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.
01. Wrathful Deities 02. Figures Of Chained Spirits 03. Curse Seeping Through Flesh 04. Gateways To The Cemetery Of Being 05. Poisoned Tongue 06. Spirit Of Noxious Miasmas 07. Adorned & Iridescent 08. Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin
I find them decent at best. Lots of better bands from the style.
Those tracks were more than just decent for me but I cannot refute your statement about the existence of loads of better bands. Bands in this style which I am familiar with could be counted on the fingers and I happened to check them just very recently
Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, Diocletian, Corpsessed, Temple Nightside, Ignivomous, Antediluvian, Vorum (earlier stuff), Witchrist, Hellvetron, Muknal, Embrace of Thorns, Dead Congregation, to name a few off the top of my head. All vaguely from the same area of death metal. Some more doomy, others a bit black etc.
Have a look through here and this thread. Lots of similar stuff there.
