The latest of Doomed & Stoned’s critically acclaimed series documenting the explosion of heavy underground music around the world takes us on a journey through the lowlands and highlands of Scotland!
There’ll be plenty to discover in Doomed & Stoned in Scotland (2021), featuring 40 bands specializing in doom metal, stoner rock, and eclectic genre blending. Of special note is the classic band IRON CLAW, founded in 1969 — perhaps Scotland’s earliest proponent of stoner-doom. Each of these bands have their own unique styles, with a penchant for expansive and picturesque storytelling.
The country’s Gaelic name is Alba (pronounced “Al-eh-ba”) and it’s worth noting the ancient tribe that settled it were called Caledonians — an old word that means “hard” or “tough.” You can hear that age-old rough ‘n tumble spirit reflected in the rock and metal of Scotland, especially, which we aim to explore in Vol. 37 of our Bandcamp collection.
