[News] Weedian release the new compilation “Trip To Australia” on December 3, 2021

The Australian Stoner/Psych Doom scene has been battering the cosmos from down under with a series of recent releases with enough intensity to shift the Earth’s crust. Heavy, fuzz laden riffs, space age Psych jams, stoner Doom and Desert Rock hymns rising from the crimson Australian sands, sludge from the pits of the primordial bedrock that shape the country provide enough listening material for aeons to come.

What started in the early 1990s through the likes of bands such as Cryptal Darkness and Pod People (to name a few) has now morphed into a fully-fledged assault lead by world class bands covering every inch of the Doom/Stoner/Psych/Sludge spectrum.

Interdimensional Tone Benders such as Comacozer, Pseudo Mind Hive and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have been enveloping the world with their celestial Psych jams. Sludge lords Religious Observance, Whitehorse and Horse Hunter have been moving mountains and widening chasms across the globe with their torrents of noise. Stoner Doom spellcasters Potion, Droid, Lucifungus, Mountain Wizard Death Cult and Yanomamo continue to summon the void with a string of hard-hitting releases while Doom Priestesses Dawn ensorcell the masses with their hypnotic sermon. From beyond the crimson vast lands and sand dunes, Heavy Doom and Desert Rock aficionados such as Witchskull, Tumbleweed, Planet of the 8s, High as Hell and Smoke Witch continue to conjure a maelstrom of riffs. Some bands such as drugged out outlaws Jack Harlon & the Dead Crows and the vile Death Doom outfit Carcinoid blur the lines between genres, with Jack Harlon combining the best of Psych Rock and Doom Metal while Carcinoid intricately narrates a tale of destruction by blending death metal and sludge.

Then there are those that are truly unique such as Dr.Colossus, who merge the best of what The Simpsons has to offer with the most intense riffs that will shake you to within an inch of existence. New prospects such as Isua, Kvll & Goat Shaman are a force to be reckoned with and those to check out for an additional bludgeoning of chaos.

This is just a glimpse of what Australia has to offer. The list of amazing bands producing exceptional local music is endless, and I urge you to discover it for yourself. Weedian’s trip Down under provides an exquisite offering of heaviness and a good starting place for you to get sucked into the vortex of everything heavy in Australia.
