She Loves Pablo - Mother Of All Album Cover

Checkout this cool psychedelic stoner band from the sunny Croatia. Show them some love

She Loves Pablo is a three-piece band from Zagreb, Croatia. Started in late 2005. as a stoner-rock duo (Domagoj – guitars/vocals, Leo – drums), the band immediately recorded its first demo, entitled simply «She Loves Pablo». They played their first dozen shows in and around their hometown, sneaking into the Croatian stoner scene which was rapidly growing at the time, and is now kicking ass with amazing bands such as Ruiz, Cojones, Stonebride, Umor, Toro, and «Sonic Doom Records», an indie label making it all easier. In 2006. the band recorded their second CD, an EP entitled «Country Home», where they experimented with a different, more radio-friendly sound. The following year was a year of change. Hrvoje (bass) joined in, adding that low-frequency ass-kicking which was missing. This gave the band room to experiment and to step away from the stoner-rock stereotypes, combining blues influences with a massive, psychedelic groove. The band's debut album, «Mother Of All» was recorded and self-released in 2009. It contains 10 tracks from almost every era of the band, and beautifully sums up the work of She Loves Pablo. And the tumbleweed keeps rollin'...

Corrosion of Conformity - In the Arms of God (2005)

Corrosion of Conformity - In the Arms of God Album Cover

"After a lengthy break from recording, Corrosion of Conformity have come back strong on this 2005 release. As direct and tight as Wiseblood, this new outing displays the grooves and heaviness apparent with other NOLA bands, exemplified by heavyweights Down and Crowbar . It’s hard and heavy yet melodic throughout. C.O.C. remain one of the more overtly political bands on the hard rock scene. Tracks "Dirty Hands, Empty Pockets," and "Never Turns To More" are direct odes to the tarnished American dream and the struggle to remain individual as a human. The album also has a sublime and spiritual feel to it. The combination of these factors, along with the sludgy metal, makes this album feel like the direct descendent of such Black Sabbath classics as Masters of Reality and Sabotage, which is pretty amazing lineage." --Robert Arambel

Corrosion of Conformity - America's Volume Dealer Album Cover

Sixth C.O.C album and last album to feature longtime drummer Reed Mullin.

Like Metallica on "Load" and "Reload" it seems that COC have developed a taste for Southern rock. I can't fairly compare this to to "Load/Reload" combo fairly and do it any form of justice. The swagger and stomp of these tracks is undeniable and the vocals sound more like Ronnie Van Zant than they do James Hetfield. (Not that Warren Haynes also steps in for the some geust slide guitar!)

This release is much better than "Load/Reload" in it's focus. Some songs like "Over Me" and "Sleeping Martyr" sure seem to stomp along towards an identity that Metallica fans wouldn't even recognize had the bands not toured together.

This is NOT the life changing release for this band by any means. It IS a fun record and deserves better treatment than it's gotten though. - Snxke

Corrosion of Conformity - America's Volume Dealer Album Cover

My favourite C.O.C. album.

Corrosion of Conformity finally hit on the perfect lineup after a decade of shuffling members and knock out a bone crushing, yet astutely intelligent and passionate album. Wiseblood sounds not unlike its predecessor, Deliverance, with southern rock leanings and crushing Black Sabbathy riffs, but it's more methodical and deliberate and less adrenaline-hyped overload. The band lets the songs stretch out and breathe, allowing the listener to fully soak in the big rock vibe, without having it furiously hammered home.- Adem Tepedelen

Fourth album and first with Keenan as lead singer. This album marks a transition from the heavier sound of Blind to a more groove-based southern-style sound that also characterizes Wiseblood and America's Volume Dealer.

Corrosion of Conformity - Blind Album Cover

Third C.O.C. studio album and the first with Pepper Keenan.

Blind is in many ways the Corrosion Of Conformity album that showcased their full on transition from punk to metal. It also serves as an interesting, thrashy missing link between the crossover thrash of Animosity and the Technocracy EP; and the sludgy stoner/groove metal of Deliverance and Wiseblood and beyond. It works extremely well, combining the core elements of thrash, doom, punk, and groove metal into a diverse, yet consistent record.

The songs have stuck with me for quite a long time. The writing is brilliant for both the lyrics and instruments. The songs have crunch, catch, grime, and tact as qualities. It has consistency and diversity rolled up into one, big , delicious, metal burrito that works perfectly and is just so damn tasty. It's a molotov cocktail of styles ready to take on the system and fight authority. It's amazing just how Corrosion can ignore genre rules and put out a high quality Record such as this. It's the first metal CD I bought of my own volition and has remained a favorite of mine since. - psychoticnicholai

Here is the full-length debut (Earache Record) album from British seminal slugde band Fudge Tunnel. When this album was released in 1991, the stoner and doom metal explosion was still a decade away. You could count the number of popular, active sludge bands on two hands. But ‘Hate Songs in E Minor’ undeniably introduced one of the heaviest and most interesting bands of the 1990s.

Core - Revival Cover


Great forgotten stoner rock band from New Jersey.

