Heavily distorted guitar riffs litter stoner rock radio – more often than not played at a slow and hard pace, a style made famous by bands such as Black Sabbath and Kyuss in the 70′s and 80′s. Today, bands such as Belgium’s Drive Like Maria and Elvis Deluxe are helping to carry the stoner rock flag – with the latter’s bio stating a lifelong affection for 70′s-influenced stoner rock.

The Netherlands very own Astrosoniq take the fuzzy tone so often seen in stoner rock and apply a faster pace to the proceedings, whereas Russia’s The Grand Astoria add an almost British-sounding psychedelic influence with heavy use of phaser, tremolo and chorus effects on their infectious riffs.

Black Water Rising mix up stoner rock with a distinct southern rock feel on “Black Bleeds Through” whilst the vocals on “Visine” by Honcho show a clear nod to the stylings of Ozzy Osbourne. Both bands have a whole host of tracks to stream full length on their artist pages.
