Rad stays rad. A few ideas are timeless. Stoner is Brant Bjork (guitar/vocals), Nick Oliveri (bass/vocals) and Ryan Gut (drums), and from flowing jams to all-out punker blasts, they know what they’re doing. It ain’t anybody’s first time at the dance, and you don’t call your band Stoner if you’ve never heard the word before. Stoner, however straight-ahead their moniker, encompass varied styles and the songwriting of Bjork and Oliveri – both founders of Kyuss, also Mondo Generator, Ché, Fu Manchu, Bloodcot, and more between them. Atop the classic-style swing and flow from Gut (also of Bjork’s solo band), Stoner keep it casual and wear the name as only those who helped create the sound could.
Hailing from the west of Norway, the four-piece Slomosa have been making waves across borders. Based out of Bergen, Norway the band has coined their own genre - Tundra Rock - drawing their influences from the bands of the 90’s rock scenes. Inspired by bands such as Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age and Sleep, their music is both heavy and groovy at the same time, with raw vocals and thunderous guitars, topped with catchy hooks. Since their start the band has built up a solid reputation as a live band, with their energetic and loud live shows.
