Mudbath - Red Desert Orgy (2012)





















With Huata (here), we (I mean France) have one of the greatest doom band of the planet, with Mudbath, we have one of the greatest sludge band. From Avignon (the city where all the so-called theatre artists go in summer to bore to death the city of popes), they seem to come in straight line from Louisiana, a much happier place for sludge lovers. What can I say except that there's in this music heavy and dirty as a piece of lead rolled in shit, everything I like since it's onset in 1989 (and I'm old enough to have seen its birth). It's brutal and extreme but, and this is what I appreciate, slow and thick enough to bath in it and feel it better. In other words, this music is a kind of aural fangotherapy. They were apparently at the Yellfest and will be touring in November so don't miss them. If they are half as good on stage than on this LP, it will be sure a nice moment of mind distraction and ear destruction. And a band who calls a "song" "Smell Like Teen Cunt" can't be bad. Go and buy it (give your price) here.
