Another week in quarantine, another week I struggle to figure out what day it is or any kind of structure thereafter. Hope everyone’s doing okay! I can see some people are starting to get REALLY weird in their homes (pretty sure one of my friends has cracked up permanently). Anyway! This week I have some MORE stoner and doom for you to jam to while we try to figure out when this “End of Days” will actually… end. I’ll be adding on some albums I’ve been blasting on Spotify recently as well! Let’s go!
Not gonna lie, I was high as shit when I started playing this and the intro to the first song scared me a little hahaha! Always a good sign! TUMMANDUUMBAND from West Midlands, UK has released a remastered version of their SATANIC DOOM METAL album recently as was gracious enough to let me download it (Awww, thanks you guys)! This is definitely one for the Witchy Playlist for sure. A lot of instrumentals in this album — dark and brooding riffs mixed in with Satanic speech. Slow, and deliberate; this album bleeds Satanic Doom (perfect for this Full Scorpio Moon coming up on the 7th)!
This shit is dreeeeaaaamy oh my god. I’m on the last song of this amazing album called “I’d Do Anything”… and I’m about to play it again. THE RHUBARB is the STONER/DOOM METAL band I never knew I needed. All the way from Glasgow, Scotland this band knows how to create moods with their vivacious sound (that bass is giving me life). I’m seriously wondering how many water signs are in this band (hahaha!), there’s so much ebb and flow with each track. Really glad you guys took my advice and made a YouTube video of this album cause it look like I missed a couple of songs! Also, I didn’t know that a rhubarb was a vegetable, or that it has so many recipes (hahaha!) — learn something new everyday!
Seriously digging this band right now! WASTELAND COVEN brings out the darkness with soft somber tones — which is not seen too often. But it quickly switches up to an even darker mood with deep heavy bass and guitar riffs. Their album ‘RUINED’ is one I would recommend to those who are huge fans of ACID KING or WINDHAND. The band is all female vocals with a STONER/DOOM METAL sound. Again, this is another album I would put on for a moon/blood ritual. It sets the tone for some heavy, slow-creeping, energy to metal out with.
Here’s some music I’ve been jamming to lately on Spotify!
THIS band you should know already, but if not, here ya go! BELZEBONG is one of the top STONER/DOOM METAL bands out there and my FIRST song from them is on this album which was “Acid Funeral” (that poor girl hahaha). Heavy stoner riffs that groove (love that) on songs that seem to go on for eons (perfect). As soon as you think it’s gotten as slow as it can… just wait. Only a handful of songs on the album, but that’s really all you need. These legends are from a little place called Poland and I hope to see them in person some time!
Just when I thought this album couldn’t sound any better (new aux cord! yusss!) MONOLORD blessed the world with an instrumental version of their first album EMPRESS RISING which was released back in 2014! This badass STONER/DOOM/SLUDGE METAL band is from Gothenburg, Sweden and I would just looooove to see them again! Listening through it, I can hear my favorite parts far more intricately. I swear in my heart I can still hear the words (listening to this album a million times will do that to ya) and I still sing along a little bit. Ohhhh DOOM KARAOKE! I don’t even do Karaoke and I would do it with this. Someone set this up!
Thanks for reading! Don’t forget to SUBMIT YER SHIT! for the next post and stay #MFKNCONNECTED with me on social media!
