Bongzilla (Madison, USA)
Stoner legends back after a 10-year hiatus! Pretty sure this is their first time in Scotland!
Bongzilla is a stoner metal band from Madison, Wisconsin. As their name suggests, most of their material is related
to marijuana and promotes its legalization. The band formed in 1995, and over the next three years recorded and released a dozen songs on EPs and split singles. In 1998 they signed to Relapse Records, and have since released four studio albums and a live album through the label.
With a Black Sabbath-on-downers encrusted sound that blends billowing rock, clenched-teeth blues and an underground punk attitude, Bongzilla fire up thunderous mega-rock with a pronounced emphasis on the "big riff." Their next album, Gateway, showcased a Bongzilla sound simultaneously aggressive and mellow, with thunderous percussion, smoke-seared vocals and infectious, fuzzed-out riffs baked to perfection
Dopethrone (Hochelaga, Canada)
"DOPETHRONE are the kind of humans that eat the blues for lunch and wash it all down with a giant jug of crust punch!
This is one of those bands that will have the crusty punks head banging right next to the stoners, both united under the bad sign of doom."
