This band had two lives, they began as a (not so great, frankly) death metal outfit, and then glided their way
into (pretty good) stoner rock.....I have three latter-day albums, from the stoner phase, which I think you will like much better (besides I don't have the older ones)......"Orange" was the first of the stoner type albums, bears a striking resembelance to Kyuss, the vocals especially, and what in the world could be wrong with THAT?
Three albums here, all of them of the hard-stoner-rocking mid 00's stuff that I like so much (I've called such music "future classics" and likened it to the hard/heavy psych of the early 70's, not that that means much of shit).....anyway, the first album here is 1997's "Orange", which, anyway on might slice it, has a definite Kyuss/QOTSA tinge to it.....still hard rocking and great, all the tracks are pretty solid, I take a personal liking to "Daisy's Lunch" and the spacy "Risin' Out of the Loop".....anyway, in 1997 stoner rock was a fairly new concept, and these guys took off with it......this is an overlooked gem of the genre.
Next I have "Chrome" from 1999......perhaps a little harder rocking than its predecessor, still a good effort....again, most of these tracks will find a spot in the heart of any "real" hard rock lover, but damn, "Alooka's Boulevard" and "Staardust" stand out, and this is also a REALLY strong effort.

Some damn good stoner rock for ya, hell, that's what I started this whole thing out with, less-than-well-known stoner rock......anyway, things have changed, so whatever, but I hope you all like this one, like the rst of the shit I put up, and ESPECIALLY that you like the team-submissions, Brian's new Slayer projet is one for the books, let me tell ya!
