Listen To 'Doomed & Stoned In New Zealand' Compilation

Thursday 10th May, 2018 10:11AM

Portland label and news site Doomed & Stoned have unveiled a twenty seven track compilation titled Doomed & Stoned in New Zealand, featuring a who's who of heavy music artists from throughout Aotearoa including Beast Wars, Earth Tongue, Bottle, Opium Eater, Mothra, Bloodnut and lots more. It's an excellent primer for getting your head around New Zealand's blazed sonic output, encompassing doom metal, stoner rock, psychedelia and even more sludgy guitar genre groupings. Listeners can discover new gems amidst some of the more familiar tunes on offer within the totally free to download collection, Doug McFarlane from Bloodnut (who also handled art duties) ruminated on the proliferation of New Zealand heavy music bands in the accompanying liner notes...

"There are two things New Zealand does well though: horror movies and heavy music. Maybe it's the climate, or perhaps it's the isolation, we'll probably never know because scientists are working on more important things. It could be the excellent cannabis we grow, or the very magic mushrooms that crop up around our scenic vistas, but for a country with only 4.7 million people, we have a surprising number of heavy bands."
