I am SO PISSED this is not getting a physical release. Their other live album was fantastic, and I have a DVD and LPs for that.


That settles it. My next purchases will be Pelagial, Windhand, and Russian Circles. I'm also interested in the new Sub Rosa.

I've got Earthless 2007 release-rhythm's from a cosmic Sky. The guitarist is from Nebula-a favorite stoner band of mine. The dude just jams and jams.

 

 That album is like 3 songs-two of them over the 20 minute mark. That said, for blues based jam stoner rock, they are so good. It's awesome, but yes it takes some patience.

Still mad how stupidly expensive the Ocean LPs were.

For the record I had a chance to buy the limited box set and I passed. I could not justify it given the shipping. Sorry, it's not THAT good.

Shipping stopped me too. That was outrageous. IIRC it was well over half the cost of the LPs.

Yup.

I'll have to give them a listen. Been trying to find more music of this genre recently. What album would you start with?

post #12413 of 25531


Because why not. A neat little piece of Technical Grindcore I haven't listened to in a while.

Full album with an incredible playing of 12 minutes?

At least you won't feel like you've wasted much time if you didn't like it. :-D

I do like it, though.

Are you asking about stoner in general, or this band?

 

I have Earthless' Rhythms Cosmic Sky from 2007. It's good-but songs are sooo long. Like Stevie Ray Vaughn on acid if he just kept playing a continuous guitar solo for 30 minutes straight...Led Zeppelin has some live stuff like that-these ridiculous medleys that approach 30 minutes-cool in that you get the concert vibe but feel indulgent-to me anyway.

 

I lump stoner into the whole retro rock thing-The Sword, Witchcraft,

 

If you want to investigate the origins of the genre....
there's plenty of more bite sized songs

 

if you haven't heard Kyuss Blues for the Red Sun or Welcome to Sky Valley-I would start with those two. Those are the most classic to me in all of stoner. I really like Welcome to Sky Valley.

 

Fu Manchu has a fuzzed out classic (well several) called In Search of... which is killer. Fuzzed out riffs that sound so fat you can almost see them through bong haze.

 

And, I would add Monster Magnet's classic, Spine of God. I'd add Power Trip and Dopes to Infinity. I'm a big MM fan.

 

 Those three to me are like First Generation in BM terms.Kyuss, Fu Manchu and Monster Magnet.

 

Nebula is good, too. They were started w/ some guys from Fu Manchu. Actually, Eddie Glass who writes most of Nebula's music and sings and plays lead guitar played on In Search Of. Nebula have a bit more of a punk edge mixed in their stoner. I would recommend To The Center and Atomic Ritual. Great psychedelic punk tinged hard rock. Great riff rock, vocals not so much. MM and Kyuss seal the deal in the vocal department.

 

But, there's some pretty good newer stuff as well. I would throw the new Clutch in the stoner genre. And stuff like HOF that crosses into extremity.

 

It pays to be selective as stoner can get repetitive. But doom is where the action is now. I'd then throw in some stoner doom classics like Sleep, Pentagram, Spirit Caravan (anything Wino's done-kind of the Lemmy of doom), Electric Wizard, YOB, MDB, UFOmammut and the list goes on.

 

But, I may have misunderstood your question...

I was just asking about Nebula, but thanks a lot for the detailed answer! My dad used to listen to Grateful Dead concert recordings all the time so I grew up with a bit of that.

I might listen to that one too. Can't say no to SRV on acid. :D

I've never been able to get into those classic "Stoner Doom" bands. I did really enjoy Alkahest's release from earlier this year, though.

Yeah, I never got into the Dead, but I'd say Earthless is more of the Dead style of long jams with an updated hard blues rock sound. Nebula, like Fu Manchu has a more song oriented approach. But, it's still more the atmosphere than any individual song.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

Just finished this one up. Best way I can describe it is Atmospheric/Post Grindcore, and it's incredible. Definitely give it a chance if Grindcore isn't usually your thing.
