Released on Friday the 13th of December 2019 this compilation couldn’t be a better presentation of the Belgian underground music scene. The Doomed & Stoned label from Portland Oregon U.S. serves the best in doom metal and stoner rock, intersecting over four decades of heavy music, with particular interest in underground bands, in the tradition of the ultimate godfathers of doom: Black Sabbath.
This collection contains forty-eight tracks with an enormous high quality and variation of heavy riff based walls of sound. The label calls Belgium to be the capital of underground music and they have a point here. Modesty is a virtue. All those bands work hard with pure dedication on their music besides family and jobs.
With bands like Stake (Steak Number Eight), AmenRa, Raketkanon (they quit this year), Brutus and Oathbraker already left the underground scene and touring worldwide, a new wave of dark treasures are to be discovered from the Belgian underground scene. Several instrumental bands wander between the sub genres like Psychedelic Blues Rock, Doom, Stoner Rock, Sludge Metal, Post Metal and Alternative Metal.
We won’t mention any band names on purpose because we want the listener to discover and to dig his way in. Big names and unknown names are present on Doomed & Stoned in Belgium. This killer is available at a name your price deal on the label’s Bandcamp page.
The Doomed & Stoned in Belgium release made us proud. Support, obey and spread the Belgian riff!
