Druganaut are a brilliant Stoner Metal Band from my home town of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I have known of their existence for a while as they have a fearsome reputation on the live circuit.

Well I been meaning to catch them for a while but I never got the chance till last night when they opened up for Karma To Burn with main support from the excellent Desert Storm.

They blew me away with their blend of hard-rocking Doom/Stoner Metal riffs that is heavy from the word go. These guys are the real deal folks. A hugely talented band that I recommend you all check out now. They are giving away 2 excellent EP's for free download on SoundCloud right now.

Assemble and Shake Your Bones. Both EP's contain 4 tracks that run for 4 mins each. Both contain some top-notch loud angry Stoner Metal riffage to show you what these guys do brilliantly well.

Check out excellent track Carradine's Closet (named after David Carradine's misadventure in Thailand. Great track which shows the guys great humour), Smoke The Dead and Sober Again.

These guys have also opened up for Orange Goblin on their recent Newcastle date as well. So they are starting to get noticed in the world of Stoner Metal.

I expect big things from this great band in the years to come. They have the talent and vision to go a long way in the UK Stoner Metal scene.

I spoke to Craig very briefly at Karma To Burn he told me their new material is going to be heavier than ever. That I can't wait as these guys fucking rock big time.

So headover to their SoundCloud page right now and immerse yourself with the fucking mighty - DRUGANAUT.

Highly Recommended.
