Let’s hear about Switzerland! Well, to be honest Switzerland is a bit of a weird one…
For a country this tiny it has quiet a vivid and diverse Music scene, and a growing Doom/Stoner scene as well. Bands like Hellhammer and Excruciation set the bar for heavy music high in the early 80’s., and maybe due to its size and as a result the lack of musical bubbles (you had to play with whomever was around), there really wasn’t a lot of „pure“ Doom or Stoner bands to follow for a long time. And still as of today, most of the Heavy riff driven music Switzerland produces isn’t easily being put in schemes. As mentioned, the lack of size necessary to have sole Stoner or Doom bubbles has lead to a trademark of local artists I am willing to condense down into one word: innovative! Bands like „Soldat Hans“ with their gloomy overly long Folky Doom or the hypnotic drum driven P.Noir that rose out of the ashes of the infamous Doom trio „Snarf“ prove that there is a certain out of the box thinking in the approach towards heavy music. One of my personal favourites, the Psych/Doom trio „Echolot“ are worth mentioning here as well, for reinventing themselves again and again with every album. If we shift our lens towards a more traditional or Stoner-Heavy focus there is another whole universe to mention. Bands like Lord of the Grave, No Mute and Sons of Morpheus are out there for a while now. In the latest years (and probably also due to the fact that the Up in Smoke Festival, which started in 2011, is becoming a Mekka for Riff-Worshippers all over central Europe) there has been a new generation of bands like Skull Priest, Great Lady Under Earth, E-L-R, Midnight Deadbeats or the sadly split up Heavy Harvest. Another factor, which sounds hilarious in such a tiny country like Switzerland, is the barriers between the various language districts. The french speaking part has a rather different sound than the rest of the country, a certain cold, post hardcory vibe that is hard to pin down. Now, I could ramble on about this and that for a very long time, but I’d much rather recommend you’ll take the time to go on a trip and experience the Swiss scene on your own!
