Greetings,

i saw Fu Manchu are Blacklisted, They have always been a tad more stoner metal than rock in my opinion.

They are blacklisted, but without a reason given, therefore it's pretty old. Can you provide us with the FULL release that you'd base a submission on (speaking their most metal one)?

Fu manchu are one of those borderline bands, the metalness in their albums varies.

I would point to 'No One Rides Free - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViacJVSfKJM' in terms the 'most metal' but then again it varies, with tracks like 'Ojo Rojo' & 'Superbird' featuring straight forward crushing riffs but then you get tracks like 'Mega bumbers' & 'Shine It On' which are a bit too bouncy. It's got that Black Sabbath/Deep Purple riffage, But to be honest it does just barely qualify.

If you ask me, they're really a Desert Rock / Stoner Rock band, but if the mods wish to humor them, these are their heaviest:
No One Rides for Free
We Must Obey
Signs of Infinite Power
Gigantoid
Clone of the Universe
California Crossing
King of the Road

Agree, it's just stoner ROCK. Their heaviest is the first one, and it's Stoner/Desert Rock for the most part.
Songs like may Boogie Van may contain one or two doomy/stoner/proto metal riffs just to go straight into rock on the same song or the next.
You'll find the same formula (more-or-less) on the borderline songs they may have.
Overall, they don't embrace metal that much, and it's pretty easy to tell by the rhythm structure of their songs (imo).

Yeah. Nothing more to say here. I agree.
