If you spend some time digging through interviews and profiles of YOB, you'll find the consensus on the long-running heavy-as-full-stacks army of Oregon's Mike Scheidt is that his band fits partially into nearly half a dozen interconnected subgenres: psychedelic rock, stoner rock, stoner metal, blues metal, and, most consistently, doom metal. From associated instruments to target demographics, several factors unite those niches, not least of which is the propensity to indulge a sound, solo, or song for minutes on end. As it is with High on Fire, so it is with Hawkwind, and as it is with Earth, so it is with Eyehategod: When a band latches onto something it loves, be prepared to go the distance.
NORSKA play Down-Tuned Doom/Sludge Metal at its most raw and brutal. If your fans of YOB, High On Fire, Weedeater, Ramessess and Electric Wizard then you will dig them.
Cormorant is what a 21st century metal band should be like. If you dig progressive, extreme metal and that sort of American west coast sound then be there early.
From the ashes of PHX stoner metal icons Black Hell and mind numbingly oppressively heavy Graves At Sea comes a breath of fresh air that could only be born of the Valley. Straddling the razor sharp edge of metal but with a twist of South West Americana and bleak Desert Blues comes Dead Canyon. You can thank me later for introducing me to your new favorite local band...
