Fuzz Stoner Rock

So the other day Youtube generated a stoner rock album by a band from Italy called Black Elephant. The album cover art looked awesome so I gave it a listen. This album blew me away. Heavy psychedelic rock. If you are a fan of Deep Purple then you will like this band.



So after listening to this album 10 times I dove deeper into the stoner rock rabbit hole on Youtube. Next Youtube generated a album by Killer Boogie called "Acid Cream." The pyschedelic fuzz sound caught my attention and I was all ears. This band is also from Italy from my understanding.

 

One thing I noticed about all these stoner rock albums is none of them had photos of the bands for the album cover. It was all super spaced out psychedelic art. As I dove deeper into into the stoner rock hole I then discovered Mudfinger (from Germany) and their album called "Psychonaut."



In the midst of all the foreign heavy rock, a band from America pops up on the Youtube from Buffalo NY called Spacelord and their album called "Indecipher." Space, heavy rock and psychedelic. What more can I say about these guys but that they rock. Heavily.



Next on the stoner rock playlist I have Stone Age Mammoth. Uh hell yeah stoner rock, stone age, dinosaurs, wooly mammoth! This band is from Greece and their album is called "Riff Desert" and let me tell you this is some heavy riffing right here!



If you want more of a heavy mellow jam Iah-Iah's self titled debut album is for you. This band is from Argentina.



Another chill stoner rock album is "Tri" from My Sleeping Karma. This album attracted me because of my Taoist beliefs. So you know I gave this one a listen. This band I believe is from Germany.



Here I have a intrumental stoner rock album by Mr. Bad Luck  called "Tale of the mountain man." As I listened to more stoner and fuzz rock I discovered I like the instrumentals better then the songs with vocals. I feel like in the instrumentals the instruments do the singing. So its a interpretative communication of the lyrics, very cool. This band is from Denmark.



So if I had to pick between stoner rock and fuzz rock I think I would pick fuzz rock. I just like the fuzz sound. Soothes me for some reason. Fuzz is a thick distortion that almost has a buzz sound to it and tweaked right it puts forth a strong electric sound that puts chills up your spine. It wasn't until I started building cigar box guitars that I dove deeper into sounds and tones. If you are a musician it is so important to find your tone and sound that resonates with your soul because that is you. For years I just played music and did not know what guitar to use or amps. When I built my first cigar box guitar it hit me like a ton of bricks that this is my fucking sound. Deep and heavy. It is what I like and have been searching for. So which out further hesitation I introduce you to the next Fuzz rock band Fuzzcrafter. Almost reminds me of Kraft Macaroni and cheese but for the ears! This band is from France and this is their self titled album that rocks!




So to end this stoner rock fuzz post on my blog I leave you with a band called Kalamata from Germany and their album called "Disrutpion." Super cool.



Rock on, don't let the man or woman get you down.
