With a name like Weedeater, its pretty clear that the North Carolina trio are an unabashed stoner metal/rock band (not to mention press photos that often include piles of weed). However, their new album Jason... The Dragon could also be referred to as cabin metal, and if anthropomorphized, most of the tracks here would be a ferociously stoned grizzly bear. They're thick, fuzzy, towering tunes that take a lot of cues from Sleep, but also mix in a hint of blues as well. In between the monstrous cuts are songs like the banjo-driven "Whiskey Creek," and the twangy "Palms of Opium," which appears to have been written (and possibly recorded) by the band in the backwoods on a porch in a rocking chair with a floppy-eared hound dog asleep at their feet.
