Any recommendations for occultish doom bands that rely heavily on organs, choir chants and such? Clean vocals are a must. While I know Ghost is maybe leaning more towards ABBA than Black Sabbath, I'd love to find bands in the same vein.

Bloody Hammers put on a really fun live show and have an organ-heavy, retro-tinged sound (and they're friendly with Ghost). "Fear No Evil" and "Witching Hour" are pretty organ-y.

Blood Ceremony might be up your alley. Less organs, more flute solos.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm already aware of Uncle Acid's magnificently hazy horror movie grooves, and I found Bloody Hammers to be an OK listen too. Blood Ceremony's vocalist grates on my nerves for some reason so I guess I'll have to skip them. While browsing the aforementioned bands on Youtube, I came across Year of the Goat, who seem to offer nice 60s and 70s tinted occult rock la Graveyard, Horisont and Witchcraft.

Devil's Blood is the poo poo, but sadly they broke up earlier this year.

In other possibly sad news, rumors are going around Facebook sourced back to Invisible Oranges that eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze has passed away. No major confirmations yet though, so it could just be a bad source.

weapon finesse: my dong

Do you want to listen to somewhat blackened sludge, comparable to early Isis, Intronaut, and Swarm of the Lotus, with lyrics entirely about ancient subterranean slugs taking over the planet? Slugdge is the band for you. Despite the somewhat weird theme and the occasionally questionable clean vocals I have been enjoying this a lot. Loving the production, especially that bestial double kick.

it just sounds kinda boring. i was really underwhelmed by their live show too. its a shame cause kyuss was my number one band growing up. when you look at what queens have done and then hear this vista chino stuff its almost laughable.

e: have any of the last few brant solo records been any good? the last one i heard was the double disc one after local angel and it really pissed me off. re-writing the same songs over and over. brant definitely lost it on that one. did he pull it back on later albums?

Melvins in Vancouver last night was pretty great, as expected. At least until some asshat threw something and hit Buzz and they told us to gently caress off and walked out. Alas, I'm just glad they got through Roman Dog Bird before poo poo hit the fan.

What the hell, someone threw something at Buzz? That's hosed up. I wonder if that's why security was being overly-dickish at the Pappy & Harriet's gig. People started slamming into each other during the last part of the Melvins set so I pushed my way up front only to be grabbed by security and kicked out of the venue for "slam dancing." I would've been pissed, but I had a great time up until that point (The food at that place is incredible, and the Melvins played Night Goat!) and could only laugh when I realized what was actually happening.

Somera Sol and Punk Rock Guilt are a lot better than Saved By Magic, which is probably my least favorite Brant album.

Vista Chino is a complete disappointment. Their songs are uninspired, and the production on the album is awful. If John Garcia is as full of himself in person as he is in that interview, I can see why Josh wants nothing to do with him.

Blood of the Black Owl. Big ambient influence, lots of chanting and poo poo. Not exactly clean vocals, but definitely not black/death metal growls either. A Banishing Ritual is one of my fav albums of all time.

Black Widow. Old school band that actually predates Black Sabbath, they were probably an even bigger influence on the early scene but have been kinda forgotten by now.

Coven, Black Widow, et al
Its great when you get far enough back in metal to run into psychedelic/garage rock. Its what makes me love music and both genres so much.

On Kyuss/Vista Chino...I really, really wanted this to be good. I really wanted Garcia to create an amazing album - not necessarily an album as successful as Homme's efforts, but a least an album that was on par.

Punk Rock Guilt and Gods & Goddesses aren't bad. G&G is the better of the two, he kinda takes a turn in his sound from laid-back desert rock to much more direct and riff-driven stoner rock. I think it works out for him. No one else out there really sounds like him.

As far as Vista Chino goes, I'm gonna have to disagree with peeps here and say I enjoyed it. Looking at it as a new Kyuss album is pointless, because nothing they could release could live up to that. At this point, it's just a John Garcia project with Brant Bjork on it, and it's pretty drat good for being that. The second half of the album is great. Not one of my favorite albums of 2013, but it's not terrible. Plus I was super excited to see that Brant gets vocals on one track.

Brant seems to get a lot of influence on this record in general, something he never got much of in Kyuss. Adara is one of the best tracks, and that is just pure Brant.

I think the problem was they tried too hard to sound like Kyuss instead of something separate from that. Adara was my favorite track too because it's the one song with a distinct identity apart from "half of this band was in Kyuss".

Unida's just as good as the only two QOTSA albums worth bothering with. If Man's Ruin wasn't run like dogshit and American basically ignoring them they'd probably have gotten big when the whole stoner rock thing blew up.

I'm not sure if they're easier to find now, but even just being able to find them on YouTube period is a recent thing. When the album first came out I had to get a second hand copy of a second hand copy from a friend because they only had a limited vinyl release that you had to buy straight from them or something crazy like that originally.

Find a place with big printers and make a poster.
If you're desperate you can probably get a banner made, but those tend to be really expensive since they're usually a commercial service.

E: I just did some quick research since I've been wanting something similar with a different image and it looks like $45 is about as cheap as I can get it for how big I want it.
