Sons Of Otis

Canada's kings of spacey, psychedelic sludge metal, Sons Of Otis was formed in Toronto in 1992 (then named just Otis, with the "Sons Of" added later to avoid conflict with another band of the same name) and have attained near-cult status as one of the heaviest bands on the planet. Their style consists of an ultra-fuzzy, distorted guitar sound, heavily echoed vocals, and songs that range in tempo from slow to slower, maybe the kind of music to listen to while drifting in outer space.
