Is Sleep always this expensive? The tickets are 35 euros here, which is a lot compared to usual prices.
You realize that Sleep had not been playing together as a band for many years, right? They basically reunited as a super-group now that Om and High on Fire are gaining popularity. I think they didn't intend to tour again as Sleep, but they did that ATP show and people loved it, so they toured on Holy Mountain again.

Anyway, I paid probably almost 50 to see them in San Francisco, and it was super loving worth it. Matt Pike is always insane live, and it was great to hear Holy Mountain all the way through, though the Dopesmoker excerpts was really why I went.

That's a shame. I used to enjoy posting songs to the stonerrock subreddit, nothing but cool dudes there from my experience. There's a sludge subreddit now too.

Been pretty quiet over here in Bristol, but Orange Goblin are playing with Church of Misery, Dopefight and Slabdragger the day before we leave to the Netherlands - and we're planning on going to another gig in Tilburg the day before Roadburn starts, then there's Roadburn itself of course, plus the Afterburner. So...

Holy poo poo, life-changing thread. As a dude with a pretty deep love of a vast number of different musical styles I always felt kind of ashamed of my opinion that metal basically started great and got progressively worse from the 70s on. I never liked the really fast really heavy stuff or the wanky theatrical stuff much, and screamy vocals make me cringe; that poo poo is awful. I think the most recent metal album I liked enough to bother hanging on to was Rust in Peace by Megadeth

Anyway recently I stumbled across this http://www.pitchfork.com/reviews/tr...ns-of-light-ii/ and goddamn how was I not aware this genre existed until now? This is seriously the best! People have been making awesome metal all this time it's just that nobody bothered to tell me. So I am gonna check out a lot of the stuff in this thread, thanks for posting it all. Or if you wanna recommend what to listen to first, go ahead, I'm all about the chill stuff and the bluesy stuff

Just bought tickets for Orange Goblin in Swansea next month. I missed my chance to see them when they played Cardiff uni's student union years ago so I'm not passing it up again, especially since Eulogy for the Damned is the best thing they've done since Big Black.

I really miss their Frequencies/Time Travelling Blues sound though.

I know so many people that say "there's poo poo music to listen to anymore, blah, blah, blah," but yet when I tell people there's so much out there that's great, but just has to be found or re-discovered, they don't want to hear it or they tell me my tastes suck. Really they just don't want to put the time info finding what I'm trying to explain to them. Their loss.

So, yeah, I enjoyed reading someone talking about "re-discovering" they're love for rock 'n roll again.

As a suggestion -- which I don't know if it's exactly what you're looking for a band I discovered right here in this very thread: Year Long Disaster. I've been listening to them for two weeks straight now and still haven't gotten tired of them.

Have fun finding new stuff and welcome back to rock 'n roll!

Gah! All this time I just needed to know that what I was looking for was called stoner or doom or whatever. I guess it's mostly my fault for assuming those prefixes would just be the same thing as the death or black or whatever varieties. But I blame my metal-loving friends too cause I've been all like "damnit, where is the metal that sounds like early Black Sabbath?" to them before and that seems to be basically the definition of this stuff.

The same thing happened to me about a year ago. I had been a heavy/fast/slow/loud/metal fan who had kind of given up on finding anything new that really moved me. I had listened to bands like Sleep, Electric Wizard and Weedeater but I had no idea that there was such a substantial genre to explore until I happened across this thread. There is tons of good poo poo. A lot of it absolutely crushing, I had no idea. I didn't know how to use the words "doom", "stoner" or "sludge" to find good stuff because I didn't know there was good stuff to find. Now I know. Thanks slow music thread dudes!

Yeah, if I had to depend on my friends to suggest new music that I might like, I'd be hosed. This thread has been so helpful by having so many recommendations from folks looking, or playing, the same type of music. It's been a lot better research tool than surfing YouTube, LastFM, or Amazon for hours only to find nothing.

Since you mention Black Sabbath, I'll suggest sHEAVY's Electric Sleep for you. You can pretty much take it from there.

Count me in for another lucky one to find his love for music again thanks to this thread.

