Laguna is a stoner rock band founded in 2018 in Barcelona from the ashes of Cheap Cigarettes, formed by Joan (guitar, vocals), Pekiss (drums), Javi (guitar) and Pol (bass, backing vocals).
On their first release »Vol. I« they present their own sound, powerful and direct, which draws on influences as diverse as Motörhead, Queens Of The Stone Age or Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. In 2019 they published »Vol. II«, the second part of their first EP that, although it embraces more progressive sounds, maintains the sound line of their debut recordings.
Already in 2020, in the midst of confinement, they launched their triology »Dogma«. A three-part EP in which they experiment with darker themes, with influences from doom metal and alternative metal.
Debut full-length album »Of Men And Myths« was recorded at Akrasonic Studio by Joan, Pol and Pekiss. Singles »Of Men And Myths, Pt. I« and »God In The Machine« led the way for the release on September 30, 2023.

“Laguna are amazing prog-tinged darkened alternative stoner rock/doom band.” — Doom Heart
“Laguna easily cross boundaries of genre and style and present a vibrant and gloomy combination of stoner rock, doom metal and alternative metal. The way they mix these genres and the dynamic movement they display in this super dark theme is just incomparable and beautiful.” — Mango Wave
