Roachpowder  


Roachpowder is part of what appears to be a healthy Scandinavian stoner metal field (see also Spiritual Beggars and We). Though based in Sweden, half the band is of South American descent, with brothers Francisco and George both emigrating from their native Chile for political reasons. Musically the two albums released thus far are somewhat different in nature, with the debut being in the Sabbath/ Corrosion Of Conformity mold (perhaps with a bit of Motorhead mixed in), while the newer Atomic Church shows a very evident Monster Magnet vibe. Some lineup changes have taken place since the release of Atomic Church, though the current lineup isn't quite clear.
