STONE KINGS : Self-titled: CD

Visually, this is as cheesy as it gets, complete with logos of huge corporate online locales to “network” and “follow” this band. Sonically, somehow, this is an almost ridiculous approximation of ‘90s stoner rock. Imagine Kyuss with a really crappy singer and you have the Stone Kings. It would not have been bad at four tunes or so, but this thing is over an hour and really starts to grate. Honestly, this should probably be worse considering this band proclaims both Incubus and Nickelback as huge influences. Hell, even the putrid Queens Of The Stone Age will beat out that shit.
