Fonda died. So, in tribute to this pretty sad news, I watched this age-old movie called Easy Rider all over again. A film so cvlt, we don’t quite understand anymore why ever it got to such vertiginous heights of fame. Because it is actually pretty weird. And somewhat boring to boot, by modern standards.

But the main allure is – of course – the music. Totally stoned, but aligned to the theme always, the soundtrack does provide this fil-rouge that will make you continue. Until the very bitter end.

So, feeling all fuzzy with all that … [...] Click to raid more!

The Sticky Ones are on the prowl again. Those named after the 1919 Boston Flood disaster that drowned, injured or otherwise killed scores of people in a tsunami of sticky, sugary goo.

Morass of Molasses already got on our radar with their debut These Paths We Tread. An album that surely excels with its sticky sludge and sappy, somewhat slow-motion delivery of all types of Stoner-esque delights.

RockmusicRaider Review - Morass of Molasses - These Paths We Tread - Album Cover Sometimes it feels good to drown your sorrows in stoner-esque fuzziness. Remembering times that can only be fathomed by those old enough to recall the sounds, smells and sticky feeling of sweaty underground music halls. Distorted goodness served on the holy platter of wah-wah in all its bluesy glory. This is soul healing remembrance indeed.

From Zep to Black Sabbath and back we heard it all, now didn’t we? The gods of substance-induced wailing be praised. And many an old band has been down that very well-traveled road already.

Now, the good thing is that many new bands attempt to [...] Click to raid more!

Hell’s Bells!

Now I am really feeling stoned. I just successfully navigated through a series of listens of the US stoner/doom band Void King and their debut and self-released album There is NothingVery nihilistic, ain’t it?

You will find an intense soundscape with a gazillion of downturned, excellent riffs assaulting you from every corner.

The record surprises with a grungy, doomish, metal-infused Stoner Rock from back in time. All of this fittingly supplemented by Jason Kindred‘s gritty vocals. At times their tune sounds like some unclean, drunken version of the biggies in the Doom world, like Paradise Lost[...] Click to raid more!
