Desert Rock is not identical to but there is much overlap. Desert Rock has more of an expansive and windswept sound, using acoustic instruments or heavy and slow wah-wah to achieve these effects and can have more emphasis on extended soloing or subdued trance-like passages than repetitive full-on grooves. It has a more spaced-out psychedelic vibe, suggesting being lost in the desert on peyote. The genre began at the same time as the stoner boom with Kyuss and has a more folky, country-esque feel at times than the groove rock or stoner doom of their contemporaries, and also includes the more psychedelia-inclined bands that arose with grunge such as Screaming Trees.
