Coat - Swamp (2013)

You love sludge, rough and raw sludge, not half-mainstream one? Me too. And this band, from Minsk, in Belarus, is what I love in sludge. Sure it's no revolutionary, but after listening to a whole bunch of boring new releases, suddenly you feel you got something to lean on with such a band. Don't be misguided by the drawing on the cover sleeve, it's no psyche-stoner but pure (impure is a more appropriate word) sludge with feet deep down in muddy clay. Proud descendants of EyeHateGod, with a more punk (slow punk don't misunderstand me) approach, sometimes like Drunk With Gun (but who remember this band?). And moreover there's something of true despair in it, and less of the dope and alcohol trip of these great ancients. Hope I can help them to find their audience here (but it's doom and stoner community here that brought them to my attention). Go here to listen and buy.
