Bands You Should Know: Sloth
  |  @   |  

Sloths are mammals known for moving at a very slow pace. Therefore, it is only fitting that the new one-man stoner/doom/sludge metal project of English musician Blake Caverly should share the same moniker. Even more appropriate is the title of Sloth‘s debut record, Slow As Shit.

This crushingly heavy project could be compared to the likes of genre giants Pallbearer, Bongripper, and Boris; it shares the same sort of down tuned, down tempo aesthetics that mark those iconic band’s sounds. But, lest you think that Sloth is just knocking off that which has come before, you should know that there is also a heaping helping of prog rock leanings afoot here as well. The album is largely instrumental but does feature guest vocals from Mikey ‘Churchburner’ Gascoyne of Valravn on the excellent track “Nothing But Leaves.”

Sloth is a band better heard than talked about though and, fortunately, you can check out Slow As Shit for free right now. The album is currently streaming in its entirety over here below, via PureGrainAudio. Check it out if you are an open minded fan of adventurous stoner doom music and if you dig what you’re hearing, the album will be available on September 28th though their Bandcamp page.
