Grotesquely unpleasant sludge/doom, hailing from somewhere in Virginia. The lolloping gait, weighty riffs and gurgling vocals hearken back to Graves At Sea or Weedeater, but these elements are mixed in with the leaden atonality of Burning Witch and occasional tricksier moments that bring to mind the warped landscapes painted by Confessor. Things need a bit of work to be mind-alteringly powerful, but as a starting point this is certainly a step in the right direction for a band with talent, chops and a definite knack for all things punishing.