"Core debuted with their first album, Revival, in 1996 on Atlantic Records. The album was produced by Billy Anderson and supported by tours with Fu Manchu, Clutch and Orange 9mm.[1] Despite this publicity, the album suffered due to limited promotion.[1] The band bounced back in 1999 with their follow up, The Hustle Is On on MIA Records and Tee Pee Records. This album features artwork by Arik Roper. The album was supported by a tour entitled "Riff Rock Railroad," which also featured Atomic Bitchwax and Nebula.

In addition to the two albums, Core was also featured on the MeteorCity Records compilation Welcome to Meteor City, an album that showcased numerous Kyuss-like bands and helped establish MeteorCity. They also contributed "Soul Shaker" (a cover of Aerosmith's "Soul Saver") to the Small Stone Records tribute compilation Right in the Nuts.

Raging Speedhorn - Raging Speedhorn Album Cover

Raging Speedhorn were formed in 1998 from the merging of the bands Soulcellar and Box. Through a 'frightening' stage presence and heavy re-working of riffs reminiscent of early Black Sabbath, the band quickly established itself as a major presence within the UK's heavy metal scene.

Raging Speedhorn featured two vocalists, a style largely inspired by the UK hardcore band, Hard to Swallow, who were latter vocalist, Bloody Kev's former band. The band's first single, "Thumper" (produced by industrial veteran, Marc Heal) was released in 2000 to significant critical acclaim.[citation needed] In 2001 they charted in the UK Singles Chart with "The Gush".

On early Raging Speedhorn recordings the music can be characterised by pounding basslines, heavily distorted riff-thick guitarwork and subject content generally (but certainly not exclusively) comprising of hedonism, drug-use, violence, antipathy for major band labels and depression. - wikipedia

After raising a few eyebrows via a competent debut album filled with budding promise, Acrimony proceeded to fashion one of the all-time classic stoner rock albums ever in 1996's mind-expanding and dimension-bending Tumuli Shroomaroom. Everything one could ask for from the genre's formative mid-'90s birth ritual -- sludgy classic rock grooves, corrosive acid/psych rock trips, epic space rock excursions, and pounding metallic aggression -- can be found here, allotted across nine songs of staggering creative breadth. - All Music Guide

Formed in Wales in 1991, Acrimony were one of the U.K.'s very best stoner rock bands, following in the desert trails simultaneously carved by American pioneers Kyuss with their powerful blend of Black Sabbath's heavy metal riffery, Hawkwind's space rock excursions, and Blue Cheer's fuzzed-out feedback psychedelics. - All Music

Stinking Lizaveta - Sacrifice and Bliss Album Cover

To balance such wild and burning disparities of influence takes immaculate skill, and the powerful-as-rampant-influenza stronghold of Philadelphia’s instrumental Stinking Lizaveta completely shit the competition. This is not a genre-hopping disparity (the band are defiantly evil and sludgy), but one of delivery. Jazz-inflected guitars dance wildly over muscular grinds of bass and drum, before crushing homophony arrives and unites them in purpose – you’re listening or dead. - popmusicology.wordpress.com

Stinking Lizaveta is a power trio from Philadelphia that plays heavy instrumental rock. MusicMight categorizes them as "doom jazz". The band gets its name from a character in the 1880 Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. - wikipedia

OK, these guys sound a lot like Sleep. A LOT. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that they sound a lot like Om, the post-Sleep power duo of Al Cisneros and Chris Hakius, 'cuz The Deep Blue do a similiar drone-chord pound over Tibetan chanting thing. Of course, The Deep Blue are a guitar, bass and drums trio, so the sound is more downtuned and crunchy and sludgy, but if there was ever a need to hear what Om would sound like as a full band, then The Deep Blue are here to serve. - myspace.com

UFOMAMMUT is what happens when Hawkwind and Electric Wizard fornicate within the cosmos and give birth to a celestial offspring. And Sons of Otis is the nanny. And Pink Floyd breastfeeds. This is aural HypnoTripDoom with Space-rock leanings. Godlike Snake is music for the head and not something that can be taken in sporadic listening. "Godlike Snake" is lava-lamp and good Buddha Thai fare. Maybe mushrooms. Acid for only the intrepid and only with a sitter. - hellridemusic.com

A definitive statement of the new Om energy, recorded on 24-track multi-track remote audio at their 2008 performance in New York. Mastered by Carl Saff, the audio quality is strikingly clear and full. On this night Om performed the seminal album Conference of the Birds live in its entirety. Newly invoked energy resonates in the sound of the band: the dynamics between Emil Amos and Al Cisneros have rendered these songs, and Om's sound, into a higher evolution.

Om - Conference of the Birds Album Cover

Conference of the Birds is my favourite Om album, the first song At Giza is incredibile.

Where the previous album, Variations on a Theme, opened with a squeal of feedback an overdriven bass, this album opens with relative calm, a deceptively simple rhythm at minor volume, and vocals that gently seep through the veil. This change in tone alone proves that simply being heavy is not necessary, and that the lyrical essence carries much more weight. The overall experience is similar to what one may find in the company of monks intoning sacred verses, and serves as a unique and powerful cleansing agent. - Toka
