Unearthly Trance

These New Yorkers have been plying their trade since 2000, with a string of albums and several splits (not listed here) to their credit. The term "drone" is sometimes mentioned when describing this band, but to these ears it's more of a secondary influence, as the style here embodies sludge metal to a T -- slow, angry doom with tortured hardcore-ish vocals. The pace rarely quickens and the mood seldom approaches anything upbeat, and that's how sludge metallists like it.
