VARIOUS ARTISTS  Crushers Killers Destroyers II  CD   (Shifty)   9.98
Crushers Killers Destroyers II IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE FOR ORDER

The second installment in Shifty Record's Crushers Killers Destroyers series, this full length compilation CD features 8 of the best bands in the underground sludgecore movement, with 1-5 exclusive tracks from each. Every band has their own unique take on slow, bruising, filthy sludgecore, keeping the compilation interesting throughout without ever relenting from battering-ram heaviness. HEADACHE starts off with 3 tracks of grueling pounding sludge, with dueling vocals screaming "Die!", barbiturate references, loud production, and a GRIEF meets KARP sense of bottom heavy dynamics. WEEDEATER give us 2 new tracks, with Dixie Dave's lung-scraping vocals snarling over some killer vile riffs, and "Long Gone" also has Muleboy from BONGZILLA guesting on vocals. Awesome. FISTULA follow up with a single blast of headcaving heaviness, like a meaner, jailbound sibling to the MELVINS' "Boris". KING TRAVOLTA rip through a whopping 5 tracks of fierce doomcrust that includes a hilarious stab at QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE. CRUEVO appear with a posthumous track, "Black Maria", that again displays the awesome sludgerock these guys possessed while they were around. Another eulogy appears in the form of 2 tracks from defunct bass terrorists TUSKS OF BLOOD, sounding more than ever like MAN IS THE BASTARD on one hell of a bad trip, dual-bass buzz thud smacking against your ribs painfully. Madrid's MOHO bring some depth and "progression" to the comp, with 3 tracks of swinging, snarling, superdope sludgerock that picks up the pace with a hellish, undead version of US Southern Rock. Some seriously fist-raising shit. SLOTH finishes off the comp with a track called "Sloth Loves Floor", and yes...it's an uncanny interpretation of FLOOR's patented bomb-string sludge via their song "Lolita", but more fucked and drunk and downtuned than the original. Sick. Altogether, and amazing collection of destructive, low end crush.
