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.

In many ways, their newest record The Ties that Bind really latches on to where its predecessor left off. They still stick all that fuzzy goodness that Stoner Rock and Metal are … [...] Click to raid more!

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 [...] Click to raid more!

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!

Gypsy Chief Goliath Citizens of Nowhere Album Cover

Ah, I am back in the ’70s or something!

Canadian stoner metallers Gypsy Chief Goliath are planning to unleash their third album Citizen of Nowhere later in 2016.

The band managed to recreate that unique sound. Stoner and Blues Rock, downturned sludgy Doom, and all of that with a deliciously metallic twist. Whereas we cannot really call their tune metal, nor should we. Right? To the point that I want to break out Easy Rider. But wait – the music on that one doesn’t really fit either. So, nope.

Now to produce this sound, the band went analog on a … [...] Click to raid more!
