Sludge–søndag med Mutoid Man og Celeste

CELESTE

Af Adam Thorsmark

To nye sludge-albums lurer faretruende ude i horisonten. Og på sådan en kold november-søndag er det rigtigt godt med et hårdt soundtrack.

First up: Mutoid Man. Sanger og guitarist Steve Brodsky fra alt/prog/space-metal-kongerne i Cave In og trommeslager Ben Koller fra Converge har slået pjalterne sammen, og ovenpå sidstnævntes mesterlige plade fra sidste år, ’All We Love We Leave Behind’, er det kærkomment også at høre Brodsky tilbage på rette spor efter en række sparsomme og ujævne udgivelser både i og udenfor Cave In. Resultatet af Brodskys melodiske sans og killer-riffs og Kollers antiluftskyts-trommer er en optimistisk stonerrock-groovende, fist-in-air sludge-banger.

Mixtape: New Danish Sound

Passive/Aggressive proudly presents a selection the best new Danish sounds of what, we consider, is the finest, most heartfelt and curious music in this rotten kingdom. The blog’s aim is to change the way people talks and especially writes about music in Denmark, and to liberate the classic view on aesthetics in music, to democratize the distribution of music, and really to offer a suitable and valuable-though-profitless alternative platform to artists, that takes other routes and go beyond the Danish media system of music. In every modern conception of music listening, everyone is able to enjoy – what could be labeled as; difficult music. So how do we, the people, make this visible and distribute it? Læs resten
