Kyuss Blues For The Red Sun on LP 1992's Blues For The Red Sun is the influential second album from short lived Palm Desert, CA stoner/desert rock trailblazers Kyuss and final release recorded by the band's classic line-up of vocalist John Garcia, guitarist Josh Homme, bassist Nick Oliveri and drummer Brant Bjork. The explosive 14-song masterwork marks Kyuss' first with producer and Godfather of desert rock Chris Goss and therefore the true emergence of the band's powerful wall of sound with guitars tuned way down and amps turned way up. Goss remembers, "It was the loudest thing I'd ever heard in my life. And that's what I wanted to get on the record – all the frequencies clashing in the middle of the room. It was like sitting in the middle of a bowling alley when the balls are rolling down the wood. Kyuss had a rumble. I think that's one of the reasons people love them so much, because there's frequencies there that embrace you – you feel like you're there with them." The members of Kyuss officially went their separate ways for good in 1995 after only four genre defining albums with Homme and Oliveri forming Queens of the Stone Age, Garcia founding groups Unida, Slo Burn, and Hermana and Bjork joining Fu Manchu.
