Kyuss - Blues For The Red Sun

Blues For The Red Sun is the second studio album by the legendary stoner/desert rock band Kyuss, it has went on to become an absolute classic of the genre and is one of the most influential and well loved records in the entire movement since it was released in 1992.

Blues For The Red Sun contains a lot of the band’s most famous material such as ‘Green,’ ‘Thong Song,’ ‘Thumb,’ and ‘Mondo Generator,’ and Kyuss’s lineup features Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri, Brant Bjork and John Garcia all of whom have become synonymous with interesting and creative music.

The album famously features the technique of playing guitars through bass amplifiers for a unique sounding distortion and the entire scope of musicianship is really impressive with creative techniques and unique ways of playing that many would go on to imitate but few would ever be able to surpass. The quality of songwriting is hugely consistent and the album flows perfectly from beginning to end in a brilliantly hypnotic fashion. There are no weak moments, no track is out of place and no note is wasted.

Overall, Blues For The Red Sun is an utterly essential album that no Kyuss fan should be without and that every fan of creative and interesting rock and metal music should give serious consideration to trying out. A true classic record.
