Fudge Tunnel

Fudge Tunnel's sludgy, grungy metal reminded some of early Godflesh minus the industrial influences, while others likened them to sludgecore bands like Eyehategod and others still likened them to the Seattle grunge sound of the day, though they came at it from a different angle. Hate Songs In E Minor is where the band is at its sludgiest (and arguably best), with the later material gradually cleaning things up a bit. By the time of their last album leader Alex Newport had become disillusioned with the public perception of the band (particularly the Seattle references), opting to spend time with his side project Nailbomb before the band came to a close around 1995, following the release of the odds-and-ends compilation In A Word. After an absence from the recording scene (during which time he served as a producer for a number of bands), Newport has recently returned in a new band, Theory Of Ruin.
