Keep It Sludgy...

Boar Worship - Boar Worship EP (2015)


In case you couldn't guess from the cover art, Boar Worship's newest EP is a shot of tarry sludge, with four tracks of tortured strings, slow beats, and guttural vocals to coat your ears with dangerous stickiness.  Helpfully, the songs are simply titled "one", "two", "three", and "four", so as long as you don't lose consciousness in the middle of the EP, it's easy to recall which particular piece of grimy reverb caught your ear.  Long and gnarled stretches of bass underscore most of the music, with the vocals mixed to match a muffled distance, and while the drummer doesn't have much opportunity to stand out, the percussion's persistence does an important job in keeping things somewhat structured as they gradually dissolve.  Richly dirty and well-schooled in how to handle massive buzz, this is one for those who want amp worship and down-tuned venom in equal measure.
