Stoner Rock Ohio Blowin' Smoke CD Compilation

Blowin' Smoke is the new compilation featuring some of O(high)o's finest bands.

So if you want to hear what all the hype is about, head on over to StonerRockOhio.com and pick up your copy now!





















Contributing bands:

Red Sun -"bottom-heavy, psychedelically enticing metal/rock which somehow manages to simultaneously embody the steady-bulldozer attitude of doom and the impassioned urgency of the best hardcore punk."-Zachary V. Sunderman, Bastion Recordings."

MySpace


Smoke Theory- "Never putting aside the influence of AC/DC, ZZ Top, Ramones, Led Zeppelin, Slayer, Black Sabbath or for that matter any surfy, greasy or garagey early Rock'n'Roll the Smoke rolls on. In a world of fake Rock'n'Rollers who stress image over riffage Smoke Theory take a stand as a band who doesn't rely on fruity hairdo's, women's clothing and tons of shit pierced to their faces to make a statement. The music speaks for itself.

Spider Scorpion-"Metal/Bossa Nova/Punk"

MySpace


Threefold Law- "Rising from the ashes of the Burning River, Threefold Law's signature riffs and dark grooves took hold in late 2006. They honor the pioneers of doom, such as Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Trouble, Pentagram, Cathedral, and Down while spinning a unique tale of darkness and despair. Threefold Law released their first EP recording in April of 2009, titled “Killer of the Sultan.” The band secured a spot on the first Stoner Rock Ohio Showcase in 2008 as well as the second one in June of 2009. Threefold Law continues to play the northeast Ohio region with fan support ranging from Akron to Australia."

MySpace


Venomin James- "Based out of Kultland's Crowe Valley, the home of murder, mormon and mayhem. Our sound is a straight up mix of rock, doom, metal and occult esotera."
 
MySpace


Blacklight Betty- "Blacklight Betty is a three piece rock band based in Cleveland, OH.

The group features guitarist/vocalist Camille Champa, drummer/vocalist Adam Phillips and bassist/vocalist Larry Kalal.

If you keep a regular supply of Nag Champa, own a turntable or have some form of shag carpet in your home, then we want to be your band. Energy. Volume. The Riff. Rock and Roll is not dead, it has just gone underground. We can't think of a more perfect place for a blacklight."

MySpace

Jupiter Sideburns- "A heavy rock band from Dayton Ohio, who escaped the alien attacks, decides that the weight of the world is on their shoulders. They find one of the aliens' ships that was disabled and left behind after the fighting was over. They repair it and restart the ships internal memory. What they find has only been seen by god since the beginning of time. The data base is massive. It includes everything about the Black Orb Aliens' civilization from their history to their episodes of Evil. And one very important piece of information. Their next destination: Jupiter. The band plots a course to the other side of the galaxy. They gather their instruments, belongings and kiss their loved ones goodbye possibly for the last time. They forget one important item. Shaving cream. This is the story of Jupiter Sideburns"

MySpace

Lo Pan- "All movement in the universe is caused by tensions between positive and negative furies, and when the furies are out of balance, as they are in LO-PAN who is cursed, then they turn into demon and live forever. Repulsive and evil existing only to plague the living. A creature of fast dark destructive power. "IT'S ALL IN THE REFLEXES!"

MySpace


Masters of Luxury- "If you have not yet heard these guys, then there is no more perfect time than now. Masters Of Luxury are from the Columbus/Dayton Ohio area and combine elements of progressive, doom, and stoner metal to provide the listener with a very satisfying listening experience. Citing influences such as Tool, Black Sabbath, Dillinger Escape Plan and Sleep, all can be heard on their newly released EP entitled "Robot Love Songs" as well as their previous release "Welcome To Opulence". Check them out if you are a fan of any of the aforementioned bands.

MySpace


Mechanics of Things- "Mechanics of Things" was born from an inspiration of singer, Paul Conaway, evolving from hobby to live band in the summer of 2007. In the winter of 2009, Mechanics of Things began recording a full-length CD at Cleveland's Ante Up Studio under producers Mark Baker and Pete Schmuel of Sonar 73 Productions. In January 2010, Mechanics of Things fortified their powerful dimension, adding ML, former drummer of NUCLEON, to their already trebuchet sound. Currently, Mechanics of Things is looking forward to their first CD release, slated for summer 2010. The CD reflects the progress of the band including tracks such as "Gasoline" and "Halo" and a number of new compositions meshed with an iron slab, full of rawkmusic tilt. The band seamlessly blends a mix of metal, hard rock and old school punk. (If White Zombie, Kyuss and Black Sabbath joined together and gave birth, Mechanics of Things would be The Bastard Child..)"
