As Swedish stoner/sludge/doom titans Snailking prepare to release their debut album Storm (9/16, Consoling Sounds), guitarist and vocalist Pontus Ottosson checks in with his top-10 playlist. Check back next week for a review of the new album. In the meantime, check out a few tracks here: http://snailking.bandcamp.com/album/storm. Huge thanks to Pontus for his participation.
Sleep – “Dragonaut” (Holy Mountain, 1992)
“This together with Electric Wizard is what got me into stoner and doom metal many years ago. I actually heard it in the movie Gummo for the first time.”
OM – “At Giza” (Conference of the Birds, 2006)
“Two thirds of Sleep, bass, drums and vocals only. This is music you start cults to.”
