Queens of the Stone Age

Biography

American rock band Queens Of The Stone Age was formed in 1997 in California. The group has its own recognizable sound: they combine heavy riffs and atmosphere of the psychedelic rock. That kind of music appeared in the nineties and it was titled the stoner rock, and Queens Of The Stone Age, in their turn, are definitely among the brightest representatives of that style.

The debut self-titled album Queens Of The Stone Age was released in 1998 and it was critically acclaimed. That record was included into the famous book “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die”, and that fact proves the highest quality of the band’s first studio work. Moreover, the rockers’ debut long play was certified Silver in the UK, and their next album Rated R, released in 2000, proved to be more successful. Queens Of The Stone Age were gaining popularity and Rated R was certified Gold in Great Britain. It is worth mentioning that the respected magazine Rolling Stone placed Rated R to the 82 place in the list of Best Albums of Decade.

Numerous musical experts agreed that Queens Of The Stone Age third studio attempt titled Songs For The Deaf was one of the band’s best works. Songs For The Deaf was really enjoyed on both sides of the Atlantic, and pretty soon that long play was certified Gold in the US and Platinum if the UK: that situation proved that songs of Queens Of The Stone Age were called-for and the fans had been waiting for them indeed. In 2005 the band released two records: fourth studio album Lullabies To Paralyze (2005), which got fair reviews from the critics, and the live album Over The Years And Through The Woods (2005) that managed to preserve the atmosphere of Queens Of The Stone Age performances.

The fifth album Era Vulgaris was issued in 2007 and it pleased the band’s fans with the new and fresh sound, which became heavier in comparison with Lullabies To Paralyze. The rockers presented the brand new sound, including elements of punk, rock and blues, and the music lovers enjoyed that cocktail a lot. There is absolutely no doubt that Era Vulgaris will be interesting both for old Queens Of The Stone Age fans and for those who are just going to get acquainted with their creativity.
