Heavy Blues Rock Bands

Hi Guys,

Since learning guitar, I'm really getting into this Heavy Blues style of music.
Basically just blues music that is kind of Heavy Rock influenced.

Does anyone know any bands I should check out that kind of fit this style ?
Aggressive Dirty Heavy Rock Blues lol.

This is kind of an example of what i'm talking about
Chasing the Sun

I try pandora and it just keeps throwing SRV and Jimi Hendrix at me ( who I love, but im looking for somethin abit heavier )

I posted here because I wasn't sure to post this in the Rock or the Blues sub-section

John Mayer Trio - Who Did You Think I Was (different from his solo stuff, as he is purely blues with the trio)

John Mayer Trio - Everyday I Have The Blues (Memphis Slim Cover)

More along your lines? -> Doyle Bramhall II - Green Light Girl

hope these are what you're after

Gary Clarke Jr. Excellent Heavy Blues there
If you have never checked out the Wood Brothers. Do yourself a favor and look them up. Best. Band. Ever.

This is kind of a gimme but, not forgeting some of the classics of course like ZZ Top and AC/DC. They are classified as Blues Rock. Or newer stuff like Airborne (AC/DC). Just throwing some of the more obvious ones out there. You can always just put your own twist on their stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions !

that Brutus band is exactly what i was talking about !
also that Gary Clarke Jr. omg, so good.

seems there's not as many of these Heavy Blues bands out there as one might think !

most are either clearly sitting in the blues camp, or straight rock ( which i know has its roots in blues )

I think this is exactly what you're looking for...

There is this pretty much exact same thread in the Modern Rock Thread. I'd take a gander.
