This is especially awesome because I was too young to catch Kyuss the first time around. This is the closest I'm gonna get. I'm as excited as I was when I applied for Led Zeppelin tickets a few years back, except I can actually see Kyuss (well, 3/4 of them) without raping my bank account or winning a lottery with odds of a million to one.

I think I'd poo poo myself if I had the chance to see both of these bands on the same night. I love them both. I hope they both do UK tours (again!) soon... or come to Japan while I'm out there.

I swear, all the masturbatory, Dragon Force-esque solos in the world don't drive me to play guitar, but listening to some sludgey, down-tuned, face-melting riffs do indeed!

Hearing masturbatory Dragon-force-esque solos makes me more likely to give up - simple, awesome sounding poo poo makes me want to learn how to play the guitar more than anything.

I recently got a chromatic tuner, and last night, I tuned my guitar down to C, and found the tab for Dragonaut. I've never felt so motivated to practice guitar in my life!! I don't think I'll ever tune it back to standard.

Anyone going to this, get ready for an intimate performance because loving NOBODY is going Calgary for any reason ever, not even Sleep. They obviously don't want ticket sales or they'd go to Toronto/Montreal/Vancouver/St. Johns. This is clearly meant to be a small show with a small turnout, and it's going to be loving HEAVY.

Yeah same, I didn't get into them until about 2005 and they started me down the whole stoner road, it was sheer luck that I found out they were touring. I even found a Kyuss t-shirt my girlfriend made me back then which I thought I'd lost forever to wear to the gig.

I also found out I just missed Masters of Reality touring in support of The Cult about a month or so ago. I need to play closer attention.

Yeah, it's a seriously weird choice for a gig. Even though I'm in BC I probably won't end up going unless a lot of my buds are as well.

If any of you are looking for some easy stoner rock songs to learn on guitar, Fu Manchu pretty much have the market cornered on simple Sabbathy riffs. Anything off In Search Of... or The Action is Go is perfect for jamming along to.
I gave Regal Begal a shot on my youtube channel a while back. There's a video on there of me playing "Dragonaut" as well but it's pretty bad.

gently caress me, all these awesome tours and I have to live in the rear end-crack of America that bands avoid (rightly so) like the plague. Le sigh.

Two new (to me) albums I've spun up this morning, worthy of mention:

Weedeater - Jason... the Dragon
Standard awesome Weedeater riffs. The album kinda goes off into different genres on a couple of tracks, but I don't mind. Loves me some Weedeater; album does not disappoint necessarily, just wish there was more to it.

Brotherhood of Sleep - Dark As Light
Instrumental album with four tracks, the shortest of which is over 11.5 minutes. Crushing riffs and amazing tone. I love what they've achieved here. Lots of psychedelic action as well, which will go on for a while, then suddenly you get dragged back down into the depths to be pummeled by titanic sludge. Reminds me of Mammatus awesome The Coast Explodes, only way loving heavier. Highly recommended.

EDIT: After listening through it twice, I'm ready to pronounce the Brotherhood of Sleep album my favorite album so far this year. Holy gently caress it's awesome!

Brotherhood of Sleep sounds promising, I look forward to hearing it. I'm loving the new Weedeater though, but I suppose my expectations were for nothing short of just standard Weedeater riffs and attitude, which is good enough for me.

Seriously? Man, those were two of the first stoner rock albums I ever bought. Actually, my first real intro into the world of stoner rock was when I picked up "Carnival Bizarre" by Cathedral in about 1996... although at the time, I had just gotten heavily into death/black metal, and absolutely hated it at first, but it ended up growing on me like kudzu.

I've been playing the hell out of that bass I bought last weekend (a $300 BC Rich Warlock 4 string), doing mostly scales and finger exercises, but I'd like to start learning some actual songs. Do most stoner rock songs need the bass downtuned like they do on the guitar?

D is a common tuning, 1 step down. And yeah, you gotta downtune if you want it to sound right.

Yeah, unless you're Geezer Butler where every song is one long solo, the bass generally plays the root note of whatever the guitar's doing, so both are usually tuned the same. The only song I can think of that isn't like that is Melvins-Boris where the guitar is tuned to drop A (A3 on the piano) and the bass plays the same riff on the A string tuned standard (also A3).

Thanks! I tried to give these guys an honest go but on two occasions I found it to be a bit guitar noodley which is a shame because they have some awesome music. I might try to give them some more tries because the music is bad rear end, just not the sound I would prefer.

They did a split with Lento a while back, think they might be on the same label but the music is very similar and Eve is an incredible album. Many here swear to Snailking but I've never heard it.

I really like Eve. I had looked up Ufomammut briefly during the old thread and they didn't jump out at me initially. I think I only tried one song though so there you go.

This is all very awesome. I've been into heavy music for a long time, mostly death metal/grind but I had no idea there was this whole doom/stoner/sludge genre you could cast your net into and pull out fantastic stuff. I've known about the genre, I just didn't know there was so much good stuff. I saw Weedeater what must have been at least 12 years ago, I saw Electric Wizard a few years ago. I like a little Kyuss. I love Sleep. Ancestors got me excited about new bands but holy god lord jesus I had know idea that there were bands like Yob, Lento and Ufomammut. So the reason I typed all that self indulgent stuff was to demonstrate how awesome this thread is, I thought I knew, but I didn't. I'm getting better now. This is the music I've been looking (not that hard) for. Thanks Satan Worshiping Goons!

Old Man Gloom

There has been no mention of Old Man Gloom. I don't know why I bring them up since they're not doing anything these days, but I love this loving band.

It's really a side project for the principle members, which hail from more well-known bands:

Caleb Scofield (Cave In/Zozobra)
Aaron Turner (Isis)
Nate Newton (Converge)
Santos Montano (Zozobra)

But honestly... OMG is so much weirder and cooler than all of those bands. If you're familiar with Hydra Head's backcatalog you've probably heard of these guys, and you probably know what they sound like. Think albums full of 1-2 minute loud songs and 3-5 minute improvisational/avant garde songs, and one album that's just a 27 minute song (which is also their best album).
