Added DiffLines:

* SelfTitledAlbum: ''Welcome to Sky Valley'' is technically a self-titled album, though due to the prominence of said phrase on the cover, this name stuck. Also, the aforementioned 1990 EP, back when they were called Sons of Kyuss.

What, you want more than that? OK. Kyuss were a highly influential American stoner rock[[note]]Kyuss qualified as both stoner rock and stoner metal; the two terms are not totally interchangable, but have a very large amount of overlap[[/note]] band from Palm Desert, California. They were the pioneers of their genre (stoner metal/rock), which is vaguely a subgenre of DoomMetal but often has very little to do with doom. Its characteristics include heavily detuned guitars, low-end-heavy sound (Josh Homme would plug his guitar into a bass amp for this very reason), massive Music/BlackSabbath influence, hallucinogenic themes and an overall insanely deep and heavy sound.

However, they didn't have nearly as much commercial success or recognition as QueensOfTheStoneAge, a band you've probably heard of that is fronted by Josh Homme, former guitarist for Kyuss.

They formed in 1987 as Sons of Kyuss, and released an EP [[SelfTitledAlbum under that name]] in 1990 before shortening their name to "Kyuss". (Kyuss is an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyuss_(Greyhawk) evil demigod of worms and corruption]] from the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' game, and Son of Kyuss was an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_Kyuss undead monster]] described in the 1st Edition D&D Fiend Folio.) Over the next few years, the band released four full-length albums before splitting up in 1995. Their only constant members were vocalist John Garcia (known for his very recognisable voice, which is often said to be synonymous with the genre) and guitarist Josh Homme, who you already know of.

* Nick Oliveri, guitar (1987-1988), bass (1991-1992) [he has also been in QueensOfTheStoneAge; he's the shirtless bald guy in QOTSA's video for "No One Knows" and the shirtless long-haired dude in the video for Kyuss' "Thong Song"]

* CreativeDifferences: Bjork left the band because he and Homme began clashing over songwriting, and Homme had started refusing to play on his songs.
* CreatorBreakdown: After they disbanded, Josh apparently had one.



* NamesTheSame: What does Brant's family name remind you of?...
** "Thong Song" isn't about ladies' undergarments. It's about a type of sandals popular in the Palm Desert.



* TheRedStapler: Josh's Ovation GP guitar.
** Basically, some fans instantly went to eBay when they discovered what he was playing and managed to hike the prices of a guitar that was fairly unpopular up to insane heights. Now you're lucky if GP aficionados don't tear you apart for wanting "Josh Homme's guitar."
