You should stick Lento in the recommended section of the OP.

Oh man this is the first I've heard of Lento. I'm really excited about them. Earlier today I was thinking about asking this thread if someone could point me to a doomy crushing band that does some weird time/pattern stuff. For lack of a better comparison: kind of like a doom/stoner/psychedelic Meshuggah. I really like that it's instrumental.

are there any more bands that are kind of like that?

I'm in Lento love

Not very psychedelic or dark, but some people were going absolutely nuts over these guys five or six years ago in NMD, and they certainly don't stick to 4/4. Progressive stoner metal band (also instrumental) Zebulon Pike.

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.

Quantum of Phallus posted:

You will more than likely love Ufomammut's Eve.
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!

I wish I had enough money to trade my stupid (bad investment!!!!) bass guitar in for a real man's electric guitar. That is loving awesome.

Also, doom metal is loving awesome. I've listened to so much YOB and Bongripper that my head is crushed into a stoned pulp and I haven't even heard them high.

The bass has its place. I would encourage you to keep it and and keep at it at least for a bit. If you seriously start playing guitar or music in general you will be glad that you spent time with the bass. I play guitar and have had basses available but I've been itching to purchase a decent one for a long time and really spend some playing one. What I'm saying is that I'm envious of your position.

Also thanks for pointing out Bongripper everyone! How long until I become a jaded fan of the genre and think that nothing exciting is happening? Because it's awesome as gently caress right now.

I'm the exception actually. I live in Asheville but I'm on vacation at Emerald Isle so I'm driving up from the beach to Raleigh. It kind of worked out better for me as I don't think the YOB TBA show in Charlotte ever materialized which I would have missed because of the beach trip. I'm so stoked this worked out.

I gave them a spin a few days ago. Only listened to a couple songs. I really dug the sound but came away feeling the two songs I listened to were a bit similar. I love the sound though. I'll have to make it all the way through and see how I feel.

Also for more content, the new Kamni folks have been speaking about is excellent. I liked the first album but I was still up in the air about them them. A.T.O.M. seals the deal for me. They are doing good stuff.

Great pics! It's funny I couldn't make out the guitar inlay design and I was standing literally right in front of him. Anyone know what's up with his guitar, is it a custom? If you know about how he tunes that would great to here about to.

Nice meeting you Ian in my awkward hello from the internet way!

Somehow I had picked up that they were traveling with the new album. So I snatched that up while Dark Castle was still playing. They had a pretty cool shirt with them that I hadn't seen before with a dude that appears to be self flagellating.



edit: excellent show by the way even though the vocals were hardly audible down front. I have no idea now the mix turned out through the PA. That was the most excited I had been about a show in a long long time.

Standard A, I believe. Even though he's using baritone strings, you can hear them "flop" quite a bit on their older stuff when he was still using a Les Paul.


What's different about the setup he plays now that minimizes the flop? Higher action? It seems like you would have to have more tension but I don't understand how that works without changing the pitch.

The Gasmask posted:

E: anyone who has the new album (non-leak cd version): does it have no high end like the Prepare The Ground 'exclusive'? I assumed that was some sort of anti-piracy measure, but I want to know for sure. I like the song itself, but the recording sounds terrible, and knowing YOBs previous releases I'd hope it's not the final version.

I've only been able to listen to it once and that was the day after my ears got the YOB live treatment but it does seem that the guitar sound has a lot less high end than most of their other albums. It almost has the "Elaborations of Carbon" sound. I don't think it sounds bad, just a touch different than the most of the others. I'll be able to make a better comparison when I get back home next week.

Those amps did look like Marshalls, I assumed they were and I thought I even saw the Marshall logo. He had them sitting to the right of his stack on the floor.

Thanks for the guitar tech answers. The lengthening of the scale deal makes sense and thinking back it's quite obvious those Monson guitars at the show were really long comparatively.

As for the YOB's new album sound, what struck me is that the guitar tone I heard live is pretty much what is on the Album, very thick and mid-rangey.

I have listened to Uncle Acid but I have not found it interesting.
Then again, along with Ghost, Devils Blood, Jex Thoth and who-ever else - the throw back themes of the music scream desperation any poor imitation. An interesting sound but ultimately no song writing ability.

I think you are better off listening to bands who have done it properly in the time before it became a throw-back genre, as small amount as there may be.

