HEAVY BABY SEA SLUGS – Teenage Graveyard Party EP (2017)


Teenage Graveyard Party EP
(Heavy Baby Records / 2017)

HEAVY BABY SEA SLUGS! That’s some mouthful of a name if you ever heard one, don’t you agree? It sounds nasty, dirty and slimy. Believe me or not, it fits like a glove to the kind of music these Texans bring to the table. Their press-release mentions something about a new genre I’ve never heard before, Avant-Sludge Punk, but the whole thing actually makes sense!

The whole fuck-it attitude these guys carry captures itself in these four songs and we can rapidly go from a fast sludgy-sounded riff to a more paced, slow and heavy hitting breakdown, delivering not only the grime but also the rage, spit and snot.

From ‘King Midas of Shit’ to ‘Zero One’, this EP showcases some of the different mindsets you can get through the whole HEAVY BABY SEA SLUGS experience. Just imagine if Bad Brains, Poison Idea and Electric Wizard had a baby together. This is it! 8/10 [RM]

Recorded at their home studio in Tampa, “Obituary” features death metal 10 tracks showcasing an historic 30-year career.

SUNLIGHT’S BANE release debut album

Blackened Grinders SUNLIGHT’S BANE will release their debut album, “The Blackest Volume: Like All the Earth Was Buried”, on February 17th, via Innerstrength Records.

The band formerly known as TRAITOR, has crafted a sound so inherently dark and repulsive that even the sunlight will withdraw and run from it! Believe me. I’ve heard the beast.

The band is streaming a new song and had this to say about it:

It’s a song not only about the oppression of people, but the worship of oppression and violence from a controlling establishment or force. It is about not only subservience to control, but the attitude of pleasure in it, those individuals who will kiss the boot stomping into their face and apologize for being in its way while convincing themselves this is the way things have always been and will always be.

DETERIOROT debut album re-issued on Xtreem Music

American Death Metal band DETERIOROT will have their classic debut album from 2001, “In Ancient Beliefs”, re-issued on CD format through Xtreem Music with remastered sound and new cover artwork by Juanjo Castellano.

Formed back in 1990 in New Jersey and later relocated in North Carolina, DETERIOROT is one of the pioneers of the heaviest and darkest US Death Metal alongside with INCANTATION.

“In Ancient Beliefs” was the band’s debut after a serie of demos and EP during the 90’s and now it sees a proper re-issue to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the album with a new cover artwork and new remastering. Release date will be November 20th.
