Family tree: Scotland's psych / folk / stoner / doom metal scene
Featuring The Cosmic Dead, Skullwizard, Sunsmasher, Trembling Bells, Eierbal and more
This article is from 2014.
Interstellar psych explorers The Cosmic Dead play Doune the Rabbit Hole this August. They’re one of many Scottish acts with fingers in many musical pies, sharing their talents among various projects (Skullwizard, Pyramidion, Sunsmasher to name a few). But do you ever find this musical bed-hopping hard to follow? As part of a new regular thing, we’re mapping out the local music scene, one sub-genre at a time, to show the cross-pollination and collaborations at work. This time round it's Scotland's perhaps unexpectedly interrelated psych/folk/stoner/doom metal scene.
(NB: Space doesn’t allow this to be 100% comprehensive, but feel free to add your comments in the section below, about any omissions, personnel changes, web links, new side-projects etc. It's also worth noting that, due to their collaboration-friendly nature, some artists will also link in with other instalments in the Music Family Tree series, so you should check those out too.)
