Weed Priest - S/T - CDEP 2011

With some bands the clue is just in the name. Whether you have ever inhaled or not it should be fairly clear what the Galway/Ennis band are all about. Describing themselves as Occult Stoner Doom this doesn’t quite cover the mixture of sludgy down…

Weedeater ‘Goliathon’ CD/LP/DD 2015

2nd June 2015 at 4:36 pm

Weedeater

Whalerider

Whalerider is, first off, a BRILLIANT name for a band. How did no one come up with this one before? These Germans have mixed us up an album oozing with 70s psychedelica, stoner rock and some dashes of doom to bring us Thanatos. First…
