Indian's Guiltless is an absolutely horrible and horrifying release. It is relentless, vile, and abrasive. The Chicago quintet abuse their instruments to churn forth a 40 minute platter of hateful sludge-doom guaranteed to ruin your day.

Pounding riffs and crushing mixed with various psychedelic elements to create a harrowing sonic experience that puts one on edge. Mostly powerful, mid-slow pace sludgy riffs, with the occasional foot-on-the-gas and bass-pedal-to-the-metal bars. Not to worry. The fast bit is every bit as vile as the slow. As if the assault isn't harsh enough, enter the vocals. Wow. Hate-filled misanthropic screeches and shouts really push this whole thing over the top. It's almost too much.

Guiltless is a wretched platter of doomed sludge (or sludged doom?) with punishing riffs, pounding drums and absolutely vile, hate-filled screeches. This is an ugly album. Enjoy.

Holy shit this album is FILTHY! Honestly most people will take two seconds to realize just how intense this is before shitting their pants and running away in fear. It's well-executed droning sludge/doom with a perfectly balanced chaos and purpose. The hazy atmospheric sections make the crushing riffs that much more blatant.

I'd recommend this to fans of Bongripper, Electric Wizard, Weedeater, etc.

Between this one and Coffinworm's When All Become None, I think I'm developping a taste for hateful sludge.

Oh fuck this is awesome, it's something between Cofinworm, Eyehategod, and Lord Mantis.

Didn't know about that, damn.

PS: my third spin now, it started to grow more on me.

Finally got around this again and I agree that it's better than their (very good) recent one.

If I were to differentiate this one from the album that comes after, I'd say this one is slightly more melodious and has a touch of sorrow. The next album is much more angry. Both are great and the difference makes them equally worthy of your time.

That's a pretty posh way of saying 'melodic'
