Earthbong – One Earth, One Bong


Earthbong – One Earth, One Bong
Self-released/Sludgelord Records – 2018/2019
Doom
Rated: ***

Hazy wisps of smoke permeate the atmosphere with a villainous odor and a poisonous spirit. And there you are, on a worn down couch drinking lukewarm beer; sitting and just waiting for something. Something ominous and creeping. And those twisted moments when one needs aromatic fumes to distort reality also needs slow heavy metal to set the pace. Three-piece Earthbong from Kiel, Germany self-released their One Earth, One Bong record December last year. It is the perfect soundtrack for such a night. And it now becomes available through Sludgelord Records as well. On it are four tracks that will have you hypnotized and zoning out through a seemingly endless array of slow riffs and intense drums. Only to be awakened by the beastly growls or an accidental and minute, speed-up. Those never last long and soon you will drift away again on those majestic doom clouds. This is doom! Slow malicious doom. And what’s not to love about that?
