I will admit that before hearing this album, the only time I heard about slugs in my music was listening to Biggie Smalls and the like. However Slugdge is here to change that, and don't let the gooey gastropods they sing about fool you - these guys are the real deal.

Now, right from the start, I'll get to what makes Born of Slime work. I imagine most people's reactions to a blackened sludgy death metal album thematically centered around slugs would be a laugh - which is reasonable. What makes it work and gives the album a more genuine feel is the fact that it is so musically sound. Basically, Slugdge's sound is driven by dirty and thick guitar lines, backed by equally weighty drumming with a mixture of raspier black/death style vocals and cleaner vocal parts. The songwriting is quite dynamic and every song goes somewhere without getting boring, and the riffs have enough melody to them to keep the album engaging. On top of the songs being written well, the combination of genres presented here works well and is enough to keep the album fresh. It is an imaginative and fun (never thought you would hear that word in reference to blackened death metal, did you?) journey through a world besieged by carnivorous slugs.

What would get if you made Dragged Into Sunlight a bit less serious, a tad more melodic and had them sing about slugs? You'd get Slugdge of course. Worship the slime!

It's been quite a while since I liked an album so much that I made a conscious effort to learn the lyrics.

That's a 10 in my book.

I'll never understand the fixation with slugs but I goddamn don't have to. Kick ass album all the way through, and the low humming harmonizing thing they do throughout the album makes me like slugs a little.
