At this point, Portland’s Red Fang are psych-metal veterans. In less than a decade they’ve signed to the biggest names in the genre (Sargent House, Relapse Records) and they’ve toured with the likes of Helmet, Black Tusk and Mastodon all around the world. If you’re looking for a stoner metal band to name drop without looking like a total doofus, it’s Red Fang. Alongside Los Angeles sludge heroes Big Business and the Misfits-worshiping American Sharks, you can rest assured that neo-grunge and the heavy rock riffs of you’ve grown to love, are still in full force.
