Buzzherd – On Sinking Ships… Rats Drown


Buzzherd – On Sinking Ships… Rats Drown
Dullest Records/Southern Cross – 2013
Sludge, Metal, Thrash
Rated: ***

The five lovely freaks from the American formation Buzzherd have definitely delivered something rough and wicked with their six-track album On Sinking Ships… Rats Drown. Combining thrash metal, with sludge, doom, punk and stoner to create something highly crusty and grimy. It definitely is one of the filthiest records to cross our path in the beginning of this foul year of our lord 2014. They indeed have some damn fine ability to punch you in the stomach with a club hammer full of paranoia, fear and loathing. Their tracks are laced with poison and the moving drums; hunkered down on some moments and full on blasting the next have you hopping around as if you were walking on fire. The same goes for the guitars who are both cruel and paradoxically benevolent. It has you weary for what comes next but lusting after it nonetheless. So turn the music up! My heart feels like an alligator!
