Christian Stoner Metal?

Post by Ragnor on Sun Mar 20, 2016 1:16 am

So I know it sounds like an oxymoron, but I bet it is out there. I've been getting into a lot more stoner music such as Moon Tooth, Mutiod Man, Graveyard (not truely stoner but kinda) and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Is there such a thing as Christian Stoner Metal?

Starchild

I don't think they are still together, but there is a good band to check out.

Also, if you can find it, the band Wrench.  The releases are super duper hard to find.

I have all of Starchild, and no I don't believe Christian stoner doom metal is odd at all. In fact, many who use certain herbs claim faith in Christ.

Anyway, yes Starchild is the only one you will get that deep beefy Sabbath crunch, especially on the self-titled release.

Some more bands I'd say are darn near the sound you are looking for are:

Place of Skulls, Goliath, Forsaken, Last Chapter, Nomad Son, Trouble... you may even want to check out David Benson though you are probably already familiar.

deathisgain, a member here, has a pretty sweet doom project called Warpriest. I don't think there is an actual release yet but the samples I've heard are fantastic.

That's really about all I can think of offhand. Maybe some others can think of more.

It's a lack in the Christian metal scene, really.

Cool topic, I'm always looking for any metal/hard rock sub-genre with a Christian influence. Gotta check some of these bands out this week.

Glad to see someone mentioned Goliath.  Starchild and Place of Skulls, for sure.

You might google Christian Doom Alliance and see what comes up--I don't think it's active anymore, but there might be some old pages floating around with helpful info.

These are more epic doom than stoner but they are very good bands.

There really isn't much stoner metal within the Christian scene.  Starchild was mentioned already but there's a related band called Stars That Move.  They've got a female vocalist so I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but they're in the same vein as Starchild.

Under The Sun is more traditional doom metal, but they're very good and highly underrated.



Place Of Skulls was mentioned too and while they're again more traditional doom metal than stoner, they're very excellent and one of the best in the scene IMO.

I would also recommend Hounds of Hasselvander, which veers toward Christian on later albums.  Joe H. was formerly of raven and I believe Pentagrasm.  I'd say more traditional than stoner, but the Ninth Hour is PHENOMENAL.  Trust me on this.

^Ah those albums have been on my wantlist for a while!  Do you know if they're readily available?

True dat.  Its an effective medicine.
I think "lets get high" is out of bounds and rings of substance abuse, but when one toke hits as hard as an OTC Benedryl and has all the pain relief needed for the day, its a freakin' blessing to have.
(and that's someone with cancer talking)

Yeah, I agree as well. I didn't mean to say that one could not be a believer and take a toke every once in a while. Hell, I vote for it to be legalized in my state. It is just a very controversial issue for most Christians so I assumed that Christian stoner music would be quite few and far between.

I think more of the faith based controversy is around recreational use than its legality (which is already changing) or accepting its benefits as a medication.  ...but that's just my observation.  Wink  My very conservative (Baptist) mother would never condone smoking weed for fun or "just because", but she perked up when she read studies regarding cannabis use and migraine relief - and she's had CHRONIC (no pun intended) migraines for the past 37 years.

Ninth Hour is readily available on Amazon and similar places for an ordinary price.  There are 2 releases since then, including one that just came out--but I haven't seen them on CD yet, except for from a place in Germany that was super expensive.

Wow, really, really soiid stuff--very old school.  Not stoner, in my book, but classic doom.  Do you foresee a full release anytime in the near future?

Thanks. Not sure. Kerrick keeps bugging me over it, and my title won't change until I do. Wink

Hi! New to the forum. I discovered Under The Sun via this thread....thought I'd contribute.


Black With Stars is a newer band that's really good:

https://blackwithstars.bandcamp.com/album/black-with-stars




Also, I just released a project that someone might dig:

Rose's last album before the most recent one, Into the Unknown, had a more distinct stoner rock vibe than his other stuff.

Glad you like 'em. I can only personally vouch for my own faith (FS is me). That being said; I think you'll find BWS's lyrics (on their bandcamp page) to be legit.
