Hey fellow TBers,
In search of inspiration for my own band project, I'd like to tap the collective knowledge of TB to toss some recommendations my way.
I'm looking for doom or stoner bands that incorporate genre-untypical instruments like saxophone or piano (I know the latter has been on Electric Wizard's Let Us Prey
. Especially those two as I play them myself. (Guitarist of my last band and I are starting up an originals band crossing the genres of doom and jazz; right now we are composing music to various short stories of a rather dark nature. Biggest influences are EW, Bohren, Earth, Dexter Gordon, Wayne Shorter, Davis, Hypnos 69 and various other associated acts. We play all the instruments, him on guitar and drums, me on bass, sax, piano - suffice it to say we are probably more of a studio band doing weird stuff twiddling knobs than a bar band)
The only thing that comes somewhat close is a band called Fertility Cult: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4g5wuMo-xLw
Any recommendations are welcome, or if you can point me in the direction of a band database where I might find something, that'd also be appreciated.
