Priestess (stoner rock, check out the album Hello Master, GREAT album. I have seen these live too)
Their second album Prior to the Fire is much better. It's actually metal as well; to be honest, I've never been a fan of Hello Master. Too many weak moments. I'll add Fireball Ministry to the thread, specifically Their Rock is Not Our Rock.

Re: What's the differnce? Doom is Metal where as Stoner is largely 70's rock and/or heavily fuzzed out modern rock. Doom is far more versatile as there are many styles of it where as Stoner more often than not is nostalgia and nothing more. Bands to check out: Traditional Doom Metal: Candlemass Type O Negative Cathedral Solitude Aeturnus Stoner: Fu Manchu Queens of the Stone Age Spiritual Beggars Bottom

Re: What's the differnce?

sludge and stoner seem to be very similar things, but most sludge acts are also considered hardcore punk or similar, where stoner is more rock at times. of course there are exceptions :P
Not so much. Sludge is heavier and intentionally obnoxious where as stoner is more or less 70's rock. While it's true that some Sludge bands have hardcore roots/leanings the vast majority of Sludge acts are Metal.

Re: What's the differnce? I think this is more a grey area. There is a lot of stoner bands that have a lot of doom elements and a lot of doom bands that have stoner elements. Stoner I think is just more "groovy" and blues oriented whereas doom is more based on being heavy.

Re: What's the differnce? they shouldn't be used interchangeably, doom and stoner are two totally different things, I'm not really a fan of stoner bands with the exception of Down, but I've taken a real liking to doom, it's cool to see bands focusing more on heaviness then outright speed, those slow, heavy riffs are a nice change up from the other stuff in my collection

Re: What's the differnce? Stoner is just an adjective, there are stoner metal bands and stoner rocks bands. NTNR is right about it usually denoting a more rock tinged or fuzzed out/"stoned" sound, in addition to some possible psychedelic influences, but this doesn't mean that bands like Electric Wizard, Church of Misery, and Cough aren't metal, although I agree with the bands that he listed that fall farther to the rock side of the spectrum, like Fu Manchu. Here are some examples: Standard doom metal: EApXhO0Tx-8 Stoner doom metal: zj9IAvv32wE Stoner rock: aLdOlzIRCdk

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
