Stonerrock.com is a website initially run from December 15, 1999 - November 29, 2010 by Dan & Melanie of MeteorCity Records and All That Is Heavy. The site is intended to be rebooted at some point in 2018 by the new owners of All That Is Heavy.
Stonerrock.com began on 15 December 1999 as a resource for any kind of news, reviews, photography or information on the Stoner Rock genre, building a community of it's own. Early on the website managed to document early interviews of a host of different bands within the scene such as High on Fire and Ufomammut among others.
Eventually the community grew with a forum hosting fans and musicians from the same community, even hosting yearly mega-features on the best Stoner Rock albums from that respective year. In 2004 Stonerrock.com would merge with All That Is Heavy and maintain an association with MeteorCity Records upon purchase of both entities by Beland. On 29 November 2010 Stonerrock.com would call it a day, having had 58,866 registered members and 3,233,338 forum posts in it's existence.
On 25 December 2017 it would be announced the website would be rebooted for 2018. On 20 April 2018 the new site was relaunched as a forum.
NOTE: Among the interviews, studio reports, tour diaries and live specials this is a list of select feature pieces on the website.
- K666 Radio - An online radio station dedicated to stoner rock and sponsored by the site.
- Top 10 Stoner Rock Albums... - A series of articles depicting usually the Top Ten Stoner Rock Albums of that year though one article was done for the site's picks for the Top Ten of The 21st Century.
