Yanomamo - Ativan And Whiskey (2014)
With their slogan of "SLUDGE RIDDEN DOOM", it's not too difficult to guess the musical inclinations of Australian outfit Yanomamo. With their latest single, following up on two releases from earlier this year, the group continues to make a name for itself in the dirty field of sludgy doom. Good guitar tonality, goosebumps-inducing drum-work, and some mean bass come together in a crunchy collision of crustiness, while the vocalist's growl-howl provides a grim gilding. Bolstered by a well-chosen audio sample, the song moves into more aggressive grooves in its latter half, picking up the energy and letting the group show off another side of their talents, finishing with a decisive bang. It's a decent bit of chew for your ears, so tune into Yanomamo's output if you've been hungering for some sludge with real bite to it.
