There’s some interview with Jason Simon that I can’t find where he says that most stoner rock looks at the early 70s metal/psychedelic rock divide and hops on board with metal, whereas Dead Meadow just pretended like metal never happened and stayed on making psychedelic rock. I feel like this is what makes them so unique but also frustratingly hard to find similar bands to. Including even their influences, are there other bands that genuinely sound like Dead Meadow, or are they just in a class of their own?
I feel like I’ve been looking for other bands like Dead Meadow since I discovered them 16, 17 years ago, but wind up getting the same recommendations for Sleepy Sun and Black Mountain over and over again. Is there anything else out there that has the same approach as Dead Meadow?
