A concept band that plays proggy sludge metal about slugs. How novel. And like most novel things, I’m all about checking stuff like that out. What else I’m all about, when a record/band with a novel concept turns out to be freaking great and flat-out kicks some metal ass. Packed with elephantine riffs, slimy solos, viscous rhythms, and pissed off vocals this record is turning out to be one of the more interesting, varied, and engaging records I’ve heard this year. At times it sounds like Revocation played through a pool of sludge, at others kind of a blackened Mastodon; always kicking ass. Oh, and those song names and lyrics, genius!
If you’re hankering for something cool to listen to, do yourself a favor and give Gastronomicon a spin, I promise you won’t be dissappointed. The record is also ‘pay what you want’ if you happen to be on a budget (though, even if you’re poor as dirt, you’ll be cool enough to toss the band a few bucks instead of nothing, right? Right!?). Enjoy some Slugdge 🙂 Peace Love and Metal!!!!!
