Just a couple days ago I was gonna post a thread requesting "western metal" but saw I was beat to it. Anyway, I'm looking for any metal, rock or punk that's both lyrically and musically inspired by the American Old West. I'm hugely into Dezperadoz and Ghoultown. Dislike Redwest. Anything fairly ballsy is preferred. Examples:

Just remembered having posted this - I'd still love to have more bands/songs of this ilk, any help is much appreciated.

Also, that vocal recording pic confirmed what I suspected: SLK records shirtless in a sweaty caveman-like delirium. You can almost hear the man stink in the recordings.

THANK YOU! I have been trying to remember the name of a cool western metal band I had found on myspace a few years back, and it was Ghoultown!

Give Stoner Train a try. They're pretty good.

Leeches of Lore's latest full length is pretty rad. Psychedelic rock/speed metal/whatever. It's a bunch of different shit with a variety of influences, but cheesy, old style Western is quite prevalent.

Edit: Fuck, nevermind. Didn't realize this thread was nearly 2 years old.
