    Not sure how I found them. Just heard the first May Blitz (1970) album. Mind blown. Heavy, stoned out, psych rock. Magnificent.

    Only album I have is Midnight Cometh (2016) and it's great. So I don't know if they've maintained their mojo, but that album has plenty.

    This came up on my YT feed. I've been listening to obscure, early 70s, proto-psych-metal all weekend and a group called ....Strawberry Path, from Japan shows up. The album is titled... When The Raven Comes To Earth.

    Very good. Heavy guitar riffs and Hammond, kinda prog too. Listening to a track titled......Mary Jane on My Mind.

    I heard Iron Claw a couple weeks ago. Good stuff. I'll check out Tin House.

    Also heard a group from Iceland called Icecross. Same era, early 70s proto-metal. The album art is very stoner metal.

    Just heard .... Witchfinder General. Kinda England's version of Trouble. Very Sabbathian, but the lead singer is barely tolerable. Great riffs, heavy, adventurous, but bad singing.

    He is one of doom metal's most iconic vocalists. Just like Tim Baker (Cirith Ungol) or Scott Reagers (Saint Vitus).

    Don't ask me why, but my whole life I've always pictured Uncle Deadly from the Muppets when I listen to Cirith Ungol. I know Uncle Deadly doesn't sound like that at all, but there you go.

    New album from Bonehawk! Been a big fan since their previous one, "Albino Rhino". Songs full of constructed twin guitar instrumental passages a la Thin Lizzy or Wishbone Ash. They even have a 3-song EP of Thin Lizzy covers but they are deep cuts, not the obvious classic rock tunes.

    The new Camel Driver still rocks.
    The older I get, the better I was.
