YAMA – Seaquake EP (2012) Heavyplanet.net:
“Dutch band Yama’s is from Tilburg holland, home of the Roadburn festival! This demo is full of psych, doom, heavy blues and enourmous riffs… The EP is available for free download on their Bandcamp page. Go get it now!” yama.bandcamp.com artwork by Dutch artist Maarten Donders.
Happy #EARTH Day!! – The BeesMade Honey In The Lion’s Skull (2008) This is the fifth full-length studio album by the Seattle band, Earth. These guys have been around a looooong time and are known for being an instrumental drone metal band… so if you need your music to be fast, or to have vocals, this album is not for you. This is weed smoking hangover music. Earth Band artwork by the amazing Arik Roper.
Sad news, Montreal’s BarnBurner is disbanding. One last tour will be hitting seven Canadian cities May26 -June13! In the bright side, new bands have been formed… Check out Mountain Dust! This band features Kevin from Barn Burner on guitars and vocals, and has members of Endast and other Montreal bands! The grooves are much slower, more melodic than BarnBurner, and definitely a LOT more Stoner Rock!! Check them out at mountaindust.bandcamp.com and add them on Facebook!
Dopethrone – III (2012) Bow down to the mighty DOPETHRONE!! These three dudes from Montreal will blow your fuckin’ mind! Heavy drugged-out uplifting Doom/Sludge metal with evil grooves, growling vocals and some occasional sound clips. For fans of WEEDEATER, ELECTRIC WIZARD, EYEHATEGOD, SLEEP & CATHEDRAL. This is some seriously doomy Canadian Stoner Rock. Add them on facebook and listen at dopethrone.bandcamp.com
