Rating: 8 I don't know why but I thought you had already picked it. It's a great album anyway.
Troy Killjoy - 23.08.2014 at 03:51  
  Nah, I was talking about it before adding the profile at one point but that's about it. Hopefully this way more people check it out - I think this band would please a lot of users here.

Rating: 9 Listening to their bandcamp, so far and there are sections of this where it sounds as if the band members transcend into Tibetan monk form, albeit still retaining their musical prowess and the ability to shred a sick lick. Its like a drugged up Eastern cultural mix they got going, certainly not run of the mill, very original and a great compliment for 4:20 no doubt. Good find Troy, from Ukraine? Da fuq?
Troy Killjoy - 23.08.2014 at 04:34  
  Glad you liked it Timmeh, although it's not surprising coming from someone with a title of "Music Listoner".

According to their Facebook page they're located near Kiev, which doesn't really have anything to do with Berber people but I guess somewhere along the lines they took an interest in that part of history.

Makes for great music in any case.

Rating: 9 Haha, indeed. Yeah its a strange case. I'm now convinced the vocalist is a Buddha or something . Don't mean to go all art appreciation on this but I think these meditative, or hypnotic features as you put it provide a strange contrast with the 'doom' elements. One provides a sense of demise the other a sense of bliss? Opposites linked in a holy matrimony through psychedelia. Interesting.

Similarities for sure, only this has less of an abrasive feel and more of a euphoric transcendental kinda thing going for it. Hopefully that doesn't sound too pretentious.

Not at all dude, if anything it makes it sound more appetizing. I'll get on it asap

Rating: 8 Finding the song list on their bandcamp was a journey, but it was worth it.

They're just making sure your scroll wheel is working.

  That cover reminded me of this
I wouldn't be surprised if there was such a photo on the booklet

I like these guys. Do you have any other recommendations for bands that sound similar? Will check out Rintrah when I'm done givng these guys a listen.

Om and Yob are kind of the go-to suggestions for the psychedelic stoner doom style. Ufomammut too.

Bong Breaker and Mammatus both have albums up on Bandcamp that might interest you as well. I could go on for days with this so feel free to ask for more suggestions.

Thanks! It's been a good night of metal. Great staff pick.

The thing I like most about Ethereal Riffian is that have their own thing going on here, rather than being derivative of any of the above mentioned bands.

The only downside to that is recommending similar bands isn't as simple as it could be.

  The cover art kind of looks like it's portraying a homosexual getting an orgasm... but I'll listen to it!
Ilham - 25.08.2014 at 01:55  
Rating: 8 If you want, for the sake of the argument, let's assume it's a guy achieving climax. Now why would he be homosexual?

Must be the colourful background. Man do I ever sound terribly prejudiced right now.

  Listening to Wakan Tanka right now and it's definitely a thick slab of groove. I can turn gay to this.

I also thought the cover looked gay in a way (hay hay!) But looks like many of you like this pretty much so I'll listen to it
