Blues for the Red Sun is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Kyuss, released in 1992. While the album received mainly favorable reviews, it fared poorly commercially, selling only 39,000 units. It has since become a very influential album within the stoner rock genre.
Blues for the Red Sun was the last Kyuss album to feature founding bassist Nick Oliveri, who was replaced by Scott Reeder shortly after recording had been completed. Reeder had previously played with The Obsessed.
Famous quotes containing the word red:
“The sable presbyters approach
The avenue of penitence;
The young are red and pustular
Clutching piaculative pence.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
