While I’ve mentioned a few bands who give away their music for free, not most of all said bands that do so are well worth it. Most of them are much like a one night stand, just too ephemeral to give a second thought. But this particular band, Slugdge, seems anything but tasteless. Although as their name would suggest, they play a deeply multiple genre inflected brand of sludge, laced with so much dark humor that it would at the least elicit a bending of the lips.
Against the backdrop of something as pretentious as the taking over of the world by a band of evil slugs, this 2 man English band rolls out riffs that can effectively floor you. And yet it might leave you with a good laugh as the lyrics come in. With song titles such ‘Eyehatesalt’ and ‘Pod Hates Us All’ you’d probably get where this pun laced, dark humor is going. So much fun without sacrificing anything on the musicality and it all comes free of cost.
