The term "stoner metal" always seemed to strike me as a bit ironic. When you're being a dirty hippie with that stuff that makes you hate America
, one would at least assume you'd want something highly atmospheric and trippy to listen to, not necessarily pummeling, heavy riffage, as has become the technique typical of stoner metal these days. This year, however, Rintrah
are following along the idea of making their stoner brand more psychedelic than usual, and they're executing the formula quite well.
