Belzebong are a stoner metal band from Kielce, Poland. Since the band's formation in 2008 they currently have two albums under their belt and have toured Europe on multiple occasions.

Along with their weed-themed instrumental doom the band is best known for their "Dude" psuedonyms, keeping their faces obscured whether by hair or fog and tongue-in-cheek nature to their music as implicated in many interviews. All of their music to date, barring samples, is instrumental.

HistoryEdit

Belzebong formed in 2008 with the lineup of Cheesy Dude, Felony Dude, Sleepy Dude and Alky Dude. Supposedly they had a vocalist at one point (Mary Dude, 2008-2011) but no known recordings of the band with a vocalist exist. Belzebong themselves joked about the vocalist in an interview with It's Psychedelic Baby:

“Once we had a vocalist, but, as the legend goes, we forgot to pick him up from a parking lot somewhere along the highway and there’s a rumor that says his ghost now wanders the streets of Salem.”
 
— Alky Dude, It's Psychedelic Baby [1]

The band's earliest known show according to their Facebook was on March 14, 2010[2] Eventually at some point in 2009 a demo was released with their debut album Sonic Scapes and Weedy Groves following in 2011 after a multitude of shows leading up the the album's release. The band's first known tour followed in 2012, known as the Smoke of Madness tour. A one-song EP titled Dungeon Vultures came in 2013 with The Dungeon Tour to follow.[3]

With more tours to follow, the band would start work on a second album. Belzebong released their second album through Emetic entitled Greenferno in 2015.They are currently associated with Sounds of Liberation and had a tour in March 2016 with Stoned Jesus and Mars Red Sky titled Up in Smoke.[4] Also announced was an appearance at Psycho Festival in Las Vegas, presumably their first known show in the United States. The band toured with Sonic Wolves in early 2017 and followed up with their first tour of South America the same year.
