Meth Drinker – “Meth Drinker” (Always Never Fun Records, 2011)

a0343077739_16I’ve been reading a bunch of hype about these New Zealanders on the ‘ol interwebs, so I had to check them out. What a treat! These boys are not reinventing the wheel, but their brand of vile sludge is so filthy, so slow, and so fucking wicked.

It reminds me of the slower tempoed parts of EYEHATEGOD, or the long-drawn out sludge of GRIEF. Naturally, it tends to drag on, but as is the case with this genre. And personally, I have no qualms with that. It only adds to the record’s miserable, sluggish atmosphere.

Believe the hype, this record kicks ass. I’d expect these boys to get picked up by a bigger label very soon.
