Toronto, Canada

Sons Of Otis are a Stoner Doom Metal band, hailing from Toronto, Canada. They formed in 1992 as Otis, which they took from a character in the movie Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer. After their debut EP called Paid To Suffer in 1994, they changed their name to Sons Of Otis. They were signed to The Music Cartel, which ceased its activities in 2005. They are known for their trance-like neuron-firing live performances which included spinning lights and smoke machines.

After a lengthy hiatus, in April 2007 Sons of Otis released a split with Queen Elephantine on Concrete Lo-Fi Records.

After a long hold-up, their new album “Exiled” saw light in February 2009 via Small Stone Recordings. It features the two songs previously released on the Queen Elephantine Split, as well as four brand new tracks, and continues the tradition of their “Heavy psychedelic doom blues” (quote from the band’s MySpace site).

Three years later, they finished “Seismic”, again released on Small Stone.

    Seismic is so fucking good. These guys are one of the best Doom bands of all time.

    Anyway, in my opinion it is a bit boring. There's as much in the way of progression as what I expected, the riffs for some of the songs really don't impress me much and ultimately make the album drag along. It almost seems like there's a lack of jamming on the album. It's a shame because the production on it is actually really good and sounds clear, but I think if there were one more good song tacked on the end, or one more jam I would've liked the album overall a bit more. It just needs more to break up the monotony of the first half.

    StinkyBeaverOoz Wow. You rant about people calling this album boring as being a "generic" response and the best you can do is "Seismic is pretty good"?... It's quite ironic that your own quote sums you up well: "you really don't know music you want people to think you do". Dude, if you're going to insult people for having an opinion, do it right.

    I love when people say an album is boring. That's about the most generic description you can give and basically says to me you really don't know music you want people to think you do. You probably never even listened to the album yet. Seismic is pretty good. Not Son's of Otis' best album but a very good album. NOT BORING. So fucking generic.

    I'm a little disappointed of Seismic, but second part of this album is great. The album start from PK to me.
