"Iron Mtn, a band from Los Angeles you should check out. These guys have played already with 16, Black Cobra, Zoroaster... just to name a few... this self titled ep is something you should play after work, during the smoke session. The album starts downtuned/stoner/psychedelic and it ends the same, it's an instrumental band and i don't care about that, vocals are not needed. For fans of Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, Cough or Zoroaster., highly recommended, headbanging in slow motion."
"Iron Mtn are a four-piece from Los Angeles that play a satisfyingly hazy, occasionally animated brand of instrumental stoner doom that's perfectly suited to accompany any sort of plans to piss away a day by rolling around in the sun. The requisite Sabbath swagger is fully present within the riffs and bottom-heavy bass, but leads are generally abandoned in favor of coloring the corners with sporadic keyboard psychedlics/whoops 'n' bleeps to help round out the fun. The principal focus is establishing a deep swagger, and "Erebus" alone is worth the price of admission in that regard."
"Iron Mtn's sound is heavy & bluesy psychedelic at the same time. These guys throw out some crushing riffs while staying really dynamic in their own distinct way.
Their s/t debut is a great offering for any lover of instrumental stoner/ doom with raw edges. The hints of psychedelica & bluesy riffs are a welcome addition that keep the sound interesting & balanced throughout the 5 tracks."
"Iron Mtn are a brilliant Instrumental Stoner Metal band mixing element of Doom, Krautrock and even Noise Rock to highly original effect.
The debut album is a 5 song 33 minute blast of top-notch Instrumental Stoner Metal riffs which adds elements of KrautRock, Doom and Noise Rock to highly original effect.
This is an album you can lose yourself in over and over again as its full of hypnotic psych based Stoner Metal riffs to get your teeth stuck into. Its superbly produced and things do get very loud at times. So if your into spacey psychedelic instrumental Stoner Metal then Iron Mtn is the band for you.
Iron Mtn are brilliant musicians and know how to play mighty fine riffs to impress you with over and over again.
This seriously is a superb all album I urge you to download it now as it will make a great addition to anybody’s record collection. It’s seriously that great.
Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant. Highly Recommended."
"This is one of the better finds so far in 2012. It’s fine instrumental doom metal with a psychedelic and stoner flair."
"This is some fine shit here. Imagine if you had the finest seed and were able to grow the finest most potent strain of weed known to man. That is what Iron Mtn is. It's instrumental stoner/doom rock. Oh is it good."
