Stoner HiVe’s Quick Fire Friday
Another Friday another round of hot steaming lava... Why yes! Cause the Stoner HiVe Quick Fire Friday segment is a weekly feature of a handful of bands and only a small amount of words to help spread their musical prowess and our melodic belief…
Baba Naga – Baba Naga
First up: the psychedelic three-piece Baba Naga. They have not only produced a hell of a two track EP filled with trippy stoner and languid mind altering music. They have also managed to turn on the exotic and welcome Eastern influences; turning their music into something hot and transcendental. Give them a head wobble!
Pineal – Smiling Cult
Pineal, a London based three-piece that produces low sounding fuzzed out progressive metal with influences from stoner, grunge and nineties alternative. Which turns out to be a weird mixture between Tool, Melvins, Alice In Chains and perhaps Pelican or ISIS. Smile and get wicked!
Machine – Dark Birds
No, Dutch band The Machine did nog forget the THE in front of their name. This is the Danish band without the THE in front of their name. Machine makes dark alternative rock with loads of grunge and stoner influences. Where dark is meant for their symbolisms and contrasts and not so much the music. Which moves very distinctly to something highly American and easy comestible…
Quake – The Divide
The young American metalcore formation Quake will soon release their first album Insurrection. Their first single The Divide will surely feature proudly on this record. Be ready though; cause The Divide will split your head in two!
