In the sludge/stoner sub-genre, the music is represented by two separate, yet equally important groups: the slow, more ambient types that lay down some good, smokey atmosphere, and the groove oriented bands that sound like rock n roll drowning in it's own filth. Death Valley Driver fit in with this latter group amongst the likes of Down and Orange Goblin...And dare I say this band gives those seasoned veterans a good run for their money?

Full of groove, and grimy as all hell. It's everything sludge needs to be. I could easily rant about what a punch this album delivers, but it's definitely something that you need to hear for yourself.

...I'm going to go take a shower now.
