Stoner doom music on the radio

Stoner doom, also known as stoner metal, is a subgenre of heavy metal music that emerged in the 1990s. The genre is characterized by slow, heavy, and droning riffs, often with a fuzzed-out or distorted guitar sound, and a focus on creating a hypnotic and repetitive atmosphere.

One of the most popular stoner doom bands is Sleep, who gained notoriety with their 1992 album "Sleep's Holy Mountain". Other notable bands in the genre include Electric Wizard, Om, and Weedeater.

Stoner doom has a dedicated following and there are several radio stations that specialize in playing music from this genre. Some of the most popular stations include Stoner Rock Radio, Stoned Meadow of Doom, and Doom Metal Front Radio. These stations not only play music from established stoner doom bands but also feature up-and-coming artists who are keeping the genre alive and pushing it in new directions.
