GRANDMOTHER ~ Grandmother (2014)
Known only by those who aren't afraid to lurk in the areas of metal most fear to inhabit, Grandmother is an Australian band that released a couple of demo's before unleashing this heaving monstrosity of an EP upon humanity. There is minimal information about Grandmother, in fact, I don't even know if the band still survives.
A seething morass of hate swimming in a tide of churning doom, making your skin crawl and spine tingle with the heviosity of it all. Encrusted sludge clings to drone seeping from impenetrable riffs, all joy swiped away by a vile hand leaving you wallowing in misery.
If ever doom/sludge became an entity capable of decimating all life on Earth, then Grandmother is Patient Zero, a pariah that should walk before the lepers bell.
