Electric Wizard

Re: Electric Wizard I really like these guys. I think they are a bit overrated and aren't the greatest thing to happen to doom or stoner metal ever (Church of Misery and Cathedral definitely rank higher for me), but I have 4 of their albums and enjoy listening to them.

Listen to Dopethrone' date=' it's a great album.[/quote'] This album, plus 'Come my fantatics' are awesome. Have to say I am thoroughly confused on the difference between doom/stoner...lol

Stoner metal has more influences for 70's rock and psychedelic music, doom metal is often combined with it in cases like Electric Wizard and Church of Misery. For doom without stoner in the sound, check out bands like Trouble, Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, etc..., for stoner metal that's not that doomy, try Bongzilla, mid period Cathedral, Spiritual Beggars, etc...

I imagine some of you have heard these guys as well, but I thought I'd toss it up here - another really good band from the same scene/time as Electric Wizard: c3KATdqdoLg

Ahh, I love Trouble!! I haven't given stoner metal a try yet. But since I like to partake every now and then, I'll check it out next time I blaze up ;)

Church of Misery is easily my favorite stoner/doom band, they're plenty heavy, but have an awesome sense of swagger and groove, with tons of rock out/jam moments that make them sound like they would have been at home in the 70's. All of their songs are about serial killers too, which adds a fun macabre element to their sound. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

Glad you like it. If you're not familiar with it, be sure to check out Cathedral's second album The Ethereal Mirror. It's my favorite stoner/doom album, but they only really had that sound for that one. It's heavy as shit, but super catchy and rockin' too. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

Re: Electric Wizard Yeah, I live in Salt Lake City, none of those are even close to me. I've made those road trips to CA and AZ for shows before, but I'm already making one next month to Denver for a gig, so I doubt I'll have funds for another trip. EDIT: It looks like they're coming to Australia too Murph, you should check that out, I've heard that they put on a good live show. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

I think there's different kinds of heavy. There's the Forest Of Equilibrium kind of heavy where the sound is so thick it sounds as if the bowels of of the Earth are being channeled directly through your speakers. Then there's the kind of heavy created by an atmosphere so smothering it's almost difficult to breathe. Both approaches offer something different and are equally enjoyable.

For sure. I think we often say the same things in different ways.:D I guess I'm talking about sonic heaviness. My favorite old Katatonia stuff is probably Brave Murder Day and Sounds Of Decay, but as I've said elsewhere I like everything they do. I'm a sucker. But if you really want heavy, listen to Burning Witch's "Towers". Anybody listen to that Iron Monkey song I put up? I really like those guys. Plus the vocalist is dead now, which makes it heavier...
