Thread: SLUDGE-DOOM rec's, please.......

  1. #1

    SLUDGE-DOOM rec's, please.......

    I've been exploring this for a while now, and tend to gravitate towards the pretty noisy stuff: especially RWAKE and later INDIAN. But I also dig SLEEP, TORCHE, HORN OF THE RHINO, MIDDIAN, YOB, NEUROSIS, FLOOR, ZOZOBRA, ROSETTA etc.

    What are some other more nasty, dark, gritty, hellish ones ? Please no Stoner Rock, Black Metal or Funeral Doom - they just put me to sleep.

    Thanks in advance............

    Good genre to explore!

    You've listed Neurosis and not Isis, so that is my first recommendation. Along with them I'd say...

    Cult of Luna - A bit more Sludge than Doom.
    The Ocean - On the Atmospheric Black Metal side, but often grouped with these bands. Definitely worth exploring regardless.
    Minsk - Start with Ritual Fires of Abandonment
    Buried Inside
    Downfall of Gaia - Another with hints of Black Metal
    Irepress - Their Sol Eye Sea release is one of my favorites!


    Have fun!

    So, on the Sludge spectrum you are looking for music closer to the Hardcore/Grind, Hard Rock side rather than the Atmospheric side. Not sure I can offer much as you'll be treading a fine line between Stoner and Sludge. Maybe look for bands with a Crusty Sludge sound, more Punk.

    Fall of Efrafa maybe?

    Not sure if I have much to offer here (Old Man Gloom maybe?), but I'm sure as hell sticking around to see what gets suggested

    There's so many doom subgenre's these days I find it hard to keep up (or even tell the difference ) but these are some of my faves that might fit the bill for you...

    Ahab - The Call of the Wretched Sea
    Catacombs - In the Depths of R'Lyeh
    Cephalic Carnage - The Halls of Amenti
    Warhorse - As Heaven Turns to Ash
    Electric Wizard - Dopethrone (though this is probably considered stoner metal)

    Doom on!
    I'm using the chicken to measure it...

    Sure, of course. I also enjoy Diamanda Galas and Mira Calix; hell, I'd bet outside these walls, more than a few folks would listen to the Cardiacs and make a few less-than-kind comparisons to the Muppets too ...its music with some extreme/pushy edges. Underneath the surface (i.e. past the vox), there's some astoundingly interesting music happening. Not to beat a dead, scorched-in-the-fires-of-the-earth horse yet again, but Gaza's "I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die" is damned-near dizzying in terms of the musicality happening. It's fierce and challenging music.

    It's not for everyone. But, it's definitely good times for some of us

    Just my IMHO, of course

    Ya, know...after all these years on the internet, we're old men by now, and hence don't need to stand on ceremony. I'd call you a a girlie-man, if I thought it might make a difference..... But it wouldn't, would it ? (All in jest, mind you - I respect my ELDERS, and you are just a wee bit older than dirt than I am ! )

    Yes, some of us take this seriously, Robt. It is the new sense of "progression". ART needn't be comfortable. Sorry to sense that you won't go there with us "youngsters at heart" !

    Here's a great track by HORN OF THE RHINO that you will despise. I will respect you, nonetheless, man, . It sort of KILLS King Crimson and Black Sabbath, by a mile, and is relevant.) All in good fun, brother - Seriously, no disrespect intended !!!

    Yo PP: might be off-target on this, but what about The Body? Christs/Redeemers is a pretty fun little record, great for dinner with the parents...

    if it eases your pain, I also like Martin Denny and Astrud Gilberto

  18. #18
    Oh, I LOVE Martin Denny, too. And I like acousmatic music, Baroque Opera and Cuntry Vestern. Why is it that we should listen to, "The Goat Licks Puke On First Street", forever and a day ?

    Thanks for the rex, men. Appreciated !

    Now that is a great recommendation!!

    Yes. Dee-Kay said it well by indicating this music is as progressive as it gets these days. FWIW, count me as a huge Martin Denny, Lex Baxter, Mel Torme fan too.

    Yes, the Hark tracks are a little more interesting musically, they don't just plod along with a thumpa-thumpa beat. So much of this uber-metal stuff is uber-braindead musically.

    In my humble opinion however Hark could have been immeasurably improved by replacing the stereotyped "vocals" with something unexpected. Flute perhaps, or Minimoog.

    But then the would no longer be sludge, but rather watered down lemonade.


    Dee-Kay, have you listened till Baroness and Kvelertak?
