(Crust War Records)
Most of the more well known Japanese Hardcore bands come from the bigger cities of japan like tokyo/osaka/nagoya, but sometimes you see a great band coming out from very countryside and that’s the case with SLUDGE. SLUDGE comes from kinan/wakayama in southwestern japan and it is always fascinating to see such an impressive band coming out from such a rural and remote area. After several years of unknown activities the band released a demo cdr and sold it to a few japanese record shops that was the start it all. Everyone who got the demo was totally blown away. Crust war had a chance to meet the members and asked if they wanted to release something and this is the result. 10 tracks of total archaic rawness and destructive mayhem played in the traditional japanese Hardcore style with slightly crust and metal influences. Fans of GISM, ZOUO, GHOUL, EFFIGY, DEMOLITION shouldn't miss this!
