The first two albums of kick-ass stoner rock from Portland's Red Fang.......Red Fang are singer/guitarist
Bryan Giles, bassist Aaron Beam, guitarist David Sullivan, and drummer John Sherman. The self titled debut was released in 2009, "Murder the Mountains" a couple years later.....they HAVE released a couple of discs since then, but I don't have em (anyone able to help with that?).....
A solid heavy/stoner band, they opened for Kyuss, Orange Goblin, Opeth, In Flames, Mastadon.......always a bridesmaid, I guess, but these two albums can stand on their own, perfectly listenable late "'00's" stoner rock, the kind (I have said this 1000 times) that will be GREATLY appreciated by rock n rollers (REAL ones) in about 20 years or so.....I haven't presented a lot of stoner rock of late, and believe it or not, I have a TON that I have never profiled (Fu Manchu for example, and a few other big timers).....anyway, Red Fang were certainly solid, Mark Eveleigh if you are out there, you will like these, and, just maybe, you have their two "more recent" releases (I have never even HEARD them)......this blog was, at one time, sort of built around the concept of "stoner rock"......we've certainly drifted away from that, but it's still shit that I love, and if this is a "new" band (to YOU), great, sort of a "second line" stoner rock band (like, say, Mermaid, or Abunai, or Acid King, etc)......a slew of great, unknown music came from that scene, and I will go to my grave trying to keep it in circulation.
MURDER THE MOUNTAINS-01 Malvaerde/02 Wire/03 Hank Is Dead/04 Dirt Wizard/05 Throw Up/06 Painted Parade/07 Number Thirteen/08 Into the Eye/09 The Undertow/10 Human herd
I'll emphasize this, these are two really pretty damn good stoner rock albums.....really DAMN good, if you missed em the first time, and you are a lover of the hard rock sounds that I personally prefer, I guarantee that you are gonna enjoy these.
