Awesome album. Most of the songs have a good, hard drive and wouldn't be quite as heavy or indeed effective without that solid rhythm section. Admittedly this is the first release I've listened to the band, so I assume the previous two albums are just as good. That said, 'Doen', 'No hope', 'Dawn rising' and '1516' are all absolute belters.

A stoner rock album getting only a 3 from greg? What's happening here?

Probably because it's more stoner metal than stoner rock and while you'd think "what's the big difference?", Greg can feel it ain't quite the same.

Ha. I think it has more of a stoner pop vibe actually.

It's also that I generally see Greg handing out more generous ratings. But yes, there is a difference.

Nice review Greg, I haven't giving MTM its due diligence cause it just made me wish I was listening to Mastodon. I may give it another chance after this review before I check this one out.

Fuckin' love this song but it's only as stoner as "you might enjoy listening to it stoned".
Black Sabbath are obviously a massive influence on stoner but I'd say they're more at the hard-rock-
with-stoner-leanings end of the genre... at the other end there's crazy shit like this:

I really like Murder the Mountains, still haven't checked this one out. Yeah, Stoner Rock was a term coined back in the early 90s, and they was a huge underground scene full of a lot of kickass bands, and it's crazy that over the past few years, there has been a resurgence and appreciation of the genre. Some of my favorite albums of Stoner Rock: Orange Goblin - The Big Black, Solace - Further, Truckfighters - Gravity X, Eternal Elysium - Spiritualized D, Halfway to Gone - Halfway to Gone, Unida...just to name a few besides the obvious ones.. Good review, Greg.

Yeah. Definitely... Halfway To Gone are so underappreciated. I love them. I also really dug Murder the Mountains.

Anyone have recs for an album that sounds like this but is more consistent in quality? Other than Murder the Mountains.
