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.
