label involved. Simple, no promotion. Everything is in our hands!
