about

Quite simply, England is where it all began. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and, of course, the band that laid the first true blueprint for heavy metal: Black Sabbath. Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill channelled a particular kind of English darkness, drawing from Aleister Crowley, a bloody Christian history, a strong folk heritage and their bleaker than bleak surroundings to create a genre that has blossomed over the last few decades, but began decidedly slowly.

As anyone who has visited Blighty can attest, it is often a dreary place to be, covered in grey skies and soaking rain. Perhaps Orwell put it best: "The beer is bitterer, the coins are heavier, the grass is greener". And the grass certainly is greener, with the Englishman's penchant for the finest smoke, and not forgetting their perfect climate for copious amounts of magic mushrooms. It's no wonder England has birthed many of the most influential musical artists of all time, and this also applies to the sub-genres of doom and stoner. Take a trip to England here, courtesy of a selection of the strongest bands currently playing low and slow. - Joe Allen
