Dead Southern Bishop - Hymns Of Malice and Discontent

Band request from Georgia, USA.

Dead Southern Bishop play thick, heavy sludge.

It ain't pretty.

But it is slow and bleak.

It is a rough as fuck.

And sometimes that's all I want.

  1. I almost dig this, but that guitar tone is the worst. It suffers from Dave Chandler Syndrome: the riffs could be absolutely amazing but it just sounds like garbage. Overall, it's not bad, but it ain't great either. Maybe it's a grower?

  2. I have to admit to being pretty new to the world of sludge. I know my Eyehategod to some of the newer stuff that almost has post-metal/stoner elements thrown in but am fumbling in the dark when it comes to accurate descriptions. All I can write is what I hear. The band had a hardcore edge that I liked. Thanks for at least giving it a listen!

    Reading your last post on A Lot Of - sometimes I feel that this blog has changed from over the last couple of months due to the file crackdown - I am still going but not to the detriment of my other interests.
