Produced with the help of San Fransisco's legendary engineer Billy Anderson, this is the album that Lori and Co. were born to make. Filled with thundering low end and fat ass riffs III will redefine the definition of the word heavy for years to come.

This is how it’s done. Acid King’s III is a testament to the heavy. They’re among the leaders of psychedelic stoner metal. Less spacey than label mates Sons of Otis, more jam-oriented than doom outfits like Ufomammut and Electric Wizard, Acid King exist in a thunderous low-end that shakes foundations even at the lowest volume. Listening to songs like “”Wheel Nation” or “On to Everafter” is like watching molasses pour out of a jar. It’s thick and viscous, pooling together in a meaty muck. III’s one of those albums that refuses to let go of your subconscious. Chalk it up to Lori S’s spectral croon and her dense guitar riffs, or the heavier than thou rhythm section of Joey Osbourne (drums) and Guy Pinhas (bass).

Awesome slow stoner doom from a band that's perfected what they do.
