19.5. STÖNER + SLOMOSA

If the name Stöner seems a little on the nose, it is.– Singer/guitarist Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Brant Bjork Band) and singer & bassist Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator) were founding members of the stoner rock legend Kyuss and now joined by long time Brant Bjork Band drummer Ryan Gut, they’ve got dibs on the thick dusty swinging grooves.

Stoner’s love for their early inspirations …bands like Blue Oyster Cult, Kiss, Ramones, Blue Cheer, Misfits, Black Flag, The Stooges, MC5 to name a few… result in big, groovy sunbaked riffs that can cruise low and slow but then floor it and run all the red lights. Live, this is a band about the magnetism between the players, the groove, the loose vibe, strait up badass rock and roll.

Stöner are masters of their trade. These guys have been knee-deep in this stuff for 30-odd years and have rock & roll running through their blood and bones. For the third and latest album titled “totally….” Stoner is in its true form….getting together and having fun, Stoners world is a colorful joyride, heavy of rock but not of head.

Classic Hard Rock, heavy blues, Desert Rock & Psych Rock jams. These things come organically to this trio ….and as always Stoner can’t help but express an abundance of Punk Rock rawness and a passion for real rock and roll swagger.

With two records currently available “Live at Mojave” and “Stoners Rule”. The latest release “TOTALLY..…” sees the band realizing the chemistry of these old friends and developing a statement of pure rock and roll fun. “TOTALLY… is Produced, recorded and mixed by Yosef Sanborn & Stöner at Wizard West Studios in Chatsworth CA. Released by Italian label Heavy Psych Sounds Records. Guest appearances include Greg Hetson on guitar (Circle Jerks) and Mario Lalli on guitar. Grab a slice and crank it.

Hailing from the west of Norway, the four-piece Slomosa has been making waves across borders. With their heavy sound the band coined their own genre – Tundra Rock – inspired by the American Desert scenes of the ’90s. Influenced by bands such as Kyuss, Elder and Black Sabbath, their music is both heavy and groovy at the same time, with raw vocals and thunderous guitars.
