04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong

This is sounding a lot better than what I remember these guys sounded like.
Or perhaps i'm becoming too open minded...
Really? I haven't heard this but they were already great.
Well I only listened to that album with a toilet bowl on the cover before, and i remember thinking that it sounded somewhat like mr bungle which is kind of 5 or 6 on my rankings from 1 to 10.
But that's been a long time ago... More than 6 years i believe
This starts very weakly but the starting from track 6 everything gets awesome. Really love the sinister vocals on the final track (and some other ones). Not something very novel for DFD but I cant really complain considering the originality of this band.
