Our most recent posts have focused on ultra-low downtuning, and seeing Horseback live.

As I've got a couple of guitars to mess around with, I'd like to tune one of them down way more than I can currently manage. What kind of gauge strings would I need to play, for example, Satan Worshipping Doom (tuned to F, apparently)? I got some slightly thicker than normal strings a while back but it gets way too floppy by the time I get to, say, A#.

Really hope I get to see Horseback someday!

Quantum of Phallus: as you probably still have the raw, would it be OK to edit the header image and add the extra 'P' in there? I know you used the standard US spelling but it's not consistent with the album name on which you have punned :I

How long is the neck of the guitar?

I'm getting an 8 string in the mail tomorrow so I can do standard all while having a B + F# (and potentially lower).

I love Dopefight but I can't help but think their album is really, really repetitive. It would work better as an EP. Maybe i'm not getting high enough.

What bands should I check out if I want more vocals like Orthodox/Neurosis? That extremely punchy and hateful full vocal style wrecks me. Sometimes I need to feel like the vocalist is pissed at me and needs to yell at me.

First of all, loving YES, Noothgrush are incredibly and totally worthy of


Being sober is the best way to appreciate all stoner/sludge/doom/drone records, in my humble ex-pothead opinion. I grew up with weed and that poo poo made me listen to some seriously revolting acts and think they were cool; conversely, once I outgrew my bong several years ago, my judgment improved drastically, and I started really feeling the fringe poo poo I had theretofore regarded as exclusively for passive, stoned listening. Use your ears to hear music. Use your brain to hear music. Don't use your Zig-Zags to hear music.

I realize this is completely contradictory to the entire genre, but it's what made me personally start loving the music as appreciable genius as opposed to just some riffs boring enough to keep my attention while high. Still love the theme, still love the drug (from afar), still love the aesthetic, still worship Satan. Just saying that Dopefight record is loving awesome, and what the poo poo is "too repetitive"?

Weed isn't really a passive drug for me. It enhances things and I notice so much more when i'm listening to music high. I'm such a music nerd that I can't help but completely immerse myself in every album I listen to. Mind + ears + weed is a perfect mix for me.

Anyway I didn't want to sound negative about the Dopefight album, I loving love it. I just think it goes on for a bit longer than necessary. Still an easy 4.5/5 or higher from me.

OP suggestion: Add Warning - Watching From A Distance to the first post. It's the most intense doom albums I've heard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FMr61LyEV0

Thanks for the reminder, I've not listened to them in ages. It is really good.

Meanwhile, I just learned to play the oft-linked Dopefight - Saviour on guitar and while pretty simple, it is really really fun to play. Anybody have any other good songs they've been learning on guitar? I need to stop jamming so much and start building a repertoire, but I'd rather it be stoner/sludge/doom than more popular rock songs.

I've been playing tons of early Electric Wizard since I got my 8 string. Their songs aren't really fun to play as a whole for me but taking a handful of riffs and seeing where you can take them is awesome. They give me tons of ideas.

For some reason I've been avoiding Truckfighters because the name reminded me of Drive By Truckers. When I was around 15 I blind bought a DBT album from Best Buy expecting cool metal for some reason. It was a huge letdown. But Truckfighters? Holy poo poo this is gooooood.

They're a great live band. Huge sound for a power trio, and a really fun, high energy set with lots of crowd interaction. Super nice guys too! They do use a lot of stoner rock cliches, but they're so good at what they do that it doesn't come across as silly at all.

On a similar note, I was really impressed with Red Fang last night. I only really knew of them from that one video with the beer can armor, but their newer material is excellent, and their live show ruled.

Oh, and here's another new Bison track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNZ8IFrqRYw

That's awesome, they do come across as a good bunch of guys so it's nice to know the reality matches. I'm not yet very familiar with their albums but I can sense the energy and I guess humor. Demeanor maybe. I don't know what it is but I dig it.

I'll have to listen to the new Red Fang. I was into them when that video dropped but the newer songs didn't hook me right away.

I'm finally getting into the Melvins. How weird is that? I thought why not since I'm in this big huge doomsludge binge. They, uh, really did help form like 90% of these genres didn't they? So far I've been listening to Houdini and recently Bullhead. Both are ace. I wish someone would've showed me them growing up in the 90s so I didn't have to go hard radio rock -> bad metalcore -> etc to find out about good heavy music.

Then I realize I don't actually enjoy any of that and go back to listening to more reasonably structured stuff and have a good time.

I can't blame Elder guy at all. These genres are so dogmatic. If you organically formed a connection to the scene without wanting to be involved in the very nature of it I have to think it's going to wear on you heavily.

I've been really into this since finding it a few days ago. I love the whole heavy metal/prog but not obnoxious/trad doom combo. Until then I hadn't heard a band besides Pallbearer doing it really well.

Like, poo poo like Conan is awesome. Drop F# riffs that sound like the earth is melting, etc gently caress yeah, but bands like Spirit Adrift make me realize it's all about the mournful melodies and atmospheres. Doesn't have to fit the standard formulas.
