I finally got around to seeing QOTSA last summer when they were supporting the re-release of their debut. Great show.

Try the forum's own Vultures Await which features our friend Cletus on guitar. Pretty good stuff.

Dopethrone, imo, is the heaviest album ever. Every one of their albums is great for fans of Stoner Rock.
Also, in 2000, I ran sound for them at a club and recorded their show. Yes, they were good with it and I sent them a copy. Nice to have my own Electric Wizard Boot!

Oh, I saw Acid Mothers Temple a few years ago, and it was hands-down the loudest show I've ever been to. I had earplugs in, and my ears were still a little messed up the next day. There can't be a guy left in the band who isn't deaf.

Don't get me wrong, I love Pink Floyd, but they weren't prolific enough. And I don't mean prolific for the sake of it I mean prolific with variety, like FZ. I'm way too familiar with their better stuff. I listen more to King Crimson these days because there's more of it and it's less grooved into my brain. For example, I love the Wish You Were Here album, but I know it so well it drives me nuts.

lol
I hear what both of ya are saying. .the irony is alot of the musicians making this music don't even smoke weed. (happen to be friends with a few on the lists)

Also the band Neurosis was a huge influence on Sleep and the roots of the genre.

To define the genre would be difficult since so many bands cross over to other sub genres that metal (and really Black Sabbath) spawned. It usually contains very tuned down guitars and distorted bass, oversized drums and very repetitive guitar riffs. Green amps are common. The important thing would be the contrast that these bands and other bands had at the time were doing. LA Glam was huge..then suddenly Grunge. Stoner rock was not a genre and wasnt called by name for another 10 years. Sleep was the first band I heard (and shared the stage with) tune down and play so slow it sounded like a 45 on 78 (very slow and low). 15 minute songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24pOo5htg9E (this is the recording that got Sleep canned from their label). Kyuss was also groundbreakers. Desert sessions and Fu Manchu and then QOTSA came from members of Kyuss. Black Sabbath Vol 4 has a sound and production quality similar to many of these bands…imo

Sorry folks with my digressions. I know "Stoner Rock" is an identifiable sub genre of heavy metal as Cletus defined. Kinda of a slow-mid tempo, sludgy, bluesy, heavy thang.

When I think of Rock and Stoner I think the Grateful Dead. But I guess that was more of and acid/lsd kind of band.

there are plenty of bands from the late 60s and 1970s that are great 'stoner music', but the modern stoner rock genre started in the early 90s with aforementioned bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Sleep, Monster Magnet and their ilk. definitely more akin to original Black Sabbath than to bands like Floyd or the Dead.

the documentary Such Hawks Such Hounds is a good starting point for the uninitiated.

This 90's thing may be true, but that does not negate the fact that half the draw to listening to Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, Yes, Deep Purple, Led Zepplin, David Bowie, and others suck as Kraftwork and the Tubes etc..in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and beyond..was you got stoned to enhance the listening experiance. All this other stuff is some sort of modernized rehash (which usually means "not as good") of an experiance that had come before.
