    Cool, cant wait to hear it. Haven't listened to any Stoner rock stuff in a while(As Sleep and Black Cobra haven't been coming up recently on My Ipod shuffle). I will give it a listen when I gets home today.

    I got a chance to listen to the 2 tracks yesterday and have to say that I really enjoyed it. I like the atmospheric stuff mixed with the big riffs. Thanks for sharing.

    OK, that is pretty cool stuff. The vocals took me by surprise - the clean vocals were quite nice, and the cookie monster stuff didn't bother me at all! Nice work.

    Sanford and Sonny Bluebeard is on the entire time, except for the clean jam part towards the end of Arcane Groves
    Heavy Electronics El Oso on the big massive riffs

    Good stuff, man. Strong vocals. You don't really hear that much in stoner rock.

    As a matter of fact... I think the growly vox take away a bit of the strength of the clean. Growly metal bands are a dime a dozen, but singers with your mouthdude's range are rare these days (though the growls therein are pretty dope).

    Two resin-stained thumbs up.

    Awesome stuff, I love it. Bought a download copy, and liked on FB.

    Great work all around. How soon are You Guys looking at recording more?

    Thanks man! Really appreciate the support.

    We actually have enough solid material to do a full length right now, but we've only played 3 shows so far! We've been focusing quality over quantity, but have some cool gigs lined up.

    Would be nice if we could start working on a full length in the Spring, but we have to figure out where our financial priorities are. This EP has been so well received, we may work on getting it put on vinyl as one of our next steps. Unfortunately Arcane Groves is too long to fit on one side of a 7" :p

    Really good dude, clean vocals were unexpected but very well done (my stoner/doom band uses clean as well). Looking forward to hearing more from you, although i'm on the wrong side of the planet to catch one of your shows any time soon :(

    I must say, I love the vibe that You Guy's genre has going on. Knowing, that I was a huge fan of the "M.O.R - Sabotage" era Sabbath stuff, My Younger brother turned Me on to some Stoner rock a few years back. Honestly, the thought has crossed My mind several times to get into playing it, but I am unfamiliar with any folks that may be in the "scene" in My area. That being said, at this point in the game being suddenly bandless at the moment, certainly makes Me want to try it even more. Funny thing, the last time I played anything remotely close was back in the 90's (Grungy /Hardcore stuff).

    I totally understand (time and money spent), if You're gonna do it, by all means do it right. A vinyl would be sick, but if it wont go on a 7" format may as well hold out for a dual 12" full length ;)(I'm an idiot for vinyl).

    It is a blast. The genre has no rules, just play what grooves and is fun.

    I know some pretty prolific bands have come out of Georgia (Mastodon, Black Tusk, Kylesa, etc) but not sure how the scene is there. Pittsburgh in general has a very musician-friendly scene. Lots of people come out to shows, so playing out is a great time.

    Awesome. I think that is what I found missing from the typical local "Rock" scene that I've been around for the past few years. Yes, I am familiar with Mastodon (which I really like), but the others are new to Me. I will check them out for sure.
