Genre: Stoner Rock, Psychedelic Metal
Location: Toronto, Canada
Label: Tee Pee Records
Any regular readers here will know that I have a major sweet tooth for stoner rock, and it looks like the best place for that right now is Canada, with Vancouver’s heavy-hitters Black Mountain and Toronto’s melodic-metalheads Quest For Fire. After Quest For Fire’s self-titled debut last year, which was a favorite of mine, they quickly return with their second album, Lights From Paradise. The album fades in between big epic slow-jams and quick mega-riff psychedelia, which really turn out for a mind-blowing listen. Listen/download the second track, “Set Out Alone,” a quick taste of the riffage you will experience on the album. Light From Paradise is out on TeePee Records right now, and you can buy the LP/CD from the TP Store.
