The latest of Doomed And Stoned‘s critically acclaimed series documenting the explosion of doom metal & stoner rock around the world takes us on a journey through the lowlands and highlands of Scotland!
The country’s Gaelic name is Alba (pronounced “Al-eh-ba”) and it’s worth noting the ancient tribe that settled it were called Caledonians — an old word that means “hard” or “tough.” You can hear that age-old rough ‘n tumble spirit reflected in the rock and metal of Scotland, especially, which we aim to explore in Vol. 35 of our compilation set, out Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021 as a free download on Bandcamp.
There’ll be plenty to discover, with nearly 40 bands featured — including the classic rock outfit IRON CLAW, founded in 1969. Joining them are some of the scene’s heaviest hitters:
A Ritual Spirit
Ancient Of Days
Hair of the Dog
Harbinger of Storms
Jackal-Headed Guard Of The Dead
Lords of Bastard
Of Spire & Throne
Pyre of the Earth
Razor Sharp Death Blizzard
Robot Death Monkey
Steve Ingle and The Druids
The Kryss Talmeth Experience
Thine Inner Sanctum
As with past volumes in the series, we hope you’ll find your next favorite band in the process, and learn more about the vibrant nature of the scene at large. Scotland, especially, has a penchant for story telling and epic narratives in its music.
