Top-tier stoner/doom metal band Weed Is Weed has signed a world-wide deal with Ripple Music for the release of their full-length album, "Blunt Force Trauma." Check out some of the track previews for this upcoming album in the form of four songs on the band's reverbnation page.

Metal Koaz: Sherm, you've been a fixture in the Maryland/DC Doom scene from the start, and have shared the stage with everyone from Wino and Hank III to SOURVEIN and just recently CLUTCH.
