Acid King

Formed in 1993 in San Francisco by Lori S., Acid King's first two albums represent different takes on the stoner/doom sound, with the earlier Zoroaster bearing a slight similarity to a slower version of early Kyuss, while the more recent Busse Woods is further slowed down, with drawn-out heavy riffs reminiscent of Electric Wizard, and rather sparse vocals. Both are solid albums in the stoner field and are quite recommended. The band recently released their third album, appropriately titled III. A trivia note: Lori was once married to Melvins drummer Dale Crover.