One buddy introduced me to stoner stuff years ago, but when I lost contact with him, I kind of slumped into listening to only few bands and of course that gets boring in the long run. Only being aware of the stuff in the mainstream made me declare creativity and good music dead, but somehow I stumbled upon this thread and realised there isn't a lack of good music, there's almost too much of it. I keep finding all sorts of cool bands and I actually have trouble finding the time to listen to all the albums I just HAVE to get.

You're welcome, hahaha. I got to see Earth last Summer for the first time ever and it was pretty life altering. Also got to chat up and hang out with Dylan Carson for a bit. One of those moments where you're playing it cool but on the inside you feel like a 13 year old girl getting to meet Justin Bieber.

I'm not big on Orange Goblin and I've tried really hard to like those guys. But, check Eagle Twin out. They're pretty fantastic. IMO what Shrinebuilder should have sounded like. You know you're going to be in for a ride when the opening track features Mongolian throat chanting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL2Z_baXaoY

Also, not sure if it was mentioned but Om. I really only like the album Variations on a Theme but you might like their others. Sleep was already mentioned but when that band broke up it split into two factions that are both really good. Al Cisneros/Chris Hakius and Om. Matt Pike and High on Fire. They each have completely different approaches. Om expands more on what was going on with later Sleep material and HoF is more sludge/thrash.

This HoF song takes me from 0 to 11 every time I hear it. It just makes me want to throw cars over mountains.

Dude, Orange Goblin do Sabbath better than anyone! This cover of Hand of Doom is seriously one of my favorites, I probably listen to it more than the original now. The funky drums and bass pocket are out of control

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDeJV9g0N5g

Edit: also, I think I'm in the minority, but my favorite Om album is the last one, where Hakius left and Steve Albini produced it. God Is Good. It's got a little more technical drumming, but I think the overall build and sound is "there" in a way that it wasn't on the previous albums. Either way they are super loving killer live, so go see them (and any Sleep related project) every time

@JonnyMondo I haven't listened to the record they did with Albini yet. I'm definitely slacking. There is soooooo much music to check out these days it's unreal. I'll put it on the fast track to the top of my listen list.

My problem with Orange Goblin is that a lot of the riffing is just generic pentatonic guitar stuff. It sounds like dad rock to me. Which I know, I know, Stoner Rock is always straddling that line anyway. But I just want to hear something unique and I don't hear that in OG. I'm down with someone being heavily influenced by another band like Black Sabbath and taking it to a different place but if all you're going to do is rehash all the same old tricks I'd rather just pop on Paranoid and call it a day.

I'll admit, too, that I'm partial to Southern influences over British in metal which is why I like bands like Crowbar, Eagle Twin, and DOWN so much. Change that to Southwest influence like Earth's last couple of albums and I'm in guitar heaven.

After hearing Matt's concept behind this album I can't wait to hear the whole thing. Basically Jesus had a twin who gave up his life so Jesus could be born, when the twin died he became a time traveler. wow.

I've already been listening to a lot of Sleep/Isis/Electric Wizard, but I guess I'm looking for something that's a little more dynamic instead of a wall of noise. Isis nails the southern rock vibe though.

Chiming in with the "neo 70s hard rock (or whatever you should call it) rocks" crowd. I posted this a couple of pages back, but the Swedes seem to be on top of their game when it comes to producing the sweet sounds of yesteryear:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fELhPgQgDVY

Saw them live at a lovely pub (99% of customers were shitfaced middle-aged people looking for a random shag), but they rocked out great anyway!

Wolf People is another favorite of mine:

Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats was probably mentioned already on last page, but they deserve to be brought up again:

sHeavy sounds awesome, got to check them out! Although I got to say I wish there was at least a tiny bit more innovation in the stoner subgenres in general since carbon copying the exact same pentatonic riffs, big muff tones etc. gets really boring when you can't really even tell between the bands.

I know what you mean, especially from Big Black on. I like Frequencies and Time Travelling Blues because there's a little psychedelic streak in them that they really lost later where they moved away from being a "stoner rock" band to just straight up heavy metal with nothing to make them stand out. Ward's voice can be really grating as well because it's totally flat and a lot of the time it sounds like he's making GBS threads himself.

The new album is a little bit fresher, but it's all sort of background music rather than something you actually listen to or get involved with.
