A whoï¿½s who of contemporary, grisly sludgecore. 80 minutes of extreme nihilistic sludge and blackened doom. SOULPREACHER starts off with 2 tracks of surprisingly melodic and psychedelic sludge that winds down into monstrous crushing dirge destruction, with excellent contrasting clean/witch vocals. FISTULA demolish 2 tracks of stonerized sludge mastery with more of their patented battle riffs that will glue themselves to yer skull for days. Hate sludge legends GRIEF emerge into the blackness with 2 songs of energetic, suicidal doomcore. Excellent! Belgian psyche-sludgelords. THEE PLAGUE OF GENTLEMEN present an epic, unnerving tracks "Your Love Is King (of the dead) Part 2 & 3", that will nail you to the floor with its proggy tempos and riff changes and slow and low riff thuggery. NY sludge veterans return with "Nod", a bludgeoning, super-downtuned space doom anthem. And from the Uk hails the mighty RAMESSES, featuring the former rhythm section of ELECTRIC WIZARD - "Black Domina" is loaded down with noisy, infectious, sludgy riffs, as crushing as youï¿½d expect from this skilled battery team. And fellow UK doomsters MOSS cap this nuclear blast off with "Beyond Despair", an oozing epic of sledgehammer distorted dronery and hopeless witch vocals and an excellent low-fidelity skin peeling attack that will have you reaching for the Nyquil in no time. A crucial collection of modern tarpit violence and droneriff despair, haunted by the ghosts of WINTER, HELLHAMMER, and AUTOPSY.
