We are the last...


Band: Meadows
Album: EP
Origin: Great Britain (Suffolk)
Genre: Sludge, Punk
Year: 2011

First of all, a small introduction to Meadows. They formed out of the ashes of various stoner rock and doom bands and have been described as 'sludge/grind/doom for fans of Napalm Death, Eyehategod, Grief and Converge.'

Now let's talk music. All four tracks on this release (recorded 'in a dingy, dirty factory in the heart of rural suffolk') seem to follow the same (excellent) recipe: take some crusty punk riffs, add some oppressive sludge riffs, throw in some roaring vocals and finish it with some feedback. It's really awesome stuff, and recommended to anybody who likes heavy music. Maybe even more important to add is that Meadows brings it with a groove which proves to me that they are probably a killer live band. I can honestly say that I hope to see and hear more by Meadows in the future.

You can buy this release on bandcamp, where they also offer it as a free download (in six different formats) with pictures of the physical product (a beautifully packaged DIY release). Enjoy!

Facebook (supposedly very popular these days)
