Clamfight – III

Clamfight – III
Argonauta – 2018
Rock, Metal, Sludge, Stoner
Rated: *****

They’ve been out there for a while now. Releasing their debut record Volume.1 back in 2010. Their second album titled I Versus The Glacier followed three years later. And now, five years after that seminal record the four horsemen of Clamfight release the third. Simply titled III, the darkness shines bright with amazing melodies and magical atmospheres. Leaning towards a progressive take on everything heavy, the five tracks on this record waft by and leave an odor of pure excellence. The intense sludgy and filthy metal is still there. But Clamfight has turned into something much more on this record. There are ominous almost ambient grooves here, as if a massive storm is about to hit. There are moments of droning thunder, where the blizzard is all around you. And there are moments of pure beauty, a ray of guitar sunlight bursting through or a breeze of low humming bass. And all of this seems to translate an unholy odyssey, a trial of the Gods. And all of that comes with a massive amount of raging riffs and pulverizing drums. Yes, III has it all! Dynamic, scorching, uplifting, aggressive and majestic! III has it all!
