    I haven't listened to much Stoner metal but I feel like I could get into it.

    Also something faster and more melodic than typical stoner metal would probably be a good way to get me into the genre.

    Electric Wizard - Dopethrone

    While not strictly Stoner Metal... Electric Wizard play some superb stoner/doom metal.

    I second all Kyuss recs and throw Welcome to Sky Valley in there too. By the looks of it you just need to listen to back catalogs of previous listed bands. Maybe check out Stash by Bongzilla (name says it all I suppose)

    I second this, great album.

    Also, kinda similar to that, check out Zoroaster - Voice of Saturn

    Stoner Witch by the Melvins is a must-have as well.

    though they detest the term "stoner", Church of Misery is hazy and groovy as fuck with an unhealthy interest in serial killers.

    haha, I think that's the point. any sloppiness only adds to the rawness of their music, imo.

    Isis is post-metal. Though I don't follow all these little genre differences so maybe they're the same. I can barely tell the difference between death and grind sometimes. But Isis is one of my favorite bands of all time so yea check em out anyway.
