Rainbow – Man on the Silver Mountain (Happy 420)

Band Country of Origin: The UK

Genre: Heavy fucking metal

Lyrical Themes: Fantasy, Rock (early), Relationships, Love

Happy 420 metal heads! I hope you all left out cookies and weed for Snoop Dog yesterday on 420 Eve. On this special day I’d like to play for you one of my favorite stoner songs. Technically Rainbow is not “Stoner Rock,” but the themes of this song are certainly pretty drugged out.

Rainbow is a combination of the heavy metal titans Dio and Ritchie Blackmore, although was mostly Ritchie Blackmore’s solo project.

I posted a live version of this song. Even though the sound quality is not the best you can certainly feel the power and the energy. You can sense the band feeding off the electric energy of the crowd.

If you’re looking for some stoner rock suggestions, I’d definitely say check out Sleep’s Holy Mountain, Temple Ufomammut, and Fairies Wear Boots Black Sabbath
