Los Angeles Stoner Doom trio Somnus Throne share the second single taken from their sophomore album “Nemesis Later,” due out June 3, 2022 on Heavy Psych Sounds. Stream “Lacquer Bones” now exclusively on Metal Injection!
About the song: “Lacquer Bones is an anthem of those who have lived in addiction of one kind or another. We kept it low, slow and solemn, with a heavy Acid King and even The Stooges sort of faded vibe. The whole thing should set you up to “fall into the bottle, never leave.” Pop it in. Turn it up. And let it burn.”

“Nemesis Lately” is a continuation of their self-titled debut (Burning World Records, 2020), with much more attention to detail, further exploration of the depths of each niche within the doom realm, and a greater variety of sounds. Less droning, more action. It goes without saying that Somnus Throne is never more than one decapitated bat away from Sabbath worship but above all, “Nemesis Lately” is a true smorgasbord of all things Fuzzy, Doomy, smokey, sleepy, and trippy while managing to grasp the essence of each sound — perfect for anyone ready to doom, space, fuzz, headbang, tune in, turn up, and trip out.

Somnus Throne is a three-piece formed way back in 2016 in a cacophony of underground Heavy music shows, leaking warehouse ceilings, and perpetual sedation of one kind or another. While their members have haunted many a ‘5 dollar-at-the-door, Monday through Friday no rent crash-pad, repurposed crack-house turned venues’ from New Orleans to Portland, they are based in Los Angeles, California. Their self-titled debut album on Burning World Records (of Roadburn Festival fame) in 2020 put them on the stoner world map, and they have much to offer to any listener craving fat Fuzzy riffage and anthemic goodness à la Dead Meadow, Acid King, Electric Wizard, Sleep or Dopelord.
