If you like your sludge nautically named, if you, like me, rather prefer your sludge to be on the melodic side, and take Giant Squid as a somewhat liberal reference, then Helms Alee is for you.

Listen to their new album over at Bandcamp.

Someone on here recommended this to me earlier in the year, but at that point they weren't yet on the site. Great stuff, indeed, and pretty bomb ass album art too

So you're not actually a bearded shaman opening his third eye through music?

This album rocks, their Sludge/Stoner sound really stands out among the bands that play the same thing. Also, female drummers can be amazing. :>

Probably me, as it's a Sargent House release and I follow them like a lost puppy. This is the owner, Cathy's favourite release, and I can see why. Great stuff.

I don't get it. Heavy but too simple. Nice production but too boring. Seems like unrealized potential at this point.

I get what you mean. The ideas could have been developed further. Seriously... I was getting into such a mental groove when listening to the last track and before I knew it, the album ended so abruptly >.>

I wish it was more nautical-based instead of having those retarded song titles.

If you stretch your imagination most of those could be nautical based (well, Pinniped could only be sea-based) aside from maybe the first two tracks.
