I was honestly never all that into stoner metal. Of course, the classic bands like Sleep, Kyuss, Electric Wizard and the like are always fun, but for the most part upon getting more into the genre I found it to be flooded with too many drony, monotonous bands for my liking. So the question I then asked myself was: "How do bands with such simplistic, transparent song structures manage to keep their audience hooked?" Well, about a month ago, I found my answer with Horn Of The Rhino after a friend recommended Weight Of Coronation to me. I was hesitant at first, knowing what genre it was, but I finally decided to give it a go. The first listen didn't impress me, so I gave it another go, which didn't do anything either. But on my third listen, everything clicked, and it all fell into place. This little Spanish trio have certainly made a (small) name for themselves in recent years, and piqued my interest in doing so, by managing to make the most out of their uncomplicated songwriting. And I don't mean that in any bad way whatsoever.

This is the first time I've heard this band, always just assumed they were another average sludge band, holy shit was I wrong. Those vocals are just too much to handle, such a good band. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of their stuff on repeat the next few days

Which is why, although quite good, the follow up to this isn't as compelling. I dunno if it's the same vocalist but the impact of them is far less.

those vocals on "Sovereign"... The vocalist certainly makes up for the lack of creativity in the instrumental department.

This needs even more attention

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
