Default Clutch

For starters I am a huge clutch fan, one of my all time favorite bands, and there's no one out there like em so far. I have 7 of there albums and one vinyl of Slow Hole to China. I love everything they've made, from there angry angsty start, to there jammin blues style of today, and there just as spectacular to see live. So any other Clutch fans out there, or anyone out there not like them for a specific or any reason?

Their 1995 self-titled is fantastic. I love some of the riffs they create and the bass is infectious.

Agreed, but there is so many better stoner rock bands out there. Creativity, origonality, and overall sound wise.

Granted half of these bands had members that were in Kyuss or MM at one point.

I f*cking hate Monster Magnet. Nebula, Kyuss, even Fu Manchu I've learned to tolerate, but Dave Wyndorf will always be my emotional dartboard.

And I disagree. Clutch definitely had an original sound. It wasn't as massive as other stoner rock bands in the same era, but they certainly stand up compared to the rest. They didn't have to resort to downtuning, at any rate.

You should check out Colour Haze then. Unless you have already listened to them that is. They have an extremely good riff driven sound that is still "stoner rock" but stays far enough away from the sound of Kyuss FM and MM. Personally I like the album Periscope because its very dirty sounding in that production is kept to a minimum and guitars are given a muddy distorted sound.

clutch is awesome when they're on but they have some duds too. the 'pure rock fury' album is pretty much all filler aside from the title track. the most recent one i heard, 'beale street to oblivion' was top notch from start to finish but 'jam room' stands as my personal favourite.

I remember loving their self-titled album when it came out. I never heard any of their subsequent albums, but weren't they more of a hardcore band in the beginning and then they slowly developed into a stoner band? I remember thinking of them as kind of funk-ish hardcore back when I listened to them.
