No, I'm not looking for recs. I have enough on my to-hear list.

Since pretty much the only stoner band that gets regular luvin' around here is Electric Wizard, I decided to make this.

So discuss stoner metal.

Last good album you heard?
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

High on Fire > Om > Sleep.

Seriously, they were holding each other back...

Deadit: ^Yes please! Got into them like 2 days ago, great energies and vibe.

Om I find to be surprisingly accessible. Maybe it's because you don't need to think to much and just chill with the music, but I'm surprised I like 3 riffs stretched over 15 minutes...

Sleep are just cool.

What can you people tell me about Sahg?

I really must get more Sleep (no pun intended). It's sad how little I have.
Otherwise, The Obsessed are pretty awesome. Anyone for Acid Bath?

A very long time ago, before I was really into metal and before I even knew such a genre existed, some dude recommended me Acid Bath. I have yet to hear them.

Album?

I really like When the Kite String Pops.
But they only have one other album: Pagan Terrorism Tactics. Both are sweet albums.
I reckon get When the Kite String Pops first though.

And cheers to you and Powerhead for the Acid Bath rec

I'm just getting into Sludge and Stoner, and i'm just wondering...what's the difference between them? /stoner n00b

Sludge is pretty much the combination of slow doom metal and hardcore punk

many stoner bands include elements from sludge and vice versa so it might get a bit hard to distinct them from each other at first, but just listen to something like... Neurosis or Cult Of Luna and after that Sleep and you'll notice the difference

Stoner is more like Blues for the Red Sun and Holy Mountain. Sludge is more like Dopesmoker and the heavier slower stuff that followed it.

Ah, okay. Thanks. I don't think i have any stoner bands then. I'll try and get a few and compare them.

Not really. That's more like stoner doom (Electric Wizard, Gates of Slumber, Sleep, etc.).

Sludge involves a harsher approach towards the riffs and as Kepuix said, is influence from edgier music.
Famous sludge bands are Eyehategod, early Mastodon (prog sludge), Down (leans much more to the stoner side of the equation), and many other bands from the NOLA scene.

i take it that Sleep would be a good stoner band to start with?

They would. Start with Holy Mountain.

Also try Kyuss - Welcome To Sky Valley.

I recommend starting with the big three stoner albums - Kyuss' Blues for the Red Sun, Sleep's Holy Mountain and Monster Magnet's Spine of God

^Not identical, but the blues influences are usually there.

And I love Electric Wizard obviously, but I like Acid King more than Acid Bath.

No. Granted, Holy Mountain is good, but Dopesmoker is just so immensely crushing.

Bongzilla's Amerijuanican is also a great stoner album. Stonesphere = best driving song ever.

I heard some songs from Amerijuanican. Crushing stuff, and surprisingly interesting drumming.

I WANNA GET HIIIGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Shred Head: Unfortunately, EW's heavy as fvkk atmosphere isn't easily found, let alone such a doom-foretelling one.
Goatsnake have a very heavy atmosphere as well, but aren't nearly as nihilistic sounding.

There are some great bands in this genre. Nobody's mentioned Church of Misery yet, so I'll put in a plug for them. Their earlier stuff, particularly the splits with Iron Monkey and sHeavy, are some of the best psychedelic heavy music out there. Once they lost that vocalist their quality waned a bit.

Also, if you like stoner metal and don't own IB's "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida," stop posing and get it. Period.

I wasn't as crazy about Death is the Communion. Not as much of the hazy stoner metal atmosphere as I would've liked.

As far as HoF is concerned, Art of Self Defense if the best album that no one's ever heard.

Not a single Cathedral shoutout? For shame.

Man there are so many good bands in this genre its ridiculous. I think doom/stoner is the only genre of metal that never wore itself out. Its fans are still totally content with the same grooving riffs and sad melodies.

Quote by The Evil Hat

Huge difference. Instead of describing what the genre sounds like, I'll just post clear cut examples of bands that will show you.

Sludge bands include: Eyehategod (probably the biggest band besides Crowbar and Soilent Green although aren't pure sludge), Grief, and Corrupted.

Stoner metal is less clear cut because stoner metal is basically stoner rock too heavy to be called rock and roll. Bands like Sleep, and Cathedral after The Ethereal Mirror are good examples.

Honestly I prefer to just call it all DOOM, it simpler, and even it it all isn't really doom (bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Fu Manchu), I put it in the pantheon of doom bands because it all gives me the same sort of feeling.

I think DITC > AOSD

AOSD is a great album too, but something about DITC makes it one of Matt Pike's best albums

A couple of mates of mine. They broke up a while ago, and maybe I'm biased, but I think they were a great band, and it's a real shame they broke up.

This is my favorite genre, I love it all from stoner rock, to metal, to sludge, doom and drone. The perfect music for me.
