KYUSS BLUES FOR THE RED SUN reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
It all came together for Kyuss on this album, in which the band expanded the vocabulary of doom metal by incorporating a hefty injection of grunge influence (and inhaling copious amounts of something else besides). The band's confident stoner anthems pointed the way to a new style of doom, based not on retro-worship of classic 1970s bands or the operatic gloom of Candlemass/Solitude Aeturnus but a fusion of classic heavy riffs with modern musical influences - thematically uniting these ingredients through the generation-spanning appreciation of the green herb. But you don't need to toke up to appreciate this laid-back slacker-metal classic, with pieces like Thong Song combining crushing riffs with endearingly goofy lyrics.

Blues For The Red Sun is the second studio album by the legendary stoner/desert rock band Kyuss, it has went on to become an absolute classic of the genre and is one of the most influential and well loved records in the entire movement since it was released in 1992.

Blues For The Red Sun contains a lot of the band’s most famous material such as ‘Green,’ ‘Thong Song,’ ‘Thumb,’ and ‘Mondo Generator,’ and Kyuss’s lineup features Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri, Brant Bjork and John Garcia all of whom have become synonymous with interesting and creative music.

The album famously features the technique of playing guitars through bass amplifiers for a unique sounding distortion and the entire scope of musicianship is really impressive with creative techniques and unique ways of playing that many would go on to imitate but few would ever be able to surpass. The quality of songwriting is hugely consistent and the album flows perfectly from beginning to end in a brilliantly hypnotic fashion. There are no weak moments, no track is out of place and no note is wasted.

Overall, Blues For The Red Sun is an utterly essential album that no Kyuss fan should be without and that every fan of creative and interesting rock and metal music should give serious consideration to trying out. A true classic record.

Kyuss, the godfathers of the stoner metal. This record is after ´Welcome to the Sky Valley´ the second best album of Kyuss in my opinion. The opening track ´Thumb´ is a great way to open this album. The heavy guitar sounds in combination with the voice of John Garcia is the definition of Stoner metal. Also ´Green Machine´ is a great track, kyuss did also release a video for this track. If you are not familiar with stoner metal, ´blues for the red sun´ is a great way to get introduced with it. The album is a little bit easy to listen, but it is great stoner metal. When i´m listening to this record again and again i keep thinking as the last track of this record called; YEAH!
