Black Mountain is an indie-rock band led by Stephen McBean. The band is closely influenced by many past artists, and criticisms often walk the line between praising adept imitation and blasting blatant re-use of old ideas. The band is a psychedelic amalgamation of Neil Young and Buffalo Springfield, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, the Velvet Underground, and Black Sabbath.

Leader Stephen McBean also heads another similarly-named band, Pink Mountaintops, who are the more experimental side of McBean's musical abilities. Black Mountain is the front line band for Black Mountain Army, the record label. By day, McBean works in a needle-exchange facility for drug addicts, near Vancouver's infamous Main & Hastings intersection, widely considered to be the heroin capital of Canada, if not North America. The name "Black Mountain" is a reference to a large pile of marijuana.

Black Mountain, which hails from Vancouver, has released one self-titled LP; an EP titled 'Druganaut' (coming after this post) was released in October, 2004. 'Destroyer' was released in Fall 2004.
