Sloth Herder are a band from Maryland that plays a blackened form of sludge mixed with grindcore and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "Sluggard".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with little to no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black metal, sludge, and grindcore together to create a sound of their own and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all high pitched screams that combine black metal, grind and sludge together, while the lyrics cover hateful and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Sloth Herder are a very great sounding hybrid of black metal, sludge and grindcore and if you are a f an of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blown" and "WB". RECOMMENDED BUY.
