I love OM. That album is great. I saw Sleep earlier this year, so gooooood.
Are the bands Sleep and/or Kyuss regarded as Stoner Doom? If yes than I have Stoner Doom material, studio and live, in my album collection.
Sleep is definitely stoner doom. I got a contact buzz watching them live.
I've been listening to Telekinetic Yeti, good doom:
What about Monster Magnet?
Ive never heard of this genre but started to listen after i was seeing these band on ytube poping up in my search for Drone and listening to whats considered “post punk” bands like Fall of Efrafa, Lightbearer, Cult of Luna. Then found drone bands like Sunn O)), Sebazius. Heck i had no idea these bands have been around for a while.
It took a long time to take the punk blinders off. Lol
I've always had a soft spot for the Melvins.
Perhaps the start of it all?
Listening to Forming the Void - Rift
Ohhhhh, now I get it.
These are the names of bands?
Man, I'm old.
Can't have a doom thread without this one.
ya the Melvins go way back
I thought it was the name of a single band. Thanks for enlightening me.
I'm pretty sure Sabbath's "Master of Reality" would be around the start of things. But, Melvin's have been making stoner/doom for a loooong time.
This is a tough genre to pin down. Much like punk or garage, there are a ton of offshoots. I like Sleep, some Electric Wizard, Windhand etc. But I also like Dead Meadow, Uncle Acid and True Widow. I would consider all of them stoner for sure, the latter three wouldn't be doom, though.
What about Japanese bands Boris and/or Mono? Or are those considered as being more in the Industrial realm?
Had this one in the green single sided etched. I liked it.
