Sloth are a solo project from the United Kingdom that plays sludge metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 album "Slow As Shit" which will be released on September 28th.
Distorted sounding drones start off the album and after the intro drum beats and heavy guitar riffs start becoming a huge part of the recording along with some shoegaze sounds and melodic post metal style leads and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a good portion of t he tracks are very long and epic in length.
Elements of stoner, sludge and doom metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and most of the tracks stick to an instrumental direction while some tracks do bring in a small amount of clean playing and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can be heard as well as a small use of screams on a couple of songs that have a black metal influence to them and the whole album remains true to a very slow musical direction while the last track does bring in elements of electronic music.
Sloth plays a style of sludge metal that is mostly instrumental but also brings in post rock and shoegaze influences along with a touch of black metal to create something very original and the production also sounds very professional for being a self released recording while lyrics when they are utilized cover nature and pot smoking themes.
In my opinion Sloth are a very great sounding post sludge metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Green Sunrise" and "Nothing But Leaves". 8 out of 10.
