I was really happy to recieve the "Welcome Back to MeteorCity
" compilation as a gift with my last
All That is Heavy order - a recently released sampler from the MeteorCity label which is the house record label of stonerrock.com/All That is Heavy. (you know you order too much vinyl when you recieve a free gift with your order along with a note saying "thanks for all your business over the years", but I guess it's nice to be appreciated!).
For those of you who aren't familiar with the now legendary first MeteorCity sampler, here's what stonerrock.com had to say about it: "MeteorCity вЂњMach 1вЂ� released debut albums and/or very early recordings by Unida, Nebula, Dozer, The Atomic Bitchwax, The Hidden Hand, Goatsnake, Eternal Elysium, Spirit Caravan, Solace and many, many others! MeteorCity вЂњMach 2вЂ� has, in their first three years, released debut and/or new albums by heavy-hitters such as Black Pyramid, Snail, Nightstalker, Elder, Farflung, Flood, Freedom Hawk, SardoniS, Village of Dead Roads and Let the Night Roar, amongst many others."
This is a fantastic compilation and a great way to discover new tunes since delving into the material released by MeteorCity can be a little daunting, but after getting into it there is a huge spectrum of amazing heavy bands to discover and I can confidently say you will come out of this with one, two, three... or maybe a huge list of bands to check out further.
So you'll have to excuse me... I have a new record label to be obsessed with.
