|Sloth once again leaves the doom scene and embarks on a short experimental journey. This time it's a grooving mixture of hardcore and noise. Still the typical sound of Sloth is as unmistakable as it always has been. |
Despite the grooving, and sometimes even slightly psychedelic music, the lyrics hold on firmly to a rather pissed off mood. A strong testament to the fact that hardcore is the most negative face of punk music.
Ofhisownhand is a band that plays quite similar music to what Sloth offers on this split. One of their tracks is even slightly doomy. But on the other hand if you didn't know that this was a split, and the vocalist hadn't been very different, you could easily mistake this to be the product of only one band.
Only 100 of these 7" were ever produced, but this isn't one of the important releases in Sloth's discography. Thus it's not so bad and the fans of grooving hardcore would still enjoy it if they manage to get their hands on it.
