Sleep - Holy Mountain (1992)

Sleep are a band of somewhat cult status now, and it's mostly thanks to this monstrously heavy riff onslaught, and of course their 60+ minute journey 'Dopesmoker'.  Both are great albums and symbolise the beginning of much of the great stoner and doom we listen to today.

Old Man Gloom - Christmas (2004)

Sludge/doom metal/post-metal from Massachusetts.  Formed by Aaron Turner of ISIS and various members of Zozobra and Converge the band fucking rocks, simple as that.  Full of great ambient parts that lead straight into brutal sludge making it one of my current favourite albums.

Song Picks:

Bossk -.1 (2006)

I would suggest Bossk are Britain's answer to ISIS. Awesome music from Ashford, UK. Took a few listens but was well worth it, great guitar work and the songs open out into epic stories.  .1 is the first of the Bossk trilogy before they disbanded in 2008.  Great music and great album cover

Agalloch - Ashes Against The Grain (2006) & The Mantle (2002)

Atmospheric blackened doom with amazing post-whatever touches from Portland, Oregon, USA.  Really great albums, start with The Mantle which has a more folk metal/post rock feel to it, then move onto Ashes Against The Grain for the full Agalloch experience. Enjoy

Cult of Luna - Salvation (2004)

Post-metal/sludge band from Umea Sweden. Think Neurosis meets Isis.  Great album with some fantastic ambient passages and has quickly turned into one of my favourite albums of all time. 

Songs picks: 
Waiting For You
Leave Me Here
Vague Illusions

ISIS Panotican & Oceanic

I have been a fan of Isis for quite a long time now and the more I listen the better it seems to get.  Post-metal/ Sludge and amazing ambient landscapes from Boston, Massachusetts.  These two are albums that will grow on you with time and definitely worth a listen.



Dopefight - Buds (2010)

Absolutely awesome stoner metal from Brighton UK. Sludge Stoner Goats Noise need I say anymore...
These guys fucking rock.

Hello! and Baroness

I've set up this blog with the aim of showing and sharing rock music which is well worth a listen. I will post fairly regularly (hopefully) different types of awesome music for your delectation. Enjoy!

I thought we'd start of with an all time favorite of mine Baroness - Red Album, great album, takes some time to get into but is altogether brilliant :-


Peace off.