It's kind of funny as Ghost and Devil's Blood do nothing for me but Uncle Acid seems to do what they do perfectly. Lots of times vocals really turn me off but I really dig Uncle Acid's sound. It's kind of like Bon Scott from AC/DC trying to sing like Ozzy with a good bit of effects. I spent some time last night figuring out some of the songs. I haven't been motivated to do that in a while. I think it's some pretty decent music, of course it's pretty much verse/chorus/verse stuff but it I like it. So far all the songs from Blood Lust that I have come across work for me except maybe one which I think was "I'm coming to kill you" or something like that.

Dyna Soar posted:

Leaf Hound, Sir Lord Baltimore, Blue Oyster Cult, Nazareth, Pussy, Lucifers Friend, May Blitz etc.

Of course these modern bands have been influenced by other stuff as well but there's a shitload of heavy psych from the 70s that's worth checking out.

There's a blog called The Day After The Sabbath that posts comps of this stuff, I've found a lot of obscure poo poo from there.

Thanks for the explanation and suggestions. I'm familiar with BOC and Nazareth of course but had never heard the others. They are great bands, I had actually heard the Lucifer's Friend "Riding the Sky" from a skate video I think. The others were new to me. I'm familiar with Epitaph and Iron Claw and they seem draw from the same style/era.

Still, I am having a hard time comparing Uncle Acid to the older stuff. There is certainly a lot in common but over all I find the music to be a lot heavier and more doomy than the bands listed above. Maybe that's an obvious point, I just found it odd that they were dismissed so easily as I feel like I usually gravitate to pretty solid stuff critically speaking and Uncle Acid really grabbed my attention. I don't disagree that they are biting a throw back style and maybe the 70's horror vibe is a bit much but aren't half the bands listed in this thread working within some type similar frame work? It seems odd to single them out.

Basically I'm just feeling weird that someone said new band I'm really digging at the moment sucks and I'm having a hard time understanding why.

Thanks to all for breaking things down for me.


Oh wow! Thanks! I'm really surprised that they didn't have more commercial success. They could have been huge.

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!

Snail - Mental Models: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6QVDOR4XWI

The really heavy sound with the laid back clean vocals turns out really nice. Almost like if Kurt Cobain had a doom band and didn't scream as much.

I Also ran across Viaje A 800 a Mexican stoner/pysch band. It's refreshing to hear a different take on the genre with mostly Spanish vocals and some definite flair in the music.

Thanks for the Elder reccomendations. I really like the Dead Roots Stirring album. Until last night I was up in the air about it being too noodely. That album has a lot of really interesting parts and still flows well.

I really like the new Ahab. If I hadn't known it was them I'm not sure that I would have been able to guess that it was them, if that makes sense. Some people have mentioned that the guitars could be louder but I don't have a problem with the mix. Everything sounds pretty good to me. It's a solid album and I hope they keep them coming. I dig the harmonizing vocals on 'Antarctica The Polymorphess' which seems like some new territory for them.

I've never been able to get into Neurosis. I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I've gone through several albums but nothing calls me back. I may try again. I think I'm just not into Scott Kelly's vocals.

And while I'm on the topic of not getting it. Baroness: I don't get them either but I do think I actually like the new stuff much better than their Red/Blue stuff which is weird because I can usually get into weird time signatures and awkward riffs. The most honest way I can summarize why I don't like Red/Blue Albums is that they just play the guitars too much, too much changing, too much 16th beat picking of a note when a single sounding of the note would do etc.

If you weren't aware, 40 Watt Sun is Pat Walker's (Warning Vocals) new project, and it sounds pretty much exactly like Warning. The Inside Room is a very good album.

Warning are a pretty unique band IMO, but these bands are similarish I guess:
Pallbearer
Ahab's new stuff

Those 2 are the closest I can think of personally although you might find some more that you like in the Last.fm similar artists page This is done on genre tags so recommendations should probably be taken with a pinch of salt.

I ran into SubRosa from that 40 Watt Sun youtube link. They're a really raw layered doom band with mostly female vocals and a some electric violin going on. I'm not usually into female metal vocals but this works well for me. Definitely worth checking out.

SubRosa - Beneath the Crown: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzYqGAzunME

Edit: I mean that in the least sexist way it can be taken. It's all about context I suppose. This type of music works well with a nice reverby clean voice. SubRosa really seems to offer something a bit different but still heavy as gently caress. I'm really digging this.

The vocals and phrasing remind me of something familiar that I haven't been able to place yet...maybe a heavier Black Mountain?
