Grails - Black Tar Prophecies Vol's 1, 2, & 3 (2006)

Some of the best stoner/psychadelic music I've heard for a long time.  Rock, jazz, free-form freakouts, droning soundscapes, plodding dubbed-up and out bass, they are all here giving the record a great '60s and '70s feel . Dark and amazing, absolutely beautiful music.

Alcest - Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (2007)

This is an incredible Shoegaze/Post Rock/Black Metal album from France's, Alcest.  The project is led by a guy called Neige who creates beautiful music which draws influences from many genres.  Fans of Black or Downbeat Metal this is a album you should definitely have a listen to.

Callisto - Noir (2006)

When I first starting listening to Post-Metal and Sludge,it all began with Callisto.  The Finnish Sextet's second album Noir contains influences of progressive, ambient, sludge, jazz and many others and as a result is one of my favourites.  Fans of ISIS etc should dig this shit.

Jack And The Bearded Fisherman - Places To Hide (2011)

I know this has featured on Stonerobixx's Blog recently but I couldnt resist.  A great stoner rock/sludge album from some dudes in France, definately worth a play through.
'Taking into their itinery the neanderthal blues, they will cross through troubled waters and musical fury. They will navigate between melody and impatience, skirting still pools of tension and waves of explosion…'

BoC / Quiet Lakes - Missing Endings (Split) (2011)

Just got sent this one to review a few days ago and I'm really impressed.  The album starts with Breakfast of Champions a Tokyo based band playing metal and rock n roll with some great Layne Staley (Alice in Chains) style vocals, the riffs fucking kick ass.  This then leads into  Quiet Ocean from Ontorio, an awesome display of bleak soundscapes, showing influences of Drone/Post Doom/Post Rock.  Well worth downloading and listening and I wish the two groups all the best. Drone on. 

Song Picks:
Master Blaster
Cracked Lips

Hull - Sole Lord (2009)

Sole Lord is fucking epic. Doom/Stoner/Post-metal from Brooklyn NY

It's a shit video in comparison to the album but should give you a flavour of HULL

Nadja - Touched (2007)

 'The duo combines soundscape, electronics and atmospheric vocals with slow, epic riffs and dirge-like percussion, creating a slowly moving grand wall of music that has been described as drone, ambient-doom, and shoegazer-metal. Aidan noted that they prefer to call their style of music "ambient metal" or "ambient doom", though he's fond of the term "dreamsludge" as well.'

Great duo consisting of Aiden Baker and Leah Buckareff from Toronto, Canada, worth a listen.

Song Pick:
 Stays Demons
Flowers of Flesh
